New Four Legged Family Member!
I fell in love with her when I saw her post up on the rescue groups Facebook. Her foster Mom said she has a goofy, gentle personality, loves kids and dogs, and loves to play fetch.
Abby was also a breeding dog. They tend to be very loving and gentle.
My husband took time off from work so we could get a home inspection and after they talked to our references and our Vet we were approved. The volunteer brought over her very large retriever to see how Abby reacted and they were instant best friends. Abby loves other dogs.
She will be here tomorrow and a big Orvis bed is being air shipped to be here tomorrow so she has her own bed.
I think we nailed the home inspection when in the spot usually reserved for a giant TV was a big dog crate and a pile of toys (we gave our TV away to make room for dog stuff).
Laralei was her name at the breeder's. The foster Mom says she doesn't react to it, (very little human interaction) but we will keep it for now. Abby and Laralei have a nice ring to it. Thank you Chicagoland Lab Rescue.
