Mike is now known as "Stoic"

 Mike in the shelter

"Mike" was turned into a shelter when he wasnt working out as a working dog.
He sat in the shelter for more than two months before his perfect home was found.

A little over a week ago the shelter dog named Mike turned into the new family dog named Stoic.
He is pictured above, where he was handed over to his new mom on the transport.
Stoic traveled about 800 miles from the shelter in Montana to his new home in British Columbia.
It was no small feat getting him there since he had to cross more than one snowy mountain pass
in questionable weather conditions.
Luckily for him, though, he had the good fortune to be in the very capable hands of
veteran transport drivers that were well acquainted with these roads and he made it safe and sound to his new family.

A special thanks to everyone involved in making this happen. 
Hether, for being a dedicated Adoption Coordinator and working so hard to match him up with his new family
Wendy, for being patient and waiting for the right dog to find you
Juliana, for never saying no, regardless of how tough the transport may be 
Susie at the shelter for holding on to Mike till his perfect home came about
and to all of the wonderful transport drivers that helped Mike become "Stoic"  and make it safely home
Dan and Sandi

Here he gets a farewell hug from Lynne, one of his wonderful transport drivers.
