Beautiful? Oooh, that dog is SOOO faulty in build, but I know what you are saying...
Rumpley, I'm"pickin' up what your puttin' down".
I understand what you are saying. However, I remain adamant that a SHIPPING crate is NOT an appropriate "kennel" for a dog.
I would MUCH rather see a dog on a nice tether (first choice) or kennel (second choice) or heated garage (3rd choice) then stuck in a shipping crate because he is not housebroken. I DO NOT believe in leaving a dog loose in a backyard, even if it is fenced. No way. And, if some dumb schmuck leaves this dog in his house unattended, who knows what he will come home to - and then the dog gets dumped again. What really, is the difference between being stuck in a garage and being stuck in a crate? Except a helluva lot of room, the ability to potty if you have to, walk around, etc? Neither is perfect, but one is at least not inhumane (in my oft expressed opinion). I just don't get how people who think it is ok to leave a dog cooped up in a shipping crate day after day after day have a problem with tethering or kennels or garages? :wallbang:
Do I think this dog is going to be adopted? No. Not him or a lot of others. But I am willing to try. He has been ok with females that don't challenge him.
He's an OK dog that I am willing to post because so many folks want the "rare blues". Well, here he is in all his blue glory!
