I swore off having another dog in the home. I told myself that I couldn't put Landon through another heartbreak, but in reality I was the one that didn't want to get attached to another dog only to eventually lose it. Landon has been asking for a dog for quite some time now. Kevin and I have been talking about getting him a dog, but always had a reason as to why it wasn't the right time. I came across a dog on an adoptable pet website and the next morning we called the shelter to see if he was still available. To our surprise he was and we made the drive to go get him.
He's a two year old, four legged terrier mix terror. He has endless energy and escapes from every fence and open door he comes across. He's non stop and definitely nothing like our Tinkerbell was. We're not used to having such a misbehaved dog. He's a lot of work, but is growing on us. He's playful and much larger than Tinkerbell (which were the two requirements I had for Landon's new dog). Petey is a very friendly dog, but has a nipping and scratching problem when he's playing. It makes playing with him very difficult and Landon is scared of him at times due to that. Hopefully with some much needed training and love he'll become a great family dog.
