LIttle Abby

This is all about a puppy named Abby. She came to live here by accident - but we can't remember life without her. Abby is 16 weeks old - her birthday is February 14. She has a dog sister and a dog brother. She also has 6 cat brothers and sisters.

We're not exactly sure what kind of dog Abby is, but we suspect mostly boxer. Her original owners adopted her from the pound - I think because they thought she looked like a pit bull. After about a month, they decided they no longer wanted to care for her. So she came to live with us. She was very thin and timid when she first moved in. She had been eating cheap adult dog food for the first couple months of her life. She has now gained almost 4 pounds in 3 weeks. She is a happy puppy. She will be attending basic obedience in July, and has aspirations to be a Canine Good Citizen. She would like to be a therapy dog some day.

Her favorite things to do are watch Animal Planet (anything with dogs), play with noisy toys, annoy her brothers and sisters, chase flies and meet new people. She also loves to "work it" for the camera. She loves learning new things and getting treats. She sleeps all night (with her mom) and is mostly house trained. She makes friends everywhere she goes. We're just sorry that our city doesn't have a dog park of any kind.
