So I have been reading for a few days and recently joined, you may have noticed me posting a little bit around the place. I thought I would make formal introductions. My name is Lee, I am 22 (almost 23) living in Logan (mid way between Brissie and the Gold Coast) in QLD. I currently work as a Recuitment consultant and have for 4 years but want to pursue a career in Veterinary Nursing or something similar working with animals. I have in the past volunteered for the Animal Welfare League and RSPCA so I am very aware of the issues of "unwanted dogs/cats". I am happy to have found a group of like minded people to share stories and information with. I have 2 dogs and I will introduce them below with pictures!
Keira my 3 yo Bullmastiff x Ridgeback X Bull Arab etc etc lol. Keira is a sweetie, small for her breed at around 30 kilos. Keira unfortunately has bad hip dysplasia and at 10 months old she had to have a luxating patella fixed. As a result Keira walks around swinging her butt, it looks pretty funny. She also recently recovered from a bout of Pancreatitis. Other than this Keira loves to chase water from the hose, she attends hydrotherapy and loves to swim and chase the balls in the water, she also likes chasing cats (my bad, unfortunately she was never really socialized with cats) she is a little over excitable and will still jump around like a crazy when she sees me. She loves anything that squeeks. She loves people (I think deep down she thinks she is a person) and she can be a bit silly in general. Here are some pictures of Keira puppy and adult.
ANNDD Phoenix my new baby, 15 week old Amstaff X (Pittie whichever you prefer) she has green eyes, tan(fawn) colouring with tiger stripes(brindle lol) Phoenix is currently attending puppy school and is enrolled to do several other courses with our fantastic trainers Urban Dog Training. She is pretty smart and is learning very quickly. She is a bit spoilt and rotates between sleeping on my bed and sleeping in her crate. She LOVES chasing her tail, she can't get enough of it. She has recently discovered the joys of sticking her head out the car window and trying to eat the air. She is being socialized at puppy play school and she lives with 5 people, 4 cats and 2 other dogs oh and a bird, so she has lots of company (and will hopefully NOT chase cats!). We are still learning about each other but she is gorgeous both inside and out and I can tell she will be a lovely dog, I cant wait to see how she turns out but I don't want her to grow up . Phoenix pictures below!
So that is that. Thank you for reading.
Please introduce yourself and your dogs in the comments so I know who everyone is! Thanks
