Blue aka Skye, now living in Midland:
"She is the sweetest pup ever! She has enjoyed going to the lake the past few months, especially riding in the car! She’s up by the console as often as she can be. She is going to absolutely hate it when I stop working from home and have to go back in to the office. She sits right by my feet while I work!
You can’t keep her out of the water and mud. What a goofball. Some photos of her with her big sis ... "
Sausage aka Buddy, now living in Midland:

We play that almost every night when it cools down. He loved the snow we had last year. He also loves playing in the water. He may be a little spoiled as well. He has been a great addition to our family."

We've renamed her to Nzuri ("Zuri") which means Good in Swahili.
We love her so much and she is very good! Very strong willed, cuddly, and adventurous!"
Tootsie aka Haven, now living in Midland:
"Thank you so much! Have some photos! :) she loves to play with toys! I love that. I’m so thankful that she was available for me to adopt her. I lost my other dog last year from a brain tumor. So I had just recently decided that another one would want my love! She looked almost like her the brindle color. She definitely has my heart. "
Mickey aka Archie, now living in Hondo:
"Archie is doing great! We decided to rename him before we even adopted him. :) He’s being a good little boy and is very smart for being so young. He loves going for rides and does well going with us everywhere. He is getting along with his two fur brothers, Neng Neng & Bruno (our cats) and has adjusted very well. Thank you for sending the records again! We love him so much!!!"
Wilma, now living in Midland:
"She is settling in amazingly well! We thought about renaming her but Wilma just fits her. She is such a good girl. House training is going great! She loves being outside and exploring. We live out in the country so she has plenty of space to run around. She is going to the vet next week for her checkup.
Thank you for Wilma we are so happy to have her!!"
Tiffany aka Violet, now living in Arizona:
"Hi there! We changed her name to Violet. She’s such a sweet and smart girl! She’s gotten use to her crate and is starting to come when her name is called. She has befriended our other Great Pyrenees, Miles. Violet loves playing with Miles, especially with his tail. Violet also loves to give a morning greeting to our other dogs. She recently went to the vet and she now weights 10.8 pounds! She is doing great and thank you for everything. I’ve attached two pictures of her and two of her and Miles. "
Bruno aka Milo, now living in Austin:
"He is doing great! We’ve called him Milo and he is so smart he knows it already.
He’s super happy and playful - he likes throwing toys and balls and chasing them by himself which is so hilarious to watch!
He’s very smart and he already knows he isn’t allowed in the dishwasher. He just sits nearby and makes sad faces while we do the dishes. He likes to steal our flip flops and make us chase him - he clearly needs lots of toys which we are slowly accumulating! "
Stoney aka Hank, now living in Stonewall:
"He is now 60lbs and is suuuuuper tall! I swear his legs have doubled in length! He’s a naughty boy, but we love him so freaking much. He loves to chew and even after getting him a monthly subscription for heavy duty chew toys, he has managed to chew multiple pairs of sunglasses, an iPhone, my regular glasses, and two mattresses hahahahahaha. He’s lucky he’s cute!!!! He is starting to mellow out a little bit and I can see his puppyness fading slowly. He still likes to torment Dottie (my other dog) but hopefully as he gets older they can be a bit more harmonious ."
Dawn aka Ziva, now living in Fort Stockton:
"Ziva is doing great! She’s a little stinker and a sweetheart! We can’t imagine being without her!"

Mia aka Zoey, now living in Odessa:
"Zoey formally known as Mia is doing very well.
She loves to play, prefers big toys to chew, loves the joint outdoor bike rides, and loves sleeping in her room (crate-always open)She loves sleeping on the floor level. I think since she is so tiny and she is scared of the doggie steps she prefers sleeping on her own at floor level. She hasn’t grown that much but she is growing. Very well behaved and loves chasing my daughter around the house.
We feel very lucky we get to be her family, and I do hope soon to adopt a sister for her."
Marie aka Ada Marie Snowflake, now living in Midland:

Tubby aka Russell, now living in Midland:

Trinket, now living in Kansas:
Gypsy, now living in Midland:
"She’s doing great! ... I can walk her without a leash and she won’t leave my side. I take her to the dog park at least 3 times a week when I’m home off work and she goes about everywhere with us. When she’s old enough we intend to certify her as a support dog for my wife so we can take her anywhere. We are pretty happy and she is spoiled!"

