My beautiful rescue, with no puppy/young history known was taken from a shelter by a well-meaning man. The man had another, more powerful dog, that over time attacked him because he never learned canine. The last attack being very savage sent the orphane to live with friends after leaving the hospital for his safety. Finding a home was not easy. The orphane had been in at least three homes and a shelter, he was only three. He is now a member of our family. He is still qurkie, however, he his also loving, loyal and most of all happy.
