Hard to believe this girl - who just bathed her "baby" before setting in for a bed time snuggle - was about to be put down because she was too sick to be temperament tested. Even 5 and some change years later she being "only a foster" is my fave thing that I've ever failed at. ❤
Happiest dog ever. Thank goodness she’s my best friend - I need her strength... and cuddles, being the best hiking partner (even though I get a lot of “I don’t care we are lost, I get to hike longer” looks), snooting for petting, and “please share food with me, you’re on a diet” reminders 💛🐕💛 #lucythelab#labsofinstagram#whoreallyrescuedwho
Z is coming right along with her #teamdog training we’re learning from @mritland!!!🐾 She is SO good that we could even stop and enjoy the view today down at the beach! 🙌🏻 Yes there were other dogs 🐕 with checked out owners and there were volleyball games 🏐 but we are so on it... sexy duck treats 🦆 a clicker to mark and kibble to hold engagement and 💥 we are superstars!!!! That’s right! Sand on the nose because we are cataloging scents like a supercomputer! 🐾 I need a GSD to feel safe walking around, so I’m crazy grateful I can have the support I need. On our walk today we had to walk past three addicts (meth, crack, heroine I’m not sure which but all I know is danger zone is everywhere any time of day. ) I keep my girl safe and she does the same in return. Z is shining with this training and I’m loving learning it, too. This must be heaven... we’re eating and loving our way to fantastic behavior. 🐾 Yesterday i saw a woman yelling “no” 20 times to her dog and pulling on his leash while he was doing he own dog thing ignoring her and it broke my heart. I was so relieved to have this training, to be able to engage my girl and keep calm while running past the chaotic situation praising her the whole time instead. Can’t say enough about this amazing training. We’re no #navyseals and we have a long way to go but feeling pretty awesome being able to walk on the beach in a calm way just 4.5 weeks post adoption. Thanks Mike! #whosagoodgirl#germanshepard#whoreallyrescuedwho#rescuedogs#esa#emotionalsupportanimal#askforhelp#santamonica#santamonicaproblems#lifeguard#lifeguardtower#beach#makeadogsday#teamdogtraining
I’m pretty sure I’ll never get a normal photo with these two and that’s perfectly fine 😂 They’re my little buddies, the ones I hang out with 90% of my time, and they couldn’t be more opposite in personality (and looks too 🤷🏼♀️).

Everyday it blows my mind that someone gave you up... in a selfish way I’m glad they did so we were able to find each other 💜 #adoptdontshop

This is Doug. This is Doug wondering why we live here. Doug's humans are wondering the same thing. .
