Choosing the Right Dog > I heard female Boston Terriers are not cuddly?

I dont know much about the cuddle ability of Bostons but I do believe that it depends on the dog. Out of my dachshunds (1 female, 2 males) the girl is the most attention seeking one! Just look at her page, you can tell she cannot stay away (she is kinda a pain because she always wants to be with you)!

Behavior & Training > GOOD OR BAD IDEA?!?!? Small and Large Breed Living Together?

I have 3 mini dachshunds (ranging from 7 to 10 lbs), a Border collie x (35 lbs), a Golden (55 lbs) and a new English Foxhound puppy who at 4 months already weighs 50 lbs. We leave 1 doxie, the golden, and the BC mix together when we are not home and have never had a problem. It is all about you teaching them the boundaries, my doxies will stand up to the larger dogs and will let them know when things are getting to rough but you have to be their to enforce it until the larger dog realizes that their are different ways to play with different dogs.

For example, when the foxhound and golden play they go hard...throwing each other around and grabbing at each other. However when the foxhound plays with the doxies he is much gentler, usually just laying on the ground and pawing at them while the doxies run around him like crazy dogs. He has already started laying down to greet smaller dogs. The foxhound has picked up on the differences between large dog and small dog play very quickly.

I am so glad she fits in so well!!

Our little boy is doing pretty well on house training also, it is so much easier when you have a dog that is already reliable. Cash just follows Star and Wiggles out every time they go out which makes house training a breeze.

Choosing the Right Dog > Is it true that Bernese Mountain dog breeders destroy all but 3 pups each litter

I know people can come up with crazy things.

Anytime anyone asks me anything like this I always say to look at berner guarde. It is such a great resource and you can look up anything on a dog (titles, health issues, certifications, etc) I wish all breeds had a database like berner guarde.

Absolutely not!!

I know many people who show and breed these dogs and they can have large litters (although they can also have very small litters) but they never destroy any and are devastated if one dies. I currently know of a litter that only had 3 puppies (the bitch was extremely hard to breed) and another who had 11. If you want more proof you can go to http://bernergarde.org/db/ this is a database where all reputable BMD breeders enter information on the dogs and litters (it is a great resource)

Milo is from a breed specific (dachshund) rescue and was in a foster home with 2 intact females who were being shown. One of my friends also fosters for a different breed specific (Bernese mountain dogs) rescue and she has 5 intact (4 females and a male) who she shows. I know there are ones out there who are fine with it, most are national rescues or ones through the breed club.

Most breed specific rescues will foster and even adopt to someone with intact dogs so long as they are actively showing the dog or have a valid medical reason for the dog to be intact.

Sorry for the late response...We got a puppy so things are a little crazy!

Anyway, if you want to use any pictures from any of my dogs or cats pages feel free!