Peppermint, now living in Odessa:
"She hit 19 lbs at the vet on Monday! She has had her third round of shots and is learning commands like. “No bite”, “Sit”, and “drop it”. She is still trying to convince the cat to play, with very horrible reception on the part of the cat. She is a very sweet girl and we wish we had had her sooner! I’ll attach a recent photo. We need to move up a size in her collar and she is eating well. Thanks for everything!"

Myrtle aka Bonnie, now living in Alpine:
Sherlock Bones aka Mr. Bones, now living in Monahans:
" I am Spoiled rotten and gained a few pounds of solid muscle from
running, playing, and jumping.
Tommy is my best friend (because he lets me sleep and play in the big bed) and plays with me
all the time. My favorite toys are squeaky ones and I try to drive mom and dad crazy if they
don't play with me.
The kitchen is my favorite room after the big bed, mom makes it smell so good, and
sometimes they give me a bite of people food which I think is preferable to my treats.
I can jump as high as the counter, so mom never leaves anything close to the edge. Hmmmmm, wonder why."
Wendy aka Frankie, now living in Marathon:
Betty aka Birdy, now living in Marfa:
"Birdy is a peach. Here she is with her most favorite toy, yes, a plunger : 0 — highlight of day includes watching husband throw said plunger and Birdy running everywhere with it totally delighted. She also plays with it by herself, throwing it up in the air and doing circles and pony kicks below it. She’s the best. She also is the best lounger. She goes to bed early and sleeps in every morning on her couch. What a champ."
Remi aka Buck, now living in Alpine:
Donny aka Ryan, now living in Midland:
"He is doing great- he's a mess, loves playing, being outside, and digging up my backyard lol And his favorite thing of all is being with my daughter. They go to sleep together, wake up, he does everything she does, it's amazing. His favorite treat is apple and yogurt blue buffalo cookies lol. We still trying to get the potty training down but we are working on it."
Shelby aka Shelby Ann, now living in Midland:
Maverick, now living in Fort Davis:
"I'm attaching some pics of Maverick. He is doing great. He's very close with me and his "brother" dog Solomon. He loves to play in the yard (especially in his mini pool), watch deer out our window, chase and wrestle with Solomon, go to the county park and snuggle on the couch. He likes mentally challenging toys and is very observant. He occasionally surprises me by doing things like putting one of his toys in the same basket (on the bookshelf) that he sees me put my keys in. He is growing up to be quite tall."
Melody aka Eva, now living in Alpine:
"Eva is absolutely the BEST dog ever! We are all completely smitten with her. She’s a wonderful travel companion - she loves riding with us to the Hill Country to see the deer. And she’s an expert hiker! We’ve taken her to the CDRI and the Fort Davis State Park. She loves to chill with us too, whether we are watching TV or just spending time in the yard.
She’s a sensitive soul with a sweet disposition. And smart, smart, smart! There just couldn’t be a better dog to complete our family. :) We are very grateful to everyone at Grand Companions for matching us with her!"
Pru aka Kira, now living in Colorado:
Rio, now living in Fort Davis:
"Rio, is doing so good. He absolutely loves toys and we will go outside and play fetch and he does so good! I’ve been trying to teach him tricks, so far he’s learned to sit and lay down, but he’s eager to learn more. He loves to lay in bed with me and get so many cuddles, and most importantly he is in great health!
The photos I’ve attached are just some I’ve attached in the last month or 2, he’s my best friend and we do everything together. I will always be so thankful for grand companions for helping me find Rio."
Mystic aka Feather, now living in Odessa:
Polo aka Scooby Doo, now living in Balmorhea:
Roo aka Jax, now living in New Caney:
"Jax has been great! After about the first 4-6 months every bit of his personality bloomed :) Not just with our household but with other human interactions as well. He’s not so shy and timid anymore, he’s such a sweet and loving boy. He has a little brother now that’s a chihuahua mix and they get along great! 2 peas in a pod."
Basil aka Chloe, now living in Midland:
"Chloe is doing great, fat, sassy and happy. She keeps us laughing with her personality. She watches TV even when the sound isn't on and sees the animals on it and barks at them and growls. She is very loving and sweet. She does like to chew on things but she isn't even a year old just yet. She and our son are buddies. She sleeps in the bed with him and our little dachshund. She likes to talk to us a lot, which is hilarious because it is almost like a child backtalking when you tell them to do something. She is very smart and has learned simple commands. She gets super excited when we get her harness and leash out to go on walks. She almost puts the thing on by herself! She is very healthy and active and very much a part of our family; we have bonded with her and her with us."
Mr. Peepers, now living in Odessa:
"Peepers is doing great! He has absolutely no clue that he is a cat. He follows me everywhere and even sleeps next to me. He wrestles with the dogs and has a thing for bread. If I leave ANY type of bread out on the counter top he will rip right into it and eat. Lol last night I left cornbread in a Ziploc and this morning there were crumbs everywhere. He is just the most amazing addition to our family and we love him to pieces!"
Dotty aka Sally, now living in Midland:
"Thanks for checking in! Things are going well and Sally is growing up. We took her up to Colorado for Thanksgiving and she became a snow dog; she loved warming up next to the fireplace. She is still a jumper, but we love her because she is a super affectionate little princess. She has definitely added value to the family. :)"

