Me and my wife came in to Plano Animal Shelter to just see if there were any dogs we were interested in before we went to another one. We saw multiple dogs we liked at the other shelter but decided to stop at Plano before the other shelter opened. While in Plano we saw one 4 month old lab mix puppy (Claus) that we really liked. He was a little younger than what we wanted and we wanted a female. We went to two more places and no one just gave us this wow factor like Claus gave us. We just fell in love with how Claus was so sweet and gentle. So we went straight back to Plano, saw him again and adopted him that day. Unfortunately he didn't get to go home with us since he wasn't fixed yet. But 3 days later we were able to take our fur baby home and have enjoyed every minute with him. He still is a puppy so patience is key with him. However we wouldn't change a thing and he was our Christmas present hence the name Claus.

6 yrs ago today (12/19/2013) my husband and I came to the shelter to adopt a catahoula dog. Unfortunately for us there was no connection. Then a worker told us about a VIP dog that everyone loved but has been brought back to the shelter 2x before. His name was Colt and he is a pit bull. We were apprehensive at first but decided to at least meet the dog. There was that immediate connection. He was so loving and friendly we knew we found our dog. Since then we have moved to the country and have adopted two other dogs. COLT has been a big part of our family and we just love him. The only issue we have is that when you are sitting in a chair he wants to sit in your lap and at night he wants to be in our bed.

8/6 I adopted Daisy, a 7yr old female mix Labrador/Retriever. Daisy is adjusting wonderfully to her new home with us. She is smart; understands commands 'sit', 'stay' & 'come.' She also knows 'no' & 'no touch' such that when I give her food or a treat I tell her 'no touch' & to look at me which she does and then when I say ok she then eats or takes the treat. Her fav words are 'walk in the park' which she responds to excitedly and sits waiting for me to get the leash. She is house broken and comes to us when she needs to go out. I'm so glad I found my new fur-friend. She is a calm dog and only recently has shown her territorial side when she chased rabbits around our yard & out the gate and she sat next to the gate acting as protector of our yard. We are transitioning her to Nutro Senior food and feeding her twice daily; once in the morning & once in the afternoon/evening.
