Adoption Monday: Aiden, Hound & Labrador Retriever Mix, Southington, CT

Little Aiden loves to live life in the moment and has enjoyed every precious minute since coming into rescue. He used to think life consisted of a small enclosed area with a hard floor....not any more!!

Aiden is all about learning to be a big boy now and his heart is soaring pretty high these days.

Aiden has quite a unique story. One of the will to live and ultimately survive. At 8 weeks old and just in foster, he contracted parvo. He was the only one who survived out of 3 pups. After two weeks of hospitalization he finally got to come home. Poor Aiden survived but had lost so much weight during the ordeal. Happily after two months of rehab, Aiden is a robust happy healthy boy who will be around for many years to come.

Initially Aiden stayed in his foster mom's big bathroom while she worked. Foster mom was amazed that he never chewed anything up, only played with his toys. If shoes were carelessly left, he dragged them to his bed but NEVER chewed them up.

Aiden has proven himself to be such a responsible puppy, that he now has free run of the house while foster mom is at work.

He is non destructive and potties outside by way of a doggy door. He adores his foster siblings and loves to run around and play with them. He is one of the most affectionate pups foster mom has encountered. He loves to snuggle on the couch and yes he sleeps in the bed cuddled up with foster mom (maybe just a little spoiled but hey he deserves it!) He freely gives kisses and hugs to all. There just isn't a human, dog, or cat that he doesn't love or get along with. This happy go lucky baby loves toys of all kinds to run around or play tug with. He enjoys chewing on hoofs when it's time to settle down.

Aiden is working on basic commands (he would rather play though). His easy going nature and puppy antics always elicit a smile or a good laugh.

Aiden, being the responsible and above average puppy that he is, has already been neutered, is up to date on all vaccinations, and is current on all preventatives. He is ready to join his forever family (and foster mom will cry...a lot...when he leaves).

Best Friends For Life is a privately run, 501 c3 non profit organization, privately funded NO KILL dog rescue. They operate on a strictly volunteer basis out of foster homes.
