    Talking The family grew today

    Well the family grew today with the addition of this little guy who is fearless to say the least. I need a name for him and so far the only one I have come up with is Rambo because he no qualms about instantly going after Cassie and trying to show the 110lb monster who's boss. He didn't waste his time with the 20lb cat Hermy who is almost 3 times his size, no, he went after the one 100 times his size. He's a spunky thing that was dumped behind a friends house and I think he is part Pitbull and Chow, he's black and brown with white chest and pink and black tounge. If turned over to the dhelter in Indy they would euthanise him because they don't want either breed in the city. Cassie is part Rot and Pitbull which may be why they get along so well, she's already acting like his "mommy".

    Any name ideas welcomed, hopefully I'll decide on one tomorrow.

    You could call him Lucky, because thanks to you, he definitely is.

    Re: The family grew today

    My favorite dog name is Guess.
    From an old western but I don't remember the one but the guy kept asking the family what the dog's name was and they'd say, "Guess".
    He finally figured it out at the end.

    Re: The family grew today

    lol, he's cute now.....I wonder how big this one will get? Just what I needed, second garbage disposal, this guy eats a lot, and amazingly Cassie lets him eat from HER dish but won't let the cat near it. Of course the cat needs a diet....
    And there won't be any new camera gear for a long time as I now have more vet bills and food bills. So far everyone is getting along, although I didn't get much sleep last night

    Cute little addition John. I've got a soft spot for dogs and love to see people rescue and/or adopt strays and "undesirables". As if there's such a thing as an undesirable pup. I think we should expect to see the occasional updates as he grows up.

    Re: The family grew today

    He's so cute JS! We are getting a puppy too. After months of waiting he/she was born on 12-1.

    I think you have the mix down right. I totally see both.

    No clue on names, but I'd love to see some pics of him with Cassie.

    GIZMO!

    Why, because he sounds like those crazy Gremlins in the movie Gremlins, especially when put into his cage so the cat and Cassie can get a nap..... now if I could get some sleep

    Re: The family grew today

    JS

    Nice one - his paws don't look that big in the pics so he may not grow huge but, then you can't see them clearly.

    Loads of respect for rescuing him. All my dogs have been from rescue centres and never had any problems with them, except for Meggie who so far has killed 3 hedgehogs and 4 birds, and all have been partly eaten, and she still eats all of the food that we give her and puts no weight on. She's a Welsh Terrier.

    Can't wait to see the three of them together.

    Re: The family grew today

    Everyone said Cassie would be small....but she is 110lbs so I think a lot has to do with what you feed them. I have used nothing but puppy food for all my puppies and it's like giving them Miracle grow

    Well, it obviously has to be something hyper-masculine, like Butch, Killer, Conan, Thor,...you get the idea.

    He is a cute guy!
