Arrival Story: We moved to San Antonio, Texas in January of 2009 and were eager to adopt a dog. I saw "Buddy", as he was known, featured as Dog of the Week on the website of a wonderful rescue group in San Antonio called SNIPSA. I was smitten. I saw the group was having an adoption event the next day so we arrived early to be sure to be there when Buddy arrived. It was love at first sight and he sealed the deal when we took him for a walk around the pet store and he peed on a bag of food. We adopted him and he moved in later that day. He's been making us laugh ever since. We renamed him Grizzy (short for George Griswald, an old family name), and he inspired us to get involved with animal rescue efforts in San Antonio.
Rescue Organization (if rescue): SNIPSA (Spay-Neuter-Inject-Protect San Antonio)
