Squeaky Toys, treats, being loved and snuggled
Not being the center of attention, being left behind when Deogee gets to go somewhere, and having to get up and come to you when he doesn't want to.
Anything with a rope on it and squeaky toys
Nutro, treats, cheese
Tank was our foster pup but we fell in love with him and made him our baby!! Thanks to Jennifer and Vom Blue Rottweiler and Large Breed Rescue!!!! http://vombluerottrescue.petfinder .org
Tank was found as a stray and then picked up and taken to the shelter where he sat in a small cage for about a month and a half. Now he is here with us and has a condition called Rickets (Rickets is a disease of young, growing animals. The most common causes are dietary insufficiencies of phosphorus or vitamin D. Calcium deficiencies can also cause rickets, and while this rarely occurs naturally, poor balanced diets that are deficient in calcium have been said to cause the disease. As in most diets causing osteodystrophies, the abnormal calcium:phosphorus ratio is most likely the cause. ), but we have him on a suppliment since he has gotten here and you wouldn't even know it's the same dog. He went from crawling across the floor and collapsing after only a few seconds of walking to running and jumping around the house in only a few days. He is doing wonderful!! We adopted him ourselves on the 18th and this will be his forever home.

Life started out bad, I don't remember much of it but I know it wasn't good. Somehow I had ended up on the streets and was picked up by Animal Control. I sat in the shelter on a hard floor for what seemed to be forever, I was cold and my body hurt. I was really weak and couldn't hold myself up to even look at people when they walked by my kennl. One day a nice lady came and got me, she took me to her house and gave me a soft warm place to sleep and lots of food, I also got to make friends with her dogs. I met a girl named Relic, she looked like me and was very pretty, we still keep in contact and are pals here on Dogster.
Shortly after that I went on a long car ride to another ladies house, she had a dog that looks like me to but he is a lot older then me and didn't want to play. I got to have treats and play with toys there. A couple hours after I got there some other people came and were petting and talking to me. The lady said they were going to be my foster parents until I found a new home.
So now I was in the car again and we were going someplace else, I was getting tired of being in the car and was starting to get a tummy ache. We went to someplace called Petsmart (I now know this as the coolest store ever) we went inside and I got to pick out a new collar, leash, rawhides and a few squeeky toys (those are my favorite). Then we headed to my new foster home. The next day I had to get back in the car and go to someplace called the vet, he is a very nice guy and gave me treats while he looked at me. He told my foster parents that the reason I was having a hard time moving around was because of "Rickets", I had heard my foster parents and the other lady talking about that but didn't know what it was. So we went back to Petsmart and got some really tasty food that was just for me and some supplements (what ever that means, I just know they taste like treats).
I lived with my foster parents for awhile and I was quickly getting stronger and was able to go outside and play with all the other foster pups and Deogee. One day my foster parents sat me down and told me that they were going to adopt me and I would get to live with them for the rest of my life!!! I was very happy to hear this, I really like it here and wouldn't want to be anyplace else!!!