We took her to the vet & she’s perfectly healthy. She has a few pesky baby teeth that don’t want to fall out but hopefully they do soon!
She’s really coming into her own at our house. We find she is the starter of the rough play with our German Shepard 🤣
We just absolutely love little Blanca & are so happy to have her be a part of our family! "
Brandon aka Oliver, now living in Midland:
"I am absolutely in love with this little boy. He is so much fun, so happy, and so lovable. He sleeps in his crate at night and is doing fairly well with potty training. He has met some of my family and they all love him. Two family members wanted him really badly. I didn’t know I could love a little puppy so quickly. I have already taken him to a vet and he had another shot. Believe me, he is so loved and I think happy. Thank you for letting me adopt him. "

Klaus aka Murray, now living in New Mexico:
Moogan aka Molly, now living in Valentine:
"She is happy and adjusting well to her new home. She is making friends with our other dog. She was sick for a couple days when we first brought her home, I called our vet and they said she was just probably adjusting to her new surroundings. She recovered fully and is gaining weight and is full of energy. We are going to take her in to our vet next week and to continue her puppy vaccines and for a full check up. I'm enclosing a picture of our spoiled girl."
Annabel aka Miss Molly, now living in Georgetown:
"She now is a little over 20 pounds and seems to grow an inch taller each day...
...Usually, as most puppies will do, she's getting into all sorts of "trouble" at home digging up the yard, pruning the shrubs, bringing rocks into the house, chewing a shoe or two, and other "would-you-believe-it" exploits. But we just laugh, the clean up and repairs will wait."
Yari aka Snow, now living in Arizona:
Templeton aka Shiner, living in Midland:
Then & Now - Honey Anne aka Bella, living in Midland:
King and Dez, both now living in Fort Davis:
"He (Dez) is seriously the BEST puppy ever. No accidents at all and goes potty every time he’s taken out! Sleeps right up next to us on the pillows all night long and loves allll his brothers and sisters. He’s smart and picks up on things very quick; King, his big brother, already taught him to bark at the pig 😂"
Sara aka Omni, now living in Fort Davis:
"Omni loves the many, beautiful dog parks where she can safely run and play with her canine buddies - big and small - young and old - timid and aggressive... they are all friends with Omni.
...I am so thankful to you and the whole Grand Companions staff for introducing me to Omni-Precious; who, no matter how you look at it, really has become Omni-Perfect!"
Piper, now living in Washington state:
"Things we love about Piper:
Her purr. Having a conversation with her is extremely rewarding. She talks, we talk, she talks, we talk, on and on.That she always answers when we talk to her even if she is just walking through.
How opinionated she is about everything! "It time for breakfast. It is time to play. It is time to pet me. It is time to go to bed."
Love the noises while playing with a toy, she talks about it in loud mean sounding grows and howls.
She makes us smile and laugh."
Lena aka Wyo, now living in Dallas:
Beau aka Buck, now living in Alpine:
"He is such a free spirit and brings pleasure to all who get to know him. I did have his DNA tested, and was quite pleased to find he is 100% Labrador, with no trace elements of any other breed in his ancestry. That's only important for casual conversation -- Buck is a champion in every respect in my eyes, and I thank you for making it possible for him to be a part of the family."
