Sandy and Emma's Story

So before I got Sandy, we had two dogs at home with the family. Ruth and Mocha, both Goldens. Ruth passed away and so after a few years I really wanted a dog of my own and Mocha could use a playmate.

I started looking for dogs in rescue groups and I finally came across Sandy! I saw a litter of Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix puppies and I knew I had to adopt one. I contacted the rescue group and found out only one was left, so I quickly said I’ll take her! Talking to the woman, I found out a pretty cool story about Sandy.

They actually rescued her mother first, and they took the dog to the vet to get spayed. As the vet opened her up, they saw she was pregnant! Oops! So they quickly closed her back up and a few months later Sandy and her siblings were born! Another crazy thing is, believe it or not, her mother was a husky mix! Sandy, and all her siblings, look like almost complete Rhodesian Ridgebacks with a few missing a ridge. Not one looked like the mother! That father must have had strong genes.

When I went to pick Sandy up, the fostering family said they almost chose Sandy to keep and that she was their favorite. But their kids liked one of the pups that had dual colored eyes. So immediately I knew Sandy was special. I was so excited to bring her home and call her mine.

She has brought so much joy into my life and I couldn’t imagine life without her! I definitely got the best pup!! She is the sweetest dog around with the best temperament. We love to snuggle on the couch and watch TV together. Sandy thinks she’s a 90 pound lapdog and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
