About The Gang:
Teah is the oldest animal in the house, being almost 13. She is a now-retired therapy dog who served for many years. She has been living with Brianna for almost 12 years, and was rescued from a wonderful women who, while in love with Teah, was unable to care for her. Teah is a happy-go-lucky dog who has the reputation of being an airhead. Don’t let the fact that she’s a senior fool you, she can still run with the best of them.
Uma is both the newest and youngest animal to enter the family. But you would never know it, at 4, Uma has seen it all and done it all. Nothing surprises her and nothing worries her. She’s a very serious dog with a strong personality, which contrasts nicely with Teah’s ADD like attitude.
Uma was purchased from a very well known trainer/breeder out of the south.
