Long story, but this kiddo is in our rescue:
He was purchased by a woman, from a petstore - she says he "barks too much" (Uh YEAH that's typical of the breed!!) and has scratched a few kids by jumping up on them. Those were the reasons given other than he's dominant and her American Eskimo (interestingly came from the same breeder in Kansas) fought with the little guy.
I had major questions because the paperwork indicated he was neutered-what puppy miller NEUTERS before the sale!? So I called the breeder/puppy miller, she said he must have had an inguinal hernia because her records (cough) state he's altered.
Anyway - she had the nerve to question why he was in RESCUE, and when I told her he barked too much, she asked about the new owner. I was so pissed, and wanted to tell her that it was none of her smurfing business but I didn't...I was decent...
But onwards and upwards. Now that I have confirmation I can stop worrying and adopt him out. We were going to see about a testosterone level (I remember Red's neutered boy who had surgery to remove non existent "undescended" testicles!!) but now I guess we're in the clear.
Isn't he cute?
At another point in my life I'd have considered keeping him but now isn't a good time at all and we have a home lined up for him already, they were waiting on the news about his alter.
