Our dogs: Millie on the left, and Mook on the right are our current rescues which are both Pit Bull mixes.  Best dogs we've ever had after nothing but labs.  Full of love, trainable and mellow!

Millie is a dachshund / pitbull 

Mook has Husky, Pitbull, Chow, and Lab

They were both in "Kill Shelters" in South Carolina.
