    Hi everyone, So my husband & I rescued an ACD from high killed shelter around last month and we named her Blu. We have told that she is about 3 years old. Apparently, she was abandoned by owner who tided her up in chain, i'm guessing mostly outside. We picked out a few ACD online & met a few...

  4. Sudden Odd Behavior In Rescue Dog

    New Additions
    We rescued a 1.5 year old Jackabee last week from our local shelter - he's been a complete dream. Honestly, we have no clue how he was found as a stray, since he's already been partially trained, and is so loving around people. He welcomed us immediately, and seemed to adjust well to our home...

    My partner and I are fostering a 3 year old 6.5lb toy poodle rescue. She has taken very well to us and is very affectionate and playful now. We have trained various tricks and a relatively good heel, and we have house trained her. She is dominant and high strung, and fear bites/nips other...
  9. Why buying a dog while you can adopt one

    New Additions
    When my wife started putting the idea in my head of adopting a dog, to be honest I wasn't so sure at first since I was more the type of person who would prefer a full breed dog and not a mixed one, shelters tend to be a hard place to find a full breed dog (at least that's why I thought at the...
  10. Had a GREAT evening with Ben!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Our lovely rescue pup has been having some trouble settling at night and, though he's calm and happy during the day, he becomes 'hyper' at night, struggles to settle and begins bashing around the place, hard mouthing me and anything in his path. It's by far the hardest time of day with him and...

I'm looking forward to meeting as many of you guys as possible and...
