Do you mean he is supposed to be a harliquen?(black and white)
I have a greyhound, who has no mean bone in her body, and doesn't know a stranger. She is so sweet and even tempered, I couldn't imagine having different dog right now.
She was just diagnosed with epilepsy and so that is our current road to cross. She makes me laugh b/c she goes and lays on my bed while I am on the computer and looks thru the bedroom door at me thru the headboard on my bed, she looks like she is in jail. She looks at me with those big brown eyes and my heart melts everyday for her.

I have an Australian shepherd. Very, I mean VERY, hyper dogs. Mine does not have a mean streak in his body. Well, he does have a glitch. When another dog growled at me and snapped at me Bandit (my Aussie) went BAZERK! he started grolwing and barking like crazy. At had to pull him down and literrally sit on top of him! He was just protecting his mommy. He's one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen (as said by many others) and is VERY smart.

My St. Bernard is shy around strangers, but usually warms up to them after a while. There is only one person she just hates, but that is because he has teased her all of her life. But she is gonna get him one day. But for the most part, she is laid back and lazy. Which suits me just fine.

My Lab, Sadie, is really shy around strangers!! Ithink she was the runt of the litter, because she is kinda small for an adault Labrador!! Sadie is also VERY protective of our house and my family. Most dogs hate the mail man, but the mail man is one of Sadie's best friends!! She tries to go with him!!! I think Labs are ore one of the nicest and friendliest dogs in the world!! (not forgetting Goldens!!) http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

I have 2 Boxers. My female (Roxy) is really hyper. And my male (Rebel) is just laid back. Roxy is very dominant of her territory. Anyone besides me or my boyfriend she doesn't like. Rebel just lies around most of the day. He doesn't mind people except my uncle Georgre(he's a drunk)! They are really great dogs. Roxy is my little angel. I even have her tattooed on my back! They are both house trained and listen very well. They don't make any mess either(shedding, slobering, etc...)

I have a Maltesse. His name is Ruggy (you know rugmop/ruggy). He is my baby. He is very protective of his property which includes me. My parents can't get any where near half the time without him going crazy. He is a little yipper. But also very loveable at night he just likes to snuggle up next to me and never move. His theary is where she goes I go.

I have 2 Westies, and they are the best dogs in the world! Freddy is 8, overweight, and an all around good guy. TJ is 3, very skinny, and the bad boy of the block. They love each other very much.

I also have 2 Great Danes. 6mo boston-marked merle (m) and 2 1/2yo black (m). Our GDs are gentle, GREAT with kids (we have a 2 1/2yo and I have 4 enrolled in my in home daycare), loveable, give kisses all the time and are my babies!!!!!! Could use to do without the excess slobber (our 2 1/2yo thinks his nose has to be all the way in the water whenever he drinks ...LOTS of slobbers) ...but I love them none-the-less. Both GDs are very protective, our older one protects EVERYTHING!!!! Jennifer G.

Here are my babies. Both are rescues. The aussie mix is Graham and the pug is Cassie. Graham is almost 8 years old and Cassie is a bit over 8. Graham is my obedience genius, therapy dog, and soon to be titled agility dog. Cassie is an adorable (but stubborn) couch potato with a genuine loving heart.

Well I have a German Shepherd. Everything they've been tried on that I know of they've excelled at. They are very versatile. I love Iris as my agility, obedience, tracking and pet. If there is a cainine unit in your area, they've probably got a German Shepherd.

To find out more about German Shepherds and my dog Iris go to my web site: http://www.geocities.com/iris_gsd

I have a malamute/husky. Very fun loving, loves people, loves attention, hates to be ignored, loves getting into trouble http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/wink.gif Very active, wants to be involved in everything. LOVES food, will do anything for a treat! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif Also very stubborn, a dog that won't do anything he doesn' want to do, unless you (which is me) is the complete 100% alpha... the greatest dog I"ve even known! He is in agility, and loves it! (well, not those "stupid" weave poles (his words, not mine http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/tongue.gif that have no purpose in his fun loving life!!!). He also loves carting, skiijoring on rollarblades, going on my trail rides, ect... anything active with me!

Also have a cocker mix, possibly with field spaniel. She is calmer, loves people, worships the ground I walk on type of dog. Very nervous in scary situations, terrified of wind and thunderstorms, loves her balls and strange squeeky toys (such as a rubber chicken and something I can only call the "sea urchin", which is her favorite!). She has to be right near me, wherever I go... Her hobbies include her toys, sniffing the ground, getting lost on trail rides (so she's not aloud to come anymore, I spend more time looking for her than anything, and then she goes and gets lost again!), and sleeping on the couch (Where she knows she's not aloud to be!) and walks.

How could I have forgotten to meniton Fuji? Probably because she's really my b/f's dog, and doens' live with me... but I am the one who found her, and she is kind of mine... she is a chow mix, and as she grows (she's 7 months old) she seems that she may be mixed with aussie? She is calm around people, but loves to play with the golden retreiver pup she lives with. She is a lap dog, just wants to be pet... not too interested in toys, only when she's in the mood. When b/f gets a better work shedual she will be put in agility too! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

I have 2 different breeds - 2 long hair chihuahuas and a flat-coated retriever.

This is a link with some of their pictures: http://www.geocities.com/youngcasanova1/MansBestFriend.html

Tobi - our 3 year old long-hair chihuahua is a lot of fun. I bought him from a pet store when he was 7 months old. At first he was extremely withdrawn but after 2 weeks he came along and started getting playful. Now, he is the best. He is not your typical chihuahua in the sense that he's not yappy nor unfriendly to children. All the neighborhood children adore him and take him for a walk.

Lady - is my 1 year old flat-coated retriever. She was sent to me from God as her mother abandoned her in my garden at birth so I've had her from day 1. She really believes I'm her Mother and is very protective. At the same time she is extremely playful and learns commands very fast. I think this breed is super-intelligent and Lady is proof.

Buffy - this is my daughter's new long-hair chihuahua and she is amazing. We are having so much fun with her. Buffy is very alert and I can already tell she is a lot smarter than Tobi (but then again Tobi was locked up in a pet store for his first 7 months). Buffy is very very very playful and we are just so happy to have her.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

It sounds like your Shila has fear aggression. That could lead to lots of trouble. Is she in a training class? Maybe an animal behavior specialist could help her. She needs to be socialized.
BTW, I have a Schutzhund bred Rottweiler.

I have a black American Cocker Spaniel named Jesse. She has been with us since she was 3 months. Now she is 6, 7 in September. When she was little she had alittle white on her chest but every time she got a haircut it was cut off. She also had alittle white on her chin. Now that she is older it is all over her chin and upper lip. She dislikes other dogs unless they are not frisky or older then her. She hates dogs that play rough with her she will attack them (not playfully.) But after afew months she gets used to the dogs that are always around her. They all learn to leave her alone when she is mad though. She lets them sniff her though, even though she and the other dog just met! But she is great with kids (if they don't play rough) she will play with her ball with them until they are tired, but still then she will keep pushing the ball in their hands. I love Jesse so much!!!!! null

I have a Pug named Ollie. He is so cute. He's not like those other pugs,he's not fat and short. He's an active little fella and he is so energetic. If were gone for even 5 minutes and we walk into the house he is right there to greet you and when you go to bed at night he switches from person to person so that he has been with everybody then he finds a place of his own if he gets too hot otherwise he picks someone and is right under the blankets and he has to have some of the pillow. I love him but i really want a rottweiler :p :p

Welcome to Pet Talk! Do you have any pictures of Ollie?
