Bad news: Her GSD bitch has dysplastic hips, so she won't be breeding her. So my dad won't be getting one of her puppies
That sucks , but at your dad can find comfort in the fact that she is a responsible person who did the right thing.

For whatever reason, he took walking on that street as a sign to lose his mind. Didn't go that way for 2 months, and then he was back to normal.

I know how you feel, it was so incredibly frustrating for my sister to deal with, and honestly I think he also grew out of it too, as well as the training.
Hm, I might try though, though she does it off leash too. She just seems to get totally over simulated and slightly unsure of the situation. Everything was fine, until we passed workers cutting down trees. 2 minutes later, she started acting up. Calmed her down, went on, tree creaked she started over again. Normally, she is pretty sure of herself, however in situations like that, she seems to not understand what is going on and I guess it turns a switch in her brain.

I guess getting frusterated with her, makes her even more frusterated than she was before.

Could she be just going through a fear period??

I can barely stand the house without Byron in it. With gizzy gone to I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

I forgot how exhausting puppies are. This is not "my" dog but it is so hard for me to not be involved - and so therefore, I am super involved.

And I was about ready to dump Juno outside with a "free" sign hung around her neck. Anytime a new dog comes into the house (or yard) she becomes the most obnoxious, overwhelming dog on the planet. She wants to play so bad but she comes on way too strongly and just ends up being frightening lol. And it takes her quite a while to just relax and be normal. So that's a pain.

She is, actually. That's why I'm pretty sure her acting up in the woods is because she is unsure of herself in that situation. Esp. on paths that she doesn't know very well. She's pretty much fine on our normal path. She'll try and do it once and if you plain our ignore it, it's fine after like 30 seconds.

I've had my mind set on getting a Great Dane puppy for a while now; but now I've of course been browsing Petfinder and there is a older, droopy Labrador x Chow Chow mix for adoption, that looks just like a Labrador with a little more fluff to him, and now I am having thoughts about how I may need him. This is why I need to stay away from Petfinder. I swear I'm never going to get a puppy I plan for, because other dogs keep finding their way here! We will see....

Well; that was quick. Apparently he's been adopted already. I swear no one updates their Petfinder here!

That means you called about him though

-------

I want a dog ready to compete in agility 2-3 years from now, when Lucy can't do it anymore. I don't want to have 2 dogs (1 young, untrained) + baby over the next 2-3 years though. To be honest, I don't really ever want 2 dogs at the same time. I wish there was a rescue that would put foundations on a dog for me. I also fear that I will never be able to get a small dog from any decent rescue with a young child in the house. *sigh*

Anyone want to adopt and care for a dog through the puppy years so I can take it back when it's 3ish?
