Last weekend I had the most incredible opportunity to visit Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah.   I have a lot more to write about, but I wanted to introduce to one of the awesome dogs we met there who is looking for a new home. Caspian is a senior dog who is absolutely perfect in every way.

During my volunteer experience, I was fortunate to meet Caspian when it was time for me to wash the dishes.  Caspian is the “kitchen dog” and he couldn’t be sweeter.   Although he may be losing his hearing, every time we said “Hi Caspian,” he wiggled his little nub tail and butt furiously.  A teenager and her mom took Caspian for a short walk, and he has great leash manners.  

If you’re interested in adopting Caspian, please fill out an adoption application.  If you can’t adopt him, I hope you’ll share him!

Awe! Caspian 🙂

I know several folks who have gone to Best Friends for the volunteer experience. I can’t wait to read more about your time there. I love that video, btw! 🙂

    Beth says:

    It is so incredibly difficult to even process my trip, it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I’m glad you enjoyed the video, it is a lot longer than what I usually share, but I just love it.

Robin says:

Caspian is so cute! He looks like a stuffed animal. Best Friends seems like such an awesome sanctuary. I would love to visit one day!

    Beth says:

    He is really so incredibly sweet and you would love visiting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary!

Caspian sounds like a nice dog. I hope he gets a forever home really soon. Senior companions are really great!

A few of our cat blogging friends also went to Best Friends and they’ve shared their photos and story. Caspian looks like an adorable dog who needs a forever home.

Kia says:

Aw Caspain is too cute and sounds like the sweetest dog! I hope he gets adopted soon!

I absolutely loved the video! Two million acres – incredible! And their human-canine bond brings tears to my eyes! So beautiful. He is so right – caring for a dog makes each of us a better person. Thank you for sharing this! And Caspian is adorable!

    Beth says:

    I am glad that you enjoyed the video, it really spoke to me!

Maggie says:

Thank you so, so much for sharing my post. You did an incredible job capturing the sanctuary in your photos. So lovely!

Rachel says:

Best Friends is such a wonderful place. I was able to go last year and volunteered with both the cats and the dogs. I can’t wait to go back! Caspian sounds like a wonderful dog.

    Beth says:

    I’m looking forward to going back as well.

I’d love to talk to you more about your experience volunteering there as it’s seriously on my list – are you an ambassador for Best Friends or was this something you scheduled?

    Beth says:

    I am an ambassador for Best Friends. I’d love to talk to you about it. I still have a few posts to write, it is hard because I know I can’t do it justice.

Nichole says:

I’m still a little jealous! It’s on my bucket list!!

Caspian looks very sweet. I hope he finds his perfect home soon!

He is so so cute and pray he finds a home too

Caspian is absolutely precious. I hope he finds the perfect forever home. I am sure the trip was incredible.

He really has such a sweet and gentle face! Just love him. I also love adopting seniors or slightly older dogs – and hope someone will adopt sweet Caspian!

Caspian looks like an adorable little stuffed animal. Such a sweet face. I hope he gets an amazing fur-ever home soon!

Caspian is so handsome hope he finds his forever home very soon!

Caspian definitely doesn’t look like a senior! He looks like a puppy still! What a handsome boy.

Aww, so cute!
