UnderTheSun14: I mustve not been clear. I love my working rescuse. I wish I could have her from the beginning because she is so smart and loves to hunt. She has an amazing nose and I play little games with her all the time. My rescuse is a purebread hunting breed. I got her when she was four and they did nothing with her!!!!! She used to freak out at everything, it was so sad. She is very smart and very stubborn and likes to be active all day. I have enjoyed the work we have done together. I dont mind shedding. If I dont swiffer / vacuum daily theere is fur everywhere its just the white fur that I have to pick out that bugs me,

I have a Belgian Malinois who was extremely high energy when I got her. The first year was the hardest. She’s 5 now and has mellowed considerably and while still fairly high energy, she’s a lot less impulsive. She also now has a “brother” to manage (my three year old Catahoula mix). She enjoys that. 🙂

My Future Sister-In-Law and her husband have a Weim, but it was her dog first long before she met Future Brother-In-Law. She absolutely adores him and put in a lot of time up-front getting him socialized and used to people. Now anytime they travel for fun or to visit family, the dog goes with them. They spoil him quite a bit, so he’s a little chubby for a Weim, but super, super sweet. However, he’s been known to steal people food from counters and tables, and he’s gotten to be more of a couch potato as he’s gotten older.
Best of luck with your future new puppy!
