Its actually a funny story about Mercy and Grace. I wanted a small dog when I originally started looking for a fur baby. Of course I also wanted to rescue one from a humane society. (adopt don't shop) So when looking I found what they told me was going to be a small schnauzer mix. Comes to find out she is an almost 60 pound labradoodle. Then the second time around with Grace I wanted a bigger friend for Mercy. I was told she was a pitbull. I went to go pick this sweet little puppy up and comes to find out she is a dachshund mix. But when it comes down to it they are the best pair I could have ever asked for. They are the best dogs!
