I tried to teach him to shake, and I've only gotten him to the point where he *very* slowly lifts his leg up for me. Ha. It's so annoying. But my point is he was totally different in the shelter than he is now. And I know that's not always the case. I think if a dog had been living in a foster home for a bit, and knew more about how he was in a home setting, I'd be more apt to do it.
Webby sez talkin' smack about dogs adopted at 1 yr old is not allowed...
You are being watched. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Oh and did I mention Webby has um like a lot of titles and honors...and therapydogness...he's superduper with Alzheimer's patients...and I just pulled him out of retirement cold after over a year off and threw him in AKC agility and he earned 4 QQs in a row...his first 4 days ever of trialing in Excellent B?

Don't be knockin' the adult rescues because of one bad apple
