Arrival Story:
shiloh is also a pet store dog, like Radley. However she is a pretty healthy little girl for a puppymill dog, only has urinary issues. Shiloh was my second dog, as an adult, I went into a pet store with Radley to get him treats and left with little Shiloh.

Shiloh was a discount puppy at a pet store, she was 4 months old and no one wanted her. Once I got her home I figured out why! Shiloh was a horrible puppy! I lived at home during her puppyhood and the parents agreed that I could have her... until she started eating everything. My mom used to feel crating a dog while you were gone was mean, until Shiloh came along. Shiloh ate rugs, shoes, couches, beds, money, anything! My mom had had it, and she's an animal lover, never gets rid of dogs, takes great care of them. But she said Shiloh had to go, as heartbroken as I was I had to agree since I was living in her house. I had found a great lady with two other rat terriers who was willing to take Shiloh in and deal with her destructive behavior( we had tried everything). Then when plans were almost finalized for shilohs departure my step dad stepped in and said that he wouldn't let me get rid of her. I was thrilled! I loved Shiloh dearly even though she was horrible. So Shiloh got to stay and eventually grew out of her destructive stage at about 2. And her behavior wasn't for lack of training or exercise, we walked miles everyday, she knew obedience, but as soon as your back was turned for even 2 minutes she was at it! Chewing and eating anything she could find. I couldn't get a glass of water without her finding some kind of trouble. Anyway Shiloh is calm now, never chews anything and is a great girl. After 2 years of hell she became a model citizen. She's sweet, well mannered, cuddly, clingy, and mellow. She has taught me patience and dedication. Because without either of those I would have done like my mom wanted and gotten rid of her.
