Honey is my female PittChow and she is 2 years old. She is not a barker but she will let you know if someone is at the door or if the mailman comes by. She is fiercly independent as I try to cuddle with her and she can take it for about 2 seconds and then gives you the look of "ok, I'm over it" ha. She does not like me to cover her with blankets and does not sleep under the covers on the bed like some breeds do. I think that might have to do with their protectiveness. They want to make sure they are alert and can make sure their owner is safe. She does not like ANYONE coming into the house if I am not there. When that has happened, she shows her teeth and barks ferociously. My family members have told me she would not let them get close to her at all when they entered my house alone and would show her teeth. When I come home from work, she is the happiest I have ever seen her. A loving loyal dog.
My Schnug is an amazing dog. He listens quite well, and loves to cuddle. He runs around his yard with his best friend, who is a Jug. He loves to army crawl around the house and yard. You will often find him with a toy, fully content with himself. If he's not with a toy, you will find him staring at someone until they pet him or pick him up. He LOVES attention, and LOVES to give kisses.
Dori was 6 years olds when I adopted her from a shelter who brought her up from GA (She was in a place called "dogs on death row"). She is the sweetest, loving dog. I adopted her about 6 weeks after I had lost my part-golden that I had for 13 years. She immediately bonded to me, and after several weeks my husband. She didn't take to my grandsons immediately, but now she has accepted them as part of her "pack". She sits in my reclining chair with me, with her legs and tail hanging off. She'll also sleep in the bed with me. She is territorial and doesn't like small dogs (or squirrels). She was already housebroken and crate trained, but she didn't like the crate (must have been that 16 hour trip on a bus from GA).
She goes crazy when I return home, running around and getting her stuffed toy for me to throw. She makes welcoming sounds like I've been away for weeks! She's very affectionate, and in the 14 months I've had her, she has never messed in the house. She has never chewed anything either.
She's an angel of a dog, and I'm so glad I was able to give her a home.
I found Pico online from a rescue when I was looking for another small dog to be with my other three chihuahua dogs. I was told he was separated from the other puppies because he was so small and they were afraid he would get hurt. He was only 8 weeks old when I finally got him and he had a really bad intestinal worm problem which is probably why he was so small. After several trips to my vet we got it cured and he started to grow. I know he is not the breed they claimed and I am constantly looking for other dogs like him to get more information on his breed. He is all muscle and full of energy but he is a big baby at the same time. He has to be with me all the time and when I do have to leave him he literally throws a fit! In the car if I get out and do not take him he gets upset but as soon as I am out of sight he calms down and sits and waits. He loves walks but does tire easily. On one walk he laid down on the sidewalk and rolled over on his side and refused to move much to the amusement of everyone around. Because he lives with small animals he does not know his size. His best friend is my Maine Coon Cat who he puts his front arm around when they are sleeping. He barks a lot and I am trying to get him to stop that but he uses the barking as talking and thinks I should understand. When I am home from work he takes his toys over and wants me to play with him and then he very gently uses his front paw to get my attention because he needs a hug. Sometimes he crawls on my lap like he is a little dog. He is probably one of the most intelligent dogs I have ever had, he learns fast and understands so much. He is a hound outside from the beagle side of him and he thinks he can chase the birds flying over him and smells whatever was walking around the yard like a bloodhound. He can also play by himself, he throws his balls or toys and then chases them. He understands words and if I tell him to get the ball in another room he will stop for a second to think and then goes and gets it, if I say the name of another toy he will go get it. One of the best things I taught him is that he loves to grab paper out of my hand and run with it and he is fast but if I tell him I will trade the paper for a treat he will stop and then I will say "drop it" and he does for the treat. Has saved many potential shredded papers!! It has to be the combination of the two breeds. I had a beagle when I was younger and I recognize the breed in him. As you can tell we are very attached to each other.

I have a 9 wk old puppy named zuekie who is crossed with pitbull and rottweiler, she is a brindle brown colour and has more of a rottwelier face. She is very play full at the moment and loves to play with my other 2 dogs especially my boxer cross dalmaton dog who she loves to play with. She is very engenic and is teething at the moment she is very fit and heathly.
