In honor of National Love Your Pet Day, today’s Love in the BOI feature is dedicated to our special furrrbabies. Meet Jean Slade (IG: wingbeanjean ) & Rex Slade (IG: rexxontheroad )
How Did You Meet?
We met, 3 years ago, from the Idaho Small Dog & Chihuahua Rescue, a local organization that helps place smaller dogs with forever homes in Boise.
Describe Your First Meeting (puppy date?)
I saw an ad on Facebook that the organization had recently acquired several pups from a hoarder situation and they needed help. I went to go donate some items and Rex instantly started playing with me (and my other dog). The organizer looked at me and said “This is your dog, I just have this feeling, and you have to adopt him”. I was not in the market for a new dog but I left that day with Rex and it was the best decision I ever made.
