I think she is a keeper, and a very lucky dog to have a new home. Congrats to the both of you.

Another dog gets a good home with an Airstream......

Hard to say. She is a cutie, but Lab? The face says no. Hair color? Could have been a Spitz or Schipperke in the wood pile with that Border Collie.

The way her ears stick up it reminds me of a German Sheperd

Part Border Collie and Lab. You know there are potentially fifty-five other parts. I bet she hears very well.

We rescued our Chloe last year. We saw her mother and she looked like a smallish Yellow Lab. It was rumored that her father was a Beagle. We just hoped he was from a good neighborhood.

As a puppy Chloe looked like a Golden Retriever. So much so that we and the Vet expected her to get pretty big. She finished growing at about 12 months. 43 pounds. She still looks a lot like a Golden with maybe some Irish Setter but in a more manageable size and her feathers aren't very long nor does she require clipping. She is a joy and I am certain Sissy will be too. Roger

I have no idea what her heritage is. She's a great lookin Dog. I know she's a lucky dog and will look great in front of an Airstream when U get one.
Karma to U for the rescue. We are rescue parents also, we got the two fer one deal. Two Mini-Schnauzers for the price of one. One puppy mill breeding female5 yrs old(that stopped breeding) an One Special Needs Female (Blind and Diebetic) 8 yrs old.In addition to our own Gidgett who is 11 that We raised from her birth.
Best of luck to U on your Airstream search

We have a rescue Border Collie/ brand x. Couldn't ask for a better companion. She recently mothered 2 rescue kittens. And if I have too much beer she herds me back to the Airstream.

We rescued her from a single wide trailer which had about 75 dogs inside. Took her with me because she was tiny and mellow. Turned out that was because she was half dead. Animal control euthanized all the other dogs because they said they were too far gone and had no other choice.

Lucky dog, but we are luckier.
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Definately a keeper, with those ears, she could hear a burglar at 50 feet, unless like ours she could care less!

Our Sophie is a rescue dog, but she chose us, and is definately keeping us. Good luck with your new child.

When people lie to you, and refuse to honor their word, don't regret trying to follow a dream, new adventures and friends await you.

She looks like Wyle E. Coyote...
Of course, we're still trying to figure out what our goofy-looking dog resembles...
