Adeline came to me from Guide Dogs for the Blind when she was “career changed”. Always calm and focused, she was deemed to be “fearful,” but I think she just wanted to be a pet and join me and Madeleine. She started her 1st agility class just days after I adopted her, which was a huge change in her life.

She is the sweetest dog imaginable, a certified therapy dog, and has earned her Rally Excellent title as well as her AKC Open Agility titles. She loves basking in the sun and sleeping under the covers with me. She just celebrated her 5th birthday with some of our favorite residents at Villa Riviera, including Rollo who is 102 years young, and loves talking about dog agility with me.
