Django

This is a link to the new dog that Neil and I adopted from a rescue on Tuesday. His name is Django, he is the sweetest thing. Very loving, and well behaved. He is great with our grandkids. His previous owners refused to get him out of the pound, so a rescue got him. For the life of us we can't figure out why someone wouldn't want this dog. Oh well, their loss is our gain! :)

He looks a bit iffy to me. But I am no fan of any of the pit or bullbaiting breeds (except Boxers). The white colouration often indicates an actual or potential hearing problem too. But if he is as good in practice as you say, then you have an excellent new friend (and my guess is, defender).

http://www.flickr.com/photos/lorcanotway/4009165275/ Here is my new little guy ( see the song above, Damian's flea song...) He came to us, Oct 13th from a rescue shelter. He had been used as a bait dog in a dog fighting club which was busted on Coney Island. He spent six months in the shelter, where they did a great job at getting him used to people again. He is not used to other dogs yet, may never be... but he is a good fellow and a fast learner. He's a short haired, long legged Jack Russell. Very loving and loyal little guy.

He has not barked since he came here, great for a theater dog, as he spends much of his day in the theater with me - but it might mean they cut his vocal cords, as they often do in fight clubs. I've taken him to the vet, and he is being treated for a few minor things, but next visit I will have him examined for that...

Well, Damian "Dai-bach" and I send our best to all the new dogs out there, especially the rescued pooches...

I've always had purebred dogs, mainly Weimaraners which I dearly love. We have gotten our last two from Rescues......But last year, Karen was driving home and came across a black dog franticall running back and forth in the middle of the highway. Long story, but he came home with her and we were unable to locate the owner in the area where he was found so assume he was dumped......Why, I have no idea.

Neil and Christina......our guy looks like a black version of Django! Very expressive eyes and a charming and playful, generally wonderful, dog! CONGRATS TO YOU!!!!!

Its a great thing to do, to rehome from animal rescue centres. We have two ponies, Hamish and Betty.

Betty was rescued from a particularly cruel owner who has since been sent to prison for his treatment of her and her two companions. The charity who saved them decided the best thing was to split them up as when one became anxious all three did, so we took Betty. She's completely black except for a white star and slightly taller than a Shetland, a dainty little thing. We've had her three years now and she will follow Hamish over to see you (we've had him 10 years), but you have to do everything very slowly and make sure she can see you all the time, she doesnt like being surprised. The charity come to check on her every 6 months and Emma our field officer is very pleased with her progress.

Its lovely when Betty comes to you in the field and sniffs your hand and you know she is beginning to trust you.

good on ya for adopting them, django, looks very cute, but like he knows it so can get away with more cheeky stuff.

when we rescued our little one from an alleyway in notts, in winter. we left a note to say we hadn't stolen the dog and left our mobile number but no one rang.
we took him to our local park, let hm off and he didn't go very far from us, noe has he since.

rescue dogs are the most loyal and loving because of what they have been through.
although keith, after keith donnelly) would try the patience of a saint he is still the most loving thing i have ever seen.

i totally agree, someones loss is our gain.

neil,i hope you and your new family member are very happy and have lots of lovely cuddles and play times.

lots of love

Tonight as I came home on the train from lecturing there was a girl (maybe not 20?) and a man probably slightly younger in conversation opposite me - and he had a russet Staffordshire bitch and she a 9 week old red and white Staff puppy. I have to say that the puppy was wholly adorable - and both dogs probably more intelligent than their possessors whose speech habits were so slipshod (and evidently London) that a lot of the time their meanings were undetectable. This was not race dialect, but simply uncouth south London English.

Ho hum. Bonnie my late small Great Dane and Benjamin the Border-cross were both rescue. When he shuffles off I might get onto Pointer Rescue. There is something about Pointers (by which I mean so-called "English Pointers", rather than GSPs GWPs Spinones or Braques.

I just got a dog that was a fighting dog and she was also beaten. Poor thing is a mess she is so submisive and scared of everything but aother dog. She hates other dogs and I cant eve take her for a walk without her wanting to fight another dog. She is ok with my other two dogs but at first she really didnt like them either. Will she always be this way? I love her and want her happy but I really dont think she is.

She will probably always be a risk. Sorry.

Some training centres may be able to help with socialisation.

Guest Reggie,
       It is truly a shame that people do this to dogs. Dogs that have been fought can be rehabilitated, but you will need the help of a dog behavioralist, and as Richard said you will most likely have to be very vigilant with her around other dogs and children. I urge you to seek professional help with her. Sometimes the saved dogs turn out to be the best. Best of luck :)

Yup, my wee dog goes completely simple at the sight of other dogs. At best, I get him to sit, he shakes in every limb, fighting his instinct to attack... today he snaped at me, in absolute frantic fear at another dog who was too close. But, we are working together, he and I ... and his trainer, I see him making an effort, when he is good, sitting waiting for another dog to pass... poor guy. I find it hard to forgive in my heart, those who did this to him...
