    Red faceHello from soon to be new lab mom!

    Hi everyone!
    A week ago I applied to adopt a lab puppy from a rescue, thinking it would be a while before we got our pup, but I will be bringing our new family member home next Saturday! This will be my first dog so I am excited and a bit overwhelmed...just worried about having everything I need!
    We are getting a black male lab mix pup, and he will be 9 weeks old. He and his mom and 9 siblings were rescued at 1 day old from a high kill shelter, on the day their time was up. Very grateful there are people out there who rescue these cuties!
    I am sure I will have a million questions....so glad to have found you all. Can't wait till I have pictures to post .
    I also have 3 human babies, an almost 11 year old daughter and boy girl twins who are 5. We are all very excited to get our first puppy home!

    Welcome! How exciting for all of you! I can not wait to see pictures. Do you have any idea what he is mixed with?

    Hi! I don't know what the dad was, mom is also a black mix I believe. She was dumped at a high kill shelter very pregnant in March, she and her 10 pups were rescued when they were a day old, and scheduled to be put down. That's about all I know now...but they look very labby (that's a word right? Lol). Well 9 of them do, all yellow or black. One white and black spotted pup in the mix too.
    I'm just so excited to get him home....he's coming to New England from Texas, thanks to a lot of loving volunteers that are transporting the puppies...all have forever homes to go to that are eagerly awaiting next Saturday!

    Lol, yes, labby is a word I use! I have always had a Lab in my life but I also have a Lab/Border Collie mix, she is 6. She is an awesome dog, with a few quirks that are not her fault, I love her so much. I took her and her entire litter when I found out the owner of the mom was going to take them to the same kind of shelter at 5 weeks. Kept everyone together, found all but Emma forever homes and we still see her brothers and sisters. A puppy is so much fun, my youngest will be 2 in July and I can't wait to get another puppy next year!
