Little orphan Annie found a home three years ago when owner Allison Biel found her wandering the streets of Lakewood as a puppy. The Lakewood Hills neighbor took her to the vet, who said the lab mix would look like a new dog after a month of TLC. “She hit the jackpot,” Biel says. Today, Annie is living the dream Daddy Warbucks style with her two feline siblings, who like to remind her that they were adopted first. Annie loves rubs on her reddish fur, going for walks on the Santa Fe Trail and serving as the family watchdog when the mail carrier comes to visit.
