A Clothing Business That Supports Dog Rescues
Preston’s Paw Prints is a local business that offers custom apparel for dogs and their humans to customers nationwide. Our team is led by Kalah Mueller — an animal lover, registered nurse, and proud “fur momma.” Inspired by the memory of her dog Preston, we donate 10% of our proceeds to local animal shelters.

Preston was originally found by Ruff Love Rescue, along with two other puppies. He was blind, thin, and drinking too much water. Eventually, the rescue staff discovered that Preston had diabetes insipidus, a condition that made him unable to metabolize water. Preston first lived with the founder of Ruff Love. Afterward, he stayed at a foster home. Then one magical day, he met Kalah.
Kalah adopted Preston from Ruff Love in September 2015. He was a mischief-maker, toy destroyer, lover boy, and bed hog. Most importantly, Preston was Kalah’s heart and soul.
Kalah took pride in her canine companion’s ability to find his way around her home despite the fact that he was blind. She took care of Preston, giving him hormone injections twice daily. In turn, Preston gave Kalah unconditional love. Sadly, Preston passed away in November 2016 due to a tragic incident. He was exploring the neighborhood with his dog walker when another dog, who was off leash, ran toward them, barking viciously.
Preston got scared and started to defend his companion and himself. The fight between the dogs escalated, with Preston and the other dog biting each other. The owner of the other dog shot and killed Preston. Kalah was in the middle of her shift when the news that her beloved dog had passed away reached her. Her biggest regret was that she was not able to spend Preston’s last moments with him. However, she is thankful that for 14 months, Preston was able to experience the love and attention some dogs will never get.

Kieran is a mixed breed “foster fail” who is still in his puppy phase. Kalah adopted him in July 2018, and he has been an indispensable part of the team since then.
Kieran was born blind, but that doesn’t stop him from following Lucas around and doing all the things he wants to do. He loves to cuddle and snuggle—he thinks his kitty sisters are playmates, but they do not concur.
Half Feline, Half Canine
Just like her doggy siblings, Sadie loved to chase her tail. She would beg for attention by standing on her hind legs and pawing at the air. Sadie was adopted in 2006. Sadly, Sadie passed away in January 2019.
