We lost our 15 year old golden retriever a few months before adopting Rache. We decided the house was too empty and quiet without a dog. We were looking around at different shelters for a while up in our home state of New Hampshire. My mother in law had stumbled across NEAS website on a search. We decided to come down and look at the dogs that were available and see which one called to us. We walked through the kennels a couple of times and every time we walked by Rache’s kennel she was standing in the same spot and had those sad eyes looking at you. We knew she was the one. She came home with us that day! She is so patient with our son and loves everyone. She has been happily living the spoiled dog life for over a year and a half now.
