Shelter closed, these guys need help

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

He needs more training as he has really only been worked on the basics in the shelter setting, but he is doing well. His ex-foster mom said he assimilated quickly into her house and got along well with her pack. I can get more pics of him this weekend.


Joe really sounds like our perfect dog. I don't mind a little training, I just need a medium energy pup to match our family/pack lifestyle, and he needs to be good with cats. We're looking for a dog to be my fiance's companion, but he keeps going back and forth between wanting a dog now or waiting until after he gets back from deployment (deploy in a year, gone for a year, so a 2 year wait)... he's driving me batty!! One week he's talking about having a dog as soon as we get the house in 6 weeks, the next he wants to wait till after deployment.

I want to get a dog now so we can think about 2 legged kids after he gets back from deployment :D

He does like Joe a lot though, and told me last night if Joe was in a situation where he needs a home NOW, we have a place for him. Joe of course needs to go wherever the best home is for him, we are 100% forever, but not necessarily 110% ready.

100% forever trumps 110% ready... he needs you. I don't think any of us are ever THAT ready - it's a leap of faith they need us to take. How's that for prodding?

Just bumping because I'm really excited... Mark has been bugging me about Joe so I finally know he's 100% on board, so hopefully things will continue to work out!!!

Everybody cross your fingers for warm weather to come our way!

Sent you an email with all the stuff. Sorry the pics aren't that good. Morgan is really the photographer, I just point and click and hope they turn out. But officially I'm blaming the lighting. lol

Just gotta get landlord approval (she already approved my fiance's brothers pit mix who decided not to live with us, so it shouldn't be an issue) and when we get the OK... Joe should be joining our family this weekend!!

Keep your fingers crossed for us and Joe!!
