Default New puppy thread - I guess Im a dog owner now...

Man I never thought we'd have a dog. Our middle son (8yo) has been allergic since birth to dogs. Their hair and saliva. Hes been tested and going in for allergy shots for two years leading up to our move. And out of our three kids, hes the one that truly loves dogs. Our other two are scared of big dogs and get a little skittish around them generally. So after all the allergy therapy, I cant say hes cured but he can tolerate being in a house with a dog. And hes been begging for a puppy, so we said what the hell. We "shopped" for a puppy - yes I know shame on us. Well didnt matter, fucking even lab puppies are $1200 down here in FL. I wanted a german shepard, but the size was going to be too much for our young kids. So we went to all the shelters. Surprise surprise, they are all filled with pit mix dogs. Nobody wants those poor pit mixes because they have that pit look. Our HOA wont allow pits or pit mixes in the whole subdivision.

Well after some searching, we found an adoption event last weekend at our local pet smart. Several puppies going to be there from several rescues from around the area. So we stopped in. Most were there, but the young ones were still on the way. And as they were bringing them in, the very last one that was carried in was our girl. 12 week old pure bred Blue Heeler. Shes absolutely gorgeous. My wife who is not a dog person was like thats the one. She is a stunner. Everyone that sees her out in public stops and asks what kind of dog she is. Shes cotton ball soft and full of energy. What a find. $200 plus a few toys and some food, and shes ours. Meanwhile pure bred blue heelers of this caliber are like $2000 and up. We struck gold. Shes been with us over a week, and already almost potty trained. Shes good with the kids and humans in general, but very uppity around other dogs. Shes a cattle dog, so they like to herd shit. And my kids are feeling that when they run her around. But shes sweet and doesnt nip harder than a play bite. On to the pics.

Congrats on a rescue instead of feeding into the terrible breeders. Adorable pup!

Wow, that is a beautiful animal. You really did strike gold!

Being a rescue, you're lucky she behaves herself. I got a rescue back in December and he was an absolute nightmare to deal with for months. It took a lot of patience and many months of training to get him to calm down and be normal.

I've had a couple rescue animals now and I've always wished I could have known what their previous life was like. Did they have loving owners? Were they abused? How long were they on the street? Unfortunately, we'll never know.

Nice dog.

Make sure to train it right away. Blue heelers are natural herders and will try to herd the children and other animals fyi. They also can become very protective which is good and bad. Good for the family, bad for visitors, welcomed or unwelcomed.

Nah. This ones a keeper.

My son is doing great. Hasnít needed his inhaler with her around and heís been licked by her and wrestled with her a bunch, no reaction. Looking good.

One thing, sheís absolutely destroying our cat. The cat is also a female and was an alpha cat until the dog showed up. Not sure what to do. The dog is relentless with tackling the cat and trying to rip her head off. The cat has claws still but is just getting dominated.

Usually keeping the separated is best. Feeding them on opposite sides of a closed door and then over time open it. Straight exposure is never good and will upset your car hugely.

Yeah make sure the cat has an area she can go to without the dog being able to get there.

It's constant training but eventually they will get along and tolerate each other.

Cute pup but like was mentioned, you’re going to need to put in a ton of work training. They can be a handful if you don’t train them and give them an outlet for their energy, aka long long walks, or better yet see if you can find a place to allow the dog to actually herd.

Cute pup. Not digging the ball of energy. LOL. I myself would prefer a bulldog or something else that is lazy and hates the heat. LIKE ME!!

They can be. Then there are owners that you know that really make you think pet ownership is not worth it. I know its the owners fault most of the time, but still.
