Arrival Story: My mommie(Zeus's mom) and auntie(Dasha's and Gabriels's mom) wanted another girl in the family to complete the pack. They as always were looking thru sites and shelthers, until one day they saw an ad for puppies. They contacted the owner and arrange to go meet the puppies, the mom and the owner. Of course, auntie fell in love with every single puppy, even the ones the were not for sale : ) Mommie on the other hand needed more time. After spending a while with us, she had no more doubt about getting one of us. It was a tough decision but finally the whole family could not resist my beautiful eyes, and lovably personality. When i arrived to my new forever home to meet my new brothers and sister, every one knew this was meant to be. They greeted amd welcome me. I now have one new big sister and two big brothers( they sure are big) I cant wait to learn all sort of new stuff from them. I have also gain 2 mommies, one uncle, and 3 beautiful girls.
Bio: Karisma's dad is a pure breed boxer and her mom is a pure breed rottweiler. The guy who we got her from owns both dogs. As you can guess, his dogs got into some mischief : ) He needed to get rid of the whole litter, if by any chance he had no luck he was gonna take them to a shelter. Karisma was part of a litter of 8 puppies. When we got her, we were told she was over 8 weeks and ready to start eating solid food. In the few days that we had her we notice several things, she wouldn't eat her kibbles, she would run into everything and her eyes had this weird gray layer over them. We took her to our vet and came to find out that she was really only about 4 weeks old. Our vet recommend giving her all the shots the previous owner said he had given her, just to be on the safe side, he also recommend to feed her puppy milk instead of the kibbles. Getting Karisma was like having a new born : ) There were many sleepless nights! but Everything was WORTH IT!!!!! We all have a very close bond with her.
As some may know i recently just got a new little , LIttle, TINY sister. The tinniest of all dog; Honestly!; I think mommy lied by telling me she is a dog; I THINK she is a large mouse who just smells and acts like a dog. What ever she is I'm very HAPPY she join my Family. She is a very quite girl who loves to snuggle with us. I'm still trying to get used to her trying to lie in between my legs. I enjoy playing with her, our favorite game is tag. She is a mighty little dog Believe me!! She loves chasing after all of us and she does a good job at it, she is mighty fast. HEY!!!! I just came up with her new nickname MIGHTY MOUSE. She is my/our precious mighty mouse. Im very happy to have a lilttle sister who I can teach all sort of great tricks and commands. First we need to get this potty train thing down. Mommy say her accidents are like a drop of water compare to mines that were like a river. : 0 ) What can i say i just had a big bladder. I known she will get it down, just like I did. I can hardly wait till she starts going to puppy class. Yeah!!! Im going to be a very proud sister!!!!!!! HOLD ON!!!!!!!!!! i'm wondering??????

One thing is for sure I will always be your SILLY BIG RED. Thanks to all my pals for my birthday wishes, you guys are the BEST!!!!!
Some humans are always telling mom and auntie that I am a scary dog. They assumed because I am a rottie/ boxer I am a killer. I don't know where this humans get their facts from but its wrong. I am impressed that a 2 yr and 7 yr olds are not discriminating toward dogs as some adult humans are. They accept anyone no matter what their background as if they known them all their lives. Give us a chance, big dogs as me are sweethearts. I love my 3 girls and always will. No matter how much training a dog gets( I have been in dog class every since i was four months, and was top of my class every time) we will always be judge because of our size. Is not fair!!!!!
See, today my auntie and mom had made an appointment to a professional photography place, who are pet friendly, to take family pictures. My mom as my auntie and uncle and myself were really looking foward to taking nice pictures. Everything was going great. I walked through the mall with my family as a good girl, and greeted everyone that i met (as the sweet girl that i am). We got inside the picture people and things were still cool. We went inside the room were the pictures would be taken. The minute the photoghapher saw me she was not happy. Again because I am big. She only glanced at me for a second, that's all it took, after that one second she didn't smile or even glanced at me again. She pretended i wasn't there. She was negative toward my presence in the room. Toward my sister Dasha,a 20 lb brussel griffon, she was all smile.
When she started snaping the first picture everything was fine, from there on she was more focuse on everyone else expect for me. My mommy and auntie totally picked up on her negative vibe as well as i did. She was rubbing all of us the wrong way. After she snaped some more picture, she started to get closer, HONESTLY, how can a pup feel secure around someone who is being negative towards them. So i did what any other pup would do in a case like this, I bark at the lady, i told her ""STAY AWAY, I DONT TRUST YOU"" Just because i am a bully breed doesn't mean i am gonna hurt you but if you make me feel like i need to defeand myself, just like anything OTHER DOG WOULD, i will let you know. Right away mommy and auntie corrected my behavior, they reasurred me that everything was gonna be OKAY, no one was gonna hurt me. But that only gave the lady more reason to be negative towards me. Mommy and auntie had had enough, they decided to take me back to the car because they could not put up with the photographer negative attitude towards me but since the whole family was all dressed and the session was already pay for they decided to continue the the photo session.
Mommy and me where waiting for the rest of the family in the car. She reassured me that NOT EVERYONE judges a dog by its look. That only ignorant people do. I gotta admit i was HEARTBROKEN because i could not take pictures with my family. The family pictures turn out not to be a COMPLETE family picture. : ( My little girls were sad because there BIG RED ( ME) was not in the pictures with them.
Dont worry, we will take a COMPLETE family picture pretty soon, That is my promise to my girls.
My sister Dasha was also dissaponited we didn't take pictures together. She told me she LOVES me no matter what others think, and that she will always be on my side specially when we incounter ignorant people like we did today. I love my Family, I sure am a lucky girl. So to everyone out there PLEASE DONT ASSUME A BIG DOG IS A DANGEROUS DOG. You will be suprise how sweet, faithful and loyal we are IF you just give us a chance
