    'This name is invalid', sorry that I put you on the spot ! I was just interested, after all the pages on this particular thread - whether you all did actually get a pup !


    Not that I am biased at all - have a look here - for info on Wallace and Grommit:

    No worries.
    Thanks for the link - I didn't know that shelter existed. I've always liked GSPs, so I think I might have to pay Wallace and Gromit a visit.

    If a had to use just ONE word to describe GSPs it would be - HILARIOUS.

    p.s. my comment re careers overseas is because my brothers' mate got
    a job with a top firm on Wall Street.

    It was called "Lehmann Brothers". lol

    This is a bit off this topic but can anyone recommend a medium sized dog that doesn't require high solid fencing.

    When we lived in our old house we had a red heeler and a collie mix. The collie mix was fine though our red heeler escaped numerous times. He wasn't fixed so he would go out to meet with nearby a female, when he was ready to come home he would Jump back over the fence again lol, a bit off topic but wanted to share that.

    I think as long as your dog is fixed it should be okay if you get a breed not know to escape. Collies, Staffies, labradors and many mixes you will find at a shelter can be good if you're looking for one that's unlikely to jump a fence.
    There are so many breeds you could consider that I also think you should choose a few favorites and then see if any of those suit your environment and lifestyle.

    If you happen to have your heart set on a certain breed then I think you should wait until you get a higher fence or have them as an indoor dog, so long as they get enough exercise on a lead

    Some breeds are more likely to try to escape than others. Some are better jumpers than others. And some are better climbers or diggers than others. Size is by no means the only factor here. But the key is always training and exercise! Without those 2, any dog of any breed might turn into a Houdini.

    Not too bad. I just realized that it's almost been two months since I posted here so I guess it is time for an update.

    Anyway, I've lost count of how many times I've been to the RSPCA in the last few weeks, but I'm just waiting for something good to come up. We've JUST missed out on a couple of adoptions on separate occasions; a labrador and a smooth collie they were. I'll probably have another look this weekend...maybe today.
    Oh yeah - and we're on the waiting list for a Brittany puppy that will be ready in a few months, but we're a fair way down the list so that's not a certainty.

    Rosey you might get more response if you start a new thread with your question.

    But I too would recommend a greyhound. Too lazy to try and escape!!
