In 2016, after moving to Santa Monica, CA I wanted to adopt a dog to go on adventures with me. When my parents visited me, we went to the West LA Animal Shelter to find a dog. While I went with the intention of adopting a pit bull, a small dog jumped on my lap, licked my face, and I instantly fell in love. Since then, Ajax and I have explored all over California, Utah, Maine, and Colorado. He’s been my adventure buddy since I got him, and I couldn’t have found a better partner.
