Considered the “Royal Dog of Madagascar,” Rambo cavorts with Garlands “commoners” who are more than happy to share treats and belly rubs on his daily walks.
Our beloved pets are with us through thick and thin, adding joy and laughter — and so many other benefits — to our lives and our homes.
The same is true at The Garlands, where small pets that meet the community’s guidelines are welcome to live with their Garlands people in their private homes.
“Animals enrich our lives by promoting unconditional love,” says Lynn Adams, director of lifestyles. “Birds, kitties, fish, and small dogs are an important part of members’ lives and The Garlands culture.”
Some canine companions, like Rambo, an outgoing Coton de Tulear whose tough-guy name belies his happy-go-lucky, gentle personality, reach near-celebrity status at The Garlands.
“Everyone wants to know about Rambo,” says his person, Garlands member Lee Myalls, who has lived at The Garlands with her husband, Walter, and their fluffy pooch since 2019. “Rambo is such a joy! Neighbors and staff always stop to pet him, give him treats, and ask about him.”
Rambo and other Garlands furry friends paraded throughout The Garlands for a pet “pawty” complete with chef-prepared tasty pup-cup treats!
