My new puppy Bindi by Toonime My new puppy Bindi by Toonime
Say hello to my new puppy. Her name is Bindi, after Steve Irwin's daughter, and she is called that cause she looks like a little Dingo. X3
She's 14 weeks old and is super sweet, I have to admit, I was hesitant at first, but now I feel good about this. I was mainly just nervous about having a dog again in so long, and if I'll have enough to take care of her, etc., etc. But, I am so happy to have her now. I guess also because I've been around cats for so long, and all I've had these past few years is a cat, so it makes me feel weird having a dog again. But, I love her and no one is taking her away from me.

Looks like your got yourself a little Carolina Dog pup there.  Don't worry about being a "cat person", since Carolina Dogs often act more like cats than dogs, anyway.

Holy crap! 80
You may be right. The rescue originally told me that she was a Shepherd mix, but she fits the physical description quite well. Hell, another name for these guys is American Dingo. Hope she won't be a huge handful.

Rescues and shelters(which supply many of the rescues) are notorious for mislabeling dogs' breeds.  Most of the people who work for them can't tell a Dachshund from a Great Dane.  Unfortunately, Carolina Dogs get mislabeled as "Shepherd mixes", "Husky mixes", "Lab mixes", etc., all the time when they wind up in a shelter or rescue situation.  Very few dog shelter or rescue people know about the breed, and their policy of mandatory spay/neuter of all dogs, no exceptions, results in an increasing loss of gene pool in the breed, which is already becoming scarce in the wild.  Most of the dogs in the UKC stud book are related to one another, so we're in desperate need of new bloodlines to maintain genetic diversity and avoid inbreeding.

That is sad to hear. A lot of times the cat rescue I volunteer with seems to have trouble labeling our cats. Though, it can be easier to tell a type of cat from a dog, since most you see at our rescue are your standard Domestic short-hair. Hell, a lot of times I have to tell people cats like Tabbies, Tuxedo, and Calicos are fur colorings, not breeds. I did read up on the Carolina Dog breed, and while she doesn't show any cat-like quirks, she does fit most everything else in physical description, temperament, and ease in training. Still love her though, and hopefully she'll get along well with my cat, but he likes to stay away from her. XD And, if God willing, I can start fostering cats and kittens again, she'll be good around them too.

Thanks. I will admit I am pretty nervous still. Taking care of a cat is easy, especially a full grown one, since I've been volunteering at a cat rescue for years. But, a puppy is a new one for me since it's been so long since I had one. I really wanna make sure she is happy, but I'm so scared about it sometimes. I'm probably gonna feel worse than this when I become a father. XD
