Our Dog's Story

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Purina One, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #ONEDifference

Okay, so in the interest of honesty I should start off by saying I was not a dog person when I met our dog, but I've grown to love her. She is part of our family now; here is our story.

Our dog spent her first 2 years in Georgia where she was basically a puppy making machine, and at age 2, after recently having a litter of puppies, she was left at a shelter to be put down. I guess she had weened her babies, and was of no more use to her owner [so sad]. We were told that she was within hours of being euthanized when South Jersey Rescue found out about her and arranged for her to come up to Jersey to live with a foster family until she could find a permanent home. SJR said that being as young as she was, with such a sweet loving temperament, they couldn't let this dog be put down just because of lack of space/finances, etc. At this time our family had already grown by 2 cats, who were a BOGO deal from the SPCA, but my husband and I had a deal before we got married. He was a dog person and I was a cat person, so we either had to have BOTH or can see which way this is going...We were going to have BOTH. 

After having our cats for a year we started the dog search and found this lab online and my husband kept saying "Labs are too big; I don't even want to meet her," but I kept bugging him [as labs were the only dogs I'd ever known in my extended family and 'tolerated'] until he finally agreed, and it was love at first woof. Turns out she's the size of a beagle, so not too big at all. This story gets even better though. Not only is she AMAZING with our 2 cats and other dogs, she also loves all kids. We currently have a 17 month old son and a 2.5 year old foster child and they pet/push/pull/lay on her, and she doesn't even bat an eye. We couldn't have asked for a better dog than our Millie!

Since Millie had a rough start we want to ensure that she has a happy, healthy life moving forward, and we are looking forward to participating in Purina One's 28 day challenge. Trying Purina One for 28 days should lead to a healthier dog in the following ways: eye health, dental health, digestion, energy, healthy skin & a beautiful coat. We can't wait to see how much she loves it, which I'm sure she will. She seems to love all foods!
