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 an Alaskan Malamute and we moved into our first house. When trying to build a fence we found out that the city has a restriction that only 4' fences were allowed unless appealed. The 4' fence would not work for us as our Malamute would be able to hop that fence with no problem...
this is odd ... there is always a boney thing sticking out of the pups side body. like after where the ribs finish. there's a boney thing only on the one side. i slighty touch it and it doesn't hurt him ... doesn't even seem to bother him one bit. it can't be a bone out of place can it otherwise...
Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a good robot vacuum cleaner for pet hair? Or, alternately, a regular vacuum cleaner (bagless).
We have a shepherd mix who sheds a lot, and are considering adding a second dog within the next year. My boyfriend also works in construction and...
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?
