Monkey, a rescued Labrador Retriever x puppy, makes a little boy smile. Taken at the reunion and first birthday party of Monkey and her 9 siblings, who were born in rescue last October 31, all since successfully adopted. A little extra special is that the little boy’s family adopted the momma dog who brought these 10 beautiful pups into the world. She was rescued days before her euthanasia, which would’ve taken place on around the day she ended up giving birth.
