Thanks. :)

Well she's been here about a week and a half now, and you'd think she'd been here all her life. Most definitely likes her new home. :)

Thanks. :)

I think she is begnning to lose some weight now. With the combination of cutting down hoe much she eats, and giving her plenty of excercise, it seems to have done the trick. I still feel terrible if I eat anything in front of her though. :( But I'm just too soft.

I still think she might be purebred terrier - there is a terrier just like her - classic look. I am just no expert in terriers.

Whatever she is, the main thing is for her to be healthy and happy in her new home. She deserves it! :D

While you may be right, there's no such thing as just a "Terrier". Terrier is the name for a group of dogs. There are 7:

working (Husky, Doberman, great dane etc)
Pastoral (sheepdog types like border collie, GSD, bearded collie, australian cattle dog)
Terrier (scottish terrier, airdale terrier, bull terrier)
utility (poodle, schnauzer, japanese akita)
Gundog (labrador, setters, pointers)
hound (whippet, rodesian ridgeback, bloodhound)
Toy (yorkshire terrier, pug, chuhuahua, papillion)

In the terrier group there are loads of different breeds, not just one. She may well be a mix of different terriers which I guess makes her a pure terrier. What I meant when I said she was a mix of everything was that she wasn't purely one breed, there were different ones in her, regardless of what group they come from. Sorry for the confusion.

Sorry for throwing all the info at you as well, LOL. I spent a much too large portion of my childhood at dog shows with my mum. She showed Yorkshire Terriers and judges a variety of breeds. Hard not to pick some of the different breeds up as you go along.

And thanks for the well wishes. She certainly seems happy and healthy and wth any luck it will stay that way. The dog I had as a child, who lives with my mum, has been up for a few days and the 2 of them seem to get on very well. lisa likes to play a bit too much though, and bonnie gets a bit crabit with her but apart from that, they share a seat on the couch etc. It's ncie to see the pair of them together. :)

Thanks for the info! :D

I'm also into dogs, but know very little about the terrier group. The Yorkshire is extremely popular here where I live. There are some Westies and Scotch terriers, Jack Russel's are 'in fashion', we even have one Kerry blue neighbour, but Airedales unfortunately have become extremely rare. They are wonderful dogs!

By the way which group does the Dalmatian belong according to your classification? I know some classify it as a Utility dog. I can make my dog pull small amount of loads in winter when we have snow. last year she could still pull my daughter.

As to your lovely dog, I thought it might be purebred Australian terrier. But any terrier is 'pure' terrier - it's a personality!

she is really gourgeous :D, and looks healthy too :D
she looks to me like she could have a bit of cairn or norwich terrier in her because of the ears and the muzzle lol, but im not expert on certain breeds, just had dogs since young lol
Good luck :D
