Meet Mya

A few posts ago, I mentioned that I had seen a sweet little puppy face on Petfinder.com ...WELL, turns out we were able to adopt that face(and the puppy attatched to it)! We brought her home Saturday, and she's been a wonderful addition to our family of furballs!We got Mya through an animal rescue organization. She was a stray who was picked up and taken to a local shelter. She was adopted but was returned to the shelter when the first owner couldn't get her potty trained. Later, she was placed on petfinder.com by the rescue orginization and we were lucky enough to find her.She's one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. She LOVES to play but is pretty laid back most of the time. The four cats aren't thrilled that she's living with us, but everyone seems to be slowly adjusting to the new addition. Potty training is going slowly...I'm guessing w/her background, she never had much structure or practice w/it. She's about 6 months old, so still a pup, and I believe she'll get it eventually. She's smart too! She's already pretty good w/sit and we're working on down. Probably should have started with "come" and "stay", huh.

Ah how sweet the dog is so cute. I love dogs they are my favorite house pet. I currently have 3 chihuahuas but really want a black lab

How cute she is! Bless you for chosing rescue. It seems rescued dogs know how lucky they are. On the potty training, if it continues to be a problem, I'd have the vet check her out. Sometimes it is an infection.

What a pretty girl! And how wonderful that you could give her her second chance. I think rescue animals are some of the best.
