Hi Pam!! We kept Pearl’s name the same, although our 2 year old son calls her PearlGirl. Pearl has been blending into our family quite nicely. Our older pit bull lab mix has been learning to love her and they have become best friends in such a short time. Pearl enjoys car rides, beach trips and being around her new family. She is obsessed with any toys that squeak and also loves to run in the sprinkler with our son. She is a blessing.
