Tell us about yourself: Accidentally adopting a Dutch Shepherd when I had no idea about the breed led me to research and act on all of his needs. This site was a key component to making things right for Radar, so when the original owner was calling it quits, I stepped in to keep the site running.

I'm a new human companion to Laika, a 7-year-old Dutch Shepherd rescue. She is my first dog ever. This image explains a lot. I wish I had seen it when Laika first joined us.

Been on this site for 10 minutes, and already I'm learning important lessons. I'm glad to be here, and glad the site is here.

Do you have any history on her?

I think the chart is good, but just remember every dog is different. Casper (not DS) allowed me to rub his belly for the first time last night, after being with us for a year. He had been returned to the shelter 2 and it was obvious he was kept in a small kennel 24/7. He took way longer to go through the stages.

What is Laika like?
