Our 2017 Pups & Purrs Cover Pets

Roxy and Belle


Our 2017 Cover Pets, Roxy and her daughter, Bella, were both adopted from Old Yeller Ranch Rescue by two amazing families. Bella was 12 weeks old when Bill and Jacque Hillard brought her home, and it was the perfect match, Jacque says. "She's really smart. And she's loving and gentle when she needs to be, and protective when that calls." The couple often travels in their RV and say that Bella is the perfect little camper. "She's a goofball at night, and does this tail tuck and spins donuts in the living room. She brings us joy every day!"

Roxy was adopted by Mary Koenig and her daughter, Mallory. She was just over two and had just had a litter of puppies (her second litter). "It was time for her to be a puppy herself again," says Mary. "We needed a dog to get along with our very old chihuahua, Gromit, and she really did. She is so chill and seems to get along swimmingly with dogs and people alike. She is such a cuddler and a love." Mary adds," We don't know what happened to her lip, but it hasn't kept her from showing what a beauty she is. Her joy and energy when she goes to the beach are infectious. She can swim and fetch the stick for hours, and when she swims, her tail sticks up in the water and it's usually wagging."
