Our Support Team

Greta

American Bulldog

Jim adopted Greta from a loving home, and it didn’t take her very long to become adjusted to her new life. She quickly became Jim’s running partner, co-pilot, and full time office companion. Though no longer with us, she will always remain the honorary leader of our office support team.

Bogey

Pitbull and Boston Terrier mix

Jim adopted Bogey in 2011, giving Greta a sweet and affectionate little brother. Bogey is deaf, but he does not let that stop him from enjoying his life to the fullest. He loves getting pets from his humans, laying out in the sun, and eating lots of treats.

Minnie

American Bulldog

Minnie joined the Hoselton family back in 2016. She may have been the smallest of her litter, but her big personality makes up for what she lacks in size. Minnie likes to show off her skills by giving high fives and standing up on her hind legs in exchange for treats. She has lots of energy and loves to go on runs with her humans.

Don

Pitbull, American Staffordshire Terrier, and American Bully mix

Don was brought into Heartland Animal Shelter after he was found as a stray in the Southside of Chicago. Like Bogey, he is also deaf, so when one of Sharon’s friends told her about him, she knew she had to meet him. With his sweet personality, exuberant energy, and adorable floppy ears, he quickly became a loved addition to the Preservation Services family. Don loves meatballs, going swimming, sunbathing, and playing with his best friend, Bogey.

Georgia

American Bulldog

Georgia is the newest addition to Jim’s family. She came all the way from the state of Georgia, earning her her unique name. At only one years old, she is full of puppy energy and loves having an older brother and sister to play with.
