We are incredibly grateful for A Forever Home matching us with Poe. We adopted him in January of 2012 when he was a puppy. When his foster handed him to us on the day we were taking him home, she said “this puppy does not like not being left alone.” From that day on, none of us were ever “alone” again because of the unconditional love we shared.
Poe was a very independent dog but was near us always. When our children were babies, Poe was the first one to run to their side when they cried. He even kept us company at all hours of the night when our babies were awake. Poe was so loyal and loving. He was also incredibly smart and excelled in all aspects of training. He especially liked to do cool tricks. Our two year old even enjoyed doing tricks with him. Poe loved going on walks, going to the beach, and napping on his favorite window seat.
He passed away at the age of 10 on July 11, 2022 after a tough battle with prostate cancer that spread to his lungs and spine. We miss him terribly but will always carry him with us in our hearts.
