When I saw his face on the website I knew I found my new friend. I'd been "dogless" for almost a year after losing Charlie, my 16 year old lhasa apso mix. We adopted Walter (the name he was given by animal rescue and we decided to not change it) 2 weeks before Christmas. Walter has settled in and is now running the show. He may only be 14 pounds (he was 12 pounds at adoption - I think he enjoys his cookie snacks) but he has a big dog personality. He loves to cuddle and play catch. He has the run of the house. I wish he could tell me about his "first life" and I call him my little survivor. He certainly was lucky to be picked by Hopalong and I was lucky enough to find him. Thank you for bringing us together.
