So I Heather and am new to this forum My family has always had dogs, but I've never had a dog who was all mine. My fiance and I had been planning to get a dog after we got married, but he broke up with me yesterday. The only thing I could think of when he did that was to get a dog. I didn't want to rush into things, so I researchd the shelters, etc. and headed out today. I didn't think I'd get to take one home, but I got to! I filled out the paperwork and played with him while they approved it. He's a four year old shelter dog who has pretty much been there for most of his life. They THINK he's a sharpei/lab/collie/something(s) else, but I don't care because he is the sweetest thing ever, and is integrating very well into our house (we have a cat and dog). I'm so excited and I already have a friend. He falls asleep on my leg contantly! We went on a two mile walk with my lab tonight and he's pooped but so happy! Just wanted to introduce myself and Roscoe!
