When I decided I could Finally get a dog I went to the Dekalb Shelter. I know they try, but it's a terriable place for any animal. Snickers was there for 3 months. the story I got was that he was in a cage pretty much all the time, then he was punished for 'going ' in the house. I assume he nipped at the daughter 'cause they said no small kids. The next day when I went to pick him up he jump so high, he knew I was there for him. The first thing we had to do was find a new name. I pick out about 5 names and when I said "Calvin" his ears perked up, so that was that, Calvin it is. He's great with kids of all ages. Just goes to show you that you have to take whatever they tell you at a shelter with a grain of salt. Had they not said that he would have been adopted sooner, but I'm so glad he was there for me,'cause he's a Great dog.
