Hi Matt
She is a real stunner!! My dad always says to people to put chew toys in the fridge over night for their new puppy , he says it helps with he teething . She is teeny but I bet she will grow lots now you have her !

My kids were not happy when I had my pup last year as I certainly can't run and she is like a flipping express train. Luckily with our local nature reserve, she can do as many laps of forty nine acres as she likes, while I plod through the middle. Nothing has caught her yet lol, she's bonkers!

Can I show the pic to my family Matt. I have a friend who has one called Kaiser, he's a rescue dog that came with problems but in the right hands he's done really well.

Thanks Matt. Would put a pic on but not sure how on iPad lol Yes he had been abused and took a lot of tlc, but he is well loved now. My own pup was terrified of her own shadow when I got her, but with lots o hard work, she's just the opposite now.

Hi Matt,

What a lovely pup. I hope you have years of fun together. I'm sure you know this anyway but don't leave her unsupervised around your torts. I've heard of even the best-natured dogs inflicting terrible injuries. I'm sure my labs think my torts are meat pies on legs!

I'd put a lid on it too until she is trained Matt. Bulls are very good at scaling. As you know I aleays have a dog or two, but don't trust them ever. It's very rarely nasty dogs that do the damage, but chewers and pups due to the fact that the shell is just like a chew bone. I'm going to have to watch Esther this summer as she's still a young dog and loves to chew, although not at all interested in the torts which is why this foster stayed lol
