This dog along with another was apparently dumped near our daughter’s house.
Our daughter put their pictures on next door a neighborhood site but no one came forward. The male was a mixed breed and the female was a lab.
She loves to swim and our daughter has a pond. This dog swims underwater and is under for like 15 seconds and you can not see her at all and then she pops back up again and starts dog paddling.
After a couple of days, she was able to catch the female and bring her to our house since we have a fenced-in back yard.
I thought that Andrew named her Shadow but out daughter said no that was his chicken. I guess I called her Shadow lol.
Daisy was so excited to have a friend to play fetch with now she is quite sad because Shadow left last night.
We figure this lab is about 1 – 1 1/2 years old and she appears to be in good health. She has been trained she does not bark but most hunting dogs do not bark, she sits, stays, lays down and plays fetch bringing a ball, stick, or even a log she drops them at your feet.
Daisy had an old collar that fit her perfectly.
I can not stress enough to everyone with pets to get them a tag with their name and your phone number on it that attaches to their collars. That way if your pet is lost you can be reunited.
As far as people dumping animals it makes me sick because animals depend on us for food, water, and shelter. When you dump them they have to survive on their own or by the kindness of strangers.
This dog stole our daughter’s heart and then she stole mine. We both wanted to keep her. The only thing stopping me from keeping her was she would not stay out of the koi pond.
Our oldest daughter was coming into town and had actually found her a home. She was going to be taking her back to Dallas. That was until she met her and fell in love with her just like we did so now Shadow will be living with her.
Of course, I had to do a photo session.
One look in a dog’s eyes and you can see through to its soul and connect with it.
Shadow’s spirit and personality are great and when everyone is falling in love with the same dog you know that dog has something special to offer.
