Hello. My name is Avelyn and I'm 16 years old. I am going to be 17 this 28th September. I have a female dog and her name is Ebony. She is a Bearded Collie from what many dog owners have said. I adopted Ebony at around the first week of December 2008. Ebony is a black dog except for her chest is white. The owner of the shelter said Ebony was a terrier mix well they were wrong. The owner of the shelter also said they found this dog in front of the shelter.
I decided to adopt Ebony because she was barking really loudly and she was the only one in her cage while the other dogs had some other friends in their cage. Well, from what I saw is that Ebony was rather lonely than happy at the shelter. When I got her home, I cleaned her and gave her some food and water. Until now, she is really happy, energetic and adorable! She wasn't that barking dog at the shelter anymore. Now, she's a dog that loves to be by my side.
But the only thing is that she is sometimes aggressive and snaps at people. She is aggressive and snaps at me too but not as much as the others. I've taught Ebony how to sit, stay, paw, stand up (but for a few seconds only) and shake hands.
It would be nice if I could get to know you and your dogs as well! Sorry for long post.
I do not get what you mean?? My cousin asked me to search in Google for pet forums because I have been asking many questions about my dog that she could not answer. I have joined about 2 others before coming here because one pet forum(1 week ago), most of the people keep saying "non-helpful" things. The other pet forum(1 and a half months ago) which was pretty good but I forgotten the link because my computer CPU spoilt and everything was lost. Now I found this one to see if my questions would be answered after weeks but I have forgotten some questions.
To explain what LPN means is ... you and another poster on the forum have the same IP address. Which in most cases, unless using a dial up connection, means that you are both posting from the same computer. In which case we assume it is only 1 person posting under different names. Something that is not appreciated or tolerated on the forum because usually when someone does that, it is to cause trouble which is REALLY not appreciated on here. So anyway thats the explanation.
Anyway, welcome to the forum and please post pictures of Ebony. She sounds like a very pretty dog.
