McCarthy joined the Cruz-Vind family in June 2019. We first saw McCarthy’s photo at the Oakland A’s Bark at the Park and FELL IN LOVE. We rushed to ARF the following day. It was our first time visiting ARF and when we got to the glass door for the room that McCarthy was in, he ran from his bed and put his paws on the glass… we knew it was the perfect fit!

Since the adoption – McCarthy is king of the household. McCarthy absolutely loves his grandPAW and spending time with each of us. McCarthy enjoys sunbathing, playing fetch, and cheering on his Oakland A’s and SF 49ers whenever they have a game. These four paws are always ready for an adventure and his two mama’s love each and every moment with him. Thank you, ARF for the addition to our family!
