Elizabeth found a new dog to love, a black cocker spaniel. We renamed him Shadow. We changed his name that his foster mom gave him "Tahoe" to Shadow. His foster mom shared with us that she had to come up with a name quickly because she was on his way to get his paperwork filled out. She was driving and there was a Chevy Tahoe in front of him. Lol. We thought Shadow fit him well, he's black and he's very mellow. He will just follow you around the house like a little shadow.

We found Shadow at a big adoption event Saturday morning in Scottsdale that had hundreds of dogs for adoption.

Shadow is around 4-5 years old. He was on the euthanasia list over in Kingman, he had a big cyst on his neck. The shelter there was trying hard to find a no kill shelter with more of a budget to save him and take care of his cyst. (They couldn't afford to keep him) So a shelter called Benji's Buddies rescued him. His foster mom said he is very loving and definitely an inside dog. If you keep him outside longer than he wants to be he'll howl like a siren. She said that's really his only flaw. He's 95% house trained, she said he's just had a couple accidents while she was gone at work longer than usual so with a new environment to not be surprised if he has a couple. She suggested we buy a crate while he gets used to us when we leave and put him in that just to be safe. So we just bought one and seems to be fine in it. He is very gentle and mellow, cute... Elizabeth loves to have him sit on her lap or lay next to her on her bed. Can't wait for you to meet Shadow!
