    Introducing Bo, male kelpie x. 8 months old saved thanks to AWDRI (whom were unbelievably fast and friendly). We picked him up last night and so far very happy. His very quiet and super placid but we will get him tearing the place apart in no time. Hopefully it won't be long until he has a friend here.

    Thanks all

    Aww. I adore kelpies. He looks like he might have something stockier in him? Maybe GSD?

    Hope he settles in well. Can't wait to see your little one.

    Cheers all, he is now starting to come out of his shell. Didn't make a noise for the 1st day and wouldn't really play with anything. Have spent every minute with him and his now getting excited when he sees us, he even pushed the door open this morning and woke my wife up with a wet nose to the face, he is still very cautious with a lot of things though. We have some work to do on the lead, walks great but drops after cars go past he drops and doesn't want to move. Finally got him to go inside his kennel this morning and he seems ok with it now (although part of the roof off).

    Not taking anything away from my previous dogs Trumpy, Motley and Zephyr (all Dalmatians) I've loved them all, but I can't believe how much easier Bo is to train.

    Hi all again.
    We have now a little friend for Bo. Minnie is an 8 week old chihuahua x foxy and as u can imagine is tiny.

    No doubt I will be on here over the next few weeks begging for help on how to make these pups play nice. So far they are not to bad with each other. Had one awwww moment but spent a bit of time mouthing and been a bit snappy at each other. We have the next few days off to make sure they get along.

    Every time my dog pretends she's a bit thick, Mum calls her a Dalmatian...

    I think they can be trained but figuring out the right rewards and motivations can be more difficult. They're not that keen on Agility or hanging with the boss... Byeee Mum.... got things to do, places to run - long and straight - none of this tight turn stuff...

    Just be careful neither dog gets "rewarded" for being snappy... If it was my dog, all the treats would suddenly disappear and if the message failed to get through, she'd be in her crate or out the back to think about being polite...
