strange coincidence, have a look at our former dog, he died in april 2007.
A terrier as you can see with white socks and a white collar, like yours,
only smaller he was 8 kg.
Be carefull, the vets always told us that especially terrier are very sensible dogs,
never ever give cortison it can provoke cushing disease. They have a bad
reputation these bull terriers but I have know a lot that are the most lovable dogs
one can imagine, it all depends on the owner.
Any idea how old she is?
She's around a year old now. She seemed to be about 8 months when she first showed up. She had all her adult teeth in - but not all of them all the way in. And she was still chewing on everything - so she probably was just finishing that 'teething' thing. She has also increased a little bit in size, so my best guess is around 1 year old now.
Our Lilly is the most submissive and affectionate dog I've ever seen. In fact, the very first encounters Bennett (our big dog) and I had with her, she rolled over and exposed her throat (she still does this frequently.) Then after some reassurance, she was wagging her entire body.
The other side of the coin is that she's an absolutely hyperactive freak!! She is such a powerful, high-energy dog (and a bit clumsy) that she's liable to damage something or hurt someone a little accidentally.
Also, she's very young, so much of this will pass with maturity. I know the reputation of this breed. But all
terriers are to be regarded as killers. That's what they are - every last one of them. Even the little Yorkies are born killers. If you don't think so, show one of them a rat.
However, after knowing some good American Pit Bull Terriers and doing some research, I've come to the conclusion that the bad reputation should be ascribed to the bad owners who make them vicious for their own sport - and breeders who breed them for gaming (fighting).
After all, I know some people who are born killers, and I'm not afraid of them just because of that.
She's learning quickly what's acceptable and what isn't. Bennett is a good teacher. He even stops her from stealing our food if we forgetfully walk away for a moment.
I believe we are quite fortunate with the animals we have.
