    Default Hi Everyone

    Morning I am an animal lover in general with a couple of cats, one is a certifiable nut case called Melika and the other is a window licker (literally) called Abby, a rescue dog called Scrap that we have had for 13 years, he is an old man now at 15, as well we have new addition of a beautiful pure bred brindle bull terrier called Zeke who is 21 weeks old, My husband and I hope to get more involved in the dog community in general and look forward to chatting to people with similar and not so similar interests

    Hi Kdee! Your Bull Terrier pup is gorgeous! I love that breed

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

    Hi Jadielee, he is isn't he, although I could be biased ,we looked at the breed for 15 years before finally deciding we were in the right point in our lives to care for one, BT's are a great breed if you have the training time to put in to them and a big lap for them to sleep on.

    I've always loved them (even though most people I know are like eeew, they so ugly) But yeah, don't have the time available for the training (I find it hard enough with my two, which is probably why they can be so naughty) or the monies to get one from a breeder! Maybe when I am old and retired!

    Well I am not that old yet (41) but I do own my own business and my husband is about to leave his job, our 18 year old son says he has piggy eyes and a head like a door wedge but we still catch him being all sooky over Zeke when he thinks we can't see him. We fully own Zeke and yeah they aren't cheap but wouldn't be without him, he spends 4x 15 minutes a day training us so it's not to bad, but you constantly have to think training around them, so far he is training us well

    Yay congrats!!

    I love BT's (although I would never own one, I do not have the patience to out persist a persistant BT) and I know a couple very very lovely, well adjusted, awesome BT's.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Welcome.

    Your puppy looks adorable. I recently got another rescue dog. She was about 8 months when I got her and we're enjoying training eachother too.

    Hi I think your dogs are beautiful I was looking at the pics of them before, Zeke isn't the typical BT he is pretty chilled out but still needs constant thinkers around him to keep him in check and he repays with lots of cuddles and "I love you" looks

    Don't let the looks fool you he can be a cheeky bugger at times, what sort of rescue dog have you got? ours is a Aus silky terrier x with umm a dog lol at least I think he is, he thinks he is human though, it took us about two years of rehabilitation with Scrap, around 8 months of that was spent with no one able to lift their feet off the ground when around him, someone A hole had used him literally as a football

    Scrap is one lucky dog that he found you.

    My rescue is the "bitsa special of the week". I honestly have no idea what she is. Well, plenty of ideas, but I will never be sure. May have some kelpie in her, maybe staffy, maybe even basenji... She's a medium-sized brindle dog with a head that looks too small for her body and a body that looks too long for her legs and people tell me she looks like a Tasmanian Tiger.

    She was treated well before I got her and I am very grateful for her foster carers who did such an awesome job at socialising her. Her worst vice is jumping up and mouthing, but we're working on it and she's getting better.
