Dog Owners of the Year

If you visit the Putchios’ home, you will be greeted by not one, not two, but seven furry faces framed by their large living room window. These dogs are part of the Putchio family, and they share the warmth of the house on cold days. The Putchios’ dogs (four of which were adopted from the Dog Lovers’ League’s Shelter) are included in family walks around the Bruce City Park. Marissa, the Putchios’ daughter, helps with all the furbabies. Thank you, Teresa and Kevin, for caring for your dogs so well and for being our 2017 Dog Owners of the Year. Submitted by Rose Wells
