    Riverside CA area- Show me you can care for a DT-Must find him a home.

    I respectfully agree that these enclosures are not large enough and not appropriate for a CDT. I’m positive that CTTC would not permit a CDT to this environment. I say this, as my friend Lynda, does the permitting for fish and game. Again, I am not trying to be mean or critical. Proper...
