Andy loves our UPS delivery man because he brings him treats. He makes special stops to our house just to see Andy, even if we aren't expecting a package! So Andy got his very own UPS costume for Halloween.
Remy shares his birthday with Christmas day! Every year, while opening birthday/Christmas gifts, he gets dressed as Santa! At Halloween, he begs for his Santa costume :-) !
After being diagnosed with arthritis and spondolosis, Buddy was recommended to start swimming for therapy. He was not interested in getting near the water, much less swimming in it. But after finding some protective gear, he started feeling more comfortable in the water. On more than one occasion, he even started to swim across the pond when he noticed a certain lady dog he wanted to meet. This former stray who I rescued from death row is now my 9+ year Buddy and swim partner.
He's a dog of many nationalities! He's got his Irish Tam o'shanter on but with a red bandana, he's the spitting image of the Italian flag. A little Polish is mixed in too- and his snarkiness in the morning tells you he's got the gift of gab, even though he rarely barks!
whiskey is a fun and happy little girl. She is blind in her right eye, and can see shadows close up in her left. But she is blind. She is also very hard of hearing in her right ear! Whiskey is a double merle mini Australian Shepherd, and her parents were both blue merles. Her breeders were going to send her to the pound when a grooming store own caught wind of the situation and offered to fly her to Cincinnati, OH where she could find a loving home. I reached out to the groomer looking for a good dog to add to the chaos we call home, and she told me about her blind little puppy who probably couldn't hear. The next day, our little princess came home and she has been the best addition to our family to date!
Lenny' s a 2 year old Terrier mix with Brindle coloring . He quarantines with lots of play toys to keep him company

I got Winnie in May and she has been the best addition to our family, especially during these times!
My wife has been saying how much she wanted a puppy for years. With work and school and was never feasible to get a new puppy to potty train and get used to us until now, with virtual work and school giving us the flexibility. We found Iroh to join our young family.
Hi my name is Ronan! I am an Aussiedoodle and I am training to be a service dog too, but right now I rather take a nap on my owner/trainer's feet.
Nova is a very fun and sweet German shepherd/husky mix. She's only 7 months old and she is our official quarantine pup! She loves to play, & gives my 2 boys a run for their money! She's our 3rd dog (yes, we are dog lover's indeed!) and a great addition to our family!

Hunter wants to play ball.
We are sitting on our back porch relaxing in the sun and all Hunter wants to do is play ball. He definitely has more energy.
I got Archie on 3/14,which was right before I started working from home. He has been such a joy to have during this difficult time. He makes me laugh and gives so much love
Oh, hi there! I almost zoomed past you! I'm Panda, a three year old coonhound mix. I am a rescue pup from rural Kentucky. Luckily, I made it up to PA after a long drive, and got to meet my family on December 23, 2017. My life and my family are great. I love walking on trails and smelling EVERYTHING, playing with my crazy best friend Cooper, and zooming around in circles in the sand!
Bernie is our rescue beagle. His favorite thing in the world is going for walks, followed closely by snuggling on the couch. He's a little guy who loves his people.

