From the Puppy Raiser…

As my first pup, Jake will forever have a special place in my heart. During the pandemic, we kept each other company every day. I received Jake at the end of my first year of college and now we are both graduates! He knows just how to cheer someone up, always creating smiles. He is a cuddling expert and is always happy to snuggle. I will never forget how he pulled me around with his fast pace, but his pulling became a great strength. It was a joy to work with Jake and be a part of his journey, congratulations to this graduate team! Best wishes to you both. Thank you, GEB for giving me the opportunity to love and raise Jake.  ~ Kat Urbano, Puppy Raiser
