Just wanted to share our latest rescues. We got Indy back in January. He is really laid back easy going dog. Great with other animals or kids but has seperation anxiety. Tried everything suggested online and have a had little luck. We decided to double down and get him a companion to see if that would help. Thought it would be best if we became a dog foster home so if the new dog didn't help Indy we would still find them a good home. If the new dog did help then they'd already have a home.

Since getting Ana, in mid May, Indy has already started showing signs of breaking his anxiety. He's also acting more dog like and playing with toys or his new sister.

Ana is from Korea and is pretty skittish but is extremely food motivated. Since joining our home she enjoys squeaky toys and licking Indy's face.

So this is Indy and Ana. There are enough film buffs to get that name combo

@Denovi Great story and those dogs look very well cared for! About to get a dog ourselves and my 4 year old announced that he wants 2 little dogs and 1 big dog. I told him that's a lot of dogs and he replied "100 is a lot of dogs - I only want 3..." :)

Vorpel - 2 dogs isnt much more work than 1. I think 3 would be a bit more tricky on walks and food supervision. But then again I dont have any kids to look after either, so maybe 1 would be enough.

What breeds are you thinking about?

Just got this little guy this past weekend. 4 month old Pointer/lab mix, named Rufus

LOL - it was just funny to hear him reason that 3 isn't a lot, just 100 dogs is a lot!

We are thinking of getting 2 dogs as my wife and I both work so they can keep each other company. So far French Bulldogs and Boston Terriers are at the top of our list. We've been researching breeds to see what will be compatible with our life style.

Hopefully we'll get them sometime this summer.

Thanks!

Both very playful breeds. They'd be great with kids.

Good luck

Thought I'd share some better photos I took of our new pup! He's bigger now, almost 50 lbs.

SOOOOOOO we decided to adopt another dog, a 3 year old Bluetick coonhound. We brought him home yesterday and we are already questioning the decision. :shock: Both of his ears had chunks taken out at some point, he's got an old injury to his tail, ear infections, and hookworm, which we found out about today. UGH....

His smell drive is so crazy, way more than we anticipated. He keeps climbing onto couches (not a big deal) THEN onto the tables next to them, which is a big deal. He goes after any and all food in just a crazy way, not aggresive, or in a mean way, just wants it ALL! He ate half a hard chew bone in like 5 minutes.

But we also know it's early, and he's had a hard life so we are hoping he'll calm down and learn the rules. He is a big sweetheart though when he calms down, just leans in and wants love!

Ha-ha! First time. I made homemade dog treats for my sister's poochies, but she can't pick them up until tomorrow. I don't have a dog, so I gave my neighbor a sample bag and she came back with a great review from her pooch...he loved 'em. Yay!

I thought this would be a fun way to package small sample bags. :lol:

Peanut Butter/Bacon flavor.

I just love this.

Here's our new addition to the family, Brutus. He's a 3/4 year old Bluetick Coonhound. We had a rocky start, but he's settling into the family routine nicely.
