Smile Our New Rescue! (Photo Heavy)

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that two stray puppies had showed up at my house, and that Rob and I had to take them to the shelter. We were hoping to adopt the male when he was ready, but then Rob lost his job. Well, I heard from the shelter on Thurs. that the puppy was ready, but I put them off because of our situation, and told them I'd call them on Friday with a decision. I'm so glad I didn't tell them "no" because yesterday morning Rob got the job we had been hoping for, and it happened to be Rob's birthday as well, so we went right to the shelter to get the pup! He is a Labrador/Hound mix, and is settling right in with Cody and Casey. He has huge webbed paws, and some spots of black in his fur..I'm wondering if he's Catahoula Leopard/Lab. Either way, he is going to be very big! He's approximately 3 months old, and as big as both my terriers lol. So, without any further ado...here is "Leo"!

We were thinking part pit when he showed up at our doorstep, the other pup with him was definitely a brindle pit mix...he has almost fully webbed paws, so def some kind of water dog/lab..I don't know for sure. I just love him!

We didn't want to either, but our female rescue was so abused that bringing another female into the mix would not have worked, and no one would probably have adopted them together. The little girl is so cute I'm sure someone will love her!

Leo is adapting well, and making his space in the pack. I am exhausted, but so happy that we were able to adopt him. He is such a love bug, and very smart and attentive! A wonderful addition to our family!

Congrats. on your new buddy Leo. He's so adorable. Sounds like it was meant to be with the job, birthday, puppy all at the same time.

Thanks Romad...that's how it felt too. It was time to balance out all the rough days with a few really good ones!

TY starrlamia! Yeah, he is really big already...his dang paws are like ping pong rackets, and webbed to boot! Lot's of dog food is going to be needed! I'm glad my terriers don't eat a whole lot lol! I'm so excited to have the new guy...and the new betta(s).
