I was lucky enough to become this dog’s mom when I met his dad. Our vet called him a “lemon” and he had every medical problem in the world and never stopped barking. Despite that, he was the sweetest, kindest and most loyal dog in the world. He loved to cuddle and give kisses and would always make you feel better if you were upset. He was taken way too soon at the young age of 10 but will be in our hearts forever! I love you Barn!!
A bait dog from a fight dog ring that I (Alex) rescued prior to meeting Jason. We were a packaged deal and she and Jason forged their own special relationship. We had 12.5 years with this sassy lady who always kept us on our toes and taught us the importance of loving with your whole heart.

The 4th of July fireworks can be very stressful for dogs. Loud noises from fireworks can cause them to run under the bed scared or pace the room nervously. Fortunately, we have 4 products available in our store at Urban Pooch Canine Life Center that dog-parents can use to reduce their dog’s anxiety during independence day.
