This forum is the best place to learn about these dogs! I joined before we rescued our Mabel and don't know what I would have done without the help I received here--and the support!
"Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them and
filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."
I just posted something similar to what is being said but yes educate yourself and read read read all of the info we are posting and or asking questions or giving advice on from this site. They can have food allergies from the beginning to end or just get one out of the clear blue or seasonal allergies as well. Goodness sakes alive it is never ending learning but as many have already spoke on that this particular breed is most definitely one of a kind and once you go their you will ask yourself what the heck took you so long lol of course thats I see when I look at my kid and all the previous kids before her lol. She runs my life and I love it.
