We finally decided to take the plunge, and get a dog. I have wanted one for a VERY long time. We were careful in our selection, and this girl is just perfect. Very well behaved, extremely affectionate, and just perfect. We could not be happier with our choice.
She did just have a litter of puppies, fairly recently, in foster. So, she stayed there until her pups were old enough to be weaned, and then went up for adoption, herself. I hope they are all doing well!
