When my wife and I first got married we picked up a pound puppy (at my wifes insistance) that was a cross between a German Sheppard and a Collie (aka Lassie) that was so small he fit in the palm of my hand. He then turned into a 125 pound monster...lol
After his passing we decided to go with a little smaller breed and got a Border Collie that we've had for 12 years now. The Border is reaching the range of expected life span and we've been discussing what we're going to do when he passes away and now we want to go even smaller. It seems as I get older my dogs are getting smaller.

Thanks Very Happy

Actually, people think the females look a lot like a boxer. We get that all the time. These dogs make a great companion to any animal/person, they have the greatest temperment for such a big dog. I just wouldn't recommend 2 males(they'll likely fight once they're mature). These guys take a lot of getting used to, with the slobber and all(the stuff literally flies when they shake their heads, you'll find it on your walls, on the ceiling....everywhere). The movie "Turner & Hooch" portrays this pretty accurately!!

There's nothing wrong with a pound puppy.....that's good that there are people out there that rescue these poor pound pups. I like border collies as well, they're VERY, VERY smart! I also have 2 rotti's that are "aging gracefully", one is 12 and the other will be 10 this year.

My first Dogue de Bordeaux was from a "not so reputable breeder", we had no intentions of breeding, got him from a buddy at work for $500 and had him neutered asap. He has a horrible temperment, and by the time he was a year old, he had SEVERE HIP DISPLAYSIA. As for his temperment, I mean, he's a great dog to us(well, my wife at least.....he's her "body guard", sometimes a little too much of one when he tries to keep me away from her), barks his head off at anyone he doesn't know or remember(his bark is far worse than his bite though, he'll take off away from you before you could get anywhere near him....he'll eventually warm up, but it takes a while).

We got into breeding after I got my 2nd bordeaux, we imported her from Hungary with the intentions of getting into showing and potentially breeding(pending on her health/temperment/quality, all of which were excellent). We bred her with imported semen from a male in Slovakia which produced 2 of our dogues we own, as well as the mother of another dogue we co-own(grand-daughter of our 2nd bordeaux). We've been into this breed now for over 6 years, and have just had our 2nd litter. We now have 4 bordeaux(2 of which we imported from Europe....Hungary, and Croatia), and co-own 2 more(and possibly 2 more will be co-owned from this latest litter).

Anyways, the point is, When I got my first Bordeaux, I WAS HOOKED!! I just fell in love with the breed, and can't see myself with another breed of dog(well, maybe an Olde English Bulldog....lol, I love them too), but who knows, maybe the more I age, the smaller my dog will be? I'm 31 now, so we'll see what happens when I hit 40......50..... Very Happy

WOW, what a novel I just wrote.....lol, ok, I'm done now Laughing

I have to give you credit. I cant begin to imagine the logistics of purchasing and importing an animal from Hungary into Canada. That really tells me how Hooked you actually are on Bordeaux's.
Our Border is a pure bred that we purchased from a reputable local breeder that specializes in working border collies for hearding purposes. He is as smart as a whip and the worlds biggest suck.
The main issue we have with our Border is the fact he hates the telephone!! If it rings, he losses it and barks like crazy. If you pick up the phone and start dialing and he hears the tones from each button push he comes running and dances around like he wants to bite and eat the reciever. Makes for a pita when people call and you have to appologize cause you cant here what their saying over the barking...lol

That is funny, he really hates the phone that much.....lol.....you guys must talk on the phone alot.....hahahahaha.....must be his way of telling you that you talk on the phone too much....lol

As for importing a dog in from Hungary, it's actually quite simple, you just pay for the dog with a wire transfer, they ship the dog via airplane, to your local airport, then you go pick it up, but you gotta bring extra cash with you....I learned that the hard way, when I first imported, I(luckily) brought cash with me(just in case), and customs charged me about $600 which I HAD to pay before I could take the dog home with me....It's easier if you're importing from the USA, cause you just get the dog shipped to the nearest airport to the border, but still on the US side, drive over and pick the dog up, and drive back across the border and VOILA, NO customs charges(well, you just have to make sure you don't tell customs that you just bought a dog and are bringing it back across, just tell them, you already had the dog with you when you came to the USA, or you're only bringing it over for a couple months). Now with the mandatory passport bull$hit, it's a bit more of a hassle, but still worth it.
