    Small Dog: Stella

    Stella’s owners writes:

    Stella is a 1 1/2 year old Miniature Australian Shepherd. She goes to work every day with her mom or dad, who both work outdoors around the Gallatin Valley. She really enjoys working with them where she can run and play then ends her day playing with her favorite duck before cuddling up for bed. On the weekends she enjoys camping, playing with the other dogs, boating, and even enjoys rides on the snowmobile. She truly is a one of a kind dog!!

    Medium Dog: Junebug

    Junebug’s owner writes:

    Junebug was born on a farm outside of white hall, and we choose her when picking out our puppy because of her energy. Ever since, our lives have been much better, and more challenging with this adorable dog around to take us along for the ride. We've had Junebug for about 2 years now, and she is a border collie, with a very long tale. She enjoys tennis balls very much, and plays with our cat Tiger Shrimp, and our older dog, Sunny, a lot. She has a slight fear of thunderstorms, but when they come and go, we sit by her, and keep her company till the storms past or she feels comfortable. We love Junebug with all our hearts, and we hope you will enjoy seeing her in our eyes as well.

    Extra Large Dog: Boo

    Boo’s owner writes:

    Boo is the best dog and friend anyone could ask for. We rescued him at 6 months old and will be celebrating his 3rd birthday next week. He is a very intelligent Pit Bull/Australian Shepard mix. He loves car rides, hiking, toys, and above all else, he loves people.
