as the title state's, this is a thread for getting the puppies out (pun intended)
I'll kick it off with our's...
Spike - He is a Shar pei x Ridgeback x Staffy, loves people, loves play time, loves any one with food and commands
Hana - She is a pure bred Shiba Inu (they're not exactly what 'I' would classify as a dog) shiba's are virtually a domesticated fox, theyre timid, shy and disobedient, they sleep all day and avoid human contact like the plague...
these are our dogs sleeping in sync
this is how they stared out the font window when they wanted to go for a W-A-L-K
and this is how spike used to sleep on the couch (when he still had the privilege before LO came along - theyre both banned from the couches/beds, main bedroom where LO will be now)

i wouldnt call him big, he is only 27-29kg. my cousin has an 18wk old kelpie x collie...my god, that pup is too smart. my cousin takes it to work. It greets the customers and then sits in its corner until told otherwise, it wont take food/treats from anyone other than my cousin, and it does EXACTLY as its told.
hopefully your new pup will be just as well behaved *fingers crossed*.
Spike was a rescue dog when we got him. He was only 18 months old, and this is when he was desexed [too late] and had all of his vaccs updated.
...Unfortunately, I underestimated him, and he tore shreds off of my forearm when I tried to reclaim a fresh marrow bone that I had just given him (trying to get him used used to being submissive to people and sharing with other dogs).
BUT...fortunately(with me being me), my instant response was to put him back in his place with a good clip behind the ear, with the (massive) marrow bone I had in my hand. I hope people dont judge me and think its cruel. I'm glad it was me and not someones child...
Ever since, he has been an extremely well behaved dog. Myself and Kat (my wife) have spent HOURS upon hours, training him. He will now 'shake' with both separate paws on command, he sits, drops, rolls over, sits up on his hind legs, stays, comes, drops and even speaks on command. Amd he is so SO gentle when given food now
He had exposure to children before we brought our LO - Evelyn home. He just loved them!..he was more than happy for them to grab his tail, tug at his floppy/drooly lips, and pinch his soft/silky ears.
I did the suggested thing and brought home some of our LO's outfits while mum and bub were still in hospital...he literally inhaled it. Ever since, he has follewd her everywhere, especially when she cries (this is when he struts in and sniffs out what is going on). He has a very 'focused' eye on whoever new is holding her lol.
all in all, awesome pooch.
How is/ has everyone elses dogs reacted to newborns?
