It's a girl!

No, not my baby! It's too early for that! So who is a girl? Miley, our new shelter rescue dog! She is about a 2 year old basenji - beagle mix. She is housebroken (except for one accident), does not bark, and very gentle. We have been rying to go look at dogs at this shelter for a few weeks but it is always closed, we finally found it open and I took the girls. We had been talking about getting a dog but not too seriously.
We went in there and there were 2 dogs. One was a big, loud, hyper dog - instant no, then there was Sandy (she never answered to that name so we changed it) We got her out to play with her and Renah - little miss scared of nearly every dog known to man- fell in love with her! The dog at one point jumped on her and she laughed! I told them we would talk to daddy. So we went and picked him up from class and took him there. They told us we could always bring the dog back and get the money back if she didn't work for us. We left and talked about it, Wade had another class but told me to go back and get her and we would try her out.
We have had a couple a issues which can be expected. She runs out if a door is open and is really hard to catch. We didn't want to leave her going though the whole house for the couple of hours we weren't there so we put her in the bathoom - she chewed the base boards. We don't have to leave her but about 5 hours a week. Otherwise, I take her and Renah to meet Wade when I have a class and visa versa. She has been really good for Renah with Ainsley being in kindergarten. She is a very sweet dog and I think is fitting in well with us. I am hoping she stays sweet, and good natured! Have a good day!
