After TC passed away Charlie was very sad and it was just heart breaking he would cry all day long go from room to room looking for TC then he would ask to go outside and look out there. come back in and do it all again. Finally I put an ad on the Internet that I was looking for a Young small dog no bigger than 8 lbs preferably smaller. and my reasons for why and how I lost my TC.I also said I was willing to pay a reasonable adoption fee.I got a call that evening from Taz's previous owner and thats how the adoption started. I did pay a small adoption fee for Taz after all he's right up to date with his shots and he's already neutered so That saves me allot right there. So
I got him from a family not far from where I live. They are very nice people . In the town close to where I live there is a by law that you are only allowed to own 2 Dogs per house hold I guess some one phoned the city and told them that they had 3 dogs. So she needed to find a new home for one of them or the dog would be taken away and they would be fined. Their home was beautiful and she obviously loved the dogs but I don't think they really had time for them.Both husband and wife work and they had a teenage daughter was in high school so the dogs where Crated all day. and when I picked up Taz it was around 7:30-8:00 pm and all 3 dogs where in their crates now to me when the family is home and just watching tv relaxing why are the dogs crated that should be the time the dogs spent time with their humans. anyway. She interveiwed me and deemed me a good home I took Charlie with me because she wanted to make sure Taz and him would be ok together. Of course Charlie is so friendly and well socialized he made friends with Taz right away. She told me that Taz was very shy and scared she asked me if I used a crate for Charlie I said no so she said she didn't think Taz would want to be in a crate if Charlie wasn't so she didn't give me his crate. She cried when I left with him. she care for him but he was never socialized and spent a good majority of his time in a crate. So now this poor little dog that has never been exposed to anything is scared of everything and I do mean everything has come into my life and its my job to turn all this around he's 2 yrs old he will be 3 on April 16th I have all his vet records and registration papers. Anyway thats how I got him.
