Adoption Success Story: August

August's adoption was one of those miracles that occasionally crop up at the shelter. He was a lively, energetic pooch and he wasn't doing well being cooped up in the kennel. Many of the regular volunteers feared he wouldn't make it out of the shelter and his undesirable behaviors were becoming more and more challenging to curb. Thanks to Alan he was able to hang on until his adopter, Bob, showed up last month. Bob had seen August on the internet, enjoyed the videos, and drove all the way out from Lodi (over 50 miles from Berkeley) to meet him one Sunday afternoon. Fotunately, Alan was on hand and was able to introduce him to August. Alan was careful to be up front about August's issues so that Bob understood that August would need training and guidance. Thanks Alan!

Since then Bob has been in touch with Alan and he forwarded some pictures of August in his new life. Apparently he goes to work with his dad in his truck and gets to hang out on the job sites. Needless to say, we are thrilled to hear that things are working out.
