Aren't OES shortlived?

Bouvier? I think they're relatively healthy.

All the Bouvier I've met are the definition of sharp temperament.

Not any shorter than an average large breed dog. I would say from a good breeder you're looking at 12-14years on average. There are lots of mill OES, but if you stay away from that...

When I looked into Bouvier there seemed to be more temperament problems than health problems. It seemed like SSA was fairly common, and they definitely have a protective streak that someone might not want to deal with. I guess they aren't what I would call an easy dog.

Me too...the ones I have seen at agility trials I would not classify as an easy going dog. I would put them on the same plane as a Rottweiler in temperament.

I cannot tell you how many "Should you own a Bouvier" pages call them Rottweilers with more fur.

So I think what we've learned in this thread is that OES is the perfect choice. Mainly so I can come and squish on it.

I believe it! There's one Bouvier with a woman I see somewhat often at agility shows. Everyone gives her dog a wide berth when he comes through to get in the ring. But she is perfectly matched with him...because she is totally no BS. She is someone I would not mess with...she just radiates authority. But with a dog like that...she needs to.

Know any breeders off hand that you would recommend?

Also, when are you coming through here? Anytime before the big meet up?

Thank you!

And they aren't really actively looking but I know that it's going to be near impossible for my dad to not have a dog. Hannah's gone on the down turn the last few days and I'm not sure how much longer she's going to be with us.

So, if he ends up wanting to get a dog this summer I'll push back my greyhound want and help him find a big old dog for himself. I figure I should have an idea what might fit him before he goes out and just gets a dog because he has no sense about what he actually wants/should have.

This sounds super morbid, sorry. I promise this isn't "Lets replace Hannah!" but he's spent every day with that dog since she was a puppy, she goes on every carride possible, sits outside with him all summer long, sleeps next to him in the bed and is the first living being he greets when he gets home. He's gonna need something to help him heal.
