There's a new girl in town...

And her name was Sadie. This is her....


She isn't the prettiest lab in the world, but poor baby is 10 months old and on house #5.  She's a drivey, energetic, LOVELY little (well, not that little, let's be honest- she's the biggest dog in the house) Black Labrador. 


She started life out by being sold to a drug dealer and she lived in complete hell until someone rescued her but couldn't manage her so gave her to a friend, who gave her to the family I got her from. They said she was untrainable. They said she was destroying the house. They said she was AWFUL, stubborn, hated the cats etc.


What did I find? A dog that Sophie LIKES. That NEVER happens. A dog that learned the tunnel in 2 seconds flat. Also sit. And, respect the leash when I have it in my hand (mostly). I also found a dog who has the best doggy greeting manners I have ever seen in a rescue- she like everyone! Yes, she's 10 months old and has had no rules. Yes, she's a bit of a brute.  But, she's black and everyone loves her here. I'm in trouble. I've renamed her Jorja and I suspect I'll be keeping her around for a while at least.

What dog wouldn't be difficult living life like that? Jorja will bloom with love and stability in her life. Hooray to you for providing her with that, even if it's just for a period of time. She sounds like a diamond in the rough.

what an adorable girl! Look at that face! And I like her new name. It sounds like she just needed the right handler with a bit of patience and understanding! And it sounds like she would fit right in your home! :-)

Awww she's so cute!!! What a sad story where she comes from. I'm glad you found her and rescued her. Even if all you do is teach her manners, train her and find her a new home you'll still be her hero. I think she may be around for longer than that though. :D
