    ...I went with the second of the two English Shepherds up for adoption.
    He is a year and a half old, on the large end of his breed (over 70lbs) and VERY very sweet.

    He is NOT fixed yet (which is the reason I wanted the other one) BUT I wrote the other one off almost immediately and for good reason.

    ...I'll get to all that as well as lots more pics, but first...

    It was a road trip! :c

    Turns out the farm was almost 5 hours away (though the trip home only took 4).
    I started out bright and early.

    Because my phone battery blows and I knew I could not rely on it for GPS, I did it the old fashioned way... with directions (that I got from Mapquest).

    It was waaay up there in NY state, just shy of VT.

    In the distance, those are (I believe) the Catskills...

    He does very well on road trips, as it turns out!

    Not yet. And we hope to get him fixed asap, so...

    Okay, so the foster family had two purebred English Shepherds up for placement and this is the one I actually went there for. They called him Castiel. He's the smaller of the two and he's the one who's neutered, which I why I wanted him...

    [​IMG]

    So I arrive at the farm and Castiel, as well as two English Mixes were outside. They all barked and ran around me. The mixes greeted me with wagging tails and kisses on my hands.
    Castiel was standoffish.

    Then the foster mommy came out and as I walked up to greet her, Castiel circled behind me and BIT ME!!

    Broke the skin. I bled for like, 10 minutes and my calf muscle was sore.
