Likes: His family mainly. He loved to run. One night he ran 27 kms along side the car. He refused to get back in the car until he felt like it.
Pet-Peeves: He had no time for other dogs outside a small circle of his friends. He was possibly the most aggressive dog I've had. He demolished the entire dashboard of my car once because another dog strayed too close to "his" car.
Favorite Toy: Sticks, bits of rag, tennis balls....
Favorite Food: Kangaroo meat
Favorite Walk: Anywhere in the bush
Best Tricks: Buster could peel a banana (video coming soon)
Arrival Story: We owned a Bull Terrier called Sally. She produced some litters when she mated with a local red Kelpie. He was a magnificent dog with a lovely temperament. One of the puppies I gave to a friend who lived some 300 kms away. Some years later he mated her to a pure Bully and Buster was the one I chose as a "return" gift. It was almost like having Sally back again.
Bio: Buster seemed to always be getting into trouble. He got away one day with his chain attached. We were most fortunate to have another couple of intelligent dogs who led us miles into the bush where Busters lead had become entangled with a tree.
He was hit by a train one day and in spite of searching for two days we could find no sign of his body. Two days later we discovered him lying on his carpet very bruised and sore. Very alive. He had struggled for about three kms to get home. We were all very emotional at this delightful re-union. Unfortunately, even though he appeared to recover from the train accident, the blow from the train caused a tumor in his chest and some 18 months later we had to have him put down.
