Boz is a founding member and the true inspiration for Camp Canine.
Newman joined the family at Camp Canine in 2002. Newman came home with us as a foster dog during treatment for heartworms that November. We spent several nights on the living room floor with him during the early, awful stages of treatment. It was then we decided we needed him as much as he needed us. With the help of a great vet and an equally great cardiologist, Newman is a happy, healthy 9-year-old who loves his treats. His duties include supervising dining hall operations at Camp Canine USA HQ. Where there is food … there is Newman. His favorite phrase: “Who wants a cookie?!”
Little Bit –
Little Bit is everybody’s pal. A 6-year-old peekapoo, Bitteo (one of his many nicknames) is always happy and ready to give doggie kisses. He is a wagging tail with a dog attached. Little Bit loves to play with his brothers and sister but is equally eager for a good stretch and a belly rub. With his big heart and happy-go-lucky spirit, ‘Bit makes sure we provide the best to make our Campers Happy.
Foxy is ever vigilant and constantly reminds us if something is afoot. Just like his namesake, Fox has ears that can hear the most distant sounds. As Security Counselor, Fox monitors the neighborhood, the neighbors’ dogs, the delivery man and always seems to know we are coming home long before we arrive. Fox loves to sing for his supper. It is almost like he is trying to speak to us!
Clyo is all about fun. Clyo is a typical Westie. She loves to explore the backyard -- or the world when we go on walks. She struts her stuff on trips to the pet store and is a bona fide “Go” dog. She enjoys her stuffed toys and Nylabones as much as she enjoys good cuddle time watching TV. When dogs hit the screen, she jumps up to play. Clyo joined the family at Camp Canine USA in the summer of 2006 after escaping, we believe, from a puppy mill, with two other Westie companions. Because of her spunky nature, we suspect she plotted the breakout. Clyo loves to play with her brothers, baiting them to chase her! Did we mention that she’s a typical Westie girl?
Midnight actually adopted us! Middie patrolled our former neighborhood cul-de-sac for 4 years until he met Little Bit. Then he moved in to our basement, then the main house and then into our hearts. His first trip out of Atlanta was to St. Louis and then on to Colorado. At 14 years old, Middie is King of the Camp. He enjoys the simple things -- a warm bed, good food and belly rubs.

Petey reminds us that life is always full of miracles. In a rescue facility for 6 months, Petey came home with us as a foster in late 2006. He slipped right into the Schneider pack, and, within weeks, was adopted into a great forever home. With his gentle, loving spirit and knowing eyes, Petey taught us that sometimes God will wink at you when you least expect it. Thanks Petey, for walking with us on this journey.
When you pose for a picture like this … you definitely have star quality. Starsky was in rescue for 5 months before he came home with us. After this photo session, he ran into the backyard like he had never seen freedom before. Starsky stole our hearts then made us extremely happy foster parents when he found the best forever home possible in nearby Alpharetta. Starsky was best buddies with Clyo. And why not? She is a typical Westie girl! They would play for hours and then fall asleep next to each other for a long winter’s nap. We are so happy for our buddy Starsky who started off 2007 in his new home.
Maddie was in rescue for months, a shy girl who did not have a forever home. She came home with us as a foster in early 2006 and stayed until the fall when she went home with a fabulous family to Braselton! Maddie took advantage of our backyard and would run, run, run, run, and run so much that you can still see the path she carved. She proved to us that it sometimes takes longer to find the best home in the world. She now shares a loving home with her brother, Arlo, a Basset boy, who loves her dearly.
Sky is one of our favorite dogs in Camp Canine’s training program. A rowdy rover, Sky has come a long way to enjoying life as our Counselor-in-Training.
