Canada goes home with the gold, USA comes back with Pups! http://t.co/tm6UlnpujZ
Greg and Laina currently reside in San Antonio Texas where Laina works as a Pharmacist and Greg is a professional hockey player for the San Antonio Rampage, the AHL affiliate for the Florida Panthers. In the spring of 2012 one of Greg’s teammates came across six stray puppies wandering the streets near the rink. The pups were taken in, bathed, deflead, deticked and needed to be fostered for a month before being spayed/neutered and ready for adoption. During this time Greg and Laina discussed the possibility of adopting Oakley and whether or not bringing a dog into their busy lifestyle at this time was right. They fostered Oakley for just a week before deciding to make him a permanent member of their family. Today Oakley and his sister are best friends! Oakley is a playful, happy puppy that has so much love for his family. He is very mild tempered, very well behaved, and a perfect big brother.
How important was it to you to adopt vs. getting a dog from a breeder?
We owe a lot to Kate and Tyson Strachan for teaching us about rescuing and how great the dogs truly are. We really didn’t have a feeling – or even know too much about rescue vs. breeder – before we got Oakley, but after being educated on the overpopulation of shelters, the number of stray dogs, and the number of dogs that just need a good home – we knew rescuing was the way to go. Thanks to Kate and Tyson Oakley found his way into our lives, and it is so great knowing we have changed his life for the better!
