Hi, I'm Anne Lucas (still in the process of changing to my married name: Quigley) - my husband John and I have been approved for adoptions with MLRR; and we'd like to set up a meeting with Payton. Our home in Villa Park has a good backyard that's mostly fenced, and will be fully fenced very soon. We have our adult son (23yrs) living with us, and our two cats; and we added Harley to the mix in mid-October. He's a 8 month old boxer/terrier mix. He's settling in pretty well; he's a VERY good boy for a teenager. We're still working on teaching him to ignore the cats and he still does a little excitement / submissive dribbling inside every once in a while. He's well-socialized and goes to doggy day camp once or twice a week, he LONGS for a household playmate, and we've always had two dogs, so we're longing for that just-right match, too! The perfect fit would be an older dog (1-3 1/2 year old) who's playful and energetic, but who is also kind of a hall-monitor. Harley will benefit most from a dog who will be his leader, without causing clashes and skirmishes. We'd like to check out Payton's energy and see if he might be the fit we're looking for. What are your thoughts?
