Last January, we adopted our girl Scout (previously named Dottie) from NEAS. She’s been a wonderful addition to our family.

When she first came home with us, she wasn’t fully house trained, was afraid of stairs and cars, and wasn’t quite sure how to react to her new home. But she settled in quickly; she’s come so far.

Our year has been full of firsts. Scout (or Scouty) celebrated her birthday, traveled to visit family in other states, relaxed in the Poconos, dressed as a circus lion for Halloween, entertained many houseguests, and enjoyed her first Christmas. She’s gone swimming, spent time with her “cousins”–both dogs and toddlers — played in the snow and has had many other new experiences.

Scouty’s gained in confidence and size, and is very bonded with us. She’s sweet, funny, and very smart, learning new tricks/commands in a day or two. Scout can also be stubborn, but even then she’s cute.

She loves her walks, meals and snacks, as well as her toys and Nylabones. She wags her tail when her people laugh and tries to come “help” if someone is upset. Most of all, she loves her family and is happiest sleeping on your lap, though she’s a very big lap dog.

Thanks to NEAS for taking care of our Scout until we adopted her! We look forward to many great years to come with her.

On September 11, 2016 we adopted our sweet girl Colbie (then named Pearl) at 16 weeks old.

Yesterday, we took a trip back and we brought Colbie home a sister, Cali ( previously named Thebe) who is a 12 week old bundle of love, snuggles and fun.

As you can see, they are VERY pleased and so are we. Thank you so much for supporting us in finding the perfect fits to complete our family.

Jessie has been the best decision I ever made since the day I brought her home.

As a puppy she spoiled me with her quick learning and easy-going temperament! In adulthood she has been the best hiking companion a girl could ask for and loves coming to work with me every day.

She has an entire network of friends that ask to look after her while I am away. Jessie is widely recognized as the most beautiful, smart and engaging dog anyone has met.

I am forever grateful to NEAS for letting me bring home my best friend over 2 years ago. Cheers!

My partner Rob and I adopted Beans (formerly John J.) from NEAS on October 12th, 2019. He’s an absolute LOVE, and such a smart boy.

After about a week at home, he had completely opened up to us and our space. Beans loves to play – with breaks for lots of pets and head scratchies, of course. He has a pigeon-like meow that is so endearing, which he uses to tell us all about how much he loves his worm toy, and how his day has been so far.

When he’s not playing, he will join us on the couch for a nap right next to us. He’s a very loving, curious companion.

Though he’s only been with us for a few months, we feel so connected to him. We are so lucky to have found our boy, and we are so grateful to NEAS for their work and for helping to unite us!!

My wife and I fell in love with Wembley (previously named Gambit) at first sight.

He already sleeps through the night (mostly) and is so friendly with people and other dogs. Wembley LOVES to snuggle and he is a little power chewer!

The adoption process was perfect. David was great and really took his time to help us find the perfect pup.

Wembley has truly become part of our family.

Nutmeg has adjusted very well to his new home! He’s the most spoiled, and seems very happy. 

Housebreaking is going pretty well he has only had a few accidents thus far. We are very proud of how smart he is; he has learned sit, paw, and to lay down. We are working on roll over but that one is taking some time…LOL.

He is quite the snuggle bug we have been letting him cuddle with us at night in bed while we read. He has truly been a blessing and we cannot wait to see how big he gets! 

Thank you for connecting us we just love him oh-so-much!!!

Polly is adjusting perfectly! From the minute we walked into the house she felt more than comfortable. She eats great, loves running around with my 2 year old son, is super affectionate and also super playful.

She knows the lay of the land and definitely feels curious and comfortable roaming around. We are very lucky to have found each other!

We like to call her Polly Pocket : )

Dancer, now named Moose, is an absolute love bug. He eats and sleeps great, and he does love sharing a bed with someone at night.

I am so grateful the adoption process went so smoothly and I was able to make Moose a part of this family. He absolutely loves people…I call him my social butterfly and he goes crazy with excitement when there’s another dog. Loves his toys, and snuggles.

He is an all around great pup.

I LOVE Melly – who is now called Lucy, so I Love Lucy! 
She is funny and spirited and a love. 
My husband, who didn’t want another cat after our cat passed away at the age of 20, is Lucy’s best friend. 
Lucy loves  him more than me. The minute he sits down, she is on his lap. And he loves it. 
She is the best addition to our family.

Monica is doing great with us and has recently discovered her bark! She loves to play and is full of puppy energy. She loves all her toys that mom gets her, especially her yellow squeaky duck!

Monica is adjusting great around the house and has been great about going outside !

Monica has brought so much love into the family and we are so happy you gave us our sweet girl and favorite snuggle bug.
