I'm so glad to hear. And yes, I believe pictures are a requirement.

Yeah, I found out with one of my pups that too much of certain doggie treats can cause stomach upset. Stress could be a factor, too. Best of luck with her...
I picked some up at Petsmart when I signed her over to me. Only bought 10 pack as the rest were XL and in 50 or 150 count. I was hopeful that it was just her being unsure what to do. But with this spilling of poo I am almost out.
The training her outside to use them is an AWESOME idea! I was going to bring out one she pee'd on and use to mark spot where to go, but if she can pee on it outside then bonus. I think that will work. Cheers!

And why no pictures? She sounds perfect for you I am glad you found her.

Ha! You got the first pic!
And I know, I should have told you sooner. Been overwhelmed with this decision, my friend was here..then her (the dog) peeing everywhere, then pooing everywhere, No food in me for 24 hrs. etc. etc.

So, so happy for you both!!

Pics to come soon! hopefully later this eve.
As for name (here current is Frosty, she came up from the states with that and seems to know it) my friend and I were joking about how to use Louisiana or something southern...NO to Belle BTW, lol
So we broke down to Louise then Anna...As we were talking she told me of her Aunt Louise and how they called her Wheezie...Maybe? IDK.
I had applied for a whippet x last month, and was declined, but I had come up with Ziggy for her, so maybe that.
Have to see what suits her as we go.


Open to suggestions!

YAY!!!!! I'm so happy for you. I know you're in for a lot of work putting her back together, but she's very lucky to have you.

I have my own Louisiana Little in my personal pack, Fiona. I have a soft spot for them. Mine came to me as a 6 mo. old, shut down and paralyzed with fear after the shelter euthanized her mother in front of her. Fiona had to watched her mama die at the shelter, but the euthanasia staff relented when it was the pup's turn because she was so young. They gave her one more day, having already traumatized her. Someone called me, and I got her out. She would splay on her tummy on the sidewalk at the bottom of the driveway, too scared to walk on leash. She would quake in fear going anywhere new. It was a long road, but she's a different dog now -- friendly and happy....and she's my Rehabilitator in Chief with foster dogs. She has an uncanny ability to read what my foster dogs need. She is the one who can reach them and teach them to trust when nothing else works. There are a lot of dogs who became adoptable because of her. She was a gift from Upstairs to help, and I'm so grateful. I think your Little will bring you some special gift too!

Name and pictures??? Oops, just saw the name is still a work in progress. Can't wait for you to post pictures!

I'm beyond thrilled that you chose her. You got this--all of it.

Maybe she was an outside dog to begin with? I know Robyn was really young when I got her, but she had lived outside so she peed in the house and laid down outside. You will probably have start from scratch with potty training line she is a puppy. No UTI?

Robyn- GSD CGC, TC, Midnite-GSD CGC,TC, Brennan-Golden Retriever CGC, Batman-Husky/Greyhound , Apollo-GSD

Thanks Carm, but no such luck...Vet app today. I got a sick doggie, but she is doing very well otherwise.

Aww, thanks, I know you can appreciate adopting with all you have done with your pack, the fostering strays and rehoming, saving doves, the kitties...


No UTI that I can tell, she doesn't pee often. No straining of frequent dribbles of false squats. Will not pee outside at all. She does (now), start showing me time to go poop though...but she has been very sick (no vomiting, just diarrhea), so I am blowing through pee pads!


IDK if she was outside, or locked in a room or garage, she is afraid of the door closing on her, so as we come in we have to walk way in and then I can go back and close. Even closing it behind as we are going onto deck she looks at it fearful...but last night got a little better.


She does not want to meet people or dogs. She stands back tail tucked, but doesn't cower.

With her coat looking so very shepherd-y, it's very hard to make an educated guess! You said she was about 30 lbs? She looks MUCH bigger in that last shot!
