Its been 3 years since Worzel, our fantastic Springer, passed away. It is now time to look for a new dog. Our Worzel was a very big strapping fella, and as great as he was, he was a fair handful. So this time we will be looking for a slightly smaller dog, and have decided on a Cocker. So my question is, what do you look for when picking a new dog from a litter. Are there any characteristics/traits which should be avoided or sought after? How did you choose yours?
[/url Meet Brenne a 6 month old deerhead chihuahua. He was called Ben ,but we renamed him after my papillon who I lost at 18 a few years ago. His Mum is a short coat chihuahua and his Dad is a long coat chihuahua. He can't be kc as they don't recognise deerheads and he will be bigger than the 6lb limit on appleheads for showing. He was kept back by the breeder as their sons pet, but the xbox was of more interest so we got him. Like most deerheads he is very sociable and slightly bigger than the apple head chihuahuas. Very bright, after 3 days I am getting a recall with a whistle due to the fact he is very food orientated. He should make around 10lbs fully grown as deerheads are bigger than the appleheads. He had never been on a lead before, but walks lovely on a lead and harness now. My Granddaughter is enthralled with him. Might make a butter bunny retriever as he will bring a kong back to hand already. Had to get a cat kong as the dog ones are too big.
