OK.. maybe not a puppy.. she's 2 years old. We have been working with a dog rescue group, and they matched our family up with this dog. The first dog we inquired about they did not think would be a good fit for the family- too active. She was a 70lb Lab/Dobie mix. This dog is is a 2 year old Australian Shepherd mix, 38lbs. They say she is really laid back and good with kids. Her name is Sheba. She will be ready to pick up on Friday.
