Dee & Chester

The twins - Casey and Chester - yes they are brothers! Casey joined our lives May 11, 2001 at age 2, he was given up due to biting a child, no fault of his own, then on July 31, 2004 his brother ends up needing a home due to a family divorce and move. How could we place his very own brother? They are two peas in a pod for sure and loving farm life!
Patrick joined our family in August 13, 1999, as a puppy, he was at a NJ shelter and needed a pin in his leg he could barely walk. After his surgery he is doing fine, became a Therapy Dog and now age 10 and loving life! He loves his visits to the nursing home!
Bentley came to us from Long Island, found left at a shelter, he joined our family October 5, 2007 and never left!

Andy one of the NH19, came to live with us on September 1, 2001, we fostered and decided to adopt him, he is now a Therapy Dog and doing fine at age 14!!!

Spin, an English Setter joined us at age 1 on October 8, 2005. He was being re-homed by his breeder in MA who was divorcing and down sizing. He often sees his sister Lyla and brother Jonah who both live in NJ.
