You must provide a safe, playful environment for every dog no matter what.

I about nine months ago I lost my Jack Russell who was dropped off at my front door the day after Christmas by a gentleman who asked me to watch it for two days until he could find somebody to take care of it.

She would sleep on my chest at night while his adorable dog, Kayka would snuggled up in bed beside us.
