Chewie is a Shih Tzu, which means little lion. He was a Christmas gift. He was the runt of the litter and my mom picked him out for me and hid him at my grandma’s until it was Christmas. I was 11 so I thought Santa gave him to me. He was 2 months old when I got him, and he was  waiting under the tree with a red bow. I named him Chewie because he sounds like Chewbacca when he wants attention. He is now 6 years old still crazy. He loves the snow and loves his cheese. He is very brave and will protect the house from other animals by barking in the window of course. He shows his teeth when he gets mad or confused. He loves snuggles and attention.

Roxanne is currently a 3-year-old Rottweiler. Her family adopted her at a place called Cascade Kennels at 8 weeks old. She has a huge most caring heart. But if you seem bad to her, she will let you know do not touch her. She has a human like personality where sometimes she thinks she’s a lap dog though. She likes to chase shadows, sleep with someone or you must make the couch for her like a bed to sleep on. She loves snacks and likes to play in her pool during summer. She guards the back yard and will protect her family at all costs. She loves snuggles and kisses, she will lay next to you to make sure you’re ok if you seem weird. ~ Owner Chloe Mercer
