Casey aka Iris

We just had to write to thank our foster family for uniting us with such a great dog.  We have had Iris aka Casey for a week now and she is the best dog!!  We have four young children and she thinks she is our fifth child.  Last night we were getting ready for bed and Casey was not answering us. We looked in the kids\’ bedroom and Casey was curled up next to our 3 year old in his bunk bed sound asleep.  She loves romping around our acres of farm land with the kids, but always come back when called.  We took her to our second home in NH and she was better behaved than the kids during the car ride and loved pouncing around the river!!  Our vet was very impressed at all the paperwork she came with and how healthy she was for a rescue dog.  Our other dog is a 15 year old springer and Casey follows him around like a little girl and her grandpa!!!  Everyone who has met casey comments on what a great looking dog she is they can\’t believe she is not a purebread.  We will send some pix when we get them downloaded.  Thanks again to our foster family and to this great organization.  We are huge fans of matchmaker.  You united us with a great new addition to our family!!

We recently had to put our family Springer Spaniel to sleep.   We found your website during a visit to PETCO.  After a few days of searching, we finally found a picture of a dog everyone thought looked cute.  We emailed the foster family listed and were thrilled to get her immediate reply with more information on Casey.  We had never even heard of a Coonhound, but Joanne the foster mother was very helpful and suggested that we bring our four young children over to meet the dog.  We fell in love immediately!!  After the paperwork was finalized we brought her home.  She has been the perfect dog.  She plays non-stop with our four kids, is gentle and respectful to our 15 yr old dog, and mixes right in with all the commotion that goes along with 4 kids under the age of 6!!  We can’t believe how healthy and well-behaved she is.  Our vet was very impressed with all of the information and paperwork the petmatchmaker provides to the forever families!!  Although we miss our dog that died, our new addition certainly has helped to make the loss not as sad (she keeps us so busy we don’t have time to be sad!!)  We never thought we would find another dog who would fit in with our family so easily, but petmatchmaker made the perfect match.  Casey has gone from a kill shelter in Tennesse to roaming our fields, swimming in the river, boating, and weekend trips to her new second home in New Hampshire – What more could a dog or a family ask for?!

Thank you,
The Bouressa Family!!

    I loved this beautiful little girl when I met her. I e-mailed Pet matchmaker just to see how she was in her new home. She is a sweetie and I am so happy to see that she has a wonderful family and a beautiful home to roam in. Congratulations on finding your perfect match. She is a great dog. I think about her often!
