Some dogs just need a job, and Theo is one of them. A large, handsome German Shepherd with a super high drive and lots of smarts, he was a poor fit for a regular home. But since he joined our pack, Theo has been thriving. He is a focused and devoted partner in the field, and he loves the challenges of his work inspecting watercraft for tiny invasive mussels. His reward is a ball, with which he is completely obsessed, but he will turn anything (even unopened cans of tuna!) into a toy if you give him the chance. Now that he is happy and fulfilled in his work, Theo has proven to be a closet cuddle bug. We are more than happy to give him all the snuggles he needs!

 

Rue was given to WD4C by a concerned donor, who knew that the pup’s high energy and unbelievable drive to work put her at high risk for ending up at a shelter. Rue arrived on Christmas Eve, her crate decorated with green and red ribbons. At 13 weeks old, she was a tornado of speed and enthusiasm. Thirteen months later, work is her play. She would rather search than go to the dog park, and nothing thrills her more than the sight of her working vest. Even at her young age she can ignore distractions and maintain her focus over hours of searching. Rue is going to be a gift that keeps on giving.
