Response to Walk away (Original post)

Fri Jan 6, 2012, 06:26 PM

10. All my animals are rescues.

I have had a couple of really nice pure breeds as well as some wonderful mutts. I usually adopt adult dogs. The benefit of this is they are usually house trained and I get to see their real, adult temperament and energy level and can make a better decision about how the dog will fit into our lifestyle.

I posted a picture in this forum of my newest guy Ziggy recently. The trainer who works with us said that she had seen dogs that people paid 2k+ for that were not as nice as my rescue dog. He was skinny and neglected looking at first, but he is filling out nicely, is super smart and great with my kids and other animals. Could not ask for a nicer dog.
