Hello everyone. My name is Sarah, and my family and I just adopted a black lab (Raven) from a local shelter. I don't think she's pure, but I really don't know. She has a white chest, and I didn't know if that was any indication of being a mix or not?? Anyway, I don't know much about Labs, except that I like the breed. We also have a Chihuahua/Dacshund mix and a Basenji. We are having troubles with the Basenji welcoming Raven into our home. We are thinking of rehoming the Basenji through BRAT. I realize some people may not agree with that decision because our Basenji was in our home first (I caught heck for it at the Basenji forums!). However, Raven is a better fit for our home; she plays with the kids and is a great guard dog which we need because of the neighbors we have. Anyway, Raven was an owner surrender and she's 2 years old. We just love her and I want to learn as much about the breed as possible!
