My name is Lauren and I just recently joined this forum. I have a yellow lab, Cheddar, and a lab/husky mix named Abby. Abby only weighs about 45 lbs. -- she's a very pretty little girl! I'm looking forward to being involved in the discussions here.
Yeah, she certainly is a cutie. The story of how we got her is pretty interesting-- there was a shelter in Tennessee I believe that had the whole litter (I think there were eight of them) who was going to put the whole lot down because no one was adopting them. Someone took all of the puppies from the shelter to save them, but couldn't keep them. So he took them up to a dog training place about a half-hour from my house so that the dog trainers could try and find homes-- we just happened to be driving by that day and saw a sign for free pups. She was the second-to-last one: all the puppies were adopted in a day!
She's proved to be an excellent, intelligent, beautiful dog. Only weighs about forty pounds, too! She's adorable.
