I have been thinking hard about Tony.
And I have come to the conclusion that I need to find him a family. I love the dog to death, and always will, but he is not us to show standard and I can not aford to keep a placement for a pet, that I need for my breeding programme. I am in no way in a hurry to sell him, so I will be waiting for the very best home for him. If you know anyone let them know He is $750, if anyone wants him pm me and I will give you my phone number.
I also have an older black and white boy, 2 years old, $400. Kept him to show but got a weekend job so didnt have the time and we still have his father so we dont really need him here. He is shy, but does love company and attention. He needs a family who will give him the space he needs to come around. He would suit being either an only dog or a second or third dog, not one of a croud.
This is the breed information...
We're happy little dogs, lively and alert and love to have a conversation with people (in our own special language). If you want to play, great, but if not, we will leave you alone and either sleep or amuse ourselves. Make sure you leave us some toys and chewies to keep us amused if you are not going to be around. We may bark if someone comes to the door, but we will love them once we know they are your friends (we are supposed to be aloof with strangers). We are very loving although we do maintain a certain amount of independence at times (some call this trait stubbornness but I think that is a bit harsh)! People say we have long memories - we never forget a friend or forgive an enemy.
We love being taken for walks on a lead and we can walk for miles if you want us to (even though we only have short legs). We must be exercised regularly, but if on occasions you can't take us for a walk then we will exercise ourselves by chasing over and under the furniture or around the yard and get our own exercise. We also love to ride in the car with you as long as we are secure in our crates (though not in hot weather).
We are very intelligent little dogs - some even call us schemers. We like to play games with you and other dogs, such as 'hidey' and 'chasey'. We will figure out how to open doors and get into your bag if you are hiding a special treat for us. We know how to get what we want - we just have to plead with our big dark eyes and you usually can't resist us. We love to learn new things, too, and we don't mind attending obedience classes.
We will give you a lot of love and it has to be returned. We are easy to look after and do not require much grooming except a brush, especially behind the ears, and a wipe of our eyes and face with a warm damp cloth. You will need to keep the fur between the pads of our feet trimmed but please don't trim my featherings. We don't have that usual doggy smell so you only need to bath us if we are going to a show or are dirty. Please keep my bowl full of fresh water.
NOTE: I am not opening this up to arguments, he is my dog, it is my decission, this is not easy. If you start to get iffy about things I will have this thread closed. Thank you.
