Ugly poopy alert!!! (Probably best to cover your eyes).

Two absolutely gorgeous Dalmatian puppies in my local rescue.

I remember the conversations that we had on this forum a few years ago regarding Caucasian Shepherds, that they would be the next "must have" breed that would soon end up in numbers in rescue. This is the third one that I've seen in as many days. I wonder how the lady that bought a puppy from an "accidental" brother/sister mating is getting on. Was she called Kim? If I remember correctly she regretted getting the puppy, but was determined not to let it down. I hope it worked out well for her .....

They have increased in numbers. I saw one just round the corner from me last year - pup by the looks, maybe 7 months old. Huge, and dragging its owner down the street.

I still don't think they'll really catch on because of their nature - absolutely huge, serious guarding instinct, tendency not to accept new people once adult even if well socialised, which is exactly what they are often used for in their homeland - home guarders that won't let anyone but the person they grew up with in. I read a description once that went along the lines of 'intruders can expect to be killed by these dogs'.

There are always exceptions, of course - I know someone who took on a young adult bitch who is lovely and soft from what she's posted, and settled in with her dogs well. But on the whole they are not suitable as pets in our type of environment.

The Caucasian whilst still relatively uncommon has been appearing more for a while now. Gsdr have been posting them for 4 or 5 years & currently list 9 for rehoming.

Dogs Trust Ilfracombe also had a young one recently (looks like he's been rehomed now) https://www.dogstrust.org.uk/our-centres/il...t-dog-in-the-uk

Oh if only - absolutely number one breed on my wishlist but this little boy needs a lot more than I could offer him.

I have said this before; why cant these unusual breeds go to a breed rescue where experts and breeders can rehome their unusual breed. Many breed rescues have a waiting list for adopters who maybe dont want to start with a puppy. How will these people know where these dog are if they are scattered all over the county.

Most breeders will know who bred the dog and can black ball them.

I should also say that not all breed rescues will take in every dog in their breed.
