We just adopted Annie from a shelter in Chicago called PAWS. They are a no kill shelter, and I have never seen a shelter so professionally run. They do make you jump through some hoops to make sure that their dogs are going to a household that is a good fit for the pup.
Annie was her name when we met her, and we decided to add in the Jo because apparently she is my name sake. As will be my first daughter. Not weird, I promise.
Annie has the best temperament I have ever seen in a puppy, she is so relaxed and sweet. She doesn't chew on things and she is so obedient. She has spent most of her life in a pound or shelter, so this really is her personality.
The vet thinks she is a black lab and grey hound mix.
We couldn't feel luckier.
