  1. Not to mention this just yet another in a long, long line of "wolf like" dog "breeds" that have been bred over and over and over....
  2. Also, yes, I have researched the breed, I'm still deciding if I should get one, and yes I know colour is not important if it's "the right dog" But I'm in the early stages of putting out my feelers and nothing is set in stone. But I do like the solid coloured dogs and that's my preference.
  3. Can I ask any Bull Terrier (or specifically Miniature Bull Terriers, in case it makes a difference?) breeders a question on colour? I've been googling and researching breeders looking for red or tri colour dogs and the majority are brindle, and a lot are mostly white as well. I'm looking for breeders with more solid coloured dogs with no or limited white on their faces. Are dogs without a white blaze less desirable, therefore not bred for? I'm just starting my journey and I know nothing about Bull terrier colours (ie, what's "in" ) so I have no idea if the colours I are looking
  4. Loki yodeled, it was quite musical! Wylie screamed.
  5. I'm not surprised! The NG Singing Dog is a primitive Asian breed along with Shiba Inus and Dingos. If you have ever heard a Shiba in full song you can clearly hear the family resemblance. Also, Loki was terrorised for many years by my neighbours cat who would lie in wait then spring out and boop his tail. More proof that cats are really in charge :D
  6. I'm no help at all with who to talk to about the fence, But this I understand.. "Basenji = no recall/no road-sense and ageing basenji = going deaf and so can't hear approaching vehicles" Take out the aging, going deaf bit and you still have a breed of dog that NEEDS SECURE FENCING. I'm sure someone will suggest who you need to contact but when you do,, make sure you really push the aging, deaf, no recall part because most people don't get the breed bit but will understand (hopefully)the rest. I haven't had a basenji, I've owned Shiba inus... One was a 16 year old "
  7. Not an expert in dog behavior, but if you can't afford a trainer, you in no way can afford the legal fees and fines if your dog actually bites or threatens someone. Doesn't even need to threaten someone in fact , imagine your dog lunging or barking at someone who is elderly and they startle and fall, breaking their hip. Sounds far fetched? It can happen A trainer is cheaper in the long run by far.
  8. Prices go up. 20 years ago I paid $140 a week rent for a 3 bedroom house. Now in the exact same area I'll have to pay between $250-450 for the same. It sucks, but it's life.
  9. Why not get a Lowchen or a bichon? Why a mutt mix?
  10. Google the two breeds and what health issues they might have. That's about all the info you will find.
  11. The price of puppies has gone up. But so has the general cost of living. Or not. When I got my first shiba there was less than 10 breeders in Aus? Loki was $700 limited register then. There are far more breeders now and I'll need to pay well over a thousand, close to two for a shiba on limited now.
  12. Does he know he is doing it? Sorry, that seems like a silly question? I've only had 2 experiences with incontinent dogs, One was when Loki was in his last year of life, (16 years or so) He had to be confined to a large dog crate over night because he would get stressed and want to wander (he was blind and becoming senile) and he also started wetting his bed. He did it in his sleep, and never seemed to notice We just gave him a rubber tub as a bed and a series of washable blankets.
