For the past few months Brad and I have been talking about getting a second dog. We threw around the idea of going to a breeder here in Germany but found out that was waaay too expensive and also many German breeders will not sell dogs to Americans. The Americans in Germany do not have a good reputation as pet owners. The majority of dogs in the shelters in this area of Germany are dogs who were abandoned by Americans. Sad, right? Well we brought the topic of a new dog up with our landlords and they were thrilled with the idea. They have 4 dogs of their own and also watch Kali whenever we travel. Our landlord G is part of an organization who rescues dogs from Spain and fosters the dogs in her home until they have a home. She told us she would be willing to work with us and find a puppy for us. To our surprise, we got a call from her about this cute little girl pictured below.
