Went to get pet food and they were having a "puppy event" featuring rescue dogs. So, now we have a second dog. :) Coco will have to lay down the law early -- even now, they weigh the same and the puppy is only 11 weeks old.

Oh, how cute... looking at that foot, it looks like it might get a little larger.  :-)  S/he looks quite alert and adoring.  What breed is it?

Not known. I'd guess a cross between something in the larger terriers and maybe Lab, Rhodesian Ridgeback, and/or Boxer. People keep guessing mastiff by the color, but I don't think so, her feet are big but not that big, and her face is not that wide. They say at week 16, dogs are half the size they are going to be, and she'll reach that point at the end of July, maybe giving us more clues. (If we are really curious, the vet can send in a DNA test.) She and her littermates were dropped at the shelter in a cardboard box at one week old, meaning definitely not purebred.

She's a smart and thoughtful girl. A foster volunteer bottle-fed them all, which is not only impressive, but also has resulted in a dog very socialized to people, and who will probably expect to be a lap dog even when she weighs 50 or 60 pounds. Coco is not charmed yet, but they slept in side-by-side doghouses in an enclosure at the farm the last two nights with no bratty barking or whining, so even Coco must see the value in no longer being asked to sleep in the garage by herself.

DNA test says American Staffordshire terrier, German Shepherd, Lab and -- wait for it -- Shar-Pei. Who knew!?!

Coco is 7. When we got the new girl, she and Coco were the same size. Ha! ha! ha! Now she's is twice her height and three times her weight. Coco is keeping her composure with the change -- she likes the company, doesn't like the romping in her face. lol

Pup's named Delphie.  :) We adore her.

I'll see if I can load some tomorrow. Her ears stand up now (I'm kind of sorry, I liked them down) but she is beautiful. She even has cute round, matched swirls on her butt!
