Customer of the Month: Meet Rock Star Bear

Meet Bear! Every month we’ll be highlighting 2-3 customers as a thank you to all our wonderful customers – we appreciate all of you. Thank you, Carol, for sharing a little about Bear! “Ten years ago, he was one of 9 black lab puppies. He was the one with the big paws and people said he is going to be as big as a bear  so that’s how he got his name”.Bear got his first collar when he was 6 weeks old specially fitted by Nancy at Salty’s and now he’s 10 years old!

Oregon Humane Society Diamond Collar Hero dog winner this past Feb 2017
