Hello! My name's Chong and I live in Hawaii. Last year in May I bought(more like rescued) my pup. His name is Jack Daniels Tennessee, after the whiskey :D and he is a German Shephard/Australian Heeler mix. The day we went to go see him as a baby he was absolutely horrible looking. He was 7 weeks old, had no vaccinations, was COVERED head to toe in ticks and fleas and the woman lied about deworming him. We quickly paid her the 20$, brought him home and he whined and howled because of the enormous amount of fleas and ticks on him. Here in Hawaii Parvo is the most common killer of puppies so we immediately started on his Parvo vaccs. He went through 4 shots and had to be kept indoors for the first couple months of his life. The first day we had him he was pooping out tapeworms and gut worms so we quickly took him to the vet and treated them.

He is almost a year old now and is tick, flea, worm and Parvo free! He's the sweetest and most loving dog I've ever met. He's my boy :]
Wish I could post a picture of him.
Thanks for letting me join.

That's so sad. :-( I had a rescue Doberman and know how the bond feels when you've rescued them from a terrible place and they've rescued your heart. :)

You have one cute pooch!
