She is from a wire dog and a smooth bitch. Brought her home and she wouldn't leave my side. Two weeks later and she has gone mad and is charging around. Not too many obvious vices yet other than she is a little too vocal. Hope you have fun with yours.Lovely looking girl. I have a 6 month old wirehaired bitch who is adorable, full of beans and clearly very intelligent (driving me round the bend at times)
I like 'zoomies', very apt. I went to see a guy locally to get some tips on training last week. Am wondering how much of a compromise having a pet and wanting it to work actually is. I have no interest in organised game shooting any longer and it is more important that she fits in at home. Be interesting to see how it works out. She has taken to shoes.Sounds just like mine apart from she's not too vocal but will pick up anything to hand (mainly the kids socks). She has a mad 5-10 mins every day which the wife calls "the zoomies" which I think is quite apt. Let us know how you get on with things as I love to hear about other dog stories.
I must admit to wanting to go home after work now. Not been like that for a while. She does bring a smile to my face. I have a pet red deer that calved a couple of days ago and i am hoping to bring them up together so that she doesn't chase them.After having Spans for 46 years I discovered Wires, my blood pressure dropped dramatically. I now have 3, all with full CV's . But mainly deer. I have a vocal one at home but never out and about unless she has a deer at bay. All 3 have different coats wiry smooth or labradoodle type. They are fantastic and I will never be without one.Wf1
Mollie likes to point at insects, she looks an absolute treat when she does it. This is normally followed by an elegant jump into the air and diving into the long grass like foxes do. She did put up a pheasant a while back. The noise of it breaking cover had her running in the opposite direction. Made me laugh. I have sort of given up on her being a great gun dog. She also thinks that for about the first 40 metres at least that she can catch a bird on the wing.I have a 5 year old Vizsla bitch who still thinks she is a pup sometimes.
Agree with you about the insecurity thing. My bitch will initially bark at anything new (particularly people) and back off. 10 seconds later and alls well with the world again.
She too is a fussy eater and is prone to getting an upset stomach from time to time.
Best working dog I've ever had. Used her on grouse, pheasant and deer and she's surpassed my expectations.
Haven't quite got her to flush on command as yet, so she can get behind on the beating line when she's on point, which she loves to do.
