Arrival Story:
I had wanted a dog all of my life, and when I finished graduate school, my then-husband promised that he would try to find an apartment that would allow us to have one (IF I moved to NJ for his job.) So I moved to NJ and we began looking. I have been volunteering for various pet rescue/adoption groups for several years, so we took trips to local shelters and looked for dogs on One day we took a trip to Petsmart to buy something for the cat, and there was Kirby, lying in a crate looking sad. I was interested in finding a Lab mix, so when the volunteer took Kirby out of his crate to meet us, it was love at first site. We were able to take him home that day, and he sat in my lap in the car on the way home.

The top photo (below) shows Kirby and his brother Opus. The second photo is of Kirby in the swim pond at the dog park. The third photo shows what he looked like when we adopted him - this was the photo that was on Petfinder. The bottom photo is Kirby and his Mom.
