When I said yes to this little girl! Well yes I was actually, she has a deformity,I am her 3rd home since she was born 19 weeks ago and this will be her last home. I have named her Lola but she gets called Lollie a lot. We had just managed to get the last 2house trained and carpets cleaned and now have to start again with regular toilet breaks, I am long lead training, at the moment she is acting deaf until she touched the electric fence, and then the cat grabbed her,if only I had a rooster that would chase her, as she grabbed one of the hens, I managed to save the hen but now the chickens are in their yard while she's out.
Has she got GSP in her? If she has, then she should be well trainable and will learn to leave the chooks alone. I have had three GSP cross dogs and they were beautiful animals, affectionate and loving, great family dogs. We had Buster for 17 years and he was an amazing dog. I swear he could read my mind. The only animals he chased were the sheep and we quickly broke him of that. Buster would also just walk past a snake without blinking an eye. I think your girl well turn into a great dog.
Yes She's a pedigree GSP dinee, how did you break Buster from sheep chasing? I know she will be good, she already sits on command, and tonight I told her to stay at the gate while I fed the cows and she did. The only problem that we can't predict is if her rib cage will be big enough to hold her lungs and heart as an adult, that will be a wait and see.

He was only a young pup and I already had him coming back to me, so when he started chasing the sheep I called him straight back to me and took his nuzzle in my hand and really loudly told him off, i did my lolly actually. Only had to do it twice. After that he would take it upon himself to growl at any dog who even looked like chasing the sheep. He was such a good dog.
Ellie on the other hand we got as a Rescue aged 2 also a GSP cross. We could not break her from chasing the kangaroos, luckily we didn‘t have sheep at the time. We nearly lost her to a roo she had chased into the dam, he was all ready to drown her, luckily she was a reluctant swimmer and stayed in the bank barking til I got the lead on her.
She's coming when I call her until she sees the chickens and then she switches off. She tries to run to their pens, I pull on the long lead and say No and praise her when she looks back at me, but I think it will take a while as she is very prey driven
Ah, well sorry to say that sounds like Ellie. Good thing though is that she is young and still will listen. I reckon if you persist you will have a reasonable measure of success with her. Our other GSP Lilly we got as a pup and I just did the no no no with her morning noon and night. She caught on fairly quickly. Unfortunately she turned that hunting urge to reptiles and we lost her to a Tiger snake. I swore off GSP’s after that, I am too old to do the training, even though they are my fav dog of all time. Mind you if someone offered one I would be hard pressed to resist.
Lola will be 2 on Wednesday, still not chicken trained but she comes when she's called now, She is a huge girl and still full of beans, some nights this house is a mad house with 3 dogs chasing each other around it , but there has been a few fights and a few vet visits to have one or other stitched up, we now lock someone up if play gets a bit rough, Lola has never started them but once it starts she won't back down either. She spends hours running around the paddocks with big sticks in her mouth wanting someone to chase her. Also found out that she won't get out of the dam if there's a duck in it, 2 hours 1 afternoon she swam round and round, I had to go in and fetch her out, it wasn't my finest moment as I back right onto a main highway so I had traffic tooting at me as they passed thinking I was skinny dipping ( as if a beached whale would skinny dip)
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
