Hello. My name's Kathy. I am on mid-north coast, NSW. I have always had a dog but just now have set my sights to raising a dog with much more family interaction. Our dogs have always been loved and well looked after but not until the recent, tragic death of our 10 yr old German Shepherd did I really learn that many ppl take their pets for granted. I believe we are probably guilty of that, too. Tigga was bullet proof, a big baby and always came back for love even if we just swore at him LOL ... As an animal lover I can never say no to beautiful eyes. Always know what they want, and they get it.
Tomorrow I am driving to Newcastle to collect a 12month old crossbreed dog that I fell in love with from the Pet Rescue website. We don't know what he is but he is a short haired dog with a brindly pattern. Everyone has their opinion from staffy to bull arab, to mastiff, dane, even labrador. Whatever he is, we hope he will be happy with us. I am planning to start obedience training on Monday, so I can learn his behaviours and teach him some manners. He will also accompany us to the beach from time to time for some extra family fun. Will put up some pics of him over the weekend.
