Hi all, we have just had a dog bought for us by my daughters Dash is a lovely jrt/sheltie his owner gave him away because they have children and where never in to look after him. He is 11 months old my wife and I are in our 50s and have never had a dog before . Dash is a quiet dog plays with his toys and still mouths you with his teeth.He likes his walks lead only has he ran off and would not come back (but I caught him in the end phew ! ) I have never known such a quiet dog . He goes into the garden for a wee when we tell him but when we get up in the morning he has done number 2 on the carpet , we don't get annoyed and clean it up . He never lets us know i.e barking are crying he just does it by the back door we thought we would try puppy pads but he just rips them up . Can anyone help ?
