When I was back visiting my son in February, I met the FAMOUS Pitbull/Chihuahua cross a friend of his has. O M G. Talk about an atitude!!! Confidence in a fur coat!!!! Big Grin

Whatever they are,
Sheryl...they are both adorable.

What do the resident dogs think of them?

Not much, lol. The old guy (Fergus) ignores them, Molly (the GS) growls at them when they get out of line, Squeek (the Corgi) just tries to get between them and me at all times, and Katy - well, she's got issues, so it doesn't matter much. The one cat loves them, but he's hardly discriminating! Rolling my eyes.

They know enough to stay away from mine! Hilarious!

A pit chi cross.... ooo, the mind boggles. You wouldn't happen to have a pic, would you?

"As with other terriers, they can be dog-aggressive and somewhat bossy" Hilarious! Somewhat? Somewhat?! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing You don't find many terriers in the top Obedience slots, that's for sure. Pits are the mellowest of the bunch... Scotties, now.... oof-dah-lah! Pity any rat in the vicinity. Blinking

I like terriers, but they sure aren't for everyone. Hilarious!

We had a Cairn, Maggie, that I still miss - she was a great little dog. She'd go crazy when it rained, she'd run back and forth (outside, in the rain) barking and running until it stopped. Thank goodness we lived in Phoenix at the time. We called her "the rhino" - she was built like one and 100% muscle.

Not the best pic of her, but....
Lovey dubby

Here's one for your fertile imagination.... Big Grin We had a wonderful mutt, named Algernon Fortesque (name of the Base Linesman Judge at the finals singles match, Wimbolton 1976...I kid you not) but we called him Clyde. He was half Basset and half Great Dane. Body is always by Basset, head/coat/tail are by Great Dane. Whistling

Oh dear... on so many counts. Hilarious! The creation of Clyde must have been quite a sight to see.

Here's the pup that's stolen the SO's heart...

Another pittie... or at least pit cross. We don't know how she came to be w/the rescue organization, but that's who's got her right now.

If anyone is interested in early puppy training, here's a great page!
http://www.taylordcanines.com/id26.html

We're going to be forwarding it on to the foster mom so that they can follow the program... especially those important AVOID TRAUMA periods. Like this week. The pup needs to stay home in the quiet. Next week... something different.

Got this info from the woman who trained Ricochet... she's been very helpful in turning us onto Plaffenberger. Big Grin

Oh cool - I will have to look at the link.

I can see why your SO fell in love - awww.... Lovey dubby But it also tells me with Tug's strange almost Asian looking eyes, there's something else in there other than pit.

I told River we were getting a new pup & she had to play nice w/it (of course, it will be a looong time before there's any unsupervised time). And no, she could not pick it up & throw it or use it to play tug... so she wants to know how she's supposed to play w/it. Hilarious!

I'm interested to see how she takes to a little pup. Of course, I will ignore the pup to prevent major jealousy outbreaks... well, I will TRY to ignore the pup at least til they bond. Whistling

Yup, waiting for a puppy is about the worst torture there is!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I think many older dogs ignore pups. Been there, done that. When we had our first shetland pony on trial, he & the elder Morgan cross played chase & see where you can run all afternoon. Next morning when they were let out, the oany went flying down the hill. His 'tag' buddy from the day before just watched him go. "did that yesterday', he said.

Where do people see cocker in the pups? I see no traces of it. More different working breeds, I think.

I would say cocker only in his ear length, and maybe the shorter, rounded but not pushed-in nose. That, and it seems like most mutts have some cocker, some terrier or some German Shep in them, to my experience.

But to your point, there's really a thousand places you can pull those features from.
