'Adopted dog' section
Would like to suggest an 'adopted dog' section be created as place for those who have or are considering adopting an 'older' rescued or rehomed dog, as these threads tend to get 'lost' in the main discussion area.
Adopting a dog with some or considerable 'life experience' (good or not so good), is a unique situation, that many times new adopters are not sure what to expect and are at a loss of how to help their new family member adapt and adjust to their new homes. A 'go to' section where they could post their newly adopted 'life experienced' family members, express their joy and concerns and get help where needed with the transitioning, settling in and beyond process and hopefully where those who have travelled the 'adopted dog' journey can lend their voices of experience, and share their ups (and downs), tips and suggestions, of what has 'worked' for them along the way.
It is not the destination but the journey that matters. Thank you Charlie, for the journey, it was truly amazing!
