My family and I were looking to add a second dog to our family for awhile. I would go to NEAS at least once every two weeks to check out what kind of dogs were there. Then, one day when I went, I found a dog that I fell in love with right away. When I got to him, he had just gotten taken out of isolation, 30 minutes prior. Paxton, formerly Hayes, has been the perfect addition to my family. He and my other dog are often found playing and napping together. He is the biggest lovebug and his favorite thing to do is cuddle, and literally melt into your arms. I am so lucky and blessed to have found him.
What's the Scoop?

My parents, niece and I came in back in April to look at dogs. We had no intention of getting a puppy as we knew that they were a lot of work. We first met a dog named Chloe that was beautiful and friendly but a little too much dog for us. We were speaking with a volunteer and she said that she had just the dog for us! She brought us to see Tonka and Tonka gave us one look and all four of us fell in love! She was brought into a room & we played with her a bit and decided to take her home. We renamed her Molly on the way home and at first she was very shy and timid but once she warmed up to us knowing we weren’t going to leave her and would be snuggling her all the time she very quickly let us into her heart! Now I can’t imagine my life without her! She really adds so much sunshine and love to my life!
On a weekend in July, we took a turn into the parking lot at NEAS and found the newest member of our family. Daisy, who also answers to her endearing nickname ‘The Nugget,’ is a wonderful, spirited Chihuahua. She has been a perfect fit for our family. Daisy loves her older brother, Sammy, our Labrador. They play together, chase squirrels, fetch sticks, and are often found side by side. Sometimes we wonder if Daisy thinks she’s a Labrador! We are so happy to have found her 🙂
Last Sunday, we came in with hopes of leaving with a new best friend, and that we did. We adopted our little 8 week old puppy (formerly Mike) who we named Shane. He’s such a happy boy and so fun, and playful. His favorite things are cuddling up on someone and taking a nap, or playing with his toys. I’m so glad we came in, and found him, he truly is a best friend and a little lovebug.
Our Family can’t say enough or how much we love Ramsey and enjoy having him in our home and part of our lives. He is a very playful and loving puppy who enjoys sleeping right along side of his family. He has recently been to the vet for his first check up where he was given a clean bill of health. At 10 weeks he is doing very well adjusting to a schedule and working with us on his daily training. Soon he will be starting his obedience classes which will help him mature into a great adult. We are very happy to have found him at NEAS and we are very lucky to have him in our hearts and home.
This video reflects what it’s like to work or volunteer at a no-kill animal shelter. We care for, love, and cherish the dogs that come through our doors and remember them long after they are gone, gone, gone to their forever homes!
