Two of our three dogs are JR’s alum! We adopted Flora (formerly Feta) on February 14, 2014 at the age of about 10 weeks old. Flora is our Border Collie mix who loves to chase all manner of animal out of our yard and up trees. She loves long walks, playing in the water, and belly rubs. Flora was an adorable puppy and has grown into a beautiful dog. Marley, an Australian Shepherd mix, joined our family about six weeks ago, in early August, after being surrendered by her former owner to JRs. Marley is three and came to us knowing tons of commands and being fully potty trained. Someone spent a lot of time training her. She has been a wonderful addition to our family. She is a high-energy playmate for Flora, which is what we were looking for. Marley, too, loves long walks and playing in the water and she is almost always ready to snuggle. Although Marley still gets a little stressed when we leave the house (we think maybe she was left alone for long periods of time by her previous owners), she does calm down in her crate and she’s very happy to see us when we return.

We can’t imagine our lives without these two beautiful girls, or without our Boxer rescue, Jessie. We encourage all of our friends and family to adopt through JRs!
