Hello! We are from Idaho and own 2 of these great dogs. Our first one we adopted from our local shelter, He is a 2 year old male named Otto. According to the shelter his previous owners left him when they moved. We could tell after playing with him a while that he had been abused. Just his actions and temperment. We have found multiple scars which we believe to be cigarette burns. We have never seen any bit of aggresion towards anyone or anything. Except cats. He is the most loyal and loveable dog we both have seen. Unfortunatly 60lbs is not an ideal weight for a lap dog but hey what are you going to do. Our newest edition to the family is "Sister". She is 8 weeks old. Her father is a Blue nose and her mother is a Red nose. She has more of the looks of the Red nose. She is the runt of her litter, that is probably what made us want her the most. Otto still hasn't adjusted to her, being a puppy she likes to jump in his face and climb all over him. There is a link to pics in our profile and our avitar is them as well.
