Welcome to the forum Jacob. I'm Jenny and I have 7 cats and 2 dogs. Well done for adopting an older dog. My first dog when I got married was a German Shepherd called Sacha. I look forward to seeing pics of Bow and hearing more about you both.

I'm a member of a group that have been trying to close IvyLeafKennels down for years.
Check out their website. Its like Amazon for dogs where you can put them in your basket! Note on their website it states ''We do not claim to be 'jacks-of-all-trades' as some sellers do, though via our National Network of Licensed Breeders we can obtain quality puppies of other breeds for our clients, confident in their quality.''
In other words...if they haven't got what you want they will ship them in from another puppy farmer!
They often advertise in the local press and always state ''Can deliver to those who are unble to travel.'' Really? I wonder why!
Ivyleafkennels also claim all of their pups are vet checked, vaccinated (of course they aren't!) and have been caught falsifying pedigree papers.
Its a disgrace! And shameful that our society (notably the councils who dole out the breeding licences) allow these individuals to operate these canine cruelty camps!!
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.
