   Leave a bone for Bristow

Bristow Headus, Big Boy, Bistro, Mister Bristofolies

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

March 15th 2004

His favorite activity is disemboweling stuffed toys, processing them and depositing them in the backyard in nice poopy piles.

Hates to walk between tight spaces.... turns to a sprint to get "thru" a tight spot.

Favorite Toy:
Ice cubes, anything else he can EAT!

Favorite Food:
Any food is acceptable. I eat oranges and avocados (WHOLE). Yup, I've consumed two full avocados with pits. They passed successfully.

Favorite Walk:
Any walk is his favorite, but the dog park is primo!

Best Tricks:
Crazy Pig Play! (aka Psycho dog!), double-armed hang, I know speak on command, sit, stay, down.

Arrival Story:
Bristow is from a backyard breeder in East Ventura. I've come across two of his littermates so far... would love find others.

We brought Bristow home at 6 weeks... one week later he came down with Juvenile Celullitis (aka Puppy Strangles). This is a disease spread through genetics only. The breeders acted like it was nothing when we called to let them know about this serious disesase. We weren't interested in bringing suit against the breeders, but mainly to warn others that adopted dogs from the same litter to check for signs of this very uncommon disease. We kindly asked that they communicate to everyone that purchased their puppies....we doubt they ever did. Hopefully the disease wasn't passed to the others... But good ole Bristow made it through just fine... took about two months of Prednazone, Anti-biotics, ointment for blisters on his face. A battle, but Bristow's a tough survivor. Now we're surviving his CCL surgery at age 3. He's doing great 9 weeks post op.... Yes, Brstow's medical file is a bit thick.
