    Dog Training Forum
    I'll admit I haven't spent the time to train him correctly. He is 2 and I found him when he was about 6 weeks to 8 weeks old abandon in my local dog park.

    We just adopted a dog, Inky, who has already become a fast and happy member of our family. She's a Jack Russell/Heeler cross (as near as we can tell), and she's very affectionate and sweet.
