Well it's been interesting around at our place of late(3 weeks),
Long story short, I told the wife of a bundle of fluff at the local pound.
I was looking for a B but SHMBO said PLEASE and being a weak male I said OK:rolleyes:
So here is Sheba..
And a reminder of Bella, our Bx…
We were told at the pound She(Sheba) was a Shiba Inu.
To big and doesn't fitt the discriptions so the search began.
Next was the Vet who said Shepard cross, again I'm not convinced as the muzzle is wrong but I think they look at the colour.
Asked on a forum and got a few ideas from there.
So Alaskan Malamute.. doesn't quite fitt the bill but close.
Then Siberian Husky.. Shows most of the traights but I think she is slightly taller.
Guessing a Siberian Husky cross:eek: Not quite what we thought we had:)
So how do they get on?….getting there,thankfully.
When we went to see her we took Bella and they got on well, first hurdlle done.
Picked her up from the vet after her spading and brought her home half doped out so no neutral meeting spot possible.
Had a read through some treads like this one,..http://www.basenjiforums.com/showthread.php?t=4396
Some good input troups so thanks to all who responded in the past;)
So once Sheba came good it was on:eek:
Bella doesn't get on with males so I was happy to have two females but I questioned my thoughts at one stage.
Both are vieing for top dog and neither backs off, Both have lost some blood.
Bella being smaller was the worse, one small hole on her shoulder and has now got peirced ears.
But it hasn't stoped her though, she one tough little B
They both walk side by side and nose down when on lead for the daily walk.
Both push to be first into the back yard or in the back door.
Bella can't get to the bedroom anymore as Sheba has taken over that end of the house.
In return Bella has taken over the mat/cusion we bought for Sheba who happily sleeps on the timber floor till we go to bed when she moves to the hall and sleeps infront of the bedroom door.
All seems good at the moment so a little more time and things will settle.
As a side note had an interesting phone call last week, end result is below.
8;30...New dog digs under fence and take the B for a walk:eek:
9;30...Council gets told 2 wild vicious dogs running loose by lady with a small dog and pram.
10;00..Ranger turns up and my 2 girls head in different directions.
10;15..Sheba crawls back into yard and ranger who followed her fills the gap with timber ect..
16;45..Phone rings, a lady has Bella(home number on her tag) and we go get her.
Next day..Ranger rings to see if Bella is back and we get a warning only:o
So now Sheba is on a chain when we aren't home.
Building a fly wire for her soon so she can run the length of the yard during the day.
Pictures from the camping trip to finish with..
