OMG! Don't let Pat Cook get an Aussie!

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Well, its not like she isn't trying. SHe has tried out several dogs lately, but they are either unsound or dead heads. She has tried out Am Staffs, "gamebred" dogs and all kinds of rescue dogs. Kinda sad that "normal, good" pit bulls (or staffs) are getting so rare. Some one sent her a dog up from Texas that wasn't even purebred (and wasn't much of a dog). She is wonderful about finding great homes for these dogs (after altering, of course) but she can only spend so much time looking.

Ok Rumpley... want to meet up to test out Shasta for the WSP? Zoe tested her out a bit lastnight and she searches and searches and searches. I'm going to go out on Wed. and take her out and about to test her. This girl has a need to work.

Plus it doesn't hurt that she is gorgeous. :inlove:

I sent Pat an email about the pup that I'm fostering for Pitbull Project (5-6 month old female)... she replied that she is looking for a male that is a little older.

keep trying!

Hi..

I have a very nice male pup I'd love to place in a working home. He is 16 weeks old, very very drivey, but sweet as pie. He's already neutered.

He's out of fully health tested, titled parents. His parents, and older sibling from litter 4 years ago, have all proven to be great working dogs, in agility, weightpull, obedience, and conformation... we are starting to playin flyball as well....

This is him at 8 weeks old.... I know he's not black....

Incidently.... I do know of a beautiful Black and white male in AZ that needs a great working home, he'd be about 2 now I think...

Not sure if she'd take a blue, but I will sure ask her. Probably want something a little younger than 2, because by the time it is trained up it will be 4.

Funny story, Pat Cook just took Happy for a trial to see if he works out with her household. Cross your fingers for the little doof ball, maybe we will be seeing him High in Trial next.

Pretty damn freaking awesome! She is VERY particular though in what will work for her, so we will see if he can pass muster. If not, well, he's having a pretty fine adventure roflmao

Meh, he's coming back (not that I mind, I missed his little speckled butt) Oddly enough, he passed ALL her criteria (gets along great with her pack, is smart as a whip, easy to train, never gets tired, loves to work, work, work) BUT he is scared of new people now? NOT how he was here AT ALL. Submissive, yes, scared and defensive, no. Interesting how dogs reactions are so situational. He had a great adventure and he will be back in time for Dock season

That's just terrible. I've never heard of her but she sounds awful to trade dogs in and out like that. She should be put on a DNA list. There's probably a good reason the dog was afraid at her house.

Not afraid of HER, just strangers. She doesn't do a shut down and it would take a dog of a very specific temperament to take that kind of change, new people, new dogs, new place, no bond with new handler and not be stressed out in some way. May be why she is having trouble finding 'that' dog.
I find it a fascinating study in how situational a dogs reaction can be, along with the importance of NOT overwhelming a new dog.
