A Labrador Rescue
From the Streets of Alabama, to a High Kill Shelter, Leo was discovered by Labrador Friends of the South, Inc.. My good friend Elena Pesavento told me to go check out the new Lab that needed to be fostered. She said "I think you will really like him ;)." When we went to go see him and take pictures, Saban was malnourished, dirty, had horrible coat, callused joints from laying outside all day and poor pigment.
Becoming a Part of the Family
So we decided to foster him. Took Saban home and gave him a nice bath and a good meal. Brody was ecstatic to have a new play friend. A week passed and Saban began to start coming out of his shell. We had our share of mishaps, like stealing food off the counter, some marking and general anxiety but he was growing on us. So much so, that I never put him on the Labrador Friends of the South website. Elena kept asking if I was going to post him. I kept saying "later". Well "Later" never happened and on April 27th, 2012, Saban was officially apart of our family. Yes, that is a Goofy Labrador Shirt. It is amazing to watch Saban grow and flourish in our family and to see what a little TLC can do to a Labrador Rescue.
It's Saban's Birthday. He can do whatever he wants. Even if that means getting on the table to eat his cake. We don't officially know Saban's Birthday, nor do we care to. His new life began on April 27th so that will be his Birthday. We are so grateful to have Saban in our lives. He is a reminder that there are so many good souls that are just waiting to find their forever homes.
