    If people are after a hypo-allergenic dog I can heartily recommend poodles. Myself and my family have kept poodles my whole life, they are just lovely dogs to own. They do require training as they are very intelligent and can be stubborn but I've always found that to be rewarding. I walk mine daily for 1/2 an hour and longer on weekends.


    This is my lovely girl Ruby

    Despite them being hypoallergenic, I am unfortunately still allergic to them... :( But I LOVE poodles!!!

    :eek: That is a true tragedy. I don't think I've ever heard of someone being allergic to poodles

    I didn’t look through this thread but my favourite breed is the Staffordshire bull terrier even though they are in fact dogs.
    I love to own again and breed them some day. Be way better then reptiles. Truth.

    The half grown ruler of the yard.

    She doesn't let my husband's dog near the kids or I and he's got a good 20kg on her lol.
    Very much a guardian.

    Her parents were monsters so I look forward to her also getting that big

    Big afternoon at the vet with my pride and joy "Alaska" (pedigree Jack Russell Terrier)... Did himself a minor mischief working a fox underground. Wrenched a dew claw, I didn't notice until about an hour and a half later when he kept licking his paw. Wasn't overly bothering him at all, was still tearing around and wanting to work. Jack's have a very high pain tolerance but I didn't wanna risk an infection or it getting injured further, I went to clip it back but it was cracked and split right to the bone and he was getting very growly and agitated with me inspecting, (typical Jack, can't get near his paws while he's conscious, he'd rip your hands clean off at your shoulders.) So I called the vet, he needed to be knocked out to remove it, not ideal on a Sunday (after hours fees) but he's my best mate. The vets even muzzled him when he was under just incase he came around while they were workin on him, lol.

    This is the quietest and longest he's ever been still in his life.

    Sleeping beauty... 20 mins after giving him a tranquilizer he started to zonk out then they jabbed him with the anaesthesia and muzzled him and went to work.

    All better... entire nail removed, no bandage for this guy as he chews them off. Lol

    He'll be ready to go back to work tomorrow. :)
