Default Opie and the Jolly Ball!

Somebody left two new jolly balls in the play area over the week, and Opie decided that he loves to play with the jolly ball! Here are the pics to prove it.

Oh, man . . . . he is losing weight fast We've got to figure out how to do something . . . He is going to literally pine himself to death without a family. Some may not believe it, but a Fila really can die of a lonesome, broken heart.

I know. But I just don't know what to do.

ETA: I can believe you about the filas dying from a broken heart. There are other breeds like this, such as the Akita. I was reading stuff on an Akita rescue and they had stories about some dogs who were so bonded to their previous owners that they refused to bond with anyone else, refused to eat, and basically refused to live. They had to be euthanized due to broken hearts.

Well, since they won't adopt to anyone who isn't local we might have to get creative.

Personally, I think anyone who could give Opie a good home would be a great candidate for a Kharma puppy addition down the road. Filas are like potato chips - one is never enough.

Its funny you should say that. I would LOVE to take Opie home, and I've also been thinking about a purebred fila puppy one day, now that I've gotten to see what loving a fila (even if a mix)is like.

I'm dead serious about it. If there's someone here who can give Opie a good home and is ready when the time comes, I'll do my best to make sure there is a way for them to have a pup from Kharma, or if they aren't ready then, maybe one of her grandchildren.

I'd rather have her puppies in the right homes than be paid for a pup, by a long shot. The whole point is to have a good line of Filas and have them in hands that will love them and raise them right, so that they can live and function in the modern world without watering down the breed.

Why hasn't he been adopted yet? Who can resist such a beautiful face! I'd take him in a heartbeat.
