Default Our new baby: Nevis

Yesterday, I fulfilled a long term dream of mine and picked up a Czechoslovakian Wolfdog puppy. He's been superbly socialized by his breeder and is a really confident little guy.
Meet Nevis:





Storm keeps him in check, but he knows fine well she won't harm him, despite all the growling and posturing


..even when he steals Monkey and wouldn't give it back


...and occupies her bed


But who could resist that face?


It's still behind me, isn't it?

Storm resigning to her fate as a puppy pillow


Early morning play time


Nevis has has no fear and tries to beat up Storm

It's a pity I can only give the 1 like.

Well!!!!!! You kept that a secret, didn't you!!!!!

I wondered why there was no mention of another dog, although I thought it might be because Trigger was going to be so hard to replace, but you sneaky devil you!!!

Loving the puppy, loving the breed and loving the name!

I shall enjoy following his development. Brilliant Christmas present!!!

Ha ha, it was a secret to everyone until last minute, mainly because of all the bad stuff happening, I didn't want to curse it by getting too excited lol.

I contacted the breeder a while ago and she put me on the list after our first chat. Then when the puppies were born there were 3 males to 5 homes wanting a boy (all the girls were gone, too, and I definitely wanted a boy). Because I wasn't at the top of the list I was given the choice to either get my deposit back or wait for a litter from a bitch from the same line, which would have been next year, probably late spring, early summer.
I chose the latter, because I really wanted a pup from that breeder (hard to find decent ones for the breed in the UK) and a few days later she phoned me back saying, she went through her puppy files again and if I wanted one of her boys, he'd be mine.
He is fantastically socialized, not scared of anything (slept through me hoovering lol). He walks all over Storm and she's teaching him manners the doggy way lol. He's incredibly intelligent, too, already figured out "sit", so now every time he sees us with food he sits in front of us, giving us puppy eyes.

He'll never replace Trigger (hence why not another shepherd), but he'll hopefully be a great legacy.

Certainly no fear to get right in there



Storm eating Nevis




Getting cuddles


Not quite how we had the beds planned out


Puppy Power


Butter wouldn't melt (and one ear is starting to stand up)


These 2 pictures go with a funny story:
The first one, Storm was drinking out of Nevis' water bowl. Nevis walked over, pushed the bowl over, picked it up and ran off with it. It's his and does he know it lol.
The second one he'd just finished his dinner, but obviously decided he was still hungry and was doing his Oliver Twist impression. He's just too smart for his own sake lol:

Loving the beds!

He's certainly going to be a beauty - do you know what generation he is to the wolf?? Just curious you know!

It's good that he's got a good natured dog to keep him in line and remind him that he is a dog. I suspect he's going to try your patience as he grows - intelligent dogs can do that!

I've got his pedigree up to his great-great grandparents so he'll be pretty far removed from the high content lines?
He's put on 1 kg since last week and he looks bigger than at least one of his brothers. I reckon he'll take after his father who is quite tall (large GSD height, though not as hefty).

As for testing patience: I've always said with dogs like that you need a good sense of humour lol, but as his breeder said "The more you put in, the more you'll get out".

As with all dogs, that's the truth, but with the intelligent ones you have to put in more! Good job you're used to it!

Wow! He is changing!

They'll make a beautiful pair when he's fully grown!
