  1. I'm sure there were Newfies there last year......positive there was one in the Gp lineup....
  2. My thoughts exactly And mine. Social media has given people a whole new audience for conspicuous compassion. Amen to that.
  3. OSoSwift - there may be a vacant establishment at Bracken Ridge on the horizon.....
  4. The first and only time I went to the million paws walk there was a woman walking a cat...surrounded by hundreds of dogs and getting pissed off every time a dog got wihin a few metres of her. She received an earful from quite a few dog owners - complete stupidity IMO......I'm sure she thought she was being clever....
  5. I've had some shocking experiences from kennels - the good, the bad and the ugly....now I have one where I know the owners very well and completely trust them with any of my animals...I have never had that before....the dogs come back as well and fit (or better) as when they went in...I don't worry about fights, ticks, incidents, escapes, vet issues being ignored or anything else...so I agree with OSoSwift - they exist - you just have to go looking and be selective...
  6. How do you know it's a kennel from Bracken Ridge? It doesn't mention a suburb in the article.
  7. Kirislin - if you look at the pics she is seen dragging the dog away - they are both bloody....and another shot she is strolling off with friends...dog still on a loose lead......complete f*ckwit...she deserves to be imprisoned. I doubt the dog will make it out of the pound.
  8. The dog isn't being PTS as a punishment. One can sugar coat it but of course the dog is being PTS as punishment...if it hadn't bitten it wouldn't be PTS. I have sympathy for the OP - have you yet seen a vet and had the dog checked given that his behaviour has changed towards you as well? Pain, ailment, disease could all be factors that could potentially be treated.....
  9. I have been on both sides of this equation........had a puppy be diagnosed with something unexpected 6 months after sale...I absolutely wanted to know and ensured owners and puppy received what they needed. The owners did not want to return her...fair enough. They keep me informed how she is travelling and so far so good. I purchased a puppy before Xmas...started displaying symptoms which were diagnosed as a serious genetic issue.....breeder really didn't want to know...begrudgingly has returned part of the price of the puppy but was far more interestred in me returning him to her for her to
  10. http://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/dog-put-down-due-to-open-wounds-overgrown-nails-20130702-2p8lm.html A family who owned an emaciated dog with matted fur, an open wound, and overgrown nails that were so long they had curled more than 360 degrees has been fined for animal cruelty. A 72-year-old man, his wife and daughter were fined $5000 each and permanently prohibited from owning a domestic animal when the matter was in the Fremantle Magistrates Court on Tuesday. Giovanni Bassi, Maria Bassi and Julie Bassi of White Gum Valley were charged with being the persons in charge of an animal that s
  11. Do I think police over reacted - yes absolutely......do I think the owner placed himself and the dog in harm's way - yes.....why not roll up the windows of the car when you put the dog in it or better yet just keep driving anfd don't stop in the first place.....an awful death for the dog......
  12. I had a councillor of my state body tell my neighbours that my breed was bred to "hunt down and kill people" and would also "kill all the local pets and wildlife"...scared the hell out of the neighbours until they actually came over and met ther dogs and realised it was all BS....
  13. Tony Smith at Fernvale Vets - simply fabulous...well worth the drive and it is a return trip of 260kms for me :) It is reasonably easy to get an appointment....
  14. As a matter of interest how long ago was it that you had decided against an Elkhound? If you have suddenly switched to another breed just how much time did you spend researching your new choice?
