    i sure echo all of the above.
    taking on a older than pup dog, you never know what your getting. Coz for the first couple of weeks, you've got odd behaviour they wont normally do, once settled in. Id say its taken 3 months to see Brian's true colours come through. Not all welcome either.
    Its taken me a while to bond. I believe bordeaux's dont salivate quite so much as pups, perhaps that 'lead up' phase would of been good for us. A sudden, gushing slobber monster is hard to adjust to.
    But adjust we have. Perahps slower for me, than if it had been a pup. We got there in the end though.

    I will say, that taking on a teen or adult dog, does come with some prior training. I think its safe to assume, some lessons they have learnt, they should not of. So you have a heap of unlearning to do with the dog.
    That's the set back of taking on someone else's give up.

    Hey Dogman, its great to hear a bit of a update on Chloe. So great that she's settled with her new family. Aren't they fantastic dogs, GSD's?
    I never doubted for a minute, that with you she wouldn't though.
    Nice to see predictions come true

    Hooch is lucky to have you...sounds like he has been through a lot. Yes I'm a chew toy too.


    bernie,

    We've had Chloe the little monster one year now...how time flys. They are great dogs...when they get out of the monster stage if ever.
    It's amazing how quickly they learn what the lounge is for and how to get you to do what they want.

    Chloe will stand by the lounge look at me and cry...why because her ball has gone under the lounge and she wants me to get it...and I do. I haven't been on here for some time as we lost our darling Rottie Opal not long ago to cancer...she was 10 yrs old and we miss her very much.

    I have never had a pup of my own, but i can't believe I could bond more with my rescues than I did.

    Some of the dogs in rescue have just been given up because of circumstances and can be pretty well behaved from the start. A lot of them have had no or not enough training. So you end up with an adult that behaves like a pup.

    I work for a rescue and sometimes get really annoyed when I hear the reasons why people return dogs after a few days. The latest one was 'they chase the cat and scare the neighbour's dog'. And you did what to train them out of that? Bit rich to expect to get a fully trained dog... Our current foster was given up on by her foster carers after not even 2 days too. She was a pain in the bum the first week we had her too, but the poor thing just needed time to adjust.

    With interstate adoptions, you can also offer to get a local rescue to do the yard check and send them a report. It usually is little more than a formality.

    Here's my Chloe now at 20 mths old...as you can see she's not allowed in the house or on the lounge.





    The picture below is Chloe at 8 mths.

    Thank you dhru & Sean, it's twice now in two years that cancer has taken both my girls.

    I will never know why some people dump their dogs...how could these bastards be so cruel.

    Here's a pic of Chloe 7.5 mths in kennels 6 days before we got her.



    Chloe starting her new life a week after we got her.



    Chloe at 12 mths in her forever home.
