We wanted to thank everyone that helped us get our new fur baby Dooser! Dooser is now Dozer. The kids renamed him because he likes to bulldoze you over when playing and since he's a bulldog they said it fits! Dozer has come home and has been such a delight. We added him to our family to help our son with his therapy. He is already attached to him and where ever he goes Dozer is right there with him. He is starting to adjust well to his new surroundings. He loves to go in the car and is eager to go for a ride. He loves to go outside and run and play with the kids. Although that is only for a small amount of time before he needs to take a nap in his new comfy bed! He loves to give kisses and loves all the attention that he is getting. This is a new start for him and a great addition to our family. We are truly grateful to have the opportunity to have him join our family!
