Kids could take on the challenge of caring for and/or training a dog. You could use it as a practise run to see if your children are responsible enough for a dog yet.
Action shot! :) Yes this is Jex, she thinks she's a lap dog.Jex (named after her mother Jill and the father Rex) is a spayed Australian Shepherd Blue-Red Healer Border Collie mix. ( These breeds are all herd dogs, children could teach her to herd sheep) She is medium size. She is very sweet and loves to be around people she loves, she is shy of strangers and barks but we have never know her to bite. She rolls on the ground when you pet her and is kinda funny. She also does that when she is scared which I find amusing. :) She's grown up around cats and is friendly with them. She is extremely smart too. She knows how to climb ladders, I have a picture of the stunt but it's on my phone and I can't get it onto the computer.
licking his chops...
Isn't he sweet?
A HOME HAS BEEN FOUND FOR REMUS!
Thank you all who considered taking him. :)
I named him after Uncle Remus in the Song of the South. But Mom insists he was named after the two brothers who were in charge of building Rome, Romulus and Remus. One of them was in charge of the walls and the other was in charge of building the inside, they got into a fight and Romulus killed Remus. That's why we have Rome and not Reme.
Even if you don't want the dogs please tell everybody you know, get the word out please!
