Default Back in the game...

Hi. I'm Steve. Been away from dog ownership for the last 10 years due to financial constraints and living conditions and just recently am able to have one again. Hopefully I'll meet lots of cool people on here with similar interests as myself.

Welcome Steve, great to have you join us and glad to hear you will be able to have a dog again! Looking forward to hearing what kind of dog you decide on and hearing much more about him/her :-)

I'm still looking but I'm really drawn to a 6 week old Heeler/Collie pup that a friend of mine has available. Research tells me I'd have my hands full with her but I welcome the challenge.

It sounds like a lovely mix and puppies are a ton of fun (and yes, work :-)) I hope we get to see pictures soon.

I think the biggest challenge will be keeping her busy. I have 2 cats that wont appreciate being herded too much but I'm sure I'll learn over time, especially with the help of more knowledgeable folks. Just waiting approval from my landlord and then I'll bring her home. I'd never have focused on such a dog if my place wasn't as big as it is and I didn't have such easy access to large open areas to go for walks and play time.

Thank you Techie. It's good to know there's forums like this one. I owned dogs most of my life but it's been almost 10 years since I last had one.

Thank you. There'll be lots of pictures, I am sure of that. Went to the shelter and was happy to see A LOT less animals there than the last time I went in. Saw yet another puppy that caught my eye as soon as I walked in the door. The price is a bit high but I think worth it for the years of enjoyment those dogs will give you.
