No incessant whining, yapping, snapping and possessiveness. Duncan prefers the company of dogs over the company of humans. In less than 24 hours, he is accustomed to the crate, has learned to pee and poop outdoors (his current belly band is "just in case...") -- and, he "sits" on command! Seriously. It took CL 5 minutes to teach Duncan how to sit. This dude is almost as intelligent as moi.
I was found as a stray in Taiwan, in the company of 2 other dogs, with a wire band wrapped around my neck. I was by far the skinniest among the 3, because I was always the last one to eat whenever we could find food. A Canadian family took me in and worked with the Animal Rescue Team TAIWAN (http://www.savedogs.org/english/) to sponsor my travel to the United States. I was fostered by Judy, a wonderful lady who showed me kindness and helped with my shyness. I was later adopted by crazy lady Karen. She helps me make friends, and I am learning to trust again.
