Who said 2 is better than 1 and 4 is better than 3 etc?
Our 2nd GSP will be joining our family this weekend. She is currently in a shelter and her time was running out. As of Saturday, she will have plenty of time. On the couch, in bed, and chasing the ducks on the river bank. She will have a real home. Training will be in order because we don't believe she has ever lived in a house before. She is about 2 and was found in a rural area with a pup they assumed was hers.
Here's her picture.
Wish us all luck!
Just in case.......there is another male large GSP in this same shelter. You never know who else might be interested!
Taking 2 at once would be too much for me!
Tomorrow's the day. We leave at 0 dark thirty for the 6 hour drive to pick up our new little girl. Everyone at work is saying we will come home with the big male too. I just have no business at a shelter. I'll just want to fill up the truck with as many pups as possible.
We made it back and we named our new little one Lola. She hasn't stood still long enough to take pictures yet. She is a bundle of energy. And every bit as cute as her picture. Very feminine and petite next to Spot. It's like romper room at my house and we are waiting for them to settle down. I didn't know Spot was capable of being this active.
I don't think she has had any training at all and we are working on house breaking. She isn't crate trained but she is learning. So far, I have been taking them out to potty and then leaving them loose in the house for a couple hours. Then back in the crate for an hour or so and out to potty again.
She loves outside and has been watching the geese, ducks, and swans intently. She is interested in us but Spot won't leave her alone for a minute. I was making coffee and Spot was sitting by the fridge waiting for treats. I gave them both a carrot. At first she spit it out.....YUCK! And then she saw Spot eating his and decided it wasn't so bad after all.
They are both drinking but no one is interested in dog food. I am feeding them in their crates to avoid problems, at least at first. So far they are sharing toys and rawhide bones etc just fine. She loves treats and has already done her first sit.
The other GSP at the shelter is a clydesdale. And I'm sure he isn't done growing either. The markings and the head shape are pure GSP but the paws scream Great Dane to me. He has got to be over 100lbs and he is incredibly sweet. We sponsored him for 4 months so he will have a better chance of being adopted. At least we bought him some time.
