Arrival Story: I had an old Englsish Spring who pined for a new play mate, I also had people living in my house who were not very nice and I always wanted Bloodhound and when I see Fred advert was a Bloodhound Cross GSD I thought what I would like . When I child we had a Basstethound who was very good with children the smaller the child is the better he was very good with babys this is one type of dog I would say is idea for some one who is about to have baby you would not go wrong with.
I would say Fred is not a dog you should go for if you have never had a hound type of dog they will walk all over you.
They are very loving but if you a big softy they have you round their little (Big) paw.
Bio: When Fred was six month old he found 4 teenages sleeping out over night a few weeks before it had been sub zero.
This morning walk was at 04:00 in the morning we were walking around like normal when Fred started to more a sheep dog.
We were walking around on the the stop of the hill the Teenages they were at 55 dregee angal, no moon light very dark just Winchester street lights.
Fred got one of the Teenagers blet with a large metal buckal,and come running over to me with it. I said are you ok They said your dog wroke them up three teenagers girls were 13 years old and the the boy was 16 years.
I called the police to let them know and as all the phone call are recorded I was went to great pain to say about how Fred was a Bloodhound Cross GSD most dogs would not of found them. The police only wanted to know about the 13 years shameful. Fred uses blooth sences wind and tracking.
This dione by him being full streath on his back legs with his paw of the floor and then his nose goes down and he off at full plet.
If he want to get some were he get theirs open doors he can open all my doors in my house and most of the are fire doors.
He is very strong and powerful.
One day I went to the local the food shop when I was comming back with Fred their were a group of hoodies they did not Fred they came up to to try and say try to timmer-date me next thing they see was Fred was in their Faces They very soon backed away. When Fred stands on his back feet he is over 6ft tall.
Fred pet hate People on mobil phones, Hoodies, Some dogs walking with their owner. Some dogs he sings to them never manager to work out this. Workman with bright yellow jackects, Postman, Window Clears.
2010 This year has been a year of going to the Vet for a skin poblems
I paid out for a skin test and it came back with nothing . I new their was something was wrong I have this policey that if a dog is not eating his / her food and not waging their tail I would put a dog to sleep. Fred was very unhappy the vet was not expecting to say I only have one choice.
So we put Fred on 5 sterods and I see how that goes over the weekend
after two days I could see that was not working I went for a long walk with Fred and went over what the Vet had been saying I thought about trying to give Fred Hay Fever Tablet I found one when I got home and a gave it to him within 20 mins he was leaving himself along.
When I next see the vet I told her what I had done. Being on Steorders would cut Fred life very short so we talk about how to cut them down. I put him 4 got tryied to 3 but he and himself again so I put him back on 4 + 1 Hay Fever Tablelet I did this for 6 weeks and then I tried again this time time it was working and over a I got Fred down to 1 and 1 Hayfever and when I next see the I got the Fred of the Steriods and all he has is one Hay fever tablelet. I have have to get one Steriods on a odd day but know he has not had a Sturiods for a few weeks. I did mangage to get Fred of a Hay Fever tablet for one 24 hours but this was done by giving him a lablet late one night so he could go 24 hours and I had to give him another one at 06:00 in morning. So if I have to put him in kennals for one day with out worrying about the tablets.
I never thought a Hay Fever Tablelet would be the driffernt between keeping a long alive.
When I went to Tescos to get some more hay Fever Tablelet I asked the Chemist a question he thought they were for me I said no they are for my dog he could not tell me if it was for a dog I would have to see a vet . I said these Have Fever table are my dogs life I not putting him to self and stromed of and got the Hay fever table. The only reason why we can not give dog human table is EU Laws I never Voted for the EU.
I have a very happy dog know will post message as and when I need to Posted Dec 31 2010 message
