Paco came to us unexpectedly when two men threw him out of their Jeep and into our ditch. He was about five months old, well groomed and house broken. It was 3 days prior to my first knee replacement and I was reluctant about having a puppy around while recovering. We had just lost our beloved Libby, a black lab we had for 12 years and weren't sure we wanted another dog. We quickly decided that we wouldn't take him to shelter but watch for lost dog ads and such. About a month later we were pleased to have our vet tell us he had no chip and he could be ours. Paco was great, right from the start he slept right next to my chair while I was recovering. He can shed a small dog in a couple of days but that's okay. He is still quite energetic and loves to ride in the truck, something our Lab did not like. He is an excellent watch dog, letting us know when anyone is near. We are glad we gave him a chance and welcomed him as part of our family.
