After Matt & I moved in together, Sadie, Matt's dog, was having a hard time adjusting to being the only dog, and has been chewing up the house, i.e. the floorboards, blinds, etc in response to her separation anxiety. So one day after work Matt & I ventured to the Maricopa County Animal Control center in Mesa and picked out a little buddy for Sadie.
Overall, Buster has been a very good dog, he listens well, responds to commands, is good on a leash and friendly. However, being only 7 months old, he chews EVERYTHING. I have lost DVD covers, a garden hose, leather work gloves, etc. So now the dogs are outside dogs whenever we are not home, but still welcome parts of our little family.
