    Looking for a med to large mixed breed or purebreed dog, short haired to give a great home to.

    My g/f and I just bought a house and are looking for a dog. We have a nice backyard and live in a community with lots of oppurtunity to go for long walks and play in parks. We dont have children and dont plan on any so the dog would become one of the family and treated with nothing but the best care.

    We would like to find a mix breed dog due to health concerns that may arise with purebreeds. We would accept a purebreed if it was from a registered breeder and guaranteed or a very good price.

    If you know of anybody with puppies for sale or to give away pls PM me or give them my email addy gipwebATyahooDOTca.

    Thx in advance

    G.i.P

    yeah ive tried to convince my g/f of that but she wants the "puppy experience" and getting a puppy at the spca is hard. I did see an american statford terrier but I couldnt convince her. She was a doll.

    Here she is if anyone is interested http://www.petfinder.com/pet.cgi?ac...=&preview=1&row=0&tmpl=&stat=

    Its alot easier to get one thats partially trained that to get a puppy thats going to run your life for the first year. Anyhow, people have to learn that for themselves. I have adopted 2 dogs so far. They are great animals

    You need one of my dogs... they are the sweetest things ever, and I'm pretty sure my girl is pregnant again...pups would be ready around new years.

    They had a litter last year, and many of you are familiar with my dogs or their puppies.

    Valley Bulldogs are the best friends ever!

    We adopted a 5 yr old Husky from the SPCA and it has been a great experience...he was always house trained, does tricks already and is super well behaved and calm. Great experience. Definitely adopt a dog!! You can give a great dog a really great home and it's cheaper than getting a dog from a breeder.

    Don't forget Pet Insurance, better to pay like $50 a year then risk spending thousands on surgery or meds if the pet gets sick.

    I totally support the adoption of pets from the SPCA, but i can't say that I'd have the bond with my dogs if I had gotten them there. I've been with my dogs since they were tiny little blind squirming balls of fur and guts, and I can say from experience, the puppy years, while frustrating at times, are great for having a dog conform to your personal lifestyle. My boy is the perfect companion for me, and he grew into that role, rather than us having to adapt to each other. To each his own, and I know tons of people that have had success with adoption, as well as a few who have met with uncontrollable dogs.

    Best of luck with your puppy hunt...and if you're interested in a Valley Bulldog puppy, let me know. I have tons of pics from their last litter, a year ago...and I'm still close with most of the pups and their owners. Everyone loves their dog, and I encourage them to bring them back to visit their parents because Carney and Pooh LOVE to play with their puppies. Ever see a 'daddy' dog? cutest thing ever...

    The male AmStaff is gone. We took him.
    He was so affectionate and loved right up to
    my girlfriend she couldnt resist.



    [​IMG]

    Our app was approved today and we pick him
    up on monday.

    Of course all this lead to a trip to the pet
    store and the purchase of a bed, a couple of
    toys, food, bowls, treats, bones, leash , coller,
    etc etc

    Ugh this just got expensive. Oh well we saved
    a dog .


    BTW if anybody wants bunny, I'll tell ya she
    is a great dog, very quiet and a little timid
    but I think she would come around nicely
    with some good love and attention. Seems
    she was used as a breeder and when she
    miscarriaged they put her out. When they
    spayed her she hermoraged and has had a
    hard go of it. I would have taken her but
    there was no convincing my girlfriend. Bunny
    sucked up to me but didnt want much to do
    with her.


    Pls if you have a good home go get Bunny
    and treat her right.
