He is lovely, he's a bit like a deer, those long legs and doe eyes. Good on you d0in.

He's the only complete dog I have. T'others are all spayed or neutered. That's why he is here. He was in foster with two complete bitches, one was booked in to be spayed this week, but surprised everyone with a very early season and t'other came into season pretty much as soon as she arrived.

He's moved here to keep him away from them, so there's no chance of any litters grin

He is very big but is proving to be a gentle giant. He met my nephew today, who is normally scared of dogs but Fudge's calmness put him at ease and they walked along side by side in the end smile

I thought having an extra full time would be easy.

Do his legs ever stop???? So gorgeous - and good luck keeping the ladies and the gentlemen apart!

He is lovely smile

<wonders if I could squeeze in another big dog>

Oh wow, he is lovely and HUGE!

Oh poor lad. sad I'm so glad he was rescued. I've got my fingers crossed that he finds a wonderful forever home.

Fudge is adorable, he must stay.

D0oinMeCleanin Sun 27-Jan-13 21:00:01

He was attacked in his kennel by the other dogs sad

He has scars all down his side. His owner didn't want to pay out for vets so took him to the track to be destroyed by the track vet sad

He was lucky. The vet didn't turn up that a day but a friend the rescue did. They patched him and gave him to us where he safe smile

Even after going through all of that he is still perfect with other dogs and people.

Whippoorwhill Sun 27-Jan-13 20:47:35

Aw, he's gorgeous. What happened to his shoulder?

D0oinMeCleanin Sun 27-Jan-13 17:02:09

Part Greyhound part Pony I think grin

and utterly stunning as you can see

The first one is going home on Tuesday, her owner has found a house by right by a beach smile So a brilliant happy ending for her smile

Ooh, what breed is he? <nosey?

I love big dogs, that's why I only have space for two sad

D0oinMeCleanin Sun 27-Jan-13 12:44:58

Well he is here. He is, um, not very small. I think he uses two dog spaces, even for a large breed dog he is large grin

Savage dog is not happy.

Devil Dog is over joyed, oddly, he's normally sniffed and decided since he can't eat it, he'll ignore it by now, but he seems quite friendly today hmm

Terra, the puppy will be fine, you'll manage. You'll have fun. Honest grin

ahhh, they're already working as a team - you are in for interesting times Terra! shock

TerraNotSoFirma Sat 26-Jan-13 14:06:33

Thanks Dooin, I'll need it, it's been eight years since I did the puppy stage and to be honest I never had a minutes bother with my GSD as a puppy, she practically trained herself and never chewed any furniture or anything.
I don't think any dog can be as good a puppy as her.

Although Terradog is in disgrace today, I had 2lb of diced steak defrosting on a high shelf, the cat must have got up there and knocked it to the floor, where they both shared a feast.

D0oinMeCleanin Sat 26-Jan-13 09:27:58

Ooh a puppy Terra? Good luck wink

D0oinMeCleanin Sat 26-Jan-13 09:27:21

Seasons happened. Two young bitches came into season, the week after an a complete male came into the rescue. So until seasons have finished or vets can be booked they need to be separated, but I already have one short term foster in.

bumpybecky Sat 26-Jan-13 01:09:47

I thought you'd already realised that one of your dogs was in fact a cat.

Some of them are quite little too right? that Devil dog, he's a terrier isn't he, they're well known for being tiny, and Whippety things are very skinny, if you turned it sideways there's hardly any dog at all.

Altogether they can't be taking up as much space as a big dog. So four small mostly dog like things is about the same as one big dogue de Bordeau (apologies for my terrible spelling!)

You know, looking at it like that you've only got one big dog equivalent. I think you've got room for some more.....

TerraNotSoFirma Sat 26-Jan-13 01:01:52

Was it the favourite breed thread what did it?
As I hold it fully responsible for the fact I pick up my Irish setter pup tomorrow. smile

Ullena Sat 26-Jan-13 00:54:37

What happened?

You need more, of course you do!

D0oinMeCleanin Sat 26-Jan-13 00:41:19

Ooops is all I have to say on the matter.


T'will be fine. It's only for a wee while.

When I said we can only fit three dogs into the house, I never mentioned bitches, did I? I said dogs. Ergo, we still have space for two more dogs grin

How hard can four be compared to three anyway? hmm
