We got our dog,Shortie,from my sisters friend who could not keep her because she sheds too much and her partner was allergic to the hair. So since we dog-sat her a few times she already knew us and my brother and I have always wanted a dog. When Shortie first came to stay with us she was sad and missed her previous owner but know it is like she has know us her whole life and she fits right in. Shortie is 7 years old and has white fur with some brown spots,has an under bite and is a mix but we are not sure what. She is now used to the ways of our house and loves being here.
