Best dog ever!
He is more like a person than a dog. A true companion, a kind and gentle creature, wise old eyes that can look right into your soul. He truly
understands human language and is fiercely loyal and protective but at the same time, a big snuggly wimp!
He turned 4 yesterday and is maxed out (I hope) at around 130 LBS give or take. His mom was abandoned down in Florida and put into a 30 day kill
shelter where she birthed a litter of 4. This guy was one of the 4 siblings. All of them yellow, except for him. At the time in my life, my mother
was sick. In fact, me and my family were nursing her toward her passing. My husband was on the couch after having major surgery. I was busier than
ever with work and we had just lost my boy dog of 11 years. Things were incredibly busy and tough in my house-hold. But I needed something... I needed
my heart back so that I could go on and that's when I found Bubba (his original name was Saul).
The woman from Great New England Dog Rescue contacted me and said they had found what I was looking for - "Large breed, male, lab mix, puppy". She
shot over his baby photo (one week old), I immediately paid the adoption fee! The little guy was barely 6 weeks old when he arrived. Having been
transported through dozens of states, put on lock down, neutered way too young, given shots, quarantined and checked out by many vets along the way,
he arrived safely at an animal hospital about an hour from me. My husband and I got in the car and made the drive through the city to pick him up.
There in the waiting room, one by one the vet assistants came out with these tiny puppies all swaddled up like infants.
The moment the vet assistant handed us our puppy, we were in love, and that hole in my heart filled right up!
He slept on my husband chest the entire way home and when we got him there and put him down on the kitchen floor, he met my older girl dog with
excitement, promptly ran around the entire house sniffing out every corner, came back, curled up on my feet and let out the biggest sigh of relief
I'd ever heard.
He knew he was home.
