Newbie here saying hello
I have just joined the forum.
I have 2 dogs.
Lemmy is a 15 month old Staffy. We got him when he was 8 weeks old. He is a cheeky boy but very loving andwill just cover even a stranger with big licks if he was allowed.
Lottie is about 20 months. We rescued Lottie in October 2011. She is a Staffy/Boxer cross. She has the boxer body witha staffy face but the loose drooly top lip of a boxer LOL She's our smiler. She always has a waggy tail and the staffy smile. She was mistreated and neglected then abandoned when she was less thean a year old. She was never socialised. She was picked up as very skinny, frightened stray and was rescued from the pound before her 7 days were up and she would have been PTS. She was placed in a foster home but unfortunately the fosters dog didnt like her and attacked her so she was moved to kennels and from there to another foster then back to kennels then another foster untill she found us. We have put in the time and training it has required to help Lottie and will continue cos she's such a sweet loving girl if only she would let her guard down and let others see what we see. She goes to training classes like Lemmy and is doing really well. For a frightened skittish girl she has come so far that we even went on a bus ride the other day and she was as good as gold.
