Knight “Ryder”

We’ve renamed Knight to “Ryder” and he’s thriving. He is working on house training, but we’re getting there! We go on lots of walks and activity to keep him busy. In fact we just got in from a 3-mile walk a little bit ago! He loved it! We sent off a DNA test earlier this week… Read more »


My family and I adopted Sherilyn 1yr and 8 months ago. We decided it was time for a new friend only days before my birthday! At our first meeting she was shy and timid, yet something drew us to her. After a couple weeks, she turned into a brand new pup! Now she loves roughhousing… Read more »

My Boy Scout

We got Scout in 2019 and we ended up keeping his name. I can’t express in words how much I love this dog. I suffer from anxiety and when my stress level is high Scout always checks on me by looking at me and Sniffing my face. Also when ever I cough or sneeze he… Read more »

Billie & Bella forever friends

We adopted Bella from NEAS about 3 years ago, she is a laid back loving girl. She loves playing with her cousin, Bohdi, so we thought she needed a live in playmate. Back at NEAS we almost left empty handed when we were told of a puppy who was just coming out of isolation after… Read more »


My family has always included a dog and I have loved all of them BUT they were “family” dogs and always tended to choose my son as their “human”. My children are now grown and have gone out into the world to find their way. So, I become somewhat of an empty nester. In June… Read more »


We adopted Chloe almost 7 years ago and she is the best thing to ever happen to us! She is very loving and truly one of the best dogs! Our house wouldn’t be the same without her! Thank you NEAS!
