All in the Family


Australian Shepherd / Labrador Retriever
September 6, 2014

Our beloved 14 year old rottweiler passed away in June 2014. w/in a month we knew we needed a 4 legged friend in our home once more, we really missed having one around. We searched through petfinder and decided we wanted an Australian Shepherd mix. We found one that we fell in love with right away! The rescue organization ended up stringing us along for 3 weeks before deciding that that they didnt want to adopt to a family with young kids (ours are 4 & 6). We were heartbroken. That night I looked on petfinder and a sweet little aussie mix popped up. His name was Finn which just happened to also be our son's name :) We decided he was meant to be ours. We sent in the application and he was ours by the following Friday. We named him Zephyr - the greek god of the west wind. In "an Ode to the West Wind" Percy Shelley uses the West Wind as a metaphor for change - death and rebirth. We thought that was fitting given how important our first dog was to us. We were told that Zephyr's mother was a purebred Australian Shepherd and the father is unknown but is suspected to be a yellow lab. The puppies were surrendered by the aussie's owner at 6 weeks. Zephyr came to us at 8 weeks. He is now 14 weeks and is smart, sweet and playful!
