  1. Any bull terrier breeders? I have a question...

    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.
  2. 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 for (red and tri colour) are harder to find because they are rare and hard to breed or just not very popular. Same goes for the lack of white blaze on the face. I would prefer less white on the face mainly because I live in Tasmania and our sun is HARSH. It's a skin cancer state and I want to prevent risks before they start.
  3. New Guinea Singing Dogs found in the wild

    Loki yodeled, it was quite musical! Wylie screamed.
  4. New Guinea Singing Dogs found in the wild

    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
  5. Boundary fence is being removed

    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 "blind, deaf, senile but still could climb a 6 foot fence if he felt the need.." kinda dog.
  6. Help me come up with a registered name?

    If she gets gas she can be Windy Willow :D
  7. new puppy and choosing a show name....and pet insurance

    Joffrey... Sorry, too Game of Thrones?
  8. Leash aggression

    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.
  9. The Cost of Puppies

    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.
  10. Opinions on breed

    Why not get a Lowchen or a bichon? Why a mutt mix?
  11. Trying to find more info about my dog

    Google the two breeds and what health issues they might have. That's about all the info you will find.
  12. The Cost of Puppies

    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.
  13. New breed in Australia

    Stella is a mix of mixes.
  14. Belly Bands - Pros and Cons?

    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.
  15. New arrivals

    "We need a system that doesn’t discriminate against pet owners" I totally get this, I'm a pet owning renter but I've seen some terrible damage from pets. One of the houses I rented a few years back had a room with massive pee stains on the carpet in one room where the owner kept their dogs locked up. A bloodstain (despite numerous cleaning) from where the owners once had a cat (see the two dogs above and yes, it's what you think ) and despite several carpet cleans, and several bug bombs, a massive flea infestation. Do I blame the pets? no. But I can see how home owners would be wary. I don't know how to solve it? A damage bond is a damage bond, no matter how it occurs? )pet or otherwise) But bogans seem to skip out of paying bond anyway
