Dogos are cool....I've loved both of mine. Gotta admit, it would be nice to hear "is that a dogo?". I usually hear " wow! Thats a HUGE pit!". LOL.

Ahhhh... The plight of rare dog owners. lol. It doesnt bother me ad much as it did when i got my first dogo 7yrs ago. Now when I notice people looking hard...i just smile & tell them he's not the breed I'm betting theyre thinking. Every once in awhile i get an obnoxious one who will insist hes part pit.....i just smile and list off the 10 breeds used to make him and refer them to DACA.org if they choose not to believe me.....lol. I teased my hubby once that I should carry his papers with me, but he said theyd just accuse me of having fake papers (Hardly anyone knows what FCI papers are). If its not AKC it cant posdibly be real....lol.

you need to say to them...umm..no, he's not part pit, but i'm sure the large pitbulls you see aren't all pit!
it would be easy to tell them apart if people actually took care to keep the breed intact. now pitbulls are 75 pounds and not quite as athletic.

Wheaton Terriers are shed free too I believe, and they have rescue groups. They kind of look like big Yorkies to me.

Here are my babies, Bella and Koal. Bella is a Blue Heeler, and Koal is a Blue Heeler/Border Collie.

Thanks! Koal is a bad dog! LOL. Bella is pretty nutty, and I am sure she has doggie A.D.D...
I only paid $75 for them, but that's not including food, vet bills, etc.
My husband doesn't like the fish either.

Ya, our cost 90$ a month to feed. Baxter can't have any grains, or chicken, so we feed taste if the wild. We figured may as well just put both on it. I'm sure as Dakota gets bigger she will eat more.... Bax was adopted thru a rescue and I found Dakota along a busy road with her brother ( rip :-( ) no one claimed her but SHE claimed us! They are so entertaining... My fiance is a cat guy... But he now admits he wouldn't trade our pups for anything!!!! And all the fish tanks, well expensive "TV" for all the animals!!!

Beautiful dogs, everyone!

I wish I could participate in this thread someday. We lost our beautiful Brittany Spaniel to heart disease around this time last year. Ever since then, my husband refuses to even consider getting another dog any time soon, (especially a Beagle... which is what I've always wanted since I was a kid). It hurt us to put our li'l girl down, but she was suffering pretty bad towards the end. It just doesn't feel right not having a dog in our lives.

Be sure to cherish your dogs and give them hugs every single day because you never know when your friend(s) will leave your side. RIP Jessie

I thought maybe the last picture kinda needs explaining... when you are training a dog to attack don't wrap the leash around your hand... my wife's broken ring finger.
