Hello from a Newbie in Canada!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!!!!

Just wanted to introduce myself and my new addition to my family.

I'm Lauren - I'm 27 and live in good 'ole Canada and this is Dexter!!!!!






I recently adopted him from the local SPCA where I live in Ontario. He is around 1 year old and I was told he is a sharpei/black lab mix! He was found as a stray in town here and was at the shelter for over two months. I happened to go in there last week (and this is after almost a year of "do I want to bring home a puppy or a dog, a small dog or a "real" dog) and as soon as I met him, I fell in love. He was hands on right from 30 seconds of meeting him; I could stick my fingers in his mouth, touch his paws, take toys from him, take his food from his bowl while he was eating.

Someone out there gave up on finding their amazing dog.

I am a relatively green dog owner; my family has had a lab and a whippet in the past, but Dexter is my OWN dog where no one else is involved with him

I look forward to learning about how to train Dex (he is a bit distracted on the leash, think "Yeah! We're going for a wal.... SQUIRRELL!!!") and post how his progress is going!
