    E-mail sent from newfie Rescue......this girl needs you or she will be PTS with this picture



    Very little info at the time, except she is people and dog aggressive...........And so started my path of learning about aggressive dogs five years ago. I am now glad I took her. I adore her and she is my heart dog. I think she would give her life for me. She is now a very social dog. But I am no fool. I know she is a managed dog. She need us to keep calm and to be social



    Annabelle looking very happy



    And my proudest moment of her.....her CDX title moment, when everyone told me she never would be any good (well not everyone)

    How many dogs, with a dog aggressive history, do you know who will stay in a sit-stay when another dog is licking them I am really really proud of this girl, she worked so hard and has given her all. I adore her.....

    Well I went to pick up a black and tan female and came home with a red and tan male... Sammy wasn't the most dominant or the least, he was just in the middle. I met him for the first time when he was 6 weeks old, I was trying to play with the black females but he kinda grabbed hold of me and hasn't yet let go...

    Came back when they were 8 weeks and again, as soon as he saw me, he just followed me. There was no way I could leave him behind.

    And well now, he's grown into my best friend.

    Hmm first time we saw Oskar was when we drove to Landsborough to check him out. He was the last pup available and he hung back, his sister was bullying him and biting him (the sister had been sold but was waiting to be picked up). Oskar was shy and didn't seem too interested. We loved him straight way because of his quiet disposition. Of course that didn't last long, but in general he is still generally a placid pooch.Oskar new pup.jpgTaken the first day we bought the little man home.

    I don't have pictures of my two anymore because my laptop died and took them all ray was the one that picked out harley, he was pick of the litter, best markings and the biggest puppy too. The owners kid was in love with him and screamed and cried when we took him home! Made me so sad for the kid!

    Bella we spotted on the add, she stood out with the little black patch on her eye, luckily she was the last one left as well. Runt of the litter and cute as a button. While I'm not a fan of BYB's I liked the owners of where she came from, mum and dad were family dogs and the money that was made from the sale of the puppies was going towards a party for their daughter who had just gone into remission from luikemia.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Todd decided that he wanted a Husky, and did all his research on the breed, he found a breeder, and one fell through, the people were real dodgy but then he found another breeder and picked Halli out of the photos they sent him and couldn't wait to pick her up. I can't find the photos the breeder sent, they are on a different hard drive, but i can find a few. (Halli is the first 2 photos). Brooklyn was 2 years later, he was bought because Todd wanted another Husky and a friend for Halli, he was an adorable puppy, who wouldn't fall in love with a face like his? photos of him are the next 3, Halli was not too impressed by a little pup being around, but she got used to the idea after a while.
    Compton was from our first litter of pups from Brooklyn & Halli about a year and a half ago. We weren't going to keep one, but i fell in love with him while i was watching him grow, he was playful but not in your face, and he was (and still is) very social, as well as also bring very independent and quite content to just do his own thing, he was the smallest of the litter, and is now the biggest.

    nero33.jpgWe had been thinking of getting a dog for a while but it somehow never seemed to be the right time. Then one day friends of ours showed up with their brandnew little black labx pup. She was absolutely adorable! We went there spontaneously and found that only two pups were left. Their mom was there too. She was not too happy about all her pups being taken away but she was calm and friendly. Nero and one sister were the only ones left. They were both very anxious and refused to go anywhere near us. They were in a little room that stank so badly of pee that I could hardly breathe. OH chose Nero over the girl because of the soulfull look he gave him and we took him home right away We were completely unprepared. We didn't own dogs before and didn't know a thing about puppymills or byb's. We had no bed, collar, lead or toys for the little man. We even had to borrow food from our friends for the first night because it was Sunday night and everything was closed.

    In retrospective I'm confident that we managed to tick every single box of 'how not do buy a dog'. It's been a great success though, the best 100 bucks we every invested in anything ever. We are very aware though that this was down to pure luck - it could have gone terribly wrong as the pups were obviously not socalised at all. I don't think they had ever been out of this little room because initially Nero was terrified of everything. E.g. 'outdoors'. The pic is from day 2 or 3... it was the first time I managed to coax him out to play in the grass... he loved it. He still does Tall wet grass is still triggering the zoomies in him

    My two are still on PetRescue too

    Meika - Tamikka's profile at PetRescue (We didn't like the name Tamikka for a dog so just shortened it)
    we spotted online and went to see her, fell in love but couldn't get her for almost 4 weeks because we weren't allowed pets at our rental and had no fence and we were still waiting on settlement for the house we just bought so we went home devistated that we couldn't take her. I checked the website like a maniac every day for all those weeks to see if she was still available and the day before settlement on our new house, I went and adopted her and they were nice enough to keep her overnight for me until we moved into our new house. It breaks my heart that she was there for so long but I'm also happy at the same time because she's such an awesome little dog.

    Molly - Sophie's profile at PetRescue (Again, didn't think the name suited her so we changed it)
    This photo breaks my heart and just made me cry looking at al- she looks so scared and shy compared to what she is now! Her story was a bit different to Meika's, I jumped online about 5pm on the Thursday afternoon and saw her on the website, so 8am Friday morning my partner and I were waiting outside the RSPCA for them to open so we could make sure we got there before anyone else adopted her! Maybe a bit crazy but I just couldn't look at that photo and not take her home with me! When we got there to see her she was terrified, it took me about 10 mins of waiting at the gate for her to come out of her kennel and say hello, she looked a bit skinny and underweight but when I touched her I almost burst into tears, her coat hid just how skinny she was! I just looked at her rescue paperwork and it says she was 15.8kg, I weight her a week ago and she was exactly 24kg and everyone at the park still comments on how she looks skinny!

    Here are some photos of them now
