My husband and I were looking for a dog after my doctor told me I needed to be more active. We walked into the SF SPCA not knowing what type of dog would be best for us, especially since we have four cats and had never had a dog. We fell in love with Bamse the moment we laid eyes on him; not only is he a beautiful dog, but he had beautiful, kind eyes that drew us to him. The SF SPCA staff was a little hesitant to let us adopt him since he had just come in, and they didn't know much about him or how he would behave with cats. However, we took the plunge, and I'm so glad we did. Bamse is the sweetest, most gentle, well-behaved dog ever. He gets along with our cats, he loves taking walks on the beach with us, and he has changed our lives for the better. My blood sugar is down, and we've become more active as a family. We can't imagine our lives without him. Thank you, SF SPCA for allowing us to bring Bamse into our family!
