    My son and daughter - in - law found this sweet little beauty running the neighborhood on Easter Sunday morning.
    We went over and picked her up, tired and thirsty but so sweet and friendly.
    I posted all over the pet sites on Facebook and hundreds of people shared my posts, looking for her owner.

    We took her to PetSmart and had her scanned for a chip.
    We tracked her original owner down and she was going to come and get her.

    I asked the lady if we could keep her as we had already fallen in love with her.

    The family has had a series of unfortunate circumstances and readily agreed, much to my surprise.
    She will be bringing us her vet records and chip information tomorrow and now this sweetheart is ours.

    We had to have our 13 year old German Shepherd, Jax, put to sleep on April 4th and were not ready to have another dog, yet.
    (Or so we thought)

    Sonya Peaches, made us ready, because she immediately settled in and took over the house as if she belonged there.

    Good for you and the family Cindy.

    Dogs are so awesome. I'd love to have one, but not one of those small, yappy, ankle biter dogs. I just don't have the type of lifestyle that would be fair to a dog.

    When I'm on service calls, and a large dog greets me, I'll take a moment to greet and pet it. Sure enough, it gets more petting as its head rests on my lap while I'm repairing the computer. I don't know if the dog enjoys it more than I though! The greatest part is when I have to stop petting it, and a couple of minutes later it will come back with one of its toys and drop it on my lap, or on the floor next to me. It then looks at me with an adorable expression that say's, "What the heck are you waiting for? Play with me!"

    Looking good. No longer tired and thirsty.

    I have always loved the German Shepherd breed and never expected to have a dog like Peaches.
    She won us over on the first day.
    Jax has been gone for almost three weeks and the house has never seemed so empty without him.

    I hope this little doggie is as trainable as all of our shepherds have been.
    She looks to be mostly black Labrador with a bit of German Shepherd.
    I left the house today and when I came back home, I was greeted with a bit of a mess.
    She's a counter surfer and ate what was left of the Easter brownies and the apple pie was on the floor but she couldn't get the plastic container open.
    A brand new bag of Dorito's were also on the floor, she couldn't get them open either.
    But, oh…..did she go to town on the brownies. :bnghd::biggrin:

    Even though we know her original name, we changed it to Roxie and she is responding to it already.

    Crate training works well for bathroom habits.

    When my dog was young, she'd get on the counters when I was away. I picked up a couple of alarms from Radio Shack. One would activate when it fell. So I hooked it up to some thread and lined the perimeter of the counter tops. The other alarm was motion activated.

    She's house broken, that's not a problem.
    It's the food that she got into.
    We've never used a crate before, although I know a lot of people that do.
    Our dogs have always had free run of the house.
    Something we have to work on with her.
    Those brownies could have been dangerous.
    Luckily, there were only three left.
