My name is Keryn and I am a DR Volunteer.
In this capacity I meet many dogs of all

always some who are so special and really
touch my heart. Sisters Ruby and Tanami are
such a pair.
Ruby and Tanami are a bonded pair looking
for their "furever" home together. These girls,
while quite attached to each other, are very
friendly with other dogs of all sizes. These two
girls are often seen at our Petbarn sites, or

“ SALTY ”
“ From a feisty little beast that has come from a sad
life, he is quickly evolving into a perfect family friend.”
We are so happy to have Salty living with us,
and I'm sure he is thrilled too! We picked Salty
from his photo on the internet, and were warned over
the phone that he was not such a friendly little four-
legged dog. He confirmed this when we met him,
nipping both my partner and myself as we ventured out
with him in the car after a short getting-to-know-you
information session with Monika. Despite his nervous
need to nip, we fell in love and had to take him home.
We changed his name from Skittles to Salty and he has
grown into the perfect dog so far as I am concerned;
friendly, warm, affectionate and absolutely adorable.
Salty loves kayaking, going out on the boat, running He is still nervous around some strangers, shoes, sticks,
