I got a 7 week old mixed puppy tonight. The owner told me in no uncertain terms that if this puppy turns out to chase my poultry then I can return it to her. I love this little girl. I am praying all works out well. She is very timid and the previous owner said they were all very timid. We have four Shih-Tzu in the house and the first meeting was quite uneventful to all. Even the cat seems to take to the new puppy. She has pyrenese in her and a lot of other breeds but she is very large. I wanted to keep her on the porch since it is fenced in and she is used to being outside but when I went to take her outside a large possum was on the porch eating the dog food! I disposed of the possum and brought the dog food inside the house till morning. Now I am afraid to put her outside for the night as she is too young to handle "critters" so I think I will keep her in the basement(it is cooler)for the night. We have an open stairway down to the basement but I doubt she can handle stairs as yet. Anyway, here a pic of her. I haven't thought of a name as yet.
