These two brothers came into our home of four daughters (human) and brought nothing but smiles to everyone. They are both sweet and really lap up all the attention they get. They are also “boys” in that they are active, always digging or wrestling, except when they’re sleeping.

Murphy (formerly Marvin), the brindle, is smaller than his brother, but more adventurous. Max really wants your attention, especially if Murphy is getting your attention.

Our home is a warmer and happier place.

His name was Lenny when we went to adopt him but we changed his name to Guillermo. He’s like our baby. We have had him since 2015, He is happy and we’re happy with him too. And I give thanks to this shelter for the kind people they have. And also for saving all the animals.

We adopted Tucker (formerlly Eli) on August 27, 2017. He was in a litter of 4 or 5 other “E” names. We would love to hear how they are doing. We instantly fell in love with Tucker. We thought that our family was complete but now having Tucker with us, we are finally COMPLETE!!

Only a few weeks all together and Tucker is already a love bug. He enjoys playing in the yard and then getting cozy on the couch for a good nap! It was worth the drive down (twice) and getting there over an hour early!

Last Monday my fiancé and I were lucky to adopt Onyx and bring her into our family.  I just want to let you all know she is doing GREAT! She was so shy and maybe even fearful while she was with you all – so much so that she wouldn’t look at Douglas and me for hours and I know it took her a while to warm up to staff.  I am happy to let you know she has become a social butterfly!  She is such a sweet girl and loves meeting new people now.  Luckily she is able to come to work with me most days.  She loves coming with me and my coworkers and clients love having her here too!  

She has done such a good job since coming home.  She has learned the commands: come, sit, lay down, wait, and off – the last one is for when she occassionally sneaks up on the couch! 

She is still a little unsure of other dogs at times – except for her brother! But she is getting better when she meets other dogs.  She loves going for car rides, to the woods, LOVED the beach and does so good walking on her leash.  

I want to thank you all for taking care of her and let you all know that she is doing amazing and has completely come out of her shell this last week.  She is the perfect addition to our little family and we are so lucky to have such an amazing dog.

At the end of August, my husband and I decided that we wanted to adopt a dog. The adoption counselor asked us many questions in an effort to help us find our new addition to the family. She brought us to Peppermint. We fell in love instantly. We sat in the room to get to know Peppermint. We loved everything about her and she was everything we ever wanted in a dog. We decided to go ahead with the adoption.

A few days later, Peppermint came home with us! After only a month, she has helped change our lives, for the better, and is such a loving snuggle bug. On occasion, Peppermint gets to go to school with me. She really enjoys coming to school with me, and walks around like she owns it!

Peppermint goes everywhere with us! She is very well behaved and such a bundle of joy. The best part of our day is when we come home from work. She is so excited to see us and races all over the house. She finally lands on the couch, in our laps.

We couldn’t be happier with our beautiful girl. She is enough to brighten any day!

Fletcher joined our home Mid August and has taught all members of the family to put shoes away! He has also mastered the art of getting slippers off your feet when you sit down.

Fletcher loves to cuddle, run and has adapted to this highly active family. He has enjoyed camping on weekends, loves car rides and has recently learned he has a voice. His howl sounds much like a wolf! but once darkness falls he is usually snoring.

We got Jerry in August of 2017, just a few weeks ago ,and we already love him so much. He was welcomed by my three children and our little Frenchie Millie. He is such a great, easy going dog. He loves sleeping in our bed (literally on top of us!) and running around in the yard.

I adopted Almond from the shelter on August 19, 2017. I changed his name to Sheldon (if you watch the Big Bang Theory, that is who I named him after). His name fits him perfectly! He even likes watching the TV!

He was a bit nervous the night he arrived but didn’t take him long at all to adjust! That next morning I found him sleeping at the foot of my bed. Now he sleeps either beside me or sometime I wake up and he is on my chest! LOL

He is very loving but also very playful! He has met my grandchildren and plays/loves them too! He has a favorite toy mouse that I gave him that he carries everywhere in his mouth! He loves to be cuddled and he purrs up a storm! I have to say it was the best decision I made taking him home that day! As I write this he is sleeping right beside me on the couch!

Hi! I am Bandit,

When I arrived at NEAS, I was lonely and blue – I thought misbehaving was the right thing to do. Then I went to canine reform school, where I labored long and hard. Now I have a loving family and even a big back yard!

I have been with my new family for over a month now. Things are going very well. My “brother” and I LOVE to play football. My “sister” takes me for long walks. My “momma” snuggles with me and my “dad” helps to make sure I behave! Seems I can get a little fresh sometimes. Well, I have to make sure my family is safe from the squirrels, birds and the wind! Oh and the leaves, those pesky leaves.

I would like to say Thank You to everyone at NEAS and Loyal Canines. You believed in me. You knew I was a good boy. I just needed a little help.


Hi! This is Bandit’s “momma.” We are in love with Bandit! He is such a good boy! We are happy that he decided that we were a good family to live with. He has us laughing every day. He loves car rides and going through the Starbucks drive thru to get cookies.

Thank you again to everyone involved with Bandit! I hope that we can continue to give him the doggie life he deserves.
