Fulfilling Friendships

Real-life stories of unconditional love, companionship, and limitless snuggles

Pat and Brady

Three’s Company!

Elmer adopted Buster and Boxer from the Animal Allies Humane Society in Duluth, MN after the pair’s previous owner moved into assisted living and was not able to bring them with him. Elmer saw the adorable duo on the shelter’s website and fell in love. He drove two hours to adopt them, even though Boxer, an 8-year-old Shih Tzu mix has only one eye, and Buster, a pudgy 9-year-old Maltese mix has a collapsed trachea. The trio is one big, happy family now!
