Hi! I'm new here. We were adopted by a 3 month old black lab/shepherd mix over the weekend. And we are so happy! We have wanted a puppy for years, but the timing was never right. He's the sweetest dog and is already best buddies with our 2 year old dd. he has a very obvious past of abuse and neglect though and we believe he was dumped before he found us. He went to his first vet appt yesterday though and he is very healthy despite these things. Although he was very flea infested and skinny. Anyway, I hope to learn a lot from this site, especially about training abused dogs and fleas, I'm new to both of those things!
