Name and age of the dog: Dawson, 2 years
Adoption history: I had lost my older dog Tucker two years earlier and knew it was time to fill that missing piece in my life. My daughter's friend was caring for some puppies for Homeward Animal Shelter, so I went to see them. All of the puppies were named with a November theme and I knew right away that I wanted to adopt the puppy they named Yam. I brought him home and he hasn't left my side since. I changed his name to Dawson, inspired by the character from Dawson & # 39; s Creek. We both love to spend a lot of time outdoors and hang out by the water in the summer. Dawson is very special to me. He's always there to put a smile on my face when I get home. He is the best dog and loves everyone.
