The Boxer mix maybe but my requirements are kind of specific! But thank you for rescuing!

And a Shepard/Akita mix? Hope they are very careful in placing those!
Oh wow what a pretty dog. I hope you can find one.

Dogtown is awesome. I've visited out there once.

Well best guess is Shepherd/Akita always hard to say with rescue. Mama is full Shepherd and boyfriend looks to be a an Akita mix. They came in as strays together about a week before she had the puppies.

Safe Haven is really careful on all their placements. Before I adopted my first girl from there I had to go through all the checks. They know I have both Shepherd and Akita experience and no small kids at home.

But Fallon might come into play because I want a Boxer or Pitt/American Bull Dog mix. Gunther my first dog was a BullMastiff/PittMix and a very gentle sweet dog.

And while not uncommon it's not a Breeder dog it's a Bandawgge. I just want a Big A$$ dog with a Boxer face! Note to those in the know..Boxer/ABD is bigger than a Euro Boxer!

Anyway most likely that one will come from a BYB hence maybe Fallon? Willing to chance it on a mix. With the right background and early puppyhood.

Rocky (avatar) is a very good well behaved boy but much much different than my bully guys. I learned a lot with him and he's what I expect in a dog now but the wife says.."no more GSD's."

He worried the crap out of her, unlike the Mastiff/Pitt and our Boxer...Rocky "did not take kindly to strangers!"
Well rather than a BYB keep rescue in mind. We occasionally get puppies in at Safe Haven out in Yerington and LCAS always has a batch of puppies. Currently we have Shepherd /Akita puppies which is where I'm getting my boy at.

shepherdmom Just a quick update. Soaked xpen in super hot water mixed with dawn, scrubbed it down good. Rinsed completely. Then took 2 gallons of water mixed with 1 cup bleach and poured over the entire thing. Let sit for a full 10 min. Again rinsed with super hot water. Now sitting in the fresh air and sun to dry. (recommended by someone else). Will then stick in a closet for the next several weeks until the puppy comes home. Puppy does not come home for several more weeks so hopefully by then it will smell like our house and be all ready for the new pup.

I thought beach was the only thing that killed Parvo?

Colie CVT My mom taught me well! I went into veterinary medicine rather than deal with kids, but she always cleans those toys in soapy water, then hits them with bleach solution. That tends to be the key with bleach solutions.

I don't blame you for wanting to be cautious either. Parvo runs rampant in my area. :/ I am more afraid of randomly picking it up out and about than when we even have a parvo positive pup at my work.

Bleach solutions are fairly effective. My mom has worked in child care forever and one day her classroom was picked for a comparison of viruses/bacteria grown from toys that the kids played with. My mom is religious about cleaning toys and spraying them with bleach solution. Nothing at all grew from her toys! The other toy grew all kinds of wonderful bacteria lol. We still use bleach as a staple at the clinics I work at when dealing with parvo. But you always have to clean the mess completely up, THEN bleach it. A 1:30 solution is what we tend to use and is recommended for killing the virus.
Thanks.. I intend to scrub it down before bleaching.

I'm a 7 year daycare veteran. Bleach is the s*** but a soapy water wash does need to be done first.
