They are cute little things! I'd also think you'd have to import one. My grandfather used to import dobies from a breeder in Germany he met during WWII. It wasn't cheap or easy then, it's probably even more expensive and difficult now, but if it's what you really, really want.
Yeah, back then you just had to get the dog a rabies shot within x number of days and you were done. It's gotten more complicated since then. I honestly don't know if he stopped importing because the rules tightened up or if he just got too old to deal with large, energetic dogs.
There isn't any quarantine for pets coming into the US (sorry, I always forget who's in Canada! I can't imagine there's a quarantine there either since it's not a rabies-free country). They just need a health certificate (which requires certain vaccinations at certain times) to fly internationally.
I looked them up---cute! They look like most pariah-type dogs. Do people actually breed them or are they mostly street dogs? I don't think it would be too hard to import a street dog if you wanted to---I knew a guy who was a civilian contractor with the miliitary and he would bring one or two street dogs back from Kuwait every time he went. Probably not cheap, but not too difficult.
Googling photos of kokoni and alopekis shows a lot of dogs that look like mine!
I prefer dogs with more leg is all. My two are 12-15" and 13-14 pound shelter dogs from southern California where this type of smaller dog with flop/prick ear and ring tails that may or may not have lots of hair on it are quite common and they are great dogs. Look at your local Petfinder under chihuahua, terrier, spaniel, tibetan spaniel and pomeranian for this type of dog if an adult is okay with you. I have no clue what these look like as pups or what the breeders call the parent dogs.
We recently acquired a Thai Ridgeback puppy. He's now 4 months old. We've had him for a month. He still nips and bites like a lot! And he often gets into a "zoom" type mood that is combined with biting like a playful fight, and he pounces around like a crazy dog. I noticed he does this extra...
I have a dog of germen shepherd breed with long hair. I need the vacuum cleaner which is good for pet hairs and also for allergens.
Can anyone give a suggestion about the best vacuum cleaner for the dog hairs?
I am writing to gather any experience any of you may have with having multiple dominant male dogs in the same household. I am an experienced dog owner but I have never had two large breed dogs (that tend to be dominant) in the same household. What are any tips/tricks? Does...
New poster here. I have a 7.5 month old puppy that we are training/taking classes to hopefully integrate well into our active lifestyle. Furthermore, she goes to work (city recreation dept office) with me.
We have been doing basic training with her in a flat collar, sometimes with a Ruffwear...
