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 have a 14 week old German Shar Pei and she has started something new these last few days. When we put her in the crate at night she immediately poops. This is after going outside numerous times prior. Additionally, after a few hours of sleep she does it again. She just started doing this (we...
I picked up a puppy from the pound that I immediately identified as a rottweiler/labrador retriever mix. It was a pretty much a no brainer in identifying him as such, and when I looked up videos on the labrottie, he looked just like one. The only odd thing about him is that he has...
I adopted this furry baby from an animal shelter while I was vacationing in Ruidosa.
I wasn't sure what breed she was but at approx 9 mos old she resembles a shepherd. Ive used the Lens app and she comes up as a Harzer Fuchs??
I have 2 large dog who feed off each other's energy. This is a problem especially when someone comes to the door (usually the mailman). Pepper, even though she likes people, has developed the habit of totally freaking out and barking/lunging/growling at the mailman when he shows up. I suspect...
3 years ago my wife and I adopted a "Dakotah Shepherd" from DRK Kennels in South Dakotah. Originally this mix breed was created by Triple M Kennels, which is a cross between an Australian Kelpie and an English Shepherd. I had read about the Dakotah Shepherd on Triple M's site (still up...
