Profile: I LOVE dogs! My husband and I have always rescued and loved neglected and or abused dogs. We we up to six dogs and 2 cats, my husband always felt that we lived in a zoo. During the past two years, we dwindled down to two dogs and two cats. two died of old age, both 16 years+, one of serious terminal illness, and one just moved in with our grown daughter. Resistingly my husband went to a shelter where I took in a little guy who had been dumped adopted and returned. Two challenges, first he is a boy, not ideal as far as Steve sees it. Second he is a puppy, not ideal with me as I haven't dealt with a puppy in in over 17 years! I do work from home and am here to train but I am rusty! Help!

Just got this little guy last Wednesday. Told by the shelter that he is between 9 and 12 weeks old. Also told that he is a Pekingese/chihuahua mix. He weighs 6 pounds, 8 ounces and is such a sweetheart. We can not think of a name for him. We currently have a Sandy and Mandy, cats inherited when my mom passed away, Addie and Sarah Beth both rescues. As you can see we name our animals people names. Can you help? Also, what mix of breeds do you think he is? any tips on puppy parenting, I am really rust on this puppy stuff. Is it too soon to go to dog obedience classes? I never have before and been dog mom for over 32 years. I think I am nervous.View Profile
