new puppy
« on: August 28 2023, 08:11:33 AM »
The house was too quiet. We brought this little ball of fluff home from central Ohio this weekend.
His name is Tate and he is a 9-week-old Shetland Sheepdog.
He rode 6 hours home without any accidents or crying. He's slept through the night the last 2 nights he's been home.
So far one of the most chill puppies I've ever been around.
We did check out Summit Racing while we were in the area - I spent an hour in the clearance section digging through all the cool stuff.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

His mom was sable and his dad was a blue Merle - itíll be interesting to see his markings when he matures. Heís sable but has a couple bands that are Merle right now. His mom was 28lbs and his dad was smaller. He will be an average size sheltie.
Our hearts and full and we feel blessed to have this little guy in our life. I didnít realize how much enjoyment I get seeing my boys with the pup. They are at the perfect ages to bond with the puppy.

He looks like he will have beautiful markings.  Seems to be starting off with a great temperament.

Sorry to hear that, Dan. A dog is the best company I have ever had.  I am rapidly nearing the same decision.

I am with you 100%.  Dogs are a lot smarter than 90% of the human population

Our last dog was a GSD. She was my Grandfather's dog for the first 10 years of her life. She came to live with us after my Grandfather passed. We were blessed with her presence for 5 more years. Such a wonderful dog! It was a struggle without her.

About 7 to 8 months later, I visited the local shelter & brought home an Aussie mix.

Absolutely the best!

My son has two GSD's.  I think both of them were rescues.  His first one was not.  I have never seen dogs that are so devoted to kids.

That Aussie mix might give you all a race when it comes to the brains department  :cheers:  She is a beautiful dog :cheers:
