    Sadly, too many people only want puppies, because they're cute, and discard them when they're grown up. The rescues are full of dogs that have been replaced by puppies and there'll be lots more at Ch******.
    Dogs are for life, whatever they look like.
    Poodle crosses and the other "designer" dogs that have been bred because they don't moult and make people's home look hairy and untidy, also need a lot of grooming and haircuts. I know, I have 3 of them.

    Yes agree - my friends labpoo has to be shorn regularly. I'd be happy to have a discarded dog but I know how small incidents can damage them forever - our cocker spaniel pup was kicked by the kids next door and he never let another child go near him again, apart from our own.

    Default Here is our dog

    Dear all - well here I am again - this time to tell you that we have our dog! After much thought and effort - and no luck getting a rescue dog, we just did not tick their boxes thanks to cats, hens, and no other dog.
    We now have a lovely smooth collie - his name is Riki, and he is now 15 weeks old. He is very calm, picks up the training quickly, chases the hens and scoffs their poop....! So the garden is now divided in half with the hens down the end, which actually is much better - no more poop on the patio/paths round the house and the flower beds have flowers in them! Thanks to everyone for your wise words....ps his ears do tip over as is required - he was having an 'ears up' day when these photos were taken!
