Adoption success stories of dogs in New Paltz, NY




Interview with Rachel M.

Two Years Old  |  Southern Hound Mix  |  Perfect Pets


Rachel and her husband adopted Jarvis last June after losing their previous dog. They endured two long months before deciding that was long enough not having a dog, so they looked online at Perfect Pets and found Jarvis. He came from a crowded shelter in Georgia where his previous owners had turned him in because they couldn’t care for him any longer. He was two years old and only had three legs, but his spirit was undaunted.

"He has yet to meet a person he doesn't like. He's the worst guard dog ever."

He’s friendly to everyone he meets, and loves any time spent outside of the house, whether it’s a nice long hike or an afternoon running errands. On the days where his owners stay home he brings them joy and purpose, giving them a reason to get outside and putting a smile on their face. He loves spending time with his owners and though he hasn’t quite figured out that he’s with them for good, he still follows them around and cries when they leave the house without him. He loves everyone, but them most of all.
