This Jewel is a real gem! In mid-January Jewel, a two-year-old Labrador Retriever-Bully Breed mix, arrived at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina, where she was known as Izzy. We're not sure how or why she ended up at the shelter, but she was not alone; her young son Sven arrived with her. Not only was she a larger black dog in a small rural high-kill shelter, but she had an unexpected surprise - she was also pregnant. Her last day to get rescued or adopted was January 27th.
