  1. You beleive this becuase he told you so?LOL.A lot of people claim a lot of things many of them not true.So a young guy with limited resources spends $10,000 to import an American pitbull Terrier when he can get one down the road for $500, yeah right. Not to mention it involves the person at the other end sticking their neck out and lying and risking their livliehood and or prosecution which in America means jail time to send some know nothing kid a dog.I dont think so.Yes it can be done but it wasnt done by this young bloke you speak of.Think about it. Nope, originally I called his bluff and pointed out almost exactly what you stated... but I had to eat my words when he showed us all photos of his "hunting" dogs and his (must admit, very cute) pup was there in print for all to see! When I asked how he managed it all he told me was his brother lives in the US and "where there is a will there is a way". I told him he was a total [email protected] and a few other choice words. Unfortunately he hardly has limited resources either. He's 22 and already a $200k plus earner in the mines as a Geotechnical Engineer... money that I could only dream of being on.. LoL. So he showed you a pic of a pup and that makes it true?Lol. Ok, no it doesn't make it true...I lied. He lied. The photo of him and his pup (and his girlfriend I think it was)in the red dirt of Kalgoorlie was most obviously photoshopped.... happy now?! Oh, and the other dudes in the office who have been out shooting with him lied too... lol, probably because he has lots of guns and to argue with him would probably mean a bullet in the foot (just joking). Gosh, I was just telling that it happened. He has contacts... most obviously not very reputable ones. I 150% don't agree with what he did, but he did it. ***sigh*** I knewI should have taken him up on the offer to "prove it" to me, but I didn't want to give him the pleasure of standing me corrected when I told him there was no way he would get one into Australia, especially after seeing the photos and others backing him up. It is worrying thought that if it can happen just how often is it happening?! Just ETA... sorry my response was a bit rude. Am very pregnant and cranky... I don't blame anyone for doubting it. I probably would too.

  3. A young guy I worked with earlier this year imported a Pit Bull pup and got it in to Australia by lying and saying it was an American Staffy.
  4. Hey, I was reading that thread on the other forum as well... I haven't bothered to reply on it because some of the comments were just plain stupid. As for the chick (basically) saying it killed a cat now it'll be after your child is just a whacko!

    I've heard that works really well???!!! Must try it on Bolt... ;)
  6. A lady I work with wants a GSD x Poodle... apparently they are being bred and are popular (so she says) tells me I should have gotten one of them instead of my pedigree GSD!!! I did a google search and they do exist!
  7. Awww really?! Gah... this feeding caper is harder than I thought! I live in the Goldfields, many many kms from Perth. I think I might contact the Black Hawk lady and see if I can get a sample. I'll just have to buy in bulk next time I'm in Perth. Thanks
  8. I think you're right Thanks everyone for your replies... last night and this morning I tried pouring warm water mixed with beef stock over his kibble... he ate about three mouthfuls and that was it. I'll try the lactose free milk and see how we go. I know the little bugga is hungry because he going spastic at the smell of the chicken carcasses I was putting in the freezer last night. I think a major problem is he gets so distracted by everything. I tried feeding him out the back with my other dog, which worked OK the first time, but then he got distracted when I went inside and spent all his time crying at the back door. I've tried feeding him inside, but then ANYTHING will distract him, especially the cats! From now on he's going in his crate to eat... though I already know he will just ignore the food and cry to get out.
  9. I have a nine week old GSD that has decided to stop eating his kibble. When I got him from his breeder I was told to feed twice a day only (does that sound right? was expected three times a day) and was given a bag of Natural Balance kibble, as that was what he was weaned on to. Well, I can't access NB where I live so I have slowly changed him across to Advance... which has been a big fag failure! First of all he would just pick out the NB kibble, and now he flatly refuses to eat even those. I do the whole leave it down for twenty minutes and then remove it, but he just doesn't eat it. Yesterday was the second day he had gone hungry so I gave him some pulverised chicken necks which he almost hoovered down... is this OK to feed him? He is very active, so mixed with not eating he is getting very light on. My question is... would it be OK to go without kibble for a while and feed raw foods instead? Are there any good supermarket brands of kibble anyone could suggest? I only ask because Advance is really the only premium food I can find around here in country WA. My husky loves eating the meat loaf rolls from the supermarket, would it be OK to feed this to the pup?! Sorry for all the stupid questions this is the first puppy I have owned that is so picky with food! Thanks

    Actually I do have one more question! What do you all feed your dogs?! They all look so healthy and beautiful! Bolt's breeder sent him home with Natural Balance, but I cant source it where I am (middle of whoop-whoop WA) so am slowly starting to change him over to Advance as it's all that I can really find around here. I was going to try Royal Canin, but the lady in the shop said Advance was better?!

