Red face Hello to everyone here!

Hello, my name is Alfie and I live in a farm in the countryside of UK.

As family we have many dogs to work in the farm. I am 24 years old and so my experience in dogs is low, although I lived with dogs since I was born. I am here to learn about dogs and share anything I know.

About the dogs: We own 2 Rotties, 3 GSDs, 1 Doberman, 1 Belgian Sheepdog, 2 Belgian Malinois, 1 JRT, 1 Poodle, and 2 new puppies Australian Cattle dog and Rottie. That's a total of 13 dogs ... ) LOVE THEM ALL!! (Ooh I forgot our 3 Border Collies - my uncle's in fact)

All dogs work in the farm for herding, guarding, hunting and of course keep us company and make us laugh!

I moved in UK 3 years ago with my family for studies about RES, we build up our farm (just like we used to have in Italy) and now I love to work through internet while being and helping in our farm.

How the hell can I make 13 dogs to sit together for a photo?? Grrr...!
As soon as I get three or four of them to sit the others start to play and they just don't sit for a good photo!! It is much easier to take a pic of the cows...lol!

Should I post pics with cows and sheep and a couple of dogs somewhere in the back of the pic???

Now that I am thinking of this I never took a good pic of my dogs (except from Liza and Emy when babies) and I only have some nice vids. and now I am sad cause I just realized that if anything happens to them (oh please god keep them safe) I will only have my memories and no good pics to show. snif snif

I think now that I am in the mood I will post all their names and some things about their character.

ok let's start from the younger members of the family. Aussy and Rony. Both Australian Cattle dogs a female and a male. I don't have much to say about them as we have them only for a week. I can say though their tough and really funny! They are 3,5 months old.

Then is my best friend Liza a standard poodle. She is 1,5 years old and the most outgoing and friendly, enthousiastic dog I have ever seen! It seems she has a mind of her own for everything! I really catch myself talking to her like she was a real human. I can go everywhere with her and have her off leash. Even if I go out for a drink at night she comes with me...I love that I must admit.

Emy is a very very crazy JRT. She is 2 months older than Liza. She will make you laugh all day long with her hilarious tricks. When she is excited about something she runs like crazy jumping and doing circles and bitting things. She can run all day. When we take her in the field and sees a squirel or a fox she will hunt it till she gets it. Such a stubborn dog. She is the one who runs the whole pack!

Chico is a male Doberman 4 years old from Germany trained as our guard in US in the K-9 training program with my father 2 years ago. He is calm and confident and he always looks at you in the eyes waiting for your command. He can realize an intruder by the time he will enter the farm. He is really good at his "job" and a very hilarious and loving companion. He acts like a baby when we pet him.

Ebony is our oldest member. She is a full-black Belgian Sheepdog and she looks like a wolf more than a dog. She is 13 years old and still a powerfull working dog. She is always calm and serious...well except when tease her and she becomes a playful baby. She knows to do everything in the farm and she is the boss when it comes to fights. She don't even have to fight at all she just growls and every other dog has to shout up and stop fighting and playing.

Chopper is a male GSD and along with Rex and Jessy a male and a female GSD are the three dogs that stands out of the rest. They are brothers and sister and they are a show off!! They always walk like they are the lion king and want to be first at all times. They will do anything to impress you. Especially Chopper is the one who drags the others. Jessy is the last of the three and it seems like she is trying to calm them down.

And now our working machines...the 2 Belgian Malinois. Achilles and Abby a male and a female 2 years old. They are quiet, silent workers. They will do exactly what you want them to do. The best partners to have at work. They herd cows and sheep and protect the farm and even pull small wheel cars with supplies. They don't need treats to learn something new...just show them how you want it and they will perform it for you. You might never catch them excited. They are always calm, confident and ready for work but also very hard and powerful dogs.

And last but not least our 2 Rotties both males both from Germany both 3 years old and both big babies! Always calm and confident they seem to have in control every situation appears. They are really great at herding cows. They also protect the house and the farm and pull medium sized wheel cars with food and supplies for the animals. You can actually go for a ride with them pulling a car.

*at this point I have to make a correction. In my first post I talk about two new puppies an Australian cattle dog and a Rottie ... well they became 2 Australian Cattle dogs. By that time I was assuming that my father will return from Germany with an ACD and a Rottie...but no he surprised us with 2 ACDs!
