“After living in New York City for two years, my family felt settled.

Our kids were six and eight at the time, and were begging us for a dog.

We started looking at rescue dogs.

We looked at the ASPCA first, and then the CACC, but we didn’t find an appropriate dog at either place.

We wanted a young dog, but not a puppy, between thirty and forty pounds because of apartment living.

At that point we thought it would be ideal to get a Labrador Retriever mix, because labs are considered family friendly.”
