Meet Team Diederich

For a long time, we have referred to ourselves as Team Diederich. Now that we own and operate a family business, it couldn’t be more appropriate.

Meet Our Pups


He’s our 5-year-old Shih Tzu. He is the C.A.O. of Ruff Life, or Chief Adoption Officer. He takes his job very seriously. There’s nothing he loves more than seeing his friends adopted into loving homes. And treats. He loves treats.


Beatrice is the newest addition to the Ruff Life team. She came to us through adoption from Second City Canine Rescue. She was an owner surrender from Alabama and was in need of help for her serious skin and allergy issues. We adopted her in August of 2016, and she continues to make strides by simply consuming REAL food and building up her immune system. She is a fantastic dog, and we are forever grateful that we are able to give her a forever home.


We adopted her from an abusive home. She is not without issues, but she is perfect to us!! She was our inspiration to open Ruff Life. We made a difference in her life, and she made a huge impact on ours. We hope to help other families adopt as we did!
