Update on Tasha & Mishka

Update on Tasha & Mishka

Adopted: Tasha joined us in June, 2018 and we then foster failed Mishka in July, 2019

Dog’s former name: Both girls kept their SAB names

What are the best things about your dog?
They are SO smart; sometimes too smart for their own good and unbelievably loyal. They also give “hugs” to the people they love; where they stand on their hind legs and wrap their front legs around your neck. Hugs are over when they say it’s over. They also have a howl that sounds like a whale; it’s been dubbed their “orca call.”

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
The floofs were bred for winter so anytime they can spend outside in the snow is their favorite. As LGDs, they also love to patrol and monitor the neighborhood.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Tasha was in a fashion show! She loves to model.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
There’s a lot of stigma around the ovcharka breed as well; if people have heard of the breed they usually assume the dogs are aggressive and unsafe to be around. We enjoy proving them wrong.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
The orca sisters!

FAST FIVE with Tasha AND Mishka

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? PIGGY. Also, Tash is on a diet and asks that you all send food.
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Sleep, but only in the winter. In the summer it’s too hot for beds.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car rides!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Tasha hates it; Mishka will splash all day
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Snow!!!

Update on Piper

Update on Piper

Adopted: September 20, 2018

Dog’s former name: Quorra

What are the best things about your dog?
She is the biggest love bug and absolutely loves cuddles. She’s always cuddling with her big brother or spooning with momma at night. She grunts a lot in the morning and refuses to come downstairs without a hug first. When she’s feeling very spoiled, she demands to be carried around like a baby (she gets her way… a lot).

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Piper loves walks, digging in her new backyard (we’re working on it), and play dates with her best friend Bo.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
I’ve never had a dog that so many of my friends told me was “a little lacking in the brain department” before. But her sweet personality makes up for the fact that she’s a slow learner. I wouldn’t change her for anything.

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
People often ask about the bald spots on her back and forget she’s a pit.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Toots, Tootsie Roll, Small Fry

FAST FIVE with Piper

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Piggy
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? She thinks she’s too good for dog beds.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Car Rides
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? No way, she doesn’t even like rain.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Sunbathing all day!

Update on Tux

Update on Tux

Adopted: September, 2018

Dog’s former name: Mossimo

What are the best things about your dog?
Tux is full of love and loyalty. He has this thing he does where he looks up at his humans with only his eyeballs, that melts my heart.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Tux has spent his last year with our family, snuggling, dog parking, trying out cabin/lake life, looking up to and annoying his big dog brother Zeus and making friends: both people and dogs! He also does zoomies so fast in the back yard that his back legs get ahead of this front sometimes!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
Tux looks more like a lab but he has a very protective nature. Sometimes people are afraid of his bark but I’ve learned that if new people come over to our house, we just need to meet them outside so Tux knows it’s okay for them to come in our home, and then we can all go inside together.

Does your dog have any nicknames?
“Tuxi- Boo Boo”, “Mr. T”, “T-Money”, and “Ceedo”

FAST FIVE with Tux

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? Not picky at all
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Unstuff as a puppy, now sleep on
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Tux loves Car rides!
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? Loves water as long as he can touch.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? Tux will play outside in rain, shine, sun or snow!

Update on Marv

Update on Marv

Adopted: September, 2018

Dog’s former name: Marv

What are the best things about your dog?
He is patient with me and loves being a part of our family… that’s what he says anyway.

Tell us about your dogs favorite activities, sports or training:
Marv loves treats, and has worked to master skills to get treats. He will sit pretty and shake your hand and lay down for your to give him treats.
He will chase, balls, sticks, snow balls, etc. and even trade you for a treat.

Do you have any extraordinary adventures or accomplishments?
Marv is friendly with everyone and every dog he meets. Taking him new places; he’s always ready to go (with a boost up into the truck) and ready to meet new people and play!

How do people react to your “pit bull”?
People admire Marv for his mastiff look, and are kind of perplexed when we tell them he’s a pitbull mix. “He’s only 2 feet tall. Of course he’s a mix. “

Does your dog have any nicknames?
Nahh. Marv is who he is, and he relates well with his name. The most variation from there is, he get called Dog.

FAST FIVE with Marv the Dog

  1. Food: Piggy or picky? He eats most any food he’s given, which is why we try to limit his human food.
  2. Dog beds: Sleep on or unstuff? Marv has dog beds in every room of the house, and loves lounging on them when we are in the same room.
  3. Travel: Car rides or car sick? Marv drool and blow out his coat on every car ride, but that doesn’t stop him from getting right in there.
  4. Water: No way or splash all day? He never met a bucket of water that didn’t taste good. But he’s definitely not a fan of being IN water.
  5. Seasons: A day in the sun or a day in the snow? He’s a summer baby and it shows. Snow and even rain are not his friend.
