OMG, I'm so excited right now. On Monday night I just happened to go online to our local paper and clicked on the 'absolutely free' section.
Oops, a little history first...I have grown up with dogs and we lost our beautiful German Shepherd almost 2 yrs ago. And within the last few months I've been getting the itch for another dog. We currently have 1 dog and 2 cats. They are our lives (no children) and we also have been renting the Cesar Milan dvd's and got his book, hubby is currently reading it now. So needless to say we know what we've been doing wrong all these years.
But at least now we can correct it.
Our Bailey is not really dog friendly, but her and our Duke were best bud's. So I know with time she'll adjust. Plus I don't work so I'll be home to referee them.
Okay, back to my story, I have in the past looked at this section of the newspaper and have seen a couple of females, but since our Bailey is a female we really wanted a male and lo and behold there was a male GSD listed! I couldn't believe it. Then I thought wow, my birthday is tomorrow wouldn't this be just perfect. Well he didn't call me back......until this afternoon. So I just came from seeing him and he's just beautiful. He looks healthy and happy, but he's kept in a kennel in the backyard and these people own a restaurant and they can't give him the attention he needs. He's 1 1/2 years old, just a pup. I want to bring him home now, but we need to have a transition period and get him his own dog bed.
My question(s) are this, what else should I ask this family about him? I've never gotten a dog from the newspaper before and I'm kinda stuck on what else to ask. I asked about his health, his poop, (I know, but he could have diarrhea!), his papers (they got him from the fricken' mall)
He seems perfectly healthy on the outside, coat is nice, will have to check his eyes though...
Any doggy help, please....
