Ok, I have decided to not purchase a pup from this breeder after all. It's a long story but certain other things have popped up unfortunately. I am a bit disappointed because I have purchased from them before but anyway....

Question: does anyone know of a female puppy (black/tan or black/red) available from a reputable breeder. I am willing to drive. Heck, I was willing to drive 900 miles in the first place. I live in Texas.

Thanks everyone!

I'm glad you decided against the pup....could have been lifelong management w/ the temperament. Good luck in your search!

Hi,

Sorry things didn't work out, but sounds like it is for the best. Maybe start another thread about your puppy search.

Default Wise decision

One of our dogs, Pele, was a timid pup. I love her to death (she is 11 now) but she never got over being a shy, timid dog. It was okay for us because our alpha female, Peanut, is anything but timid and also is very kind-hearted to all other animals and has always just taken care of Pele and allowed her to "shadow" her. But we have always had to watch Pele and guard against fear biting of strangers and for years she would submissively urinate if anyone looked at her too directly.

In many ways I am most proud of us raising Pele because most people would have gotten rid of her. She is just a black mutt and she has issues, you know? But she has been a great dog in a lot of ways. We just had to understand and manage her.

Next to raising our kids, I think the day Pele came without prompting and offered her paw to a frequent visitor to our home was one of my proudest moments, lol. She has grown a LOT.

I am glad you passed on this puppy. I am sorry, but if the pup wouldn't play with the littermates, and is having a significant change in behavior, it very well can have internal injuries, as well as structural damage. Or it can have weak nerves. In any case, injury + change of behavior = vet visit. Not doing that, would be a deal breaker for me.
