Default Our New Addition

My better half and i have had Labs for 38 years. Over that time we whelped three litters and had five in the house at one time. After our last one passed we decided to take a break. It's been 5 years since we had a dog and we have been talking about it for the last year. I figured that if we were patient an opportunity would knock. Well 2 weeks ago opportunity knocked. A manager at the Publix where our daughter works said he had a dog that he wanted to find a good home for. Well as they say I was over ruled by the female vote.
So 2 weeks ago jade, a 2 and 1/2 year old black female Lab came home to us. We were told that she was crate trained. Not true, they used the crate for punishment and that is a huge NO NO. The previous owner also said she was good off lead and he used a shock collar. When he picked up the shock collar this poor dog dropped to her belly on the floor. Needless to say the collar did not come home with us. Not patting myself on the back but after just two days with us she was a totally different dog. She is probably the most loving and a big cuddle bug. I honestly believe she thinks she died and went to heaven. She is coming along really well and in time she is going to be a great addition to the family.

Can't wait to meet her Tom. Kudos to you and your bride for giving her a loving home. There is something special about a rescue pup.

It’s a sign of optimism to get a new pup. You have much to look forward to.

Most of the problems with dogs are related to the people who own/handle them. You have proven that with the proper treatment most dog problems can be solved. Congrats to you for saving her. Enjoy!

Good looking girl. You may have been out voted but, I don't think you would have left that house without her.
