Our family got Annabelle from the local vet the day she was due to be put down. She was left at the lake and at the vet for months (we did not see she was there until the day we got her) without rescue.
She was tri-colored, around 3 years old, the sweetest thing we had ever seen. Her tail circled all the time. She never was in a hurry. Loved each of us and only got mad or fierce when someone (another dog) tried steeling her food.
We had her for 3 years before she was hit by a drunk driver in our driveway. She decided she wanted to stay outside that night. I woke from a nightmare in which someone shot her only to find her hit in the way. We were all heart broken and are looking forward to owning Harley an eight week old girl whom we are picking up soon.
