This is our rescue, Angel. She is just a little over 5 years old now, but we rescued her from the shelter when she was just 2 months old. She was the last of the little of puppies they had, she had been overlooked because she was being treated for kennel cough and she was shy. We changed her name to Angel, the shelter actually named her Peggy and we felt it just didn't fit.
We fell in love with her and took her home but within a few days she was in the hospital because she was still coughing and became lethargic. They said it was common with shelter animals, her kennel cough turned into pneumonia and she was in the hospital for a couple of days getting IV fluids and IV antibiotics. When we were finally able to bring her home she was a different puppy than when she went in, she was so happy, skinny, but happy. Our $25 adoption, quickly turned into $1,000.
Angel quickly learned how to get along with the cats and now she is just a spoiled rotten puppy dog. We still call her puppy from time to time even though she's 5 now. She sleeps in my daughters room at night, but spends the rest of the time with me, either under my desk, on the couch or we're out playing or taking walks.
The shelter said she was a Border Collie/Lab mix. Some times I wonder what else she may be a mix of. The pic is a side view of her, so you can't see how broad her chest is but I think you can see it in my post about pet presents. Do you think they are right or do you possibly see a different breed in her?
