Hi there. I just joined the forum after reading so many helpful threads. I recently adopted a shelter dog who was brought up to NYC from a kill shelter in TN. He's a fox terrier/lab mix, which means all teeth all the time, and I need a lot of help with that. I'm also a first-time dog owner! Jake is very sweet and smart, though, and many other parts of our training are going beautifully. He's housetrained at just under four months. Woot!! Anyway, very glad to be here. Thanks so much.
