Hi, I am a new dog owner and also new to the site. I wanted to introduce myself and my dog and share her story.
Well first her name is Halo and she is a rescue dog. She is about one year old and to be honest I'm not quite sure what kind of dog that she is.
She was found about three weeks ago by a lady in another state right after she had gotten attacked by two very much larger dogs that left her pretty mangled. She is missing a lot of fur, has some stitches and recently had a shunt removed from the largest wound in her neck.
My friend here in town knew the lady that had found her and was trying to help find her a good home. After about a week of searching she had found a girl in our town, so 12 hours later she showed up at her door with the dog in toe. Needless to say the girl did not want the dog and so the search began again. As soon as I had heard her story and saw a few pictures of her I was sold, so this past Friday I brought my little girl home.
Here are a few pictures of her in her new home. If you think you might know what kind of dog she is that would be greatly appreciated.
Yeah, I definitely see some hound... her long body makes me think Daschund, but that could just be the picture. The reddish-brown is very Daschund as well; the black and big paws could be German Shepherd.
