In 2012 I had bought my first house and I thought that it would be nice to get my first dog, Jude, a friend. I found Sadie at AFH while looking for Rottweiler/lab mix puppies that would look like one of my childhood dogs. It appears now that she somehow found her way in with a litter of real rottie mixes and no one was more surprised than I when she grew into not being a Rottweiler mix at all. It didn’t matter however, because she became my best friend. She was my wife’s shadow, her closest confidant. Sadie welcomed our 2 kids home with open paws and selflessly became their guardian and protector. We said goodbye to our sweet girl just a few days go after a long fight with lymphoma. We loved Sadie, and she loved us.
