Sheba

Posted on July 7, 2020 at 9:00 AM by Autumn Stimpson

I adopted Sheba with my mom several years ago. Her name was different then. She was a mopey sad little dog that wouldn’t even look at us through the window. A year old at the time we brought her home and instantly saw the personality out of her! The absolute most loving gentle pit bull I’ve had! I have an extreme special needs cat and a kitten that gives her heck but she’s still so sweet! She’s 8 years old now and just as much a puppy now as she was when I got her!

Sig

Posted on June 29, 2020 at 9:19 AM by Autumn Stimpson

I spent a good few weeks scouring the shelter for an older dog that would be able to fit into my already 2 dog crew, Sig seemed like she wasn't having the greatest time with all the noise and strange people leering at her every couple minutes and the first time I observed her she was gnawing on one of her paws, but when she looked up she had that little intelligent spark in her eyes and after a short visitation where she was incredibly timid, not even interested in a treat we offered her, I started the process to adopt her. However some issues with a double microchip nearly stymied the process, ultimately we sorted it out and Sig has now found a comfortable place atop her favorite pillow on the end of the couch for the last year and half at my residence. Being 10 years old she is not without her quirks, but still has the spunk to go after her tiny tennis balls or dragon stuffed animal. I included a picture of the day I adopted her in Dec 2018, and another picture from June 2020

Peeta

Posted on June 22, 2020 at 4:24 PM by Autumn Stimpson

I had been searching for a new furry friend for over a year and since I’m a teacher and had to work from home during the pandemic along with summer break right after I knew it was the perfect time. Unfortunately, everyone else had the same idea and many shelters were empty. Kept watching all the local shelter websites until a blurry volunteer photo appeared on the Plano shelter website. Decided to give it a shot and set up an appointment and it was love at first sight! I get to spend all my time with him until the next school year starts. Thank you Plano Animal Shelter for allowing me to find this amazing dog.

P.S. I just visited family down in the valley and decided to take Peeta on his first beach trip.
