Silky? My Last "rescue" is purportedly 1/2 silky 1/2 Powder Puff. I was his 5th ppl before he turned 2 years old. (photo in my media) Bought for $650USD from Kona Pet store by a lady who simply had $$. (no application, no screening).She decided Hawaii wasnt for her (most last <2yrs on Big Island), left him in car at airport!dont know anything about ppl #2, but Next ppl (#3) decided he was cute but stupid and offered him for free in classified ads-(never tried any classes, or time) He was almost 6 months.Then a soft hearted but destitute woman took him to be a "Mouser". (ppl#4). She literally lived on a house pad floor, without any outside walls, roof was blue plastic tarp, in the jungle...and needed a rat killer as they apparently ran through her "camp" at night.....Geez! She also posted an ad in a local forum and I grabbed him the same day, straight to the vet, and he's come miles finally learning he has security,food, love, playmates, walkies, etc. Right now hes the "alpha" for the first time in his life and its been just what the Doc ordered...but Im looking for Beagle playmate if I can find one.
