Emily & Jane

Rescued Emily (Tricolor Eng springer spaniel) from a puppy mill.  Barely 16 months old she had been bred twice.  I originally wanted a puppy but when seeing Emily’s plight I overpaid for her and brought her home.  She is my “velcro dog” at my side always.  Two years later we looked for a buddy and found Jane a black purebred American Lab at the shelter.  Six years old, beautifully house-trained and mannerly, chipped and health care up to day.  Brought from a  kill shelter in Indiana, no one wanted a mature big dog.  We did!  Jane and Emily hit it off immediately and the rest is history.  Two velcro dogs are at my side.
