I've been wanting a dog since I was a kid. I always lived in an apartment before buying my condo, so I was never able to buy a dog. My sister's friend is giving away her dog, who is 1 yr old, because their family isn't home most of the day to watch him. So I'm adopting him...I'm so excited to be getting him. I'll be getting him in about 2 weeks...here's a pic of him when he was a puppy. Isn't he adorable? Any tips on house training a dog? They said that he's somewhat housetrained to go on those pee pads, but he sometimes has accidents.
