Hi all!

So, I wanted to share my adoption story with you guys:

My momma Amanda has been volunteering with Love Wanted in Brooklyn for about 5 years now, but it wasn't until October 2013 that she was able to get another pooch--ie, me!

Love Wanted works with North Shore Animal League, so I'm both a NASAL AND a LW alumni, haha. I was really cute, but no one wanted to take me home, until my Momma convinced HER mom to stop by and see how cute I was.

I gave them my best puppy eyes and sure enough, that did the trick! Apparently my human Grandma had a Beagle named Thunder as a kid and I looked a lot like him, so of course they had to adopt me.

I, of course, immediately peed on Momma to show the world that she was my human now and forever, haha.

I wasn't an easy puppy and I'm sure I drove my poor older sister Esme crazy with my hyperactive antics, but thanks to a really awesome dog trainer, my Momma, and my Dad (Amanda's boyfriend), I am very well behaved and my big sister Esme loves to hang out with me. We like to hunt squirrels together, hehe.

No one's sure what breed I am, but Momma and Dad like to say German Shepherd, Beagle, and Doberman.

Nice to meet everyone!
