When I saw him it was love at first sight. I believe I was around 12 when my parents told myself and my smaller sister that we would be dog sitting "Rex" for a few weeks. What we didn't know at the time, was that he was all ready ours as long as he wasn't aggressive. A friend brought him to us, and he crawled into my lap right away, and started licking my face. I found out later that Rex had been abused in his previous home. We believe his past owner had different men over (because he was okay with my mum after a while, but it took my dad a long time) and he had been neglected. He didn't know what a walk was, and never ate or drank as much as he needed, as if he was reserving it. It made me so sad and angry, but I knew the best thing I could do for him was love him with all my heart.
Rex has been with us for around three years now, and we have loved him. He is super protective when we're at home, but gets very timid when meeting people outside. I can't imagine my life without Rex, and I love him with every ounce of my being.
Even though he still has nightmares some times, we're all getting through this together. I love him, and I'm so glad he came to us.
