We are writing this post with sadness and disappointment. Lucky Lab saved a litter of pups and our volunteers just happened to be able to meet the parents-- both of whom looked pretty darn lab-like! :)
We posted the pups for adoption and Fiona Blue got adopted in Texas. The adopter did a couple dog DNA tests on the pup and the results said she has no lab in her-- and now the adopter is returning her to our rescue, despite the fact she's a great pup. We are floored with the things that happen in rescue.
Fiona Blue is beautiful and smart and funny and loves to hug and play tug a war and fetch. She has had 5 weeks "in house training" with Barkingham Palace and knows all the commands. She is current on all her vaccinations. She's going to be a wonderful dog.
We also spoke to Finoa's trainer who says, "She's really sweet. A normal puppy. But that the owner is very hung up on her breed."
At Lucky Lab, we don't DNA test the dogs, we look at them and if they're a nice dog, seem labby and are at risk, we take them into our rescue. We don't ask them for a pedigree. These are lovely dogs in bad situations and we hope adopters realize that. We don't even know if the DNA tests are accurate!
She is about 8 months old and spayed and house trained, a great pup! Apply at www.luckylabrescue.com
