My daughter asked me just before christmas if I would have her dog for a while as it kept attacking her cats. She would rehome the cats and have the dog back. She has now asked me to re home the dog as she can't face coping with it. Needless to say we have got used to the dog, a boxer/bull mastiff bitch and we are going to keep her. My last three dogs have come to me in these odd ways!!!! Sadly the last one died last year. All of them have got to a good age with me, the springer was 17, the belgian collie cross 13 and the rottie/mastiff 14.
So, Sabre, yes sabre, is now living with us. We took her to the vets today for jabs, wormer, flea stuff and to weigh her. She is a little overweight but everything else if fine and she will be speyed in three months time.
The only problem I have is that the neighbours have cats so I have to take her out in the garden on a lead as she will attempt to jump the walls to get at them and she also is very aggressive to other dogs. Absolutely lovely indoors with humans.
She is very strong and i have bought a haltie collar so that I can have more control over her but my daughter does most of the walking.
We are going to get in a dog trainer to give us some advice about tempering her behaviour towards other animals. She is only about fiveyrs old and in the house she seems to be quite obedient.
We were going to get another rescue dog at some point so it was on the cards anyway.
I have missed the rottie/mastiff, Buster since he went and its nice to have a doggie to cuddle up with on the sofa and keep me company as I am on my own quite a lot .
