Here are your first set of pictures of our new family member, Gibby. I was lucky to get these as the only time he is still is when he is asleep - and the only time we have seen him asleep has been for the 30 minute car ride home. He is 11 weeks old and was in a litter of 11 pups. Notice the tail in a blur. He is mostly all in a blur.
His father was a Boxer and his mommy was a Labrador - Shar Pei mix. We are not sure how we will eventually look, but he is kind of adorable right now. We found him online at
Home Fur-Ever Rescue site. They are a wonderful bunch of folks who rescue pups from dire situations and kill shelters. It takes a special person to do that work and we are forever grateful that they do it.
We exchanged emails all week and met the foster Mom and Gibby yesterday. Today we attended their Rescue Adoption event and filled out lots of paperwork and brought our boy home. Roscoe and Lizzie; the cats, have yet to meet him. They are hanging out under the bed for awhile. They will come around. They don't like to admit it, but they kind of like dogs.
Hmmmm, that paw looks kind of big doesn't it. I think we will be busy here for the next couple of months.
