She's absolutely beautiful, Renee. I hope she gets adopted out into the perfect Fila home.
Oh no . . . . or this guy: http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=9698929
I am SO buying a lottery ticket tonight
If you do win the lottery, send some my way. LOL
Both are beautiful dogs. Hope they both find the right home.
OMG mom that is jsut pure evil you know that right?? I just got my paycheck today too LOL.
Oh goodness. It is petfinder day today isn't it? Stop pulling at my heartstrings! I am way too easy to get to cave.
Try them doing it with a breed you have been wanting for YEARS!!!!! and have to wait a few more years to be able to consider a puppy.
Oh they're such pretty dogs. I hope they get a good home for the holidays.
I think they need to find mine Grace. What you think? Think I can talk my mom into 2 Filas LOL
Do it! Those are some beautiful dogs. I think the breed is so beautiful though I don't think they'd ever match my lifestyle. Border collies are for me forsure... but jeez. I'd love to meet someone with a Fila. They're stunning.
Id try if i had a fighting chance LOL. First Im having my baby in Feb. so thats one reason she will say no plus shes already said no more dogs not even a chi LOL.
Paige, I'm a die hard BC person but one of the few other breeds I'd consider is the Fila. They're a "thinking" breed too, very similar in intelligence. They're more independent, but that's to be expected considering they were bred to work more independently of humans. I really like the breed but the one thing I want to see firsthand is their ability to work livestock.
I might get to train a Fila puppy for a friend next summer!
If you win will you share enough so VIctor can have a little dog of his own when MAry leaves us? HE was so tender to that baby chi at Petsmart, standing on his hind legs with his front legs crossed sniffing and nudgin...he plays so nice with the ones at the guild, and i can't afford to give him or a petfinder dog that...sad isn't it?
The only reason I tell myself most breeds are not for me is because if I allow myself to think more are I'd have 163 dogs. I already am tempted to take every homeless BC and BC mix home. Don't get me started on other breeds or I'll be introuble of TMDS (too many dogs syndrome).
Poor girl. $800 seems like a very high adoption fee, or maybe I'm just ignorant about the cost of a Fila. Lovely dog, although the breed definatly isn't for me.
Atleast the adoption fee is high so that should help sort out some of the people with no idea, and it sounds like they'll make sure she goes to a knowledgable home.
but omg talk about wnting to win the lottery, i found a 9 month and a 10 month old BC's in rescues just here, making room for xmas's new puppy I suppose.
WOW Renee, she is gorgeous.
I have to wonder, though.. are they serious about the $800 adoption fee? Or is that just to weed out people who think "WOW! I want a guard dog!"
Both are beautiful. I feel extra sorry for the boy. He's skin and bones and big time depressed! Seems as if he'd rather starve to death than live without that one special person to serve and protect. Heart breaking!
Oh those poor dogs...being abandonded is hard enough on any dog, but crushing for a Fila...
I agree the adoption fee is a bit much, though she is having to go through heartworm treatment...maybe it is just to scare off those who really have no idea.
