I'm active on a cat board but have had trouble finding an active dog board so I was excited to find you this morning.
I'm RAFM. My DH and I have 2 dogs, a 12 yo lab/hound mix named Charlie and a 2 yo min pin/daschund/beagle? Mix. Charlie was adopted from a no-kill rescue when he was 1 and we got Abby from a high-kill shelter when she was about 6 months.
Charlie is a great dog but had numerous problems when he came to us including being both child and cat aggressive....which wasn't good considering we do cat rescue. But, some time with a behaviorist and age have mellowed him out, although we still use a muzzle when we walk him. It's just the responsible thing to do.
Abby is the sweetest dog I've ever had. We adopted her 6 weeks after losing our daschund Andy to a spinal cord tumor. We weren't expecting to get another dog but DH'sfriend sent us a picture of her in the shelter and she looked so terrified and sad he couldn't resist her. She's my girl. I'm currently working on getting her registered as a therapy dog.
We also have 5 cats. We take in older cats, or special needs kitties that are being released by their families.
Looking forward to checking out the boards!