Ranger is the bee knees, he keeps me healthy and happy:). He is a super hero who saves my life daily!
Gryffinn is 9 years old. He's my Service Dog. He works to keep me upright and from walking too fast, which causes me to fall. He lets me know when my balance is getting wonky. He is my treasure. He is a Standard Poodle. I'm a retired USAF Master Sergeant. I see first hand how much Service Dogs are improving the lives of Veterans.
Pasquale is my little buddy. He's so happy to see me when I come home and makes the worse day perfect with just a wag of a tail. He's 7 pounds of love.
I adopted Mia from Guardian Angel Medical Dogs this past May. Mia, formally known as Murphy, has A typical Addisonians disease and unfortunately means she can not be a service dogs. She would have been a wonderful service dog. She's so kind, gentle, attentive and has such a goofy personality which she knows exactly the perfect time to show.
Being with a super service dog has allowed me to enjoy family time at amusement parks, travel and even be social. Nick doesn't need a vote... just an acknowledgement. When you get to hear our stories, it will melt your heart like the chocolate at Hershey park...which is where we just spent an unheard of weekend together, with zero incid we nrs Thank you GAMSD, PNC and all sponsors of Mutt Strut 2020
Blade loves going to work and taking care of her Veteran. She has given me an opportunity to enjoy life after combat. I don't think I can thank Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs and PNC Bank enough for everything they have done.
Maggie Gayle or MaggieG as we often call her is a clown. She is always running around the house and stealing blankets so she can run around the house with it in her mouth. And watch your pockets, MaggieG is an accomplished thief!!! She once stole my cell phone and ran around the yard with it.
Rest assured she is one gentle, sweet clown who we love very much
Sophie is a gentle giant, a 2 1/2 year old Newfoundland. She loves to go on walks, play with her best dog pals, and of course- food!
Found him from family that was at wits end with him. He escaped and destroyed several cages, ate heads off dozens of childrens toys, destroyed bathroom door to get out, tore out wiring for garage door to get out of garage door, "but he's a good dog" ;-) If anyone knows me- I like challenges. Went and saved them and him, enrolled in k-9 off-leash training and we practiced in indoor arena all winter. I found an "escape proof dog cage" and he is THE BEST GERMAN SHEPPARD Ever!! He is all my past dogs combined!
We have two big personalities in our house: The Rebel and the Overachiever. Can you guess who is who?
Bugg never liked water until a year ago and now it's a passion for both of us. We spend hours out on the water at our new lake home and love jumping off the dock together and swimming. As long as he is with me we are both living and loving life. There is nothing we can't do together!
This is Errigal (named after the tallest peak in Ireland). He's our best buddy, a talented sandwich thief, and hunter of rodents and birds across the neighborhood. (Well, he barks. He hasn't really CAUGHT anything yet.) He came to us as a rescue from Colorado and after one seriously long car ride we can't imagine life without him.
Lincoln is a happy bully who is ready and willing to do his part to bring more service pups into the Mutt Strut family to save the lives of veterans!
Piper is the returning Mutt Strut winner of the tiny dog contest 2019. She is 2 1/2 year old Chiwienee, 1/2 chihuahua 1/2 wiener dog. Piper is a rescue. Her first owner was a hoarder with 100 dogs. She has a permanent smile because 1/2 of her lip is missing. she has a couple of toes missing and a little hole in her ear. This has not stopped her from running zoomies around the yard and giving out lots lots of kisses. She still has anxiety issues, but don't we all. God knew she needed our family and we needed her. Piper would love to be the Mutt Strut Peoples Choice award winner for 2020
Fluffy fur baby who loves cheese, chicken, and pizza crust. Otto's smile is infectious!
Penny is the 1st pup to get adopted at the 1st Mutt Strutt in Pittsburgh. I was volunteering that day and had just lost a fur baby 3 months prior. I decided to "just go look" at the pups for adoption. Well, I saw her looking at me as I was walking up to her. The closer I got she started jumping up. When I got to where she was, I asked if I could hold her.....that's all it took. I was in love. She gave me so many kisses I knew she had picked me too. So, my baby girl had a new and forever home with me.
Dash loves his back yard! He lives up to his name when his friends come over and they all get the "zoomies". Dash loves everyone and is rarely without his Lambchop toy.
Taps is not a dog as you can see but he sure thinks he is. He loves to chew shoes, play in water and of course go for walks outside on his leash....even in the rain.
Doji adores his mom, likes to be pet and rubbed and enjoys long walks in the neighborhood.

Spike is what a dog is.. loyal, protective, playful. He had a rough start, meeting other dogs as a pup, 1 attacked him leaving him with a split ear, which is part of his character! He loves to chase trucks and one day a truck got him. Thankfully he survived after surgery and now, safely, behind a fence, he runs circles in our yard chasing them.
He is a cuddler, and loves his treats! He smiles all the time, bringing smiles to our faces. We are lucky he is part of our family.
Samson is a yellow Labrador Retriever. He is a gentle giant....his nickname is velcro because he stays so close??
Casper is solid white but considered a yellow Labrador Retriever. He's super sweet. Loves to play outside and take long naps??
