    Thanks Nic!

    and

    No. Never even had 2 dogs together before. When I was looking for my 2nd dog I originally wanted to get a Stafford. I was told to get female-male as 2 males will fight and 2 females will too. I do think it depends on the individual dog, just as long as they're introduced properly, and watch their behaviour closely while being introduced. I was told by some that Misi and Lola wouldn't work.....and they're fine.
    Are you thinking of getting another one Nic?

    No problems Foursocks

    Aussie Floyd - yes, backyard breeder! (someone i knew, but didn't think much of). Some pups were deformed so they got a hammer blow. Riko was going to end up the same way. All he had was.....can't think what it's called now....where they have a split lip-kids get it tooAnyway, his was small and after I got him i took him to the vet to make sure he could eat ok etc. He was fine! He was 6 weeks old, I was 13. He was my buddy for 11 years.

    OMG those poor puppies, its beyond me how anyone can be so cold & cruel to hammer blow puppies, makes me angry & cry just thinking about it

    What Riko had is "Cleft Lip"

    Cleft Lip and Palate In Dogs

    Did you know that dogs can be born with a cleft lip and palate? Most of us associate this devastating birth defect to humans, but it happens just as well in the animal world. A cleft lip or palate can occur when the bone and tissue in the roof of the mouth do not develop properly during pregnancy.

    This condition is primarily a genetic defect and is hereditary, however it can also be caused by the mother taking certain drugs while pregnant, as an example, treating a pregnant dog with corticosteroids, excessive vitamin A, and exposure to insecticides during pregnancy is known to cause cleft lip in puppies. In addition, pregnant dogs suffering from malnutrition or infections have a higher risk of having puppies with this birth defect.
    While dogs are not as self conscious of the cosmetic aspects of a cleft lip, the health risks can be significant. Puppies born with a cleft lip need to be watched closely. Nursing for a puppy with a cleft lip can be difficult, which may result in regurgitation, aspiration pneumonia, and malnutrition. Brachycephalic (nose pushed in) breeds such Bulldogs, Pugs, Pekinese, and Boston Terriers run the highest risk for cleft lip in dogs.
