My adopted sister, Gracie!

Updated on March 19, 2013

Gracie's story!

Gracie was born in a very unpleasant place. She was born and lived on a rural farm with 70 other dogs. She lived with a hoarder, grew up wild, had to beg and fight for anything and everything. It was a rough place to live.

One day the Sheriff of the county went to the hoarder and took away all her dogs. She just couldn't take care of them all. The adults were euthanized because of illness and aggression, we were told. A nice lady that lived in the county worked with the Sheriff and a local vet to help the remaining pups find homes. The local vet took in the 20 puppies until the nice lady could list them on and get them all adopted.

Well, staying with a vet sounds like a great place to be. But they didn't have the facilities, room or staff to take care of 20 puppies. So they put them four to a crate, never took them out and fed them all they wanted, so they wouldn't fight with each other. Four weeks later, Mum found Gracie on

We drove two hours to see Gracie. And boy did she smell real bad. She was so loving and happy playing with my Mum and my Mum's friend that went with us.

Then when I met her, I gave her a little warning bark ('cause I'm the boss, you know) and she backed right off. That was a great sign. I'm not always the easiest to get along with, so we knew she would be a great addition to our family. So we took her home.

Now Gracie and I are the best of buddies. Mum even swears that I run better in agility when Gracie is there to support me. It's amazing she turned out to be so sweet after all she went through. She is the best playmate and sis a pup like me could ever ask for.

So here's to our Gracie girl. The goofiest, funnest, funniest, happiest, craziest, most loving pup on the planet.

What's Gracie been up to?

Gracie has lived with us about six years now and we just don't know what we would do without her.

She keeps the peace in the family, makes sure my kittie brothers are all accounted for, trains and competes in agility (and wins blue ribbons too!), does lots of tricks, performs at children's birthday parties, bugs me sometimes, and plays, and plays, and plays.

She's just about the most easy going, social butterfly pup I've ever known. And she's helped me learn a lot about getting along with other dogs..

We just don't know what we would do without our "Gracie Girl!"
