Chester was so happy when he found his best human friend through MNSR! As the "one & only", Chester was showered with love and attention, and his favorite adventures were yearly trips up north to Grand Marais with his dad in the summer, and playtime in the snow in the winter. Chester's dad was so proud of his boy, they were perfect for each other. Chester crossed the Rainbow Bridge on November 5th, 2017 and is very, very missed by his loving dad.


The adorable little white heart on Baru's forehead perfectly showed what a loving and sweet dog he was and all the love he had to give. He found his forever home with a Sheltie friend and a mom who was committed to giving him the best life possible. Baru took on a caretaking role with his grandparents, guiding them away from stairs and alerting another adult if he sensed someone was not feeling well. Baru also enjoyed visiting with his Sheltie cousin, Davey, also adopted from MNSR. Very sadly, Baru passed away on October 31st, 2017, following his dear friend Davey to the Rainbow Bridge.
