As most of you may already know a big part of our mission is to help shelter dogs find loving and forever homes and as such we donate 5% of our profits to Marin Humane. This amazing non-profit shelter is where we adopted our two tiny muses (Watson and Sherlock) from.
With all of the wonderful orders from the past year we are able to sponsor the adoption fees of two senior dogs! You might ask why we chose to sponsor senior dogs. The simple fact is that dogs over the age of 10 are much more difficult to adopt out. Senior pups are often more subdued in shelters and as such don’t tend to catch the eye of potential pawrents. Additionally, senior dogs can sometimes come with health issues that most people aren’t willing to deal with. By covering the adoption fees of these older and wiser pups means it gives adopters one less expense to worry about and hopefully encourage them to consider a dog they might have otherwise overlooked.
And now on to the fun part! One of the lucky pups that we sponsored the adoption fee of is Susie, an 11 year old, 8 lb Chi Mix.
According to Marin Humane “Susie is an adorable Chihuahua mix who is looking for a perfect retirement home. Although she isn't a puppy, Susie is cute, energetic and full of life. She takes a bit of time to warm up to new people, but once you are in, you are in.
Not much seems to bother this girl, and she would make a great companion for a family so long as children learn to be respectful of Susie.
Susie enjoyed meeting other small dogs she here, even helping some of the shy dogs come out of their shell. She would enjoy life with other dogs.
This little girl has so much love to offer, and can't wait to find a home of her very own.”
We wish Susie the best of luck in her search for her furever home and can’t wait for her to find the perfect family to spend her retirement years with!

Since writing this post we've been informed by Marin Humane that Susie has since been moved to a different shelter where she awaits her forever home. We'll be selecting another pup to sponsor.
