    She's gorgeous, I can see a lot of breeds in there... her face makes me think of a Ridgeback of similar breed. The side on shot her body looks a bit AmStaffy but it's hard to tell at her current weight.

    thanks crested. I thought ridgeback to when I saw her too.

    A quick update Kali has been for a vet check today and I am glad i did. I found out that Kali is is more sensitive to grass, has long wick in her nails and looks like she may be a dog prone to ear infections. While she didn't have an ear infection her ears were red and waxy so she would have most like gotten one in the near future is we hadn't caught it today.

    She has to have her ears cleaned out once a week with a steroid based cleaner and due to her sensitivity to grace she needs to have a course of anti histamines and steroids to help reduce the sensitivity or at least her itchiness on her tummy.
    She is now officially upto date with all vaccinations, been wormed, flea treated, nails clipped, tested neg for heart worm and got her needle for that to.

    As for her weight she currently weighs 22.2 kg and I have been recommended to aim for about 27kgs and try not over 30kg or she will be over weight but the Vet is not overly worried at this stage.

    Other than that she will soon be sporting a new name tag by the end of the next week and is pretty healthy.

    She is currently passed out on her doggie bed at my feet and snoring. she has had a big day and made her new mum very proud of her. I look forward to many more years with her

    A colleague of mine had a dog that was diagnosed with a grass allergy. But it later turned out that her reaction to grass was caused by an allergy to a food additive. She switched her to different dry food and a raw diet and it got better.

    my vet said that is a possibility to but he thinks it is grass because she is only itchy on her belly and paws, and we have also changed her food when she arrived. Kali will have a follow up appointment to be be sure tho
