REECE, CHOCOLATE LAB/PIT
I do some volunteer work here and there for Labrador Friends of the South and even tried fostering once. This one time fostering led to Reece. Reece is a 1 year old Chocolate Lab/Pit bull mix (Pitador) that I adopted from Labrador Friends on August 14, 2007. I think this foster failure thing happens to every foster parent at least once! Reece has come a long way since I adopted him. He was found by a LFS friend by the side of a road, emaciated and infested with ticks and fleas. He hasn't stopped eating since! I cannot get over how much of an attention hog Reece is. He is always looking for love and always wanting to be right under foot (which I know is a trait for both breeds). I really noticed how much Reece wants attention from everyone so tested him in my Therapy Dog organization that I am a member in with my other Lab. So, on April 19, 2008, at only 1 year and one month old, Reece became a Therapy Dog with Happy Tails Pet Assisted Therapy! He goes on visits with children in hospitals and behavioral facilities, drug rehab patients and psychiatric patients, and educates the public on being around dogs and how to treat them, and just offers his love to everyone! It's such a rewarding activity for both of us.
