Brutus Doo- Proud SAAP Pup

A few years ago I would have never imagined we would adopt a puppy. I thought I had an idea of who "this kind of dog" was going to be. The stigma of a pound puppy, a stray, a rescue. The mistreated or malnourished dogs with misunderstood faces on the Sarah McLaughlin commercials! 
My assumption was that these dogs were jaded. They would bite and have issues. I assumed this because I didn't know about programs like SAAP. 

Yesterday we adopted a pup from the Stray Animal Adoption Program. I found his picture on their facebook page and we filled out an application.
For the last month his foster mom has sent pictures and updates to us.
The communication we have received from the program coordinator and his foster mom have been amazing.
Every step of this process has been made easy and positive. 
From the second we met him he had our hearts.
We were all worried to get another dog after losing our beloved Bubba.
We now know Bubba sent Brutus to us. 

You can tell by his demeanor and his ease in fitting in that he was not only cared for, but loved completely by his fosters. 

He is sweet and snuggily and always at my feet. If we had to pick a name based on his personality it would definitely be shadow:) 

He came to us neutered,microchipped and up to date on shots.
Happy, healthy and loved. He has settled seamlessly into our family. 

We are now a proud SAAP family! 

Anyone who is thinking about getting a dog- young or old, please consider adopting through Stray Animal Adoption Program.

Every thought I ever had on adopting a stray has been completely crushed by this loving organization. If only the human foster care system was ran with this much love and concern for safety and happiness ! 

Thank you SAAP for all you do!
