First, we found Magic on the internet. It was LOVE at first site! She was a 3-month old female puppy. She led us to her home website where we found Sadie, a 5yr old female. After I read her biography, I said to my husband Terry that we have to adopt Sadie too. I just felt she was a wonderful dog and would fit in our home with Magic and Max, our 13 yr old Lab mix.
Magic is a very fun-loving, intelligent, and sweet puppy. The first night home she learned that if she sits pretty in the kitchen she gets treats. She learned that from Max. At training classes at Pet Smart she just sits or lays at our feet quietly and she does everything the trainer wants her to do. You show her once and she will do what you ask. Even with all the distractions of people and other dogs she stays close to us and follows commands. The Trainer said she is a GREAT DOG! We thinks so too!
In the morning, after Terry goes to work we all sleep in. Both Sadie and Magic lay beside me. Sometimes in the afternoon we all take a nap. All three dogs are sleeping beside me. Yes, all of us in one bed! All three dogs go wherever I go.
Terry says, "Sadie is our DREAM dog". When Terry says "Come Sadie" she is at his side immediately. She is an intelligent, well-behaved dog and loves to ride in the pickup with him. He said she will set a good example for Magic and help teach her manners, and she does. She is very close to Terry.
At anytime both dogs are willing to please! They have brought GREAT JOY to our household. Even Max likes having them around. He was very lonely and did not eat well, but now he has a healthy appetite. When the snow melts we will be able to go for long walks in the fields again. By adopting Magic and Sadie, we bypassed the stereotype of always choosing a puppy. We would not hesitate getting an older dog in the future.
Terry was breed specific when we decided we wanted another dog. His choice is an American Staffordshire Terrier because they have a great personality and they make you laugh. He agrees with his friends that when a rescue dog finds a new family they are the best dogs ever! We can't imagine our lives without Magic and Sadie.
