“Hello! We just wanted to send some holiday cheer your way. We adopted Strawberry Surfrider back in 2018 and renamed him Gus! He now has a little sister Lena as well. He is the best dog we could have ever asked for! He is always so polite, loves being around people, and he’s learning to socialize with other dogs. His favorite things to do are sunbathe and nap (typically in his sister’s bed). My partner and I recently got engaged and we were lucky enough to have both our rescue pups with us! Thank you for all you do to rescue animals, our family wouldn’t be complete without Gus.
