Some may remember Mason who was advertised on here in need of a new home.

Mason came to me where he stayed as a foster and shortly after found a new forever home .. but.. because we thought he was so damn handsome it was suggested that they have a bash at him in the ring.

His first show was today and what a day we had, in a class full of Champions and dogs who are close to finishing, he placed 3rd!

3rd may not be all that brilliant to some but.. this is a 5 year old dog who has never seen a show ring, with a handler he only just met and by placing 3rd in the class he did he gained his stud book number and his life time qualification for crufts. To say that we were beaming from ear to ear doesn't even come close to it!

Way to go Mason!

"Rescue" dog turned "show dog". I guess he'll be used as a stud for your next litter too. Can't say I didn't see this coming.
Sure, canceling all the other dogs booked cause he's cheaper and closer.*yawn*
Being that he went under a esteemed breed specialist today, placed above champions, he is good example of the breed.

That said he doesn't live with me, he has no health testing and although well bred not a pedigree that would work with anything of mine.

I thought you /DT would be pleaded to see he has a loving forever home and its certainly been amusing to see the reaction of people to a totally unknown dog do as well as he did, gaining his stud book number which is an achievement some never achieve.
There were 100 odd dogs here today. So many positive comments from well known dobe people, his previous owners are kept in the loop as is his breeder who was very helpful a.d proactive in his rehoming. A situation I don't often find to be the case.

So... in summary..

*yawn* its getting old now.

It is just with your poor start here, with the breeding of your first litter from a semi rescue dog with huge temperament problems and your semi rescued bitches purchased from a byb, people keep waiting on that other shoe to drop again. You also give poor advice thinking you know way more than you do. It is hard to dig yourself out of the deep hole you put yourself in. I am curious, myself, what happened to your two huskies and the whippet(?) you had? How many litters you've had since your arrival here just a couple or three years ago, how many and what dobermans you have at your place now??!? We hear about your success, but cant help but wonder how many are tossed aside getting there. You must admit your arrival here was not good at all, especially with you lying on top of everything else. Our experience has been people dont change their stripes, just cover them up for a while, only to show them again later.

Go look at my website, its kept up to date with where and who I have in.

I have my 4 plus Hermione who is a foster fail and will be staying indefinitely.

My dogs are with me till they leave this earth. My dogs are here to stay, the only ones who leave are fosters. That's more that can be said for some.breeders in the UK who move the.dogs on as soon.as.they are no longer useful.

Dogs from my first litter, my bitch has her BH and will be doing her ztp and ipo exam. Her brother has a rcc, always placing, beating champions week in week out. My bitch also comes to work with me and is.climbed over by 2 children, my other bitch by the same.dam. is.trained to.search.for drugs and will be working full time once exams are passed also her BH next month. Another male I produced is one of the top winning young males at the moment.
A bad load of dogs I have produced it seems. Not had for a byb.

Last weekend 3 passed their CGC.

Not only that but I almost always have a foster in my house, donating time And money to rescue... what a horrible person am I.

I started in a way which was less than ideal hut have gone from strength to strength and have no intentions of going anywhere..

Ref huskies, we moved house to.a.working farm and the huskies were not allowed, always been pets, nothing else but. They live with a few other huskies now and are part of a sled team.
The whippet, poppy, she was a dog we acquired as a stray, we opted to.rehome her as she was better suited as an only dog. Sadly she passed away last year due to a rta on holiday in France with her owners, very sadly missed.

I work along side various reaches and transport networks to move dogs in need about the country. Feel free to check my.references with other breeders in the UK.

This year I will do my exams.to become a.judge.

Bybs do.all.of this I am sure..

got to admit i thought candy might be a failed foster too :D jayne
tee hee hee!!

Candy was and is beautiful!

She needed an only dog home and has found one, settled in beautifully. They are incredibly happy with her. :)

Have had some fab pics through of her taking over their bed, just what i want to see!! ESPECIALLY considering she was due to be PTS the day after we got her.

Dont have access to a computer right now, even if you gave your site address. You only answered a couple of questions!?! What about the other ones? I explained why you are often received the way you are. You are the one that did it, not me or others. Dont know, but was thinking your story about the first two was slightly different, but will have to look that up, but they were purchased from a byb, right? I thought you said those huskies had a lifetime home, too?!? It doesnt help that a dog can walk in literally off the street and get a stud number and qualify for Crufts in one show. Just doesnt make it sound like much of a challenge. I know it is because I dont understand the system, but still, ONE SHOW?!? Is it one judge, too. Trust me, I wish you had joined here under much different circumstances. So, you have your two first bitches, Georgie, Hermiome the rescue, and ?. How many litters in three years from these two bitches or who?

glad to hear she's settled in well. she deserves a good home after all she's been through. still don't understand the other woman who wanted her and then changed her mind when she got her. her loss, candy's gain. don't forget to post pics on fb so we can all see :)
