Having an open mind helps many of us find happiness, and also saves lives. Samantha and her dog Ellie are a perfect example of this. Ellie is a gorgeous Great Dane and Labrador mix. Thanks to AO & JO Photography and Videography for sharing this beautiful engagement session!
From Sam: “Before meeting my husband, I adopted Eleanor ‘Ellie’ Rigby (I named her after a Beatle’s song) from a kill shelter in Wayne County, NC. Her previous owners surrendered her. I went to the shelter to look at a different dog; I had my heart set on a chocolate lab.
Ellie has been such a wonderful dog. She is a six-year-old Labradane (Great Dane and Lab mix). She has such a sweet soul and personality. Ellie wins everyone’s hearts who meets her. I’m so glad she won mine. My husband and I try our best to include her in everything we can.
If you know someone who is considering giving a pet up, please make sure they understand that owner surrenders are living on borrowed time in some shelters. It is especially important to find a no-kill organization for older pets.
