Jodie was a street dog in Taiwan, found with a metal chain hanging from her neck and a collar embedded in her throat. She was rescued by a kind person and fostered until she was ready for adoption. Before we found Jodie on Petfinder, we had actually put our names on a list with a local breeder of English Labrador retrievers to buy a puppy. But a young friend posted something on Facebook that made us rethink purchasing and turn instead to adopting. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. Jodie is the sweetest dog anyone could want. She loves to play ball, sit in my lap on the floor, and swim. She is gentle with our orange tabby Pax and lets us do anything to her, including brush her teeth. We're pretty sure she is happy with us, although there is a sad look in her eyes that will always make us wonder what she went through before we adopted her, and she will always have that hairless patch on her neck to remind us of her past. We don't know much about her first 2 years of life, but we do know that we're going to make her remaining years the best they can be.
