Freedom

My eleven year old Black Lab-Chow mix spent the entire first year ofher life locked up in metal dog crate. The girl, who had her mother and father, got homes for all of the puppies except for one. This girl was a dog collector of sorts, who obviously thought she was doing a good deed every time she took in a stray. Unfortunately, she didn't have the time,adequate space, or the know how needed to be responsible for dogs. The first time I ever saw my Lab-Chow mix was in a Petsmart Store. I had gone there to buy dog food and a local rescue organization was conducting a pet Adoption there in the store. I've always had two dogs at the same time. My seventeen year old Lhasa Apso, who was like my own child, had died eight months before and Morna, my Shepard mix, and I felt it was time to think about getting another dog to be a companion to us both. I agreed to take the Lab-Chow mix as a Foster Dog, but when I was made aware of the conditions she had lived in for the entirety of her life, I decided to adopt her. She was exactly a year old when she came to live with us. Her owner brought her to my home, along with her metal crate. The girl had named her Spunky which, in my opinion, didn't fit this frightend and totally untrained dog at all.She had no idea what a bowl was or how to eat from one and obviously, no attempt had ever been made to house train this dog. For her entire life, up until that time, she had to eat dry dog food, thrown onto the floor of her crate, and she went to bathroom on the same crate floor from which she ate. I learned very quickly she didn't like being in that crate, but because she had always been locked up, she was afraid of open spaces. Going into our privacy fenced in wooded back yard was scary for her and she wanted me near her. The metal crate went back to the girl who had her from birth, and Spunky gota new name, which is Freedom. It didn't take but a few days to teach her to eat from her bowl. To completely house break Freedom took me almost a year. When she first came to us, the fur around the back of her legs was bare from sitting in that crate in her own urine. She's had many baths and been brushed much since then and her coat is healthy and beautiful now. Freedom is the most loyal and protective dog I've ever had. She is not usually aggressive but she doesn't like ill behaved little children who jump and run in her house. Fortunately, her patience with a misbehaving child,in our own home, has been put to the test only once. Freedom didn't break his skin, but she nipped the child and taught him that he should be quiet and settle down and leave her alone. Several years ago, I had emergency surgery and friends of mine came to take the dogs out and to feed them. When one friend, who was caring for them attempted to enter my bedroom, Freedom prevented her from entering the room. Freedom sleeps in the hallway, just outside of my bedroom door. She use to sleep in bed with me, but the bed I have now is too high for her to jump onto. When my daughter visits overnight, Freedom alerts me if she gets up in the night. During theday, her favorite place to hang out is the futon in our den, which is known as Freedom's Futon. Freedom's favorite things are squeaky toys, raw hide bones, and tummy rubs. She enjoys a walk around the block, but is always anxious to return home. When she goes out into the backyard after dark, even though I turn on the floodlights, Freedom still wants me with her, at least I need to stand on the porch, where she can see me. Two and a half years ago,her sister Morna got very sick and died. Freedom saw her, so she knew Morna had died. Freedom grieved for Morna and she was very depressed. I have since adopted Maggie, a Lhasa Apso-Terrier mix, and she and Freedom love each other and have become the best of friends. Freedom is eleven years old now, and except for a slowing thyroid, for which she's being treated, she seems healthy. I feed her Nutro Ultro Holistic Senior Dry Dog Food, sprinkled with uncooked Old Fashioned Oat Meal and on that I pour in just a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil. She loves me and I'm convinced she would protect me with her life. I love Freedom too. With those beautiful brown staring eyes, she looks you right into the eye and she shows you her love. I would recommend a Lab-Chow for an adult household, especially a settled older single adult, who is home most of the time and who does not travel, a person who has experience and patience with a variety of dogs and who is able to be as loyal to this dogas she will be to you.

Snorkie

My Snorkie named Toby Keith is a nine month old puppy who weighs 15 pounds,he doesn't shed, has no health problems as of yet, has a cute personality but is very protective of my mom and I. He has big floppy ears, medium size feet, he's multi color black, tan, and silver. He's very smart and easy to train. He has a stump tail, he loves to cuddle, his nose is long like the schnauzers, but round like a Yorkie and not square like a schnauzers. He has strong healthy teeth and a healthy bite. He has a lot of energy, and he loves the hot weather, and he loves to go in the car.

Waylon

We resuced our Boglen Terrier from the Boston Terrier Rescue in Birmingham, AL. We couldn't figure out exactly what breed he was until we did a lot of research. There is not a doubt in my mind that this preciousbaby is a Boglen Terrier. His characteristics meet every criteria listed for this breed. He is the sweetest baby and loves to lick you to show you how much he loves you. He and our older Boston get along fantastic. It was the best decision we made to rescue one. The most amazing thing Waylon does run frisbees down that we throw to him in the back yard. He puts some Border Collies to shame :)I would recommend a Boglen Terrier to anyone looking to add a new pet to the family.

Scout

We bought a puppy 10 days ago, for my 18th birthday and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. We got our little puppy when he was 7 weeks old. He had been taken from the litter early and in those 7 weeks of his life, he had been to three homes, our's is the fourth and last home he will be in. This puppy left mum at 6 weeks and was given to a lady as a gift from her fiance, the lady's whippet took exception to the new pup and attacked him. Another lady took the dog, with no intention of keeping it, but just to get it out of a bad situation, we saw her ad and went to see him, and that's how we fell in love. We looked online for information on labs x border collie and found an article on Boradors and the description was an uncanny resemblance to our little pup scout. The long legs, floppy ears, black fur, the white blaze on his chest... everything. The day we brought him home he used the toilet outside and has continued to do so, whining at the door when he needs to go. He is a chewer so I highly recommend supplying him with lots of toys or else your slippers will get a seeing to. He is a very friendly dog and loves to meet new people, and will wear himself out trying to get strokes from all the guests. He has huge bursts of energy then will sleep for an hour and do it again. He can get stroppy when he is tired or over excited so the best thing to do is ignore him and wait for him to calm down, these dogs crave attention and taking it away is a punishment for them. Our puppy is not old enough to go for walks but these dogs need mental stimulation as well as just a walk. Try a game of hide and seek. As with all cross breeds, you don't know what you will get, you could get the worst of both breeds. We were fortunate. Always do research and don't be conned into paying £100s of pounds for a mix breed, because at the end of the day, they are not a pedigree so you have no idea what the cute puppy will grow into. Good luck.

Small dog big heart.

We are a family of four and for a while my boys started to get bored at home. They started asking if I could get them a dog. After many breeds that we saw we just couldn't convince ourselves. But after we saw Atlas as we have named him. It has been the best decision we took. We got him when he was a three months old. He has brought a good vibe to the house he's very playfull and loves to be around us. We love him very much and hope Godleaves him with us for a very long long time.
