My name is Gaylea..owner of 1/2 Boston Terrier/australian shepard. LUV my dog, he's 6 months old, just neutered at first of the month, and is spoiled worse than my grandkids.!! Just having one problem...when I leave him home alone, he punishes me by finding something to tear up or something to trash! That is the one and only complaint! I think that thats pretty good for a 6 month old pup, I know he gets separation anxiety, and we spend a great deal of time together, and I am hoping he will outgrow this problem. I have to re-arrange my whole house when I leave him home, yet..he still manages to find somthing to get into. If that is the worst of dog ownership, the happiness and friendship he provides to me outweighs any any messes he makes. Thanks for listening
