I adopted my dog, Hansel, from a rescue. Upon returning home that evening all the questions I asked about him at the shelter continued to pop up in my head.
How big will he get?? The woman told me no bigger than 40#s. I thought to myself, I can handle that. Hansel now weighs 70#s.
Why was he at the rescue, who could not want this cute little puppy??? He was the first to be adopted from a litter of nine , but had to be returned because the child in the family became allergic to him.
Why was he named Hansel?? Should I change his name?? His twin was named Gretel. Some of the other puppies were named Bonnie and Clyde, & Jack and Jill. I thought I love the name and it fits him perfectly. ” I am not changing it”!!!
Does he get along with other dogs? “Of Course” the woman told me. ” He lives on a farm and runs with other dogs all day”. I soon found out how much fun he has when he plays with other dogs.
Is he house trained?? He goes right to the door and rings a bell to go out.
Does he get along with kids? He loves kids, he eagerly want to greet them.
Within hours after returning home with him. I knew he was a “Keeper”.
