Meet Bandit

Hello! My name is Bandit Pategwin. I am a rescue dog living in beautiful Salem, Oregon. I spend my days lounging in my rocking chair, soaking up the sun, keeping a look out for neighborhood shenanigans, going on adventures and getting cuddles from my parents.

But life wasn’t always this easy.

I spent my first two years in shelters in California, dreaming of being adopted. Because many people don’t understand dogs who look like me, I was placed on the top of a list of dogs who would be put to sleep.

Thankfully, a rescue group in Oregon found me and brought me here, where I was fostered and soon met my humans, Natalie and Josh! They showed me that a loving home includes lots of food, fun, playtime and snuggles.

I want kids to know dogs like me are caring pups just looking for happy homes. That’s why we’ve decided to share my story in our new children’s book “Bandito the Puppito Dreams of a Home.”

This book not only tells the story of how I was adopted, but it helps other pets in need by donating ALL proceeds to animal rescues and charities.

The book will be available soon, but why wait!? Check out our contribution page, where you can help offset production costs so animals in need get help sooner. You can also email us to get on the pre-order list!

Thanks for reading and sharing your love of rescue animals with me and the world!
