Our doggie rescue story…

We did it; we brought a new baby home to join our family. Now, we have been talking about this for some time and went back and forth with the type of doggie to get. You see, we love our min-pin, but since my Father-in-Law has taken the min-pin as his dog, the dog is now fat, spoiled, and lazy. We wanted a dog that would play and do things with the family.

So, last week we had to run to the store to get some supplies and there was this adorable dog sitting in a wired crate looking like she wanted to get out and play. The kids and I said hello and Hubby went into the store. Just when Hubby came out he saw the dog and boy was I shocked when he asked me if I wanted her. WOW!

She had been at the shelter with no back-yard for about three weeks and is unfortunately on the list to be put down, as they just do not have room and all the shelters in San Antonio are overrun with dogs. UGH, my stomach turned and I knew this little girl had to come home with us. We removed her from the crate and took her on a short walk to see how she was with the kids.

Here are the steps we have taken:

1. We changed the information on her micro-chip to ours, in case she should ever get lost again.

2. We purchased her a new pet tag with her name and our phone number.

I think we have everything covered so far… now we have to work on:

1. Her barking at the min-pin… she is great with us and other dogs, but she wants to play with the min-pin so badly that she barks non-stop

2. Her jumping up on us

3. Chewing on shoes and other objects, like my iPad case
