We were after a companion for our rescue dog, Lani. Although in Victoria, we saw a photo of Sam/Sax, a young pup in Canberra. We met halfway and Sax came home. Unfortunately we lost Lani to snakebite, 4 months later. Sax was devastated and couldn't be left alone. We started the search for a companion for him and were unsuccessful four times. Sax is a very powerful, full-on dog. I was looking on the petrescue.com site and noticed Huey, who looked very much like Sax, same age and breed. We applied for Huey but were again unsuccessful. Four weeks later, Huey was up for adoption again. We met in Albury, and Huey, now Louie, came home with us. Sax and Louie are full brothers, dumped at the pound at 12 weeks of age and reunited seven months later. The two of them are inseparable and spend their days following me around the garden, bushwalking, playing tag and wrestling, digging holes and doing zoomies on 12 acres. Louie was very timid around men, but has now gained more confidence whilst Sax can now be left without fretting. Two very happy dogs, filling our lives with joy and laughter.
