Hello from Scotland...
Just introducing myself (Elle) and Squire Charlie Bear Wooflington (Charlie) my wee shi tzu x cavalier x border terrier.
He's an oober intelligent, strange looking loveable little creature and my first dog. He's quite aloof, in that affection is on his terms. Which suits me. He is also an extremely fast learner. I managed to house train him in exactly one week from 8 weeks old. We never even got through a whole pack of puppy pads. Consistancey and patience is the key!
He has his positives and negatives, but doesn't every dog. On the whole he is a joy to own and I am extremely lucky to have my little oddity. I'll post pictures of him in the picture section
A wee bit about me, I'm the mad snakie lady with exactly 20 snakes (of various species) as well as giant african land snails, tarantulas and a cat. This whole doggy thing is very new to me as I am used to having extremely independant pets. Charlie is a challange indeed.... heck even having to feed him more than once a week is a difficult concept LOL. But we are managing and I hope I can learn a lot from the experiences of other people on this forum
