How I Met My Dog

Wrangler and The Ostheimer Family

Dog: Wrangler
Adopter: The Ostheimer Family
Location: Uxbridge, MA
Adopted From: Pawfect Life

“After our wonderful black lab, Jake died two years ago we talked about getting another dog to keep seven year old, Jenny, company. We had been a two-dog family for years. It felt like something, someone was missing. Should we get a puppy? Our niece worked at an animal shelter. Should we ask her to help? But it wasn't until I read the article in the Boston Globe on February 4, 2017, "Where Dog Lovers Go To Meet Their Match," that I knew that's where we'd find our new family member. And we did. We were matched with Wrangler.

The website was easy to use. The descriptions of the dogs were complete, the pictures, telling. Information about cats, other dogs, riding in a car, security issues—all invaluable, and pictures showing snuggling and sharing were important to see. The questions were extensive, thoughtful and interesting. It was actually fun to fill out.

We feel blessed to have been matched with such a special, loving, intelligent dog.” Love and licks to Wrangler and his new family.
