I am thrilled to be the 1400th member of the Forum and want to introduce our family to yours!! We have 2 recent additions to the family...both rescue,also,both were listed as "Old English Sheepdog Mix" on PetFinder.com,and both are now cherished members of our family.
We adopted "Henry" about 5 months ago...he was found 1st as a stray, then removed by police and taken to a shelter when he was found chained to a short chain in a yard with mud up to his shoulders and left with no food or water for days. He was in bad shape, tested heartworm positive, and was going to be put down at a kill shelter before we adopted him..."Henry" at approx. 2yrs old now has blossomed into a handsome, healthy, happy boy in these few months and is adored by all who meet him, we think he is probably mostly Beardie and turns heads wherever he goes, he looks like a shaggy Disney dog!
Our latest addition, "London", is a beauty inside and out, just as the shelter's description said. She is mostly OES, about 1yr old, adopted about a week ago, and we love her dearly. She was also originally a stray that wandered onto a property outside a small town, orginally the people that found her wanted to keep her, until she started chasing their catttle, they then dumped her at a no kill shelter that was already on overflow, but very devoted to saving those they could.
They took her in because the people that dumped her said they would literally shoot her for chasing the cattle if the shelter would't take her(breaks my heart for any helpless being to be mistreated, wish I could save the world!).
Anyway,"London" and "Henry" are home safe and sound and thriving in their new enviornment, and we wouldn't want it anyother way....it's a total lovefest!! They love to go on car rides, love their toys, treats, and to run and play. It's so fun to watch them"hop" around the house and yard playing with each other and the rest of our clan, which includes a little pack of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (all adored family members as well as finished Champions, now retired from the ring and living the good life,ages 6-10yrs and going strong!), one wonderful 2yr old yellow lab, "Jackson"; four German Dressage horses; three big birds, and a tank of salt water fish!! We don't have children yet, atleast not the 2 legged variety that is, lol, but we absolutely adore our furry, feathered, four-legged, ever expanding family and look forward to getting to know you and yours!!

|Hi Welcome London, Henry and the rest of the household!
I like you guys already as I too have a housefull of furballs - although I live in the heart of suberbia. So glad to hear that London and Henry have such a wonderful home and are obviously well loved.
I'm Marianne, mom to 3 canines - Merlin, Panda and Blue, as well as an assortment of small creatures, cats, rabbit, and guinea pig. I also have two upright boys.
It was thanks to this forum and many wonderful members that Panda (shown in my avatar) was rescued and flown from Hong Kong to my home in Vancouver.
Please don't hesitate to join right in as this place is so friendly. Sometimes we chit chat about events in our lives and other forums are so informative regarding medical and behavioral issues. I'm sure you'll return time and time again.
Nice to meet you!
Marianne and the boys
|Welcome from Australia, London, henry and the rest
Lisa and sheepie girls, Kelsey and Brie.
Can't wait to see your pictures. The King Charles Spaniels are really cute dogs too. Sounds like you are truly an animal lover, I can relate. I am new too. I think I'm number 1399 so you truly one upped me. But with your houseful you deserve such distinction.
|Hey Ron...well that explains it...I knew this Forum was great,it's gotta be if it's housed in Texas!!.......guess that makes all the members "Honorary Texans"!!!!? Seriously,you have alot to be proud of with this Forum...and it is obviously the people that make it so special... you have established an exceptional group here,congratulations!! Marianne,I like you already too,sounds like their are a number of us in this forum that inherited that crazy gene which causes us to have a houseful of furballs,lol,but in my opinion it wouldn't be home without them!! I look forward to hearing more about your brood as well......and Chris,I truly understand your 12 1/2 yr old Drezzie being the love of your lives.....and Las Vegas Sheepie Lover your babies and their photos are adorable...I look forward to getting to know you all:Lisa and the girls in Australia,Deana and your rescue babies(London and Henry are my 1st rescues,and they are our special angels,we want to give them the very best life has to offer,they deserve so much more than they have had);Julianne and her babies; and look forward to getting to know all the rest of this wonderful little forum family. Anyway,I think i'm already addicted to this group,it's contagious,lol !!!! Again,many thanks to all of you for your kindness and warm welcome! We will try to post photos soon.....ttyl,Kimberly.|

We're happy to have ya! I enjoyed the introduction to your family. What a great group you've got. Can't wait to see the pictures.

There's also Summer, a grey quaker parrot, and Oscar the goldfish. Right now, I've got a really cute little OES/Wheaton mix that I'm fostering named Mr. Muggs, too. So, the house is full!
|Hi Tammy and thanks for the welcome!.....your gang sounds wonderful,look forward to getting to know you all!! Kimberly|

I've always wondered where we were, although I must admit I thought we were all sitting at my kitchen table, sharing a cup of tea.
Sometimes I thought I was sitting on the curb, having an ice cream cone of consolation for one thing or another. But it looks like we've graduated to the porch? Yay!
|Glad you like it, Ron! That's what I always imagine....it's a big group now...so we're sitting out on the front porch in rocking chairs, on the swing, in the glider, sipping iced tea or lemonade and eating the cookies you put out on the sideboard.|
|LOL......you all are too funny.......and tea and cookies sound great,but where and when is "Happy Hour".....cocktails,anyone?!....lol|
Both of my OES's Rags & Pepsi are rescues. I also have Toy Poodle - Psycho Peanut and a Red Earred Slider Turtle. Plus two uprights Hayley 12 mos and Ryan 7 yrs

I am Becca, owned by Benjamin (11 mo old OES), Kiara (7yr old mix rescue/the best we can figure she is chow/pit/boarder collie mix), Stormie (10yr old kitty), Samson (4yr old kitty), Ty (2yr old parakeet), bunch of fish (2 tanks full, but Jack "the Dempsey" is the main one), Micah (4 yr old beautiful boy), Joshua (10 mo old chubbie baby), Quinton (the love of my life aka Hubby).
We look forward to hearing more about you and your "children" and seeing pictures! We LOVE pictures!!
