Eight years ago this fellow showed up unexpectedly on our doorstep. We could not find out who the owner was and it was apparent that he had been abused. He was very frightened of us and it took a lot of hard work for me to gain his trust. Luckily at that time I was unemployed and had a lot of free time on my hands. I fed him and eventually when we could not find the owner he adopted us by staying.
He was a handful in the beginning very energetic. He still does not accept strangers and only trust me but I am ok with that because the dog has immense love for me which does not always show in the photos, but he is so very important to me. He is our little alarm system and he is the wagging little tail when I get home – my loveable little black dog.
