Dover the dog

This is a photo of my new sheltie dog, Dover. The picture was taken when he was 4 or 5 months old. He's about 6 months old now (born 2/12/08). He is a rescue dog. Was a puppy mill graduate, and placed in a pet store. He was not selling, possibly due to "puppy head shakes" (idiopathic head tremors -- meaning they don't know what causes it). The shelty rescue lady came by just as the store was planning to euthanize him as unsalable. He is a lovely little dog, wants to do what is right. Lots of energy, which is a bit of shock after our poor older dog died last September. That dog, Beau, was really sick with kidney disease the last 5 years of his 11 year life. Wish us all luck!
