    I think a big reason I found myself so attracted to the crested chickens is because I have Chinese Crested dogs. I have four! I've also been volunteering for Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue for over 8 years and foster...a LOT of sweeties! Here mine are, dressed as hippies. Demi • Chip • "Dancing Nathan" • Kramer • "Hot Mess Gilligan" // (Chip, the yorkie, passed away last December) 22491742_886754448150416_3000702715269247605_n.jpg I find, the older they get, the better they behave. lol. Actually, they've always been really well-adjusted dogs, for the most part. (Nathan is my "problem child") It does require consistency and routine. And when fosters join us, they seem to follow my dogs' cues. It's amazing how great everyone seems to get along.

    We take ours out on a walk just about every morning so he gets his exercise. He’s still young so he’s a little crazy still.

    WOW! This is so crazy!!! We got a new puppy a couple weekse ago, and she is brindle with white markings, and her mother was a Boston bull terrier, but her dad is a mystery who kinda looks like a Chihuahua mix (but he's super cute, not like the dog you think of when you hear Chihuahua)

    :lau:gig this pic is priceless:gig

    I hope you love her! If she's like my dog, she'll probably be spunky and really smart. Lily is a huge people pleaser, too, so she's been super easy to train :)

    :loveI had a Chinese Crested named Lily...she was a busy little bee, super sweet. Not hairless which is why she was unwanted by her previous owner. I adored her. Love the hippie look giggle.gif

Started with taking one by one on leash walking by the chickens and praising when they payed no mind then after a day or 2 switched to the collars

    I have an overgrown rat named Buzz, he's really a Chaweenie but he looks like a really badly bred Min Pin (what I thought he was when I first met him). He's all of 13 pounds and was going to be put down due to being aggressive and dangerous... He was showing a combination of fear biting and trying to guard / protect his people which would have been fine if his people weren't small children who would be yelled at fairly frequently, then the mutt would rush to the rescue and get himself in trouble. He's fine now, just a little food aggressive (he hackles up and shows teeth if I take his food but he doesn't touch me) but I pin that on the fact that he lives with cats that are bigger than he is and try to steal his food so he has to be a little aggressive to keep them away.

    Lucky is the love of my life. I adopted her almost 8 years ago. She turned 15 on July 4th. She's a long haired chocolate and tan dachshund (mini) she went down with IVDD in April 2010 so she'd had back surgery for a ruptured disc before I adopted her. I would have to say take lots of car rides and maybe visits to the vet's office just to say hi - it breaks my heart to see her entire little body shaking for the ride and the visit. I don't breed or show her, or dogs at all.
