(PRESS RELEASE) DENVER, CO — Outward Hound, a portfolio company of Prospect Hill Growth Partners, has acquired Best Friends by Sheri in a deal.

Best Friends by Sheri was founded by Sherry Samani in 2009. Originally focused on producing homeware textiles, Samani noticed her pomeranian Kudo enjoyed sleeping on some of her fabric swatches. Realizing that there was a gap in the market for high-quality, fashionable pet beds, Samani went to work and Best Friends by Sheri was born. Over 10 years later, Best Friends by Sheri’s product portfolio includes some of the bestselling pet beds in the industry.
