    Talking Asher is Here

    Home again with our rescue boy - Asher. What a gorgeous boy - sensible, affectionate and rode the 4 hour trip home very well. He is registered as a Staffy X. He doesn't seem to be very playful or maybe I am just expecting too much from a 12mth old dog who has just been taken away from his foster family. He's frightened of squeaky toys. He goes away when we squeak it so that is going to be left laying around for him to look at if and when he pleases. Certainly has a good appetite. He is asleep at my feet right this minute and Monday is our first night training. He is perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better dog. Any dog will have teething problems but we will have a ball ironing them all out. Needs manners at dinner time but has no worries about our hands being near his bowl, or petting him while he's eating. Here are some snaps (already) of him..

    He looks like a real sweetie. Very "kind" eyes.

    Oh he's so handsome! Give him time to settle in, everything is so new to him, he's bound to be a bit quiet. BUT, start as you mean to continue, if you let him get away with stuff now it will simply be harder to correct down the track.

    Can I also make a suggestion, that I usually suggest to families with kids, let the dog have a "time-out" area, such as his bed, if he goes there, he is to be left alone. I am a firm believer that just as we humans like to have a little time to ourselves, so do our pets. (says she as another furkid asks to lifted up on to the sofa lol)

    Congratulations to you and to Asher - he's fallen on his paws!

    He is a beautiful big boy, his tail is so l o n g. I love the brindle colour. I have decided that my next dog will be a Staffy Brindle Bitch.
