Before and After

Here is Harry (formerly Brendan), a poor terrified dog who was rescued after he was seen dodging cars on Route 128 in Needham.  Harry was so terrified, that the guy who rescued him wasn't able to catch him the first time he tried, so he went to McDonald's and bought a hamburger and used that to win his trust.  We were happy to help the Needham Animal Control Officer by taking Harry in at the shelter.

And here's the happily ever after part of our story.

Harry was adopted by a wonderful couple who have a lovely Golden Retriever that is now Harry's playmate.  Harry spent the summer going to all sorts of fun places on his family's boat.  His mom says Harry assumed right away that he belonged right next to his dad at the command center.  It's hard to imagine how his dad was able to manage the boat before he had Harry's help.

    This is Harry's mom.....thanks for all the kind words. But the reality is: we've adopted a few dogs,and they were the sweetest and most appreciative dogs we've ever had. Pleae, please adopt a shelter dog - you won't be disappointed. Shelter dogs rock!
