Rukus (Adopted!)


hi… my name is Rukus, an’ i’m a 5-6 month old Collie mix an’ I came in with Snoopy.  i’m a really sweet guy, an’ love spending time with humans cuz they pet me an’ love on me an’ give me treats!  i gotta confess somethin’ tho, i think the reason my name is Rukus is cuz when i came here i had a different name, so when Christine came into the room me an’ Snoopy were in, the first thing i did was bark at her… so she re-named me Rukus (i can’t remember my old name, and i kinda like “Rukus”).  i still bark a bit, but that’s just cuz there’s lots an’ lots of stuff goin’ on, an’ i’m still a pup, so i dunno yet how else to act!  when i first got here, i was a lil bit shy, but i figured out real quick the humans here are real nice!  i’m workin’ on bein’ more outgoing like Snoopy is, cuz i wanna find a forever home.

i’d love a real home of my own.  bein’ in a house for a while was sooooo nice after bein’ out an’ about with Snoopy by ourselves, so i wanna talk ’bout the kinda forever home i’d like.  i’m a real nice boy, i walk real easy on a leash, and i like to play with Snoopy an’ other puppies lots… so i’d be VERY happy to go to a home with a doggy brother or sister. and, i’ve got lots of energy, an’ i know after i’ve been in a play group, i’m kinda tired… hey, that’s sneaky of our humans… they put us in play groups so we can run off our energy then we sleep real good at night, an’ sometimes we’re all more quiet in the kennel after play-time… but that’s k cuz i have lots of fun!  i heard Denver an’ Dakota get to go to a home together cuz they’re bro’s, but me an’ Snoopy don’t got to go to a home together.  i really like other doggies, so i don’t think it’d be too hard to find a good brother or sister for me… but if ya want me an’ Snoopy together, that’s cool too!  i haven’t met alot of small humans yet, but cuz i’m me an’ a sweet boy, i’d probly be ok with them.  i dunno ’bout cats yet, they look like fun to chase, but i think some humans have “rules” ’bout chasin’ cats… silly rules!  anyways, cuz i like runnin’ an’ playin’ so much, i’d love a big yard with a fence, kinda like we have here.  i dunno, i think Christine will help find a great match for me cuz that’s what she does.  if ya wanna learn more ’bout me, how to adopt me an’ stuff, check out

k, that’s all i got for now… plus, i’m gettin’ ready to go out an’ play with Snoopy… that’s way more fun than this “blog” thingy!  bye!!

I'm still a pup but I can keep up with Snoopy!

Snoopy (Adopted!)


Hey humans, what’s doin?  My name is Snoopy and I’m a Shar Pei mix, and I’m ’bout a year old.  I ended up here ‘cuz some nice woman found me and my roomie, Rukus, runnin’ ’round as strays, and she kept us ’til they had room for us here.  But, we don’t gots to go to a home together like Denver and Dakota.  So far, I like bein’ here.  There’s lots to see what with all the dogs in the kennel and our humans.  They take real good care of us, feedin’ us good food, and making sure we’re healthy.  We get to play outside in a big yard and run ’round playin’ (like me and Rukus do cuz we’re roommies), and we get to go on walks, and on Sundays we get to go on longer walks called “Pack Walks”.

Last Sunday, Christine walked me, and when we came back inside to cool off for a lil’ bit before goin’ to get breakfast, I gave Christine a hug.  She made a big deal ’bout how cute that was, and so did the other humans hangin’ with us, too, like Jana, Valerie, and I think Chuck probly thought it was cute even tho he didn’t say anything’.  I’m real gentle like when I give hugs, so I oh so softly climb into their lap and put my head over their shoulder, then the human’ll wrap their arms ’round me and give me kisses on my head.  I’m gonna try this on more humans cuz I like gettin’ special attention like that… it’s almost better than treats!

Anyways, I wanna talk ’bout the kinda forever home I want, but I’ll wait ’til it’s my turn to blog again.  I’ve heard our humans talkin’ ’bout a big event thingy called “Art Unleashed” that’s goin’ on tonight.  Hercules was nice enuff to tell me and Rukus ’bout it, even tho i think he told us just so he could show off how smart he is.  So the thingy tonight is suposbly cool for humans to go to cuz they can buy stuff called “artwork” and the “money” they spend all goes to HSGKC to help our humans pay for stuff they need to take care of us like they do.  I dunno what “money” is either, but I think it’s important… and I don’t wanna ask Hercules anything else to puff up his ego. K, what I’m gettin’ at is you should go ‘cuz if you go and spend money, it helps take care of us.

I gots to go, it’s breakfast time!!  See ya’!


I like to give hugs and get loved on by humans!


Rukus tries to catch me but I’m too fast!
