Back in 2003, we had just bought a new house and we thought that we needed a new dog to go with it. We were not really looking, but the family happened to be out at the local Petsmart and they were hosting an adoption event. PAWS http://www.paws.org/ was one of the organization there. John spotted Biscuit away from the rest of the puppies and dogs, sitting in her crate. She was very shy and just looked a bit nervous. John decided that was the one he wanted. So she became part of the family.
Biscuit was a mix - her papers called her a "Tri-colored Beagle", but she was also something else (probably pit-bull).
