Ellis & Mac A. Roni

I met Mac A. Roni through Loyal Rescue in Ottawa. My aunt always had chihuahuas and I knew I wanted one too, especially considering the fact that I lived in an apartment. Mac is half Chihuahua half Pomeranian, but he ended up being perfect. He sheds like crazy!

Nicole & Inara

It all started with my previous dog, Minnie.

Minnie was a little shitzu weighing only 9 lbs who always had the tip of her tongue sticking out. I called it The Blep.

Emily & Oliver

Paws Fur Thought then contacts the organizations that have an available dog and that’s how I was matched with my best friend.
