Good for you, McJag, and all of you adopting shelter babies! I'm a member of my local humane society and volunteer for the shelter, and they are over run with people dropping off pets. It's the economy and unwanted Christmas presents that's bringing them in so fast. They're usually great animals that just need a wonderful home!
I'm so glad you found a shelter baby you're compatable with, McJag! I hope he's healthy as a horse and everything goes perfectly. Regardless, thank you for trying to adopt a shelter dog - they desperately need the love and home. Please keep us updated!
