    Default Im broody for a puppy

    I want a puppy.
    I want a Bordeaux.
    I want a Rottie.
    I want a Giant Mastiff, ive seen these hunting before. So i know they are good for a day in the woods running.
    Would a bordeaux be able to be active? how fit are they. Can they bush walk? For how far?
    A rottie or a GSD would be happy to run all day. Pohm not so keen. I think that's the bordeaux half.

    How many dogs can you have in Melbourne? And is there a way of extending the number, if its 2. Say, 2 and 3 if you are a breeder.
    Not that i want to breed. Sod that, ive read too much on here. But just to be allowed 3.
    I have so much room for dogs. Why cant i have a pack?
    I was allowed to have a pack in the uk, granted, i had to have a more expensive license, but it was allowed.

    Send lovely lady a PM and ask her.

    The DDB I've seen are very energetic - and tow their owners along - so you'd want to be very very consistent with your dog training. You can have more dogs than the council rules permit, but you have to apply to council and you have to get your neighbours to agree. Our council has the insanely dumb rule that you have to get the dog you want and then they decide if you can keep it. Too bad if they say no. Though there is a strong history around here of people saying to council - "yes we will do what we're told", and then doing whatever the hell they like.

    How much room is a lot of room? Are your neighbours close enough to hear dogs barking? What happens if the pack decides to take over?

    I want a puppy too. I'm not asking for much.......just a dozen teeny weeny ST Bernard puppys. I want them to all jump on me and give me puppy cuddles all at the same time.

    Then we can all run up to the glass sliding door and poke out or tounges at the goofs going bananas outside !!! Nah,nah, nah, na,nah....stupid big dogs stuck outside !!!

    The when the local fairs on i can charge little kids to play with them...like they do with the little farm setups with lambs and piglets etc... Then when they grow up i'll do 5 minute doggy rides for $10 a pop.

    I mean ,how hard could it be having 12 St Bernards ??

    Anyone know a good Bernard breeder ?? LOL...seriously though...how cool would it be to have 12 of the little buggers !!

    Plenty of room = 500 acres. I adjoin a forest and wetlands, then bush beyond that. In my property, i have 4 completely fenced separate areas.
    Though tend to open 3 of them together. Not a large garden. But enough to keep hundreds of dogs lol

    and my neighbours would have to strain their ears, to hear it over their 24/7 yapping JRT. But that's still not a given they'd say yes.
    OH is 'considering it', over our holidays.

    the only bordeaux i know, is a bitch, and she's one lazy ass thing.

    I know here, if you have more than so many acres, you're allowed 3 dogs. Go on your local council website and they should have all the information.

    I'd love love love a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy! But I'd be happy with a human baby

    If you've got that much room, I reckon you NEED 4 big dogs! lol.

    These are mostly hunting and utility dogs so a day's bushwalking isn't going to faze them too much.

    Happy hunting!

    I have room. But big dogs, come with big vet fee's/food bills/Fleas/Hair, and i only have 2 arms.
    They do sound promising. The bordeaux's
    Lucky or anyone else that knows...
    Do they drool as much as turner and hooch movie dog? or was that 'hammed up' for tv?
    Do they snore?
    How loud is it, is it as loud as a bulldog?
    How easy to train are they?
    How much pack drive do they have?
    Family, or one man dog?
    I have a male and female, both desexed. What would the recommended 3rd dog be? i prefer males.
    I would want to leave the desex till 2yrs of age. To allow for bone growth, can i do this?
    Any recommended breeders in Vic?
    Will it have green eyes for definite? they are just so soulful to look at.
    Hair loss? is it that short stuff that weaves into clothes, and you cant get it out type?



    And what can i say to a breeder, that would make me a good home for one of those pups!
    I really really dont want to show. But i do want to train. It'd be nice to have a different breed to cater to. A learning curve for me. Hence wanting to get a different breed perhaps?

    Do they snore ? Mojo's nickname is Stihl...as in the chainsaws !!! Crank one up and see if you can sleep. Both the wife and i have cracked up laughing at 3.00 AM cause of the noise of a suffocating Bullmastiff. I think its the slobber building up then running down the back of the throat leading to a sneeze type explosion !!! Its when the snorring stops leading to silence you get worried the old ticker might have given way during the night !! You get used to it though. The Farts are a diffrent ball game.

    French, English, Newfsie, Bull...whatever. Mastiff equals slobber and lots of it.

    Get one !!! You'll love it !!!
