Happy Tail for Dozier!

Happy Tail for Dozier!

Dozier 1My wife and I adopted a small terrier mix when we lived in Florida.  We had only been married for short while so this was our first child.  He lived for almost 14 years and in that time we had moved back to Fargo and had 3 children.  He brought us so much happiness and enjoyment, so it was a difficult time when he passed away.  We had discussed getting another dog, but with our busy agendas and 3 very active kids we thought it would be best to wait a while.  As the children got older, they began to ask about the possibility of getting a new pet.  We had a good discussion about what it takes to take care of a dog and they would need to help out.  So we began to look at possibilities, but we were in no hurry.  We wanted to find the right dog for our family.  We were leaning toward a puppy until we saw some of the older dogs available on the 4 Luv of Dogs site.  After looking at some of the comments from the foster families on some of the available dogs, we came across Sunny (now known as Dozier). Dozier 4

We had the initial meeting with Dozier and he was the perfect fit.  Especially after we performed the 2 week trial and he was able to get used to us and we got used to him.  The whole family loves Dozier and we love him.  He as such a nice personality and so well mannered.  He hasn’t met anyone that he doesn’t like.  He loves to cuddle and be petted and loved.  He waits patiently every day for the kids to come home from school so he can get more attention.  He enjoys going on walks and exploring the neighborhood.  We told the children that since Dozier has had 2 ACL surgeries, he will need to have regular exercise to stay healthy.  The children have responded by making sure he gets walked every day.  We are looking forward to having a great future with Dozier and making many happy adventures.

Thank you 4 Luv of Dogs for helping us find the perfect dog for our family and making the adoption process such a great experience.
