I am sure that there is a picture of my Reni on here somewhere but rather then look - I'll just post a couple more!

Here is one of Reni (the big Belgian Sheepdog) and Rusty (the little black and tan pomeranian).

This is the day we brought him home.

And an extra of Rusty - just because it is so darn cute.

These are the best pictures I have. But I am hoping to get a new camera very, very soon and I have big plans for the summer so we should have plenty more before too awful long.

I like him well enough but I seriously doubt I will ever get another. When he wouldn't show, he was kind of "put on a back burner" so to speak. He has plenty of issues that we are working through.

For the first 4 months, he couldn't be loose with Rusty without wearing a muzzle. He has picked the little guy up and shaken him like a ragdoll a couple of times. Scared the you-know-what out of me - got Rusty wet. This doesn't happen anymore, but he WILL snap at an unknown dog that comes near him.

His was poorly socialized and we will be working more on that this summer. I would also like to get him into a class with other dogs because I got him with an eye toward getting some obedience titles on him.

More like a couple of weeks from now, but I promise to post more then.

And I will be adding a magnifying glass to my shopping list to send to you so that you can see them better.;)

:mad: I don't believe you! You're lying :yell: !

Just look at that first photo with Reni :angel: laying quietly next to his buddy, his best pal Rusty :cloud9: :p

I can so relate to you here :rolleyes:. I admire you for sticking with it though :thumbs up .

Honestly, from what I can see with such little itsy bitsy photos :laughing:, both Reni and Rusty are adorable :lovestruck:. I love seeing the contrast of little dogs and big dogs together. Do they play much with each other now?

Can't wait to see a photo thread with Reni and his new ribbons :thumbs up .

I got Reni in March and that picture was taken in August. About an hour after that picture was taken, Rusty got a bit too rambunctious and Reni pitched him across the room. :rolleyes: While Reni certainly has the power and size to do serious damage to Rusty, he has never more then gotten his fur wet.

They have very different styles of playing. LOL! Rusty will pester and pester Reni to play. When Reni finally joins in - Rusty runs like hell! The problem is that Reni likes to step on his playmates and Rusty is afraid he'll get mashed like a bug!

Reni is plenty smart, but extremely soft. In almost a year, I have yet to find a correction (on a flat collar, no less) that doesn't cause him to flinch and shut down. I have a halti and the results with that are really no better. He also has an extremely sensative stomach, so treat training is not an option.

This boy is going to be a ton of work!

Oh - and I am planning to start training Rusty to track! That ought to be a hoot!
