Meet Andy - Our Adopted Dog From The SPCA

On the 11th of March 2017, we adopted Shilo from the SPCA at a guestimated 6 months old. Shilo being roughly 6 months old when we met him had spent half his life at the SPCA animal shelter. He was labeled a wirehair terrier cross. Some vets think he's mixed with a white shepherd and I'd say his temperament matches. Shilo was renamed Andy and is now an integral part of our family.

This video is to document his growth from adoption to the even more adored 1 year old Andy.

We really respect all the hard work the SPCA, and all other dog rescue non-profits do for beautiful dogs and animals without a home. Welcome to our lives Andy, part 2 in the making...
