I see a recurring theme of rescued dogs here. That's so awesome.

Rescues are so kick-ass. They usually so damn grateful to their new pack and super loyal.

<snip>

Bastards deserve a righteous ass kicking.

Agreed!  That fella I posted was abandoned via snowmobile along with 6 of his litter mates in the middle of February in bitter cold on the border of Idaho and Utah.  We found him whimpering and alone while we were out skiing...







This was his first night :)


I was tracking him in the snow, and thought..no way this is a puppy! :o
He turned into a fantastic dog, so glad we found him.


What a miracle...everyday there are dogs abandoned and mistreated.

It's great to hear about the one's that have been rescued.

I commend you for your efforts.  :)

Thanks Bluesman, he's a shelter special. Half Pointer and Half Great Dane. He's getting older, and smells like corn chips for some reason.

Not my dog in avatar but very representative of him. Have had rescue dogs earlier in life but the past two have been high falootin' bird dogs. ALL of my dogs live better than a lot of children in this country. I don't give a rip about most adults but when it comes to kids and animals, you won't find a more fierce defender. Anyone who would violate the innocence of either receives no mercy from me.

What kinda birds you hunt maxieboy? Growing up, we had a Brittany Spaniel (Jody) that was an amazing pointer/retriever for quail and dove. My dad told me a story once that Jody caught a pheasant on the fly one hunt. I really want to get one, but I'm afraid no dog will live up to Jody and on top of that, I have no idea how to go about training one, let alone the time to do it. So I'm happy just hunting dove for now and retrieving them myself.

This is Hanna, she will check in on me from time to time while brewing. Usually wanting to play.

Now that is a beautiful German Sheppard you have there!

Very Intelligent Dogs. My wife wants one, but we already have two dogs and two cats...but hey what's one more dog ...right...  8)

Thanks. One more dog would not hurt. Alot of people have three. ;)

Also, because of similar environs and the willingness to stay put while pointed, woodcock. Sadly, it's population is trending downward and presents a dilemma for the die hard wingshooter. They are easily detected by a good dog and hold so well when pointed, pulling the trigger is now a very tough choice.

Those knuckleheads are some really beautiful looking canines....and healthy looking too.

I really believe dogs should be adopted in pairs...It's companionship...a freind to hang out with...

and the puppy...that pup looks like a real character... 8)

I love the one blue eye.

couldn't agree more.  2 weeks after we got abby, we took her to the shelter and let her pick her brother out.  IMO they need some kind of pack (even if at times its only the 2 of them), otherwise they get lonely.

I think Husky's are some of the coolest looking dogs...they have the prettiest eyes of all dogs.

You have a beautiful looking bunch!  8)

Sorry to hear about Niko.  :(
