INTRODUCE YOURSELF & YOUR BEST FRIEND. TELL US YOUR PUP'S NAME AND BREED, and INCLUDE A PICTURE

Evan is a Kooikerhondje or Dutch Decoy Dog. They are rare in the United States. We compete in agility and are working towards becoming a certified therapy team. In March 2015, Camille, a Miniature American Shepherd joined Evan and I.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW? HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT OUR GROUP?

Live in Dogtown in St. Louis City. Found your group via MeetUp search

TELL US ABOUT YOUR DOG, HOW DID YOU TWO FIND EACH OTHER? OR YOUR FAVORITE STORY ABOUT YOUR PUP.

I was searching for a dog after my Golden Retriever died. I learned about the Kooikerhondje and thought it'd be a great fit but wasn't sure I'd be able to get one as they're rare and my work schedule isn't conducive to a puppy. I contacted several breeders asking if they had any adult dogs they'd like to move out of their breeding programs into a companion/agility home. Turns out a breeder in Wisconsin was looking for such a home. And, that's how Evan and I found each other. Camille and I found each other on Facebook. I knew I wanted to get a puppy in 2015 and was planning for later in the year, but she found me in February and now she's here.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU TAKE YOUR DOG ON A LONG WALK, MORE THAN JUST AROUND THE BLOCK?

Several times a week. Evan is a sprinter, Camille is a marathoner.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PARKS FOR HIKING?

Forest Park because it's close to the house and the Boat House is dog friendly. Queeny Park because there are lots of trails.
