His name is Chomper (I didn't name him, LOL) and his petfinder page is here: http://www.petfinder.com/pet.cgi?action=2&pet=5036325. The new description I wrote for him hasn't made it onto the page yet. They are calling him a beagle mix, which is possible. I used to think his head looks like a small rottweiler, but now I am almost thinking aussie. Anyone else have an opinion? His coat is *exactly* like Nala's! He's a good boy so far! I can't believe they haven't neutered him yet, though, so I made an appointment for him but they can't get to him until next Monday. I was worried about him being crated this morning, but I went home at lunch and he was fine. I think I heard him start to bark as I left after lunch, but of course there was nothing I could do at that point. I hope he stays calm and doesn't shred his blankets for fun! He seems to be okay crated as long as my dogs are in the room, at least so far. I don't understand boy dogs. With a girl dog, you take her outside and she squats and pees. Then you can be fairly sure she is empty, although they always seem to manage to come up with a little more if a good spot needs annointing. But a boy dog. You take him out and he does a little squirt here and a little squirt there....how the heck do you know when he's empty and therefore safe to bring back inside?! Silly boys. Emma May got adopted on Saturday. She didn't go to the family that I liked the best, though, so I am worried about her. I guess they are having housetraining issues with her. Funny, because she never had even one accident in the house in the week I had her. She didn't even start to squat. I *told* them she needs to be watched and let out frequently. Anyway. I was almost hoping they would give her back and the other family could have her, but it seems they are working it out. I hope she's happy! I cried when she left. :cry: Little Chomper has been in the shelter for most of the summer, it seems. I guess he was there in June and then mysteriously disappeared and was brought back as a stray in July. Weird. The shelter is full and his time was up. He would have been put down today if I hadn't taken him home. He's a very happy guy - I'm glad he'll get his chance at a good home now!
