  3. Here's hoping that your good heart has at least brought to the owners attention some behavioural problems that they will now work with themselves..
  4. Found A Dog Tonight

    You still have the option... you've stated more good reasons then bad ones about keeping her
  5. Hi Inspired 1.. Firstly,as a BC Rescuer I say good on you for giving this girl a chance From what I've read I'm guessing this girl has never actually run with other dogs freely, only on a lead walking in a park situation etc. When you arrived at their house with your boy it does sound more of a territorial behaviour which she's continuing with at your boy still. BCs never forget a threat! This escalated by the fact she is now seperated from her pack (old owners) scared in a strange place with more dogs that she's interpreting as 'more threats'.. I think your best approach now is to give her a space of her own for a little bit - a seperate run outside of a day or if necessary a crate like Jules said- where she can observe the goings on in your home without being under any pressure to fit the mould just yet... I have had many troubled rescued BCs come into my care displaying the same basic behaviour and after a few days like this you will see a difference in her, it is then up to you to judge whether she has shown enough progress for you to feel comfortable enough with her to continue your efforts. Where do you live?

  9. Living With Multiple Dogs?

    We very rarely have under 12 dogs here at a time... we own 7 altogether - 2 x greyhounds, 4 x BCs & our Cattle girl + 5 cats & a Corella + 3 kids.. Then on top I currently have 4 foster dogs too.. We are on half acre and live close to a great secluded off leash area that few know to visit I am fortunate to receive fresh chicken mince from a local distributor for my foster pups but I supply all the adult meat + biscuits, bones & weekly liver treats.. I've never added it all up how much it all costs because whats the point - it has to be donebecause we chose to do it, so we do it & LOVE IT!!!
  10. Bull Terriers

    Just wanted to add that if it possibly helps you guys or Duramater timewise find him somewhere then I can organise a yard here for him temporarily..transport to Newcastle would need to be arranged though. I do have kids but have seperate safe yards so he can be safely & happily contained unless supervised..
  11. Bull Terriers

    He so needs some love..
  12. Bull Terriers

    Hi Guys, just thought I'd pop in and let you know about this poor lil beaten up & surrendered boy in Kurri Pound.... Impound #: 538 K15 Breed: Bull Terrier Size: small-medium Sex: Male (desexed) Age: 18 months Due: SURRENDER Observation Notes: This poor boy is in bad condition. Not only is he skinny, but he also has bite wounds to his ears & head. He is also timid. However, he is anything but aggressive nor is he defensive. He comes across as friendly. Nonetheless he will need lots of TLC.
  13. Why Do Other Dogs Want To Hump

    It could simply be acts of dominance.. even though he may act calm & somewhat submissive around other dogs during play (I'm presuming this as there is no mention of him retaliating) he may still display 'entire attitude' in some way when he greets them making them want to test him..
