A Rottweiler Empire rescue and local pet adopter have a lot to be thankful for.

They were surprised with a $10,000 check from Petco Love and BOBS from Skechers during a recent celebration at Petco.

It’s all thanks to a story submitted by Amber Lounsbury in the Petco Love Stories campaign.

She entered her story of how her adopted dog changed her life in a nationwide contest, and it was chosen as one of 100 Love Stories winners from across the country this year.
