New to the site here are my pups!

The first picture is the Toy Poodle I've had since I was about 6 years old (I'm 17 now). He's a very neurotic little thing and always has been. I'm pretty sure he thinks he's a cat. He's not a fan of other dogs but he's a part of the family and I love the little dude. His name is Toby (named after Toby Keith)

The second picture is of our Boxer, Laila Rose. My mom is a dog groomer and a customer bought her from a breeder and was going to show her. When she took Laila to the vet it was discovered that Laila had a deformed heart valve that caused about 80% of her blood to not pump through properly. It was also a genetic condition so she had the vet spay her. The next time she brought Laila in to get a bath she told my mom all about the heart condition and one thing led to another and my mom brought Laila home. Laila was like a normal Boxer until she was about 3 years old. Then we weren't able to take her on walks (We live in Arizona so it get hot) and I couldn't play as much with her. Despite all of this we still adored her and she was amazing with my little sister. She had her moments where she seemed happy and healthy but then other days she could hardly move (she had hip problems). Long story short she passed away in the summer of 2013 at the age of 7.

The third picture is of my baby, Levi Wyatt. He's a miniature Australian Shepherd that my mom got me the summer before my freshman year of highschool. I don't know what I would do without him. Levi is the greatest dog I've ever known/owned. He has his quirks... He wasn't very well socialized so he's skiddish and shy toward strangers. He also won't sleep in my bed with me, he insists on sleeping against my closed bedroom door. However, when he sleeps with my mom (like if I'm gone for some reason) he's a total bed hog!! I love him to pieces and I couldn't imagine not having him as my pet.

The fourth picture is Henry. He's my moms Boston Terrier. I'm not a huge fan of him but he is a cuddle bug. He's also kind of adorable but he's also a brat.

The last picture is my other baby, Rosie Posie (Poesy). She is a Dachshund Cairn Terrier mix (I think). I've only had her for about a month but she's a one of a kind. She is sooo trusting, I can pick her up with one arm and she doesn't even flinch! I can't wait until she's older and I really have a chance to get to know my puppy!

Very cute!

Do you have any plans to work on Levi Wyatt's socialization? A lot of us here have adopted unsocialized adult dogs and socialized them. My own dog was really skittish when I got him and now he's not at all.

He was really bad up until the last year or so. Men still frighten him if they try to give him immediate attention but I've been working on his confidence and today when I took him to the grooming shop (My Grandma owns it so I can bathe my dogs myself for free) they wanted to help train one of the new bathers so my grandma asked if I would let her dry Levi and he did amazingly well considering a complete stranger was blow drying him! Do you have any other suggestions though? I would love to not have to explain to people that he's friendly just shy but he won't bite. He tends to make weird moaning whining noises when he doesn't like something/someone but that's all he'll do.

Welcome! All of your dogs are gorgeous, but I really love your Boxer,& your Aussie. I'm 17 too, it's always nice to see people age here.