    Ok, so the pics I have arent that great... if he's not sleeping he's not staying still long enough for me to take his photo! Lilly and Bolt going for a walk Four strides and Bolt is knackered Sleeping on the old bath tub to avoid the ants Oh, and excuse the green paint on his head, that was how he was identified at the breeders... I just have to find a way to get it off without resorting to shaving it off!

    Thanks Ish... he's decided the horses just aren't exciting enough now... they don't run away! But it's the reaction to the goat I wasnt prepared for. He's just so frantic to get to it! You're right though, I'll keep him on the leash to avoid problems. I just wish the goat had of faced up to him instead of trying to run (totally understandable why she did though) and I don't think it would have become a problem. Like you he was the same with the cats but they don't take no sh!t from any dog and quickly put him in his place

    Hi All Haven't been back on since my first few posts asking about getting a GSD puppy, but I thought I would come on to say that we have added a new bundle of crazy fur to our family! My only problem is... I can't post piccys because photobucket is banned at work... sorry! But I can give details. We ended up getting a short haired boy from a small breeder over here... his official name is Hundhaus Golden Eye, but my two year old daughter insists on naming him Bolt, and after many many MANY failed attempts at changing her mind we are now calling him Bolt ourselves so I guess the name has stuck Both Bolt's parents are Incarra dogs. So far everything is going well with him, toilet training has been a breeze and he has intergrated himself into the family so well already. Though... I do have one question for all you experianced GSD owners... is it normal for him to be so prey driven already?! The reason I ask is because I took him to the stable complex where I keep my horses and one of my friends has a young goat. Weellll... Bolt was all excited to see it so we thought we would introduce them to each other, all nice and calm and gentle and such. But apparently Bolt had other ideas and grabbed onto the goats belly and just hung on for dear life. I was morified and dragged him away. I didnt act all excited or anything, I didnt want him to think it was a great thing he's done or anything. But even once the goat was safely in her pen just eating Bolt was whining and barking and frantically trying to get through the fence at it! The next day I put him on a lead and whenever he tried to chase the goat I just said 'leave it', eventually the excitement was too much for the poor bugger and he fell asleep! Something similar happened when he met my daughters pony... went straight for the belly grab and then for the back legs! Was/is my reaction the right thing for me to do?! Gawd, I hate doubting myself, but he is a total different kettle of fish to when my Sibe was a bubba! I really don't want to stuff him or his training up, so if I should have approached this differently I would really appreciate being told now rather than in a few weeks/months when I have totally ruined him!!! The funny thing is he is fine around the chooks, he'll follow them around but is really not that interested in them... which is good. When I get home tonight I'll post some pics of the little cutie

    Thanks Toujour... LOL, I do like the look of the long coats as well! I have looked through the Puppy listings, but there are just so many on there to chose from! I need to narrow it down a bit, but I have no idea how because I don't really know what I'm looking for! They're all cute as can be... surely one (or all) of them would love to come live with us?!
  15. German Shepherd Dog Owners!

    Hi all, I was just wondering if someone could help me... I have searched and searched on the net and I think I am only getting myself more confused!!! The hubby and I are looking at getting a GSD in the future, strictly as a pet and will be de-sexed, but I have a few questions that Dr Google can't seem to help me with My questions/concerns are: I have a two year old daughter... are there any lines in particular that I should either steer clear of OR any that could be recommended for the family?! I'm in country WA so getting to any dog shows etc to meet breeders is a bit hard (7 hour drive to Perth)... are there any breeders over this way anyone knows or could suggest? I am happy to look interstate if need be?! The "working lines" as apposed to the "show lines"... I dont want to cause a stir, but would working lines be OK for a family environment? Maybe stupidest question of all... but does the sex of the dog play a big part in their temperament?! Sorry for all the questions but this dog is going to be in our family for a long time so we really want to make sure we find the best match for all of us. Thanks
