    To bottom line it. I need you to keep your ears open. A couple weeks ago we lost our Digger to a massive infection. She was 14. She was a Black lab/pit mix(mostly Lab). We have had the talk and want another little buddy. Sammy the Wolf gets along with pups. She;s getting old too at 16 , so a Black lab or mix in the 6-12 week range is what we are looking for. Female preferred. I'm in the Plano/Frisco area. We are keeping an eye on the shelters. If you hear of something --please pm me---thanks, H

    Will keep a look out. Sorry for your loss. I couldn't imagine my life without my little Baxter.

    My dog is half black lab and half black German shepherd. His photos are still on their website (we've had him for 9 years and he is still in fantastic shape):

    Sorry for your loss, HD. Mrs says that someone left a box of 9 puppies at the end of the drive the otherday. I will be back at the homestead tonight and will send you a pic tomorrow. I'm a few hours from you, but willing to make the drive up if you think you might want one (or 2).

    I caught them at nap time... We have no way of knowing exactly what breed. They are eating regular food (softened with warm water) & still have blue eyes. Mrs estimates that they are about 8-9 weeks old. There are a couple of white toes.

    Is there a story behind Digger’s name?

    Ya know, I don't think so. Seems like we got her and both of us said "Digger" at the same time. So it stuck! She lived up to the name. Between her and Sammy--EVERY- stump was dug up in our yard within a year!

    Just a heads up. T-Rex came through for us . He and his family drove about 3 hours to meet Deb and I with a bunch of pups for us to look at. We took two for us and two for another friend!- 20171121_223358 (1).jpg Meet "B" and "Mags"

    Glad I could help with your situation. I am down to 1 lonely girl. (I have a feeling she will be assimilated into the herd....)
