Dear Pet MatchMaker,

I am so happy to let you know Swazey -a beautiful and happy Gordon Setter/Lab mix has joined our family in Lexington,MA. Our old and cancer sick dog for 10 years passed over the Rainbow Bridge early November. The house and family all missed having a dog and so began a search looking for a nice new dog.As we only were interested in giving a deserving older dog a home (as we did in the past )we found Petmatchmaker. I saw the pictures and read the story of Swazey-and knew he was the one! Emailed his Foster mom, and got to know a few more good details about him. We met and decided on the spot to adopt him -and it is a joy having him .We take 2 daily long walks in the neighborhood and woods ,and yesterday my husband and kids built a 150 by 150 by 150 feet enclosed “dog off the leash run” in front of our living room window. I am teaching him to heel and sit as well as greeting people nicely-and he is a fast learner! My 2 cats and birds all get along -the kitties and us get lots of wet dog kisses!

Thank you so much, Kirsten



Freya (formerly Frey) was an unexpected addition to our family. We already had 2 cats and one dog (a 7 year old Sheltie) and weren’t sure we had the time or energy for a puppy… but that didn’t stop us from talking about getting one!

We first saw and fell in love with Freya at the Pet Rocks Festival in Worcestor. She was small, tired and sweet. After playing with her and taking her for a walk my 4 year old son asked if we could take her home. She was adorable, how could i say no? so we made all the arrangements to make her a part of our family.

She is such a joy. She’s fun, energetic and attentive. She’s just as happy chasing balls in the yard as she is curled up next to us watching tv. i’ve never seen a dog capture so many people’s hearts so quickly as she has… we’re so happy to have her with us.

Thank you Pet Matchmaker for saving her and bringing our little Freya-lou to us!
