We adopted Steve 4 years ago today from the Skagit Humane Society after a long search.  He had been picked up as a stray in Jurupa Valley, California on 11/22/17. It is there where he was named.  He was later transferred to our local rescue where we found him.  He came off as hyper when you met him, and I think that turned people off to him.  But we were enamored, and Rocky seemed to like him as well.  So he came home with us.  Here are photos from the last 4 years with him in our lives.

He has really changed over this time.  He is much more friendly, letting us pet him now.  He will come in the house and jump in the truck.  Ryeleigh has really helped open him up. He remains a great guard dog, his true passion.  We think he is 7 years old now.  I hope we have many more years with him.
