Jamie came to us in August 2001 at the age of 4 1/2. She was our first foster for DDBS Rescue. She came to us extremely thin and very scared, her sad eyes told such a story. Though our initial intention was to foster her while waiting for an adoptive home, after being with us for just one night we knew we couldn't let her go, we fell deeply in love with this sweet girl. This was my husband's first exposure to helping with rescue, which he has come to love because of her, so Jamie was named after him, the feminine version of James. Even though she was scared of everything around her and would cower at the least little movement, Jamie still stayed by our sides with a look of longing. We wanted her to feel the love and security she had obviously never known, and felt that in order to give this to her she needed a permanent home, no more uprooting, so we decided she would live out the rest of her life with us and we adopted her. Jamie has come a long way in the past 4 years, she's happy and playfull, loves our other dogs, and is a wonderful Grandma-dogue to our puppies. She's one of the sweetest dogs we've ever had the pleasure of loving. Jamie has brought such joy to our home and is a wonderful ambassador to the breed, happily greeting people during her many outings. One of the many special things about Jamie is that she doesn't kiss in the normal tongue-licking way, she actually smacks her lips against your cheek! We wish that anyone who is hesitant about rescue, especially adopting an older dogue, could meet her, she's won many hearts and we absolutely adore her. Jamie is a very special part of our family and we are grateful to George Brown and DDBS Rescue for the chance to love this wonderful girl, our sweet Jamie.
