Hello, hello! I'm Phantom!
Hello to all members of Dog Forum! I'm Phantom. My friend oceanmist recommended I join, so I did! I don't have all that much to say in all honesty. I'm an avid dog lover and have grown up around dogs! My first dog, Cassie was a beautiful gentle giant. She was a mix between a German Shepard and a Newfoundland. We rescued her as a puppy when I was three and had her until she was a month shy of twelve. She had bone cancer and one of her back legs broke, leaving her unable to function at all without the help of a person. So a week after she broke her leg, we had to put her down.
My family was very torn up about it for a few years. Cassie was so special to us and we couldn't even think about getting another dog. About two years after her death, we finally decided we wanted to get another dog. Then, this June, we adopted our lovely puppy Gemma! We adopted her from a shelter in Alabama that rescues dogs from kill shelters and had her transported up here. She's a real mutt! The only breed we're almost positive she has in her is German Shepard. We think she has some sort of hound, maybe Pitbull or Black Cur. But she is now around nine months old and is very happy here with us! I'm very excited to see how she'll react to snow especially since we've been getting flurries in the mornings!
It's a pleasure to meet you all and I hope I can learn a lot from you all!
