As many of you know we adopted our second dog 5 months ago. Durke Durka Durka Nowitsky was a 3-month-old Australian Shepherd puppy that just looked like the most innocently pathetic puppy ever. He was in a kennel just staring up at me wanting to be loved but staying ever so calm.
Well once we got him out of that prison and got him home that calm facade faded quickly. He became our rambunctious, chewing, sweetheart of a dog. Durke is now 8 months old and though very obedient he is still incredibly wired and hyper. We take Durke to the dog park fairly often but he still has endless amounts of energy. So much so that we started to consider adopting a third dog.
We looked at quite a few dogs before coming upon this sweet Australian Cattle dog. He was quietly wagging his tail in excitement begging for our attention. We walked over to greet him and give him some love and as soon as I got a closer look at those gorgeous eyes I was sold. He was so sweet and loving and just wanted to be loved.
After a ridiculous amount of hassle in the adoption process and a meet and greet later, we knew he was our dog. Since bringing him home to meet the rest of the gang, he has solidified our feelings in knowing that he was the right dog for us. We gave him the name Django and him and Durke have been best play fighting friends since.
We strongly believe in pet adoption versus buying dogs and puppies. With so many people rehoming pets these days, it is the only choice that makes sense to us. We are content with our fur family currently but in the future, we would love to be able to adopt a German Shepard.
Do you have any fur babies in your family? What kind of dog are they? How many do you have?
