We were so lucky to get her! She's been at the shelter since the beginning of January, but was recently with a foster family to prevent kennel cough. She just got back to the shelter on Friday. I'm pretty sure all of her brothers and sisters have been adopted by now.
She's a shepherd blend, two months old, barely over 3 pounds.
Mr. GG and I have been talking about getting a dog for about 4 months now. We originally went to the shelter at the start of our search, but weren't committed yet. Our biggest issue was breed. I wanted a mutt, shelter dog and DH went from wanting a Pug, to a French Bulldog, to I don't know what.
He's been travelling a lot of the last few weeks for work and so I told him on Wednesday that we were getting a dog on Saturday and he went with it : ).
We went back to the same shelter and saw a lot of great dogs, but really liked these puppies. Mr. GG was really not convinced that we needed a dog NOW, but he's a sucker for a cute dog. I liked pretty much all of the dogs in the litter, but he preferred the runt. I wanted to make sure he was fully in, so we went with his choice and she's perfect : )
We started crate training right away and she is totally comfortable inside the crate which is great. She only let out a couple of yelps the each time she went in during the night Saturday and Sunday, but at 6 on Saturday morning, she was DONE! She yelled like a banshee. Luckily on weekdays, I get up at 6 so I thought it would be fine, but DH called to tell me that she pooped in the corner of our bedroom while I was brushing my teeth. Arg. We've got a long road ahead!
I'm nervous about leaving her today, but Mr. GG works near our house so he'll come let her out around 11:30 and then I'll be home around 3:30. I hope she doesn't think we hate her!! Fingers crossed today goes well!
