I know people say that you should not give dogs free to good home, but there are some people seriously kidding themselves, in the current climate with so many rehoming dogs to make ends meet, as to how much they want for their older dogs.

There is one person rehoming 3 separate Golden retrievers, and asking £800 each. I mean, unless they are genuinely made of gold how can they ask that much, that is at least 1/2 as much again as any other golden on the site (well at least as far as I looked down the site organised in distance from me.

I noticed this I wanted to rehome a French bulldog as I got a littlen I personally thought anything big would be a greater risk to my littlen we viewed one which was 800 quid and 3 yr old not neuted not even a particuly good example of the breed the lady was saying I'd much rather it went to a family then a breeder and I made clear I had no intention of breeding from her she would be a companion for my other dog as well as a spoilt pet and offerd her 700 and told her to keep the papers as I would be neutering her she said shed rather hold out for more as far as I'm concerned she was a twat in that situation I'd rather give my dog away then them get constantly bred,I could have easily paid 800 but didn't out of principal then we bought another two year old frenchy which was apparently good with other dogs although it attacked my other dog about 6 times a day attacked my misses mums Labrador and bite her brother needless to say that had to go bk after a week hence me ending up with a pup I thought rehoming would be easier but not for me

Ooh! Happy birthday Winston! Love me and Buster xx :cheers:

Trying to type a reply here on the laptop, and trouble decides he wants to come up for a cuddle...so had to grab the camera!

Yep, that'd be my foot he's using as a pillow! :devil:

Gotta love some of the odd positions that mutt gets himself into! :lol2:

Wow, and to think i saw your dog when he was just a little ad on Preloved lol!!

Have to say I could have nightmares about a velociraptor length dew claw like he has on his front paw there, Are you not afraid of him using it like a flick knife against you.

Is it just my dogs that stand in front of you in the morning when you are on the side of the bed working up the energy to stand, then they decide to stretch and stick all their front nails into your undefended toes?

Christie_ZXR 15-07-2012 07:35 PM

Ah! Was it you that found the preloved ad? I couldn't remember who it was! Thank you :2thumb:

We sort of "impulse-bought" him after only meeting him once, and I'm soooo glad we did! He's totally perfect! :flrt: and the previous owner is lovely, she was really honest about the problems and reason for rehoming. (Buster doesn't "do" other dogs, he was fighting with his brother)

I think the claw maybe looks longer than it is in that photo, just woken a stroppy pooch up to have a look at it...:lol2: I'll ask the o/h when he last trimmed them when he gets in.

As for claws in the toes, Buster doesn't do that, he prefers to jump on you to have a stretch and dig the claws into your belly...!! :devil: Luckily he's walked at least 4 times a day on pavements, so the claws naturally keep fairly trimmed. Still hurts though!! What with him and that bloody cat of mine that likes to grab a clawfull of your hair and tug it to wake you up for breakfast, mornings aren't always nice!! :bash:

Cheers, he looks a happy dog my dogs are always sneeking on my sofa with me

I think Buster reckons he's a cat.... sooo cuddly! He "claimed" the rocking chair in the lounge as his as soon as he moved in by curling up into a ball and falling asleep on it! He now knows "on your chair" if we're eating or whatever and don't want him bugging us :D

Christie_ZXR 20-07-2012 04:07 PM

Finally just caught that bloody one show on "dangerous" dogs on iplayer.

Makes my blood boil!! :devil:

I'd quite like to lock that flippin woman up in the back of a van!
Not too sure what I'd do with her once I had mind you, drive around for a bit then let her out again probably! :lol2: But it's the thought that counts!

On a nicer note, Buster got his claws chopped yesterday! So he's not so vicious looking now! :no1:
