Mia and her littermates were rescued from a kill shelter in Moulton, AL and a friend called to alert us that a lab puppy might be available. We met the rescuer in a hotel parking lot, were handed the 8-wk old puppy, and she left. Mia had parvo and, thanks to our great veterinarian, survived. She was the youngest of our 3-dog pack until May 2019 and she now loves being the queen. We spent a week at the beach in December, a first for Mia, and she grinned the entire week!
