Hello everyone!

My name is Rachel and I am new here(obviously). Anyway, me and my mom went to the pet store today to get fish food. Though, I always walk by the dog section and there was a cockapoo. No, I am not one to usually buy any animal or any of my pets from a pet store, I usually buy them from a breeder. But I could not pass him up. It was love at first sight.

Honestly, the lady at the pet store that let us look at him said that he wasn't very friendly so he has been there for like four weeks. But, when we sat in the small play pen with us he was as friendly as ever. I knew right then and there that he needed to become apart of our family. It was a big surprise for me! Coming home from a pet store with a new puppy when we only went there for fish food!

Anyways, he is the sweetest little thing! Already so smart too! He has been good for peeing outside and is currently pooped out on my lap as I am typing this up for you guys! All he wants to do is cuddle up to us and he strives for our attention. He really is something else :D

We are still looking for a name for him, we have had some few good ones but none that have really clicked with us yet!

Hi Rachel, there was a discussion about cats being sold in pet shops recently. Is it usual for puppies to be for sale there? (I'm assuming you are in the States/Canada)
Tanner certainly looks healthy enough, he's very cute :) He may have missed a big chunk of early socialistion though. I'm sure you will find lots of advice on here to help you.

kids song...."how much is that doggy in the window....woof woof....the one with the waggly tail.....how much is that doggy in the window...woof woof.....I do hope that doggy's for sale." lol

We have lots of pet stores who sell dogs....some not so good and over priced...others that are fantastic and care.

Thanks so much everyone!

Yes, it is a petstore but a local one. It is the only one in my area that I know of that has dogs they sell in it! He is such a good boy so far! He slept all night last night with me, without waking up once.

He really is a miracle boy! Tanner has already stolen the hearts of everyone in my family!
