Rex's mom says: I went to the Humane Society in May of 1999 looking for a little puppy that would grow up into a little dog. Instead I found an eight-month-old beast named Rex. He was already 60 pounds -â€“ bigger than any dog Iâ€™d had in my life. But he stole my heartâ€¦ and ate the furniture. But one look at that face and knowing some of what he had been through made it all worth it. He has matured into one of the most loving, gentle guys around. He loves riding in the car to look at cows and get ice cream! And my friends say he is the softest dog in the world. He is truly my baby.
