Sometimes you get that call you don't want to get.
The one from a puppybuyer, telling you that thing isn't working out.
I got this call a few months ago.
A puppy that I have sold that has some issues. Temper issues that is.
He's showing a behaviour that in my opinion is not acceptable for a dog.
At lest not for a dog that we want to function in a "normal" household and among people.
Today I got the second call.
Things had not become any better ...
The breed is not the most social of breeds, that we know. But, they shall not be agressive.
This one ...
Well, I have been listening to what his owner has told me, and also what a man with years of experience with workingdogs (militarydogs) that has met the dog.
Based on that, I think this guy has so much built up that to become a functional dog will need so much work and a very very very experienced owner with both time and opportunities to work with him and be able to "protect" the dog from situations that can make him snap. And, unfortunately, I don't think I will find that person. I know that they exists out there, but, they don't usually want these kind of dogs.
In a perfect world, the perfect person would show up and give this guy the home he needs.
But, we don't live in a perfect world.
It's a very sad situation for me as a breeder.
As a breeder we try doing our best to breed up good dogs, but sometimes it just goes wrong. Even if everything looks great on paper, things can happen.
And, this time it did ...
It's even worse for the owner of course.
Because you become so found of theese little dogs. Even if they don't turn out how we wanted them to. They do take a big piece of our hearts.
And I know his owner has done his best for him ❤️
But sometimes, that isn't enough ...
have been at the vet today and had their eyes checked.
Anne has PPM iris-iris mild
Matthew has PPM iris-iris visible
Gilbert, Marilla ang Jospehine are al Clear.
On Wednesday, Iridonia will move to her new home.
On Friday it's Josephines turn to move.
On Saturday or Monday - not sure wich day yet, Devaron will move. He's gotten a new name already: Ludde.
Marilla needs a home where she can use her head. Sent-work would fit her perfectly I think.
Matthew needs a place where he can learn that working together with people is the most profitable for him.
Gilbert - well, he's an allrounder with a great amount of charm. I really like him, and must admit that I'm considering to sell him on breedingterms or find a "fórvert" to him.
Today the StarWars litter is 8 weeks old.
We have been to the vet for eyescreening today.
*MA Tatooine has PPM iris-iris
*MA Iridonia has a hint of PPM on her left eye. The vet thinks it will be gone when she's a bit older. She also has mild CRD. This will not affect her sight in any way.
You can read about CRD here.
*MA Devaron was clear.
*MA Starkiller Base was clear.
Today Tatooine left with her new owner, Solveig.
She will be called Millie.
We wish them all the best :-)
July 1 the StarWars litter was tested.
Not any big surprise, but as always I think it's good to know that I'm right :-)
On July 13 we will have PAT on the Anne With an E puppies.
