Quick Bio:
-pound dog-dog rescue

September 27th 2005

Planning World Dominance, food, luring people in a false sense of security and then hatching plans to lick them to death in their sleep.

Being yelled at for biting Sahara when SHE started it...

Favorite Toy:
Bones. Food. Meat. Food. Oh, and chasing flies. Anything Sahara is chewing on.

Favorite Food:
Anything that involves demonstrating my prowess for catching flying objects, and anything I can steal from the humans without them noticing. Sneaky.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere I can chase ducks, bark at other dogs, jump on Sahara and generally have a whale of a time!

Best Tricks:
Attack! (Although I tend to do this before being asked....) 'dance', 'speak' and all the new stuff I'm learning at Training.

Arrival Story:
I came from a shelter in Keysborough, Victoria, after mummy had been looking at me on the internet for a few weeks. She was so sad I'd already been adopted! One day, she noticed I was back at the shelter - I came home with her that night :)

I'm a big scary boy - and I love showing my authority! I'm training to Platinum level with Australian Dog Training to get over my 'agressive traits', and I'm getting better every day.

Forums Motto:

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Hard lump on ribs.

My MAN!:
i dont have one yet

If I was a person...:
I would be a Sherlock Holmes lookalike, bespectacled and puffing away at a pipe whilst wearing a tweed coat with leather elbow patches.

I've Been On Dogster Since:

It turns out when my mummy got me from the pound, a lady had noticed my photo on the website and contacted the shelter. She thought she had a brother to me, and when I went to my new home, she asked the people at the shelter to pass on her details.
Well, mummy was assured this lady wasn't going to take me away and want me all to herself, and apparently she seemed pretty sane and nice - so mummy emailed her. And lo and behold, a few photos and a couple of emails later, it seems I am the spitting image of an 18month old boy named Bruza! Same age, height, markings, ears, drool...everything! And the nice lady is around the same age as my mummy, works just up the road from her, and they're both looking at buying houses in the same area!
Isn't that incredible?
We both train at the same training centre, just on different days. So now Mummy and my brothers mummy are going to meet for coffee after training, and us boys are going to see each other again!
She couldn't take me on as she already has two dogs (only allowed to own two in Australia) but wanted to know how I got on - it seems the first guy who took me home didn't want anything to do with me, and especially not any dog that might be related to me! So once he dumped me at the pound again, lucky me got my new great home, and my very own fur brother.

I have been tagged by the lovely Medea. Now I am it and have to choose 7 of my pals to tag.


Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. I just came out of doggy hospital after I ate most of a couch and got an obstruction of feathers and foam!

2. I love nothing more than snuggling up on Mummy when she watches Oprah - all 35kg of me...

3. I only get car sick within the last 2-3 miles of home. This doesn't impress mummy.

4. I LOVE food! All types! All the time!

5. If you're not giving me enough attention, I'll put your hand in my mouth until you give me more lovin'.

6. My favorite toy is my sister, Sahara. We love beating each up.

7. I am a rescue pup, all the way from being a security pup who was super aggressive. I love other rescue pups!

I've tagged

1. Hope
2. Jazz
3. Blue
4. Marcie
5. Wishbone
6. Flint
7. Sparky the Wonder Dog

You all have no idea how hard that was to find someone that hasn't already been tagged!!
