Arrival Story:
Almost 14 years ago, my daughter and I moved to this property and were looking for a dog to complete the family. We made trips nearly every day to the local animal shelter until we found a dog that was a 'perfect match'. That was Biscuit. When we got home, my husband said 'Take that Pit Bull back!' - Pit Bull? I said, she’s an AKITA/Lab, look at her purple polka-dotted tongue and the curve of her tail! 'Well, I don’t like her! he says... Well that 'don’t like that dog' feeling quickly dissipated when she won our hearts with her beautiful doggy-ness! Biscuit was badly abused by her former owners , she was apparently beaten with a broom, flyswatter and had her feet injured somehow. It took us a long time to help her get over the need to tuck-tail and run when we would sweep the floor or swat at a fly. Still have to have our ver muzzle her to clip the toenails. BUT that is THE only little problem we have with this beautiful girl. Biscuit is THE PERFECT dog, she required almost no training and seems to just know what is expected. About a week after I adopted her, our vet told us that she had one of the more severe cases of hip displasia he'd seen. Surgery would run in the $3000.00 dollar range for both hips. Back to the animal shelter we went. I just couldn’t afford that kind of surgery for my dog. BUT the shelter helped out and their HSUS vet did her first hip for the cost of x-rays and meds. Out of pocket was about $150.00. So we were able to keep her after all. The second hip could wait a few years. Both hips, although sore alot, still hold up, 13 years later! She's a beauty and my first baby (furbaby that is)

Bio:
Biscuit pass on to the Rainbow Bridge on March 1, 2005. A sad but true reality of human life is that our dogs do not live as long as we do. Never again and never before was there a dog who could match this one. Truly a one of a kind companion. I miss her still. Her old body just gave out. But considering her life, and the life we rescued her from, she live high on the hog (so to speak) and conducted herself with the utmost of doggy manners. She was, Top Dog, and dont forget it! Was born with good manners and seemed to be trained by herself!?
