I rescued Vader in 2008 after his being at the shelter for a little less than a year. Our bookstore was doing a benefit there for the second time and I heard the volunteers talking about a dog they had named Vader. Being a HUGE Star Wars junkie, I just had to meet him. I awaited the staff to wrangle him into the kennel, the office manager asked "So, you're here to see Vader?" I pointed to the back of my Philadelphia Eagles jersey, which was customized VADER 77, and my limited-edition Vader watch, and she laughed and said she'd start right on the paperwork. Our meeting was the will of the Force. I looked at all the other dogs in the kennel area, and of course wanted to take them ALL home, but as soon as I got to Vader, I knew he was coming home with me. I looked at him, and he looked at me with very inquisitive, intelligent eyes, and I knew right there I was going to adopt him. My wife and I adopted him the next day and brought him home the next week and he's been my best friend and constant companion ever since. Even though pit bull and Shepard breeds get a bad rap, he's as sweet and loving as they come, and also very strong and extremely intelligent. He's a total character; there's nobody who can make me laugh like he can.
