Roo & Cheyanne

 

Cheyanne & Teddy

 

Roo & Cheyanne

  Look Roo! We brought home a new friend for you. Her name is Cheyanne. For Roo our Belgian Shepard, life started off pretty rough. Someone found him on the streets, dragging one of his rear legs behind him, and took him to our local Humane Society. We got a call asking us to foster this little shepard puppy for several weeks after they amputated his back leg. After a few days it became obvious to us that this dog had something special, so there was no way we were sending him back for adoption by another family. Roo is now a certified therapy dog who’s great with kids, the elderly and infirm, and he makes regular visits to the childerns hospital and the senior citizen homes. But he is also great with other dogs, and was in need of a doggy friend. So we adopted Cheyanne, a beautiful copper and cream husky puppy. It was best friends at first sight as Roo showed her the ropes and shared his bed with Cheyanne. After a long day of play, Cheyanne would curl up with her teddy bear for a well earned nap. When she got older, as with most friends growing up, the playing included rough housing in the backyard. They are both full grown now and are still best friends, but nothing tops the puppy photos of when Roo meet his new best friend.

  1. Daniel,
    Huskies are the next best things to wolves! (Puppies may even be better)

  4. Great story and lovely pups

  5. Daniel, this is crazy, when I was growing up I always wanted to call my little boy Cheyenne & I’ve always wanted a husky. Isn’t that spooky!?! Roo sounds like a very special dog. Great photos 🙂

    • Yes he is! He is now 5 years old and a trained therapy dog. He visits local hospitals, especially the children’s wing. He also visits a senior citizens home near our house. He is great with everybody. My wife is the one that takes him on the visits (and gets all the credit) and she has many stories about people who were withdrawn and would speak to others, but they will open up to Roo. It is amazing what a dog can do.
