PREVIOUS BUYER LETTERS
I don't know if you remember me, I bought one of your pups last year, Brooks here in Boca Raton introduced me to you guys. Just wanted to send you guys some pics of him! Hope all is well, Axel (Doberman) is his shadow, vice versa. They are always with each other, they sleep on top of each other, they tease each other. The Chihuahua is my girlfriends and he loves bitting and pulling Omens tail. Omen's personality is very relaxed, he is independent and does not seek attention from others that he doesn't know. He is a little skeptic of men and un neutered male dogs, he does not trust them 100%. He is definitely bound to his pack though, he looks out for Axel, Turbo (Chihuahua), my girlfriend and myself. He listens really well and is very obedient. My friend also bought a pup from you guys I went to see him the other day, he was so cute and had a more accepting personality and was running around like a mad man. I have another couple that are looking for a hybrid pup. Are there any litters that you would suggest now or any upcoming ones? Alex
Shiro, our baby boy, is a wonderful family member! And although we still call him a baby, he is huge, haha. But we can tell he want a dogie friend to play with, so we are looking to get another pup in a few months. Jamison
The little guy had a full, rich day. We stopped off in Primm/Stateline on the way home to say hi to friends. Every year one of the Grand Prix Series' dirt bike races is held there on the first weekend of May. It's hosted by Buffalo Bill's casino and put on by one of the clubs in AMA District 37. We watched the ladies'/60+ seniors' race and part of the first morning practice. A couple of little girls were petting him and he slept while, literally 100+, dirt bikes raced past us within 15 feet of him. He climbed on front tires of bikes sitting in the pits - even one that was running! Then later on, he took a nap under the stand of one bike.
He like bikes and he really likes people. His eyes were a magnet for kids and adults, guys and girls. There was a young disabled (cerebral palsy I think) kid in a wheelchair that was so excited about him. Thor sat in his lap so still and gently and received petting while the kid's family took a million group pictures. The kid's mom said that it made his day, if not his whole week. It was fascinating because he wanted to play rough with the other kids, licking and kissing and squirming around, but he seemed to know to be gentle and calm around this kid in the wheelchair. Anyway... he had a great time at the races. He got so much attention it was making me jealous!
He walks well on leash and follows behind always. A couple times he was called by Mark to run on ahead of me, but he would only catch up to Teeka and Mark, and then he fell in behind Teeka, letting her lead the way. We've had many dogs in our lives, but none that ever exhibited real pack behaviors like that.
Once we got home we worked on meeting the rest of the pack. He was accepted well and he is really good around our old man, Tonka, who can't walk very well. He got a couple gentle corrections for trying to play rough, and within a couple hours he began giving respectful space and focusing his play action on the Husky only. At dinner time and at breakfast this morning, we had him sit down in his feeding spot, and he waited patiently while I made his food. He has really good manners and we notice that he is extremely focused and watches everything around him. He doesn't just charge into everything (although he does plenty of charging into things). There are times when he sits so calmly and alert... it's kind of eerie for a pup so young. He's not allowed upstairs yet so we put him to bed in the kitchen that we fenced in. The Husky was left inside the area with him for company. They had the doggie door to the outside, but he seemed very content on a soft wool blanket in a cardboard box that we laid on its side. Teeka usually sleeps outside (her choice) and she went out shortly after Thor went to sleep. In the morning, we found him outside sleeping next to her. I don't know if he had a dog door at home, but he learned how to use it in about 5 minutes of coming home to us. He heads for the door (or at least the kitchen) when he has to pee or poo. He hasn't made it outside on his own yet in time, but he seems to get the idea, so we are pretty confident that it wont take long to housebreak him once he has muscle control, and then, we can give him unsupervised run of the house. Even after such a big adventure yesterday he's pooping normal. He seems really healthy and well-adjusted to anything that gets thrown at him. We are so happy and grateful for that!
He likes to chew. Everything and Anything. He's definitely a handful. He goes into play-mode like crazy, then he power-naps, then starts over again. He's going to need intensive training and supervision for a while, but we knew that was coming. Wolf trait #2 that we noticed: when he's outside clamoring to get back in, he doesn't yip or cry or randomly claw at the door. He sits down, points his nose at the sky and howwwwls. I can't wait till he's older and his "voice changes" to an adult howl. It sounds so beautiful. Beats the heck out of the neighbor's dog that yaps constantly! We aren't certain about keeping the name Thor. A few suggestions we got at the races: PreMix (he got splashed with a couple drops of fuel while sleeping under the bike that was being prepped for the next race), Katoom (a nickname for KTM dirtbikes), and Knobbie (since he likes to chew on knobbie bike tires). Time will tell.
Thank you very much again for helping make us have Tala possible. She is the sweetest little girl always looking to get the family playing. Watching her go through all of her firsts has given us quite a few laughs. We could not have asked for a better addition to the family.
Thank you again,
Janelle and Corey
Here is a picture of my dad's hybrid dog that we got a while ago. His name is "Wolf". He has a great personality. He loves people, other dogs and animals, and we couldn't be happier. Please forward this to the breeder.
