Yeah, I always end up w/ the dogs nobody else wanted, Roo being a disobedient furry black dog, and Mocha being pit mix. When I met her, it became my life's purpose to adopt her so I could be sure nothing bad ever happened to her. Around here, that's a concern. If you watch Dogtown, then you know what I mean. (but sorry, don't watch any TV anymore)
Funny how when I was in the process of the adoption, I whined to myself that I never end up w/ the 'cute' dogs. I didn't adopt her for her looks, I thought she was a plain, drab, brown dog. But NOW EVERBODY who meets her compliments on how beautiful she is. Her coat is a sheen and her muscles bulge. Her eyes will melt you, too. (see photo) VIEW IMAGE
My dogs love everybody! They both scramble for attention, me me me!! I would hope they would turn on someone attacking me, but I'm afraid that if someone broke in here, they would think it was to pet them! Excellent watchdogs, tho, w/ very fierce barks.
Told you not to get me started on dogs.....
