Big Red success story page

Big Red became well-known at CHS…not for the best reasons. He had a mean left hook when you moved his bowls for cleaning…

Axel didn’t just arrive with puppy energy and a love for people. He also came with a mystery that took a whole team to solve.

Onyx couldn’t wag. His tail just flopped behind him like extra baggage he didn’t need or want.

Aries talked a lot at CHS, and he’s still not done. He wants to share his story with you.
