    Dude! Don't lure me in with a puppy post and then only have one tiny picture, and on top of that it's sideways?!?!?!

    Not cool dude, not cool :crying:

    She's super cute though.

    I'd name her Margie.

    Congratulations! And good job on giving a loving animal a home.
    We adopted a runaway puppy two weeks ago from the Idaho Humane Society. She looks like a big-ear rat! A purebred Chihuahua. Skinny thing from running the mean streets of Boise with nothing to eat or drink. We're fattening her up: almost 5 pounds now!

    A good dog owner is something the world needs more of.

    12 weeks... Kind of old but there is still a chance. Threat that dog like your child. Spend every waking moment with it and it may still become 100% loyal, obedient four-legged &#8220;person&#8221; who just happened to be a dog.
    If you do not you will get a dog which will, eventually, learn to obey you but will never be your friend.

    The dog appears to me to be more than 12 weeks old. More like 20 weeks. It also looks like a Corgi mix. The dwarfism is readily apparent. You don't get that with Border Collies or Labs. There's no lab in there. You mix a Lab with anything and you get a black dog. Of course, there is the chance that there is no pedigree in this pooch for 50 generations.....or more.
    Bless you for adopting a rescue dog. :thumbsup:

    Congrats on the new pup, she is a cutey!
    I have a now 5 year old border collie / black lab mix that I picked up from a rescue when she was 8 weeks old. Great dog, great personality, and does not run. She wants to be by my side whenever we are outside. She prefers the company of humans more then dogs, but gets along with everyone. One word of warning, they have a ton of energy. They need to get out a play alot! They also love to do things that require them to think, if you want to have a frisbee dog you made a great choice, training for tricks is also something that they love to do. Just remember, a tired dog is a good dog ;)
