Look who I picked up!

So my boyfriend is a sucker for Heelers and cattledogs in general (and I'm a sucker for cute puppies in general). We go by the local shelter occasionally to say hi to the dogs and today they had this sweet boy. This shelter is not a quality shelter by any means and he was filthy, covered in feces and urine and he is just fur and bones.

Well my bf had to have him (I didn't object ;-) ) We took him to the vet and got him wormed and a booster. He obviously has some Australian Shepherd in him (blue merle) but his face is very Husky looking to me (the vet agreed) and his eyes are fantastically blue. It may be hard to tell in the pictures. The vet couldn't give me a closer age range than 8-12 weeks. He seems closer to 8 weeks to me. He weighs 5 pounds.

My Golden came from that shelter too :-) (Just a tid bit)

Yep I'm doing some name searching. I have considered "Blue" and have been looking up names that relate to that.
