    I can vouch for Ridgebacks .... my last Ridgy passed away about 4 years a go now. AMAZING dogs. Super fast and lots of fun. Hope you can find your new pooch sometime soon mate. Good luck.

    And yeah , thats the weirdest looking Wolfy i've ever seen LOL. Hope the poor bugger finds his furever home soon though.

    I am not a big dog person but I love Ridgebacks. I looked after one for a friend and she was so loving and so much fun! Have known a few since then and they are wonderful dogs. My friend got one for free froma breeder who was going to euthanaise the pup because it lacked a proper ridge (OMG) turned into a beautiful loving dog.

    so council did a DNA test and you guessed it...dog wasn't a pitbull and was returned to him and no apology from Blacktown council either.
    See the Vic mob wouldn't accept DNA tests as proof of origin.

    I don't think NSW can just take a dog away for being a pitbull, there's a whole lot of hoops they have to jump through to get the dog declared and that can be appealed - the dog can be "temperament tested" and escape the declaration and restrictions.

    It does seem like this particular council staff member went outside of his? authority. In SA we have a council ombudsman who deals with stuff like that if complaining to the ward rep doesn't fix it.

    It's another reason why I keep my dog inside when I'm not home - the council can enter your back yard but they cannot enter your locked home.

    Thanks Sean...friends RR is no trouble and you wouldn't know she was there... at 7 yrs old has no health problems either...she mouths my fingers just like my Dobe did. Other than that I know nothing about them and haven't seen any pure RR in pounds or rescue of late...maybe not as common as GSDs and Rotties.

    It seems there are a few "Irish Wolfhounds" at Blacktown pound of late and a couple of "Ridgebacks" too...I think they should buy a Dog book it might help. Imagine living a very long way from the pound...you ring and ask "Do you have any Irish Wolfhounds" to which they say "Yes we do" then you travel all that way only to find they wasted your time.

    Blacktown pound is to be either upgraded or rebuilt somewhere else...so we're told. In our local newspaper one councilor has a wonderful idea...lets go overseas on a Holiday...I mean a "Fact finding mission" to see what pounds are like in other countries.

    We'll stay in the best hotels eat the finest food with our partners too of cause and the rate payers can foot the bill. I've got a better Idea for our councilor...not long ago the R$PCA (that mega rich private origination that always cries poor) opened a multi million dollar pound...I mean shelter at Rutherford here in NSW. Why not go there...it's much cheaper and you can drive or simply use Google.

    LOL ....forgot to mention my Ridgeback was listed as a Rottweiler cross Staffy

    He too lacked a ridge. But apparently the ridge is actually a fault of sorts. So i guess my boy was just perfect. Yep ......he sure was.

    Gawd our council can barely afford to pay the councillors anything close to what would cover their hourly rate for the stupidly long meetings with the even stupidly longer agendas (often well over 300 pages and close to 20MB to download).

    No overseas trips for them.

    There's a dog holding facility and then the dogs go directly to the RSPCA in our council area and further north - they all go to the AWL.

    I got the dog I have now from the AWL having traipsed out there (took me 1.5 hours driving) to look at a 6 month old red heeler female - I phoned before I went to make sure it was still there - yes it was they told me. I get there - and the dog had been adopted days ago and it was a boy dog.

    But they had two blue heeler x puppies... and I did have a slight colour preference for blue... so I took the friendly one of those. If I hadn't gone - I never would have seen the puppies - they never get listed on their website.
