  1. I have had dogs from the rspca , over the years , and they have been good dogs , but that was 25 plus years ago , my current dog is from the rspca , i ahd been looking for a dog preferably a rescue dog , for a while and noticed how few there were , I quickly relized they were not keeping dogs for long most of the local shelter kennels were used for boarding , and only seemed to keep a few , just enough to be the rspca and get the grants ,, I came across my little fella the first day he came in , in fact i was there when they brought him to his kennel for the first time and put in publ
  2. Its simple really DO NOT TRUST AN ANIMAL 100% ,I've never been without a dog my whole life , just never been a time in my life when a dog was'nt there , I took in a blue heeler 18 months old he was / is a fantastic dog , he was brought up by a single mother with a child and a baby , she had to find a home so i took him , what a great dog he turned out to be , so much so that when my son went looking for a dog and he had two todllers i insisted they take him , i knew he was a great familly dog , 7 years later they still have him , his best mate is my youngest grandaughter he follows her
  3. Put it down , You'll be sorry when it tears your childs face off , So either put it down or give it to a single person no kids , who can handle viscous dogs , I had a rotweiler , same sort of traits , was good with me , but would bite very easily if it felt threatened , it was a dog that no one could play rough with it would fire up and attack ,,, even though i could control it with a look or one word , i did'nt trust it around others especielly children ,, Has my grandkids became toddlers and more likely to approach it , i had to make a discision keep him and lock him up whenever they
  4. Prices are scanadlous freind of mine this week paid $7000 yes you read it correct $7000 for a poodle cross lab or a labradoodle has he chose to call it , Dont care what anyone says its a mongrel its not a registered breed , you can't tell me that this breeder yes breeder is what she called herself was'nt in it for the money only , for my two penth worth if there a good breeder they would'nt be mixing breeds they would be breeding pure bred puppies , he was crazy ,, said he wanted a big dog , a black dog , that does'nt shed too much ,, why oh why did'nt he just go get a giant shna
  5. Well done , sounds like you have it covered ,, I was going to say get rid , wrong dog and breed , try and get a more gentle dog , but youv'e put the work in and now will reap the rewards , i like jack russles myself never had one but like them anyway ,,, personaly i've always had big dogs shepards , rottys and theve always known who's boss , and excatly where they are in the pecking order , , which is a must with big strong dogs , , I now own what i said i would never own , a maltese shitz cross i think ,, or he could be a full blood Lhaps Apso , he resembles them so much , ,
  6. Had a Shepard for 18 years , beutiful long haired shepard , who shed a shopping bag of hair a day and drove my wife mad ,, around the house , but i've had a lot of dogs over the years we have never been without one , and for me the best dogs i've ever had were the rottweilers ,,, they just seemed to be a bit aloof with people and other dogs , which makes them easy to control ,, another great dog i had was a stumpy tail blue healer ,, fantastic dog , but he was to energetic for me , i wanted to walk him he wanted to jog , sort of thing , so i gave him too my son who would go jogging w
  7. Had a Rottweiler that was like him , so much so that i was beginning to think the Breeder had conned me , , he looked like a energetic boxers build , skinny , like yours he was active i'd had 2 other Rottys and they were no where near the energy level this one had , he started prancing around from morning to night non stop ,,, But has he got older , he developed into a strong sturdy good looking dog , in fact everyone commented on him , no fat just out and out muscle and very toned with it ,, Worm your dog , don't give him has much rice , he looks good , my vet would say perfect
  8. Couple of years old probably resolved by now , but my take on this after owning rotties , sheperds and other big dogs ,is simple this owner bought a breed that are big bold and can be agrresive and simply just cannot control it , how it acts in the house proves this put simplyy they just shoulld,nt own this sort of dog
  9. Lol,,, The rottys died years ago i certainly never blamed any of the dogs, i blamed my wife , i think her nervousness when out on her own the dogs could sence it and got protective, she was always very nervous especielly after the female attacked another dog , when its owner stopped for a chat , it did get to the stage where i stopped the wife walking the dogs in the street on her own ,and instructed her only to take them to the dog beach and immidietly unleash them , just walk and let them follow and play with other dogs , both the rottys would generally ignore other dogs and just cas
  10. Just wondering how you did with the dog , was it fixed , Made me wonder if it was you not the dog ,, reason i say that is in the past i've always had big dogs , 2 boxers who were so obeidient i did'nt even need a leash , then a massive sheperd , who was good with or without the leash ,, then we had rottweilers , one a male , the later one a female , each and eveyone of these dogs were great on and off lead , they were all gentle giants ,, but when the wife took the rottys for a walk , they were different , epseielly the female rotty , she was such a loving gentle dog , we found
  11. Don't know if you got a dog yet , But for mr the ideal dog for you would be a blue heeler , fit the match superbly , except they do shed a lot , we have a maltese cross , great companion , but is a bit needy and a bit too much of a suck , although getting better , actually chooses to sleep in its bed now rather than wanting to get on ours ,, well to be honest we have been told it could be a Lhapps Apso , which would be the reason ours is a great watchdog , a suck but he barks only when theres someone there never yaps ,rest of the time just wants to sit with you or on your lap , loves exce
  12. I think a lot depends on the dog , I owned a long haired german shepard , which was the BIGEST and i mean BIGGEST shepards you have ever seen , it was like a small lion , But yet i seen that dog run grab a bird , when i seen it and told it to drop , the bird flew off , only for Sam to lunge and grab it again in mid air , i said drop and he did the bird , (sparrow ) flew off . Supose we have been lucky , my 2 year old used to ride him , he grew up with my youngest , and lived till he was 16 , the dog used to lie down while he sat on his back and then get up and walk , Next 2 dogs were ro
  13. I think your going to be happy with any dog , sounds like you will be a good owner , In a previous post i recomended a stumpy tail cattle dog , but unless your going to be home with it , i'm not too sure i'm finding mine likes to be with people all the time and is getting a bit destructive if left alone for too long . So going back to the draweing board , i would reccomend a Rottie , that is based on the fact after owning 2 for a total of 16 years they are a good dog and do not mind being on there own during the day ,, at least mine did'nt ,
  14. I've had 2 shepards ,, 2 boxers 2 rottys , 1 staffy over the last 40 years or so ,, the rottys were my favorite , because they were the best behaved , shepard used to go other dogs , but if they nipped him he would run away , which was good , the staffy was great but too freindly , if he seen someone a mile away he would be gone and wanting to play , boxers were both terrific dogs but they were scrappers , which made it hard to take them for walks seen another dog they wanted to fight , The royttys were great , noble alert and aloof , , the Aloof part being the best because they
