Portia & Presley are two precious gems

Hi three months ago not long after my beloved Roxy died I decided it was tim  for a new dog, so I decided to adopt a dog.

Portia & Presley

As I viewed the website and saw the pictures of Presley and Portia I knew instantly I wanted to adopt them. They where so similar to my Roxy so I then went to the shelter and instantly fell in love with them when I saw them. I have since then adopted the both of them and they are the greatest things in my life.

Every morning when the sun is out, they love to lie out in the sun and sun themselves until I grab the car keys and then they know it's time to get in the car and they start jumping around and go straight to the front door. They love there car rides especially looking out the window.

We have had our ups and downs when it comes to walking. Portia is great but Presley prefers to just sit there but he is getting better especially when he knows there is a treat for his reward. I decided to leave there names the same as I love there names it suits them both especially Presley cause he does sometimes think he is the king but he knows who the boss is. Whereas Portia she is a mummy's girl and follows me everywhere I go - she never strays to far away from me.

I would like to thank the shelter for these two precious gems and to say what a fantastic job all of you do at the shelter and that you do make it a better life for these animals.
