Who We Are
We are a family of dog lovers and coffee drinkers.
My husband and I come from long lines of coffee and canine devotees. I think we were both given coffee in our sippy cups as babies – it was the '70s, things were different. As our lives and family grew, so did our passion for coffee. Hot, cold or day old, we can’t get started without it; the same way we couldn’t start our day without our four-legged companions.
Our family has always adopted from and donated to rescue organizations.
In 2018, our fourteen year old lab-mix passed away. I was in the midst of combing through rescue websites for someone in need of a forever home, when a friend sent me the link to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue. Long story short and a few snow storms later, Denali, our Maremma sheepdog, was on a transport van to us, from Nashville, Tennessee. It was love at first sight. Over the next two years, I continued to follow the Rescue’s endeavors, and we welcomed the adoption of a second: Winston, our Great Pyrenees. From the onset of our journey, it had quickly became apparent that there are thousands upon thousands of working dogs in need of rescue and rehabilitation, and without groups that specialize in these breeds, there would be nowhere for them to go. I continued to follow and support with donations. Still, I wanted to do more.
The Working Dog Coffee Company
Not too long ago, as I stood in the kitchen and passed out treats, I couldn’t help but acknowledge how deeply I love my dogs. And then, pouring a cup of coffee, it dawned on me: The Working Dog Coffee Company.
Work hard. Play often. Love always.
