    both dogs are bought from breeders...one a byb and one a reputable breeder.

    I do rescue...so I have plenty of them in and out of my house.

    None of the above. All mine were bred by me.

    Both of ours were rescues. Molly from the local shelter where she was on her last day and Jake from a vet about 100 miles south of us who had picked him up running down the interstate.

    Kody was bought from a reputable breeder. Our next will be a rescue. After seeing how many Labs are in need of rescue, I doubt I will buy a puppy again.

    Duke was sort of rescued as his original family had to give him up when he was seven months old because their older Lab would not accept him and became very aggressive toward him.
    Freckles was left at the back door of a Vets office where the staff fell in love with him and convinced their Doctor to not send him to a shelter. They kept him over three months trying to find a home for him. Sent him out twice and within a week he was returned because it was claimed he was a biter. Actually it was just a case of severe insecurity that took us about two years to overcome. He still has a few weird quirks but all I can say he is just one very unique dog.
    Duke, because of the aggression toward him as a pup, was extremely submissive when we got him. That too took a lot of training and work to even get him to hold his head up when walking.
    Fast forward five years, two really great dogs that complete our family.

    Both Thunder and Simba were "rescued" by me as their current families were going to get rid of them. I either took them or they were heading to the Humane Society.

    It's not the destination, it's the journey!

    Billie was rescued through a prison dog program. My next Lab will be the same. I love those programs. Rescues complete with basic obedience training, crate trained, housebroken, spayed/neutered, vaccinated...and a journal of their daily lives from intake to adoption.

    Perfect for what I need and want in a dog.

    Oakley along with her brothers and sisters were taken into rescue after their mother was killed in an accident. The home where they were wasn't able to handle the pups after the accident. They were only 2 weeks old when it happened. I was the first one to take a puppy home, Oakley was 6.5 weeks.
    I can't believe it has been a year since I brought her home. I can't imagine my life without her now.
