Congratulations to the Skye Terrier, Charlie, who won the National Dog Show today!

The Skye Terrier is a 30-40 pound hunting dog from Scotland. They were originally

bred to hunt

fox, badger, and otter. They can be great obedience, agility, tracking, and/or pet therapy dogs, as well as lovable companions. Their ears can be droopy, or pricked, while their long coats can be black, blue, cream, fawn, grey, platinum, or silver. 

In the 19th century, Skye Terriers were the most popular breed to have in Scotland, but now rank 171 out of

the

178 most popular breeds (in the US). They are also at risk for extinction, with only 49 new puppies registered last year. This even tempered dog has an average amount of energy, is good with kids and other pets, but requires daily grooming to keep their coat mat free.

In response to the person saying the photos of pit bulls you post are not actually of pit bulls: I’m not sure which photos they’re referring to, but the term "pit bull" doesn’t refer to a specific breed. Rather, it’s a term used for a wide range of breeds with similar characteristics (stocky, broad-chested, muscular, square-ish face/skull, etc). For example, both a bull terrier and an American bulldog are pit bulls.

Ehh, while there are plenty of people who agree, I think for the sake of misrepresentation – this shouldn’t be true.

The issue is that “pit bulls” are targeted negatively in many ways. Whether they are instantly pts at shelters, banned, or used for fighting, there really shouldn’t be a blanket term that effects more, and more breeds with this stigma.

The American Pit Bull Terrier is not the same as a Bull Terrier, and an American Staffordshire Terrier is not the same as an American Bulldog. But calling an American Bulldog a pit bull will create more and more people who believe it to be true, then identify any bully looking breed like a cane corso or even a boxer as a pit bull, and ultimately put these dogs at the same risk.

Imagine your boxer getting called a pit bull, like what? And some of these people have authority to take them away! Ah!! Ignorance!!!

As far as the pictures that are posted, sometimes people tag their mixed breed as a pit bull, even though I explicitly ask not to tag mixes.. So when a lab mix pops up tagged pit bull, it’s not good. But, I do not always catch the tags to delete them.

Not that there’s anything wrong with being a pit bull 😉 Pit bulls are wonderful, but they’re just one breed.

These two lovable bonded dogs are Raymond (rottie mix) and Sadie (basset hound). They love to do just about anything together and cannot be adopted out separately! They would need a large fenced-in yard to play around in as they love to run and play tag with one another! They’re very big, lovable dogs that need another chance for a loving family.

They were found abandoned at a house with barbed wire wrapped around their mouths so they couldn’t bark, leaving them with permanent scars. We believe it may have been a large, muscular man as they can be very nervous around larger men.

They’ve been at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter for nearly a year now. I believe if anyone is willing to make the drive to the shelter they can adopt, as we don’t ship dogs out.

This may be a weird question but have you ever seen or heard of a Chow Chow x Rough Collie dog? All I could find with Google were Chow Chow x Border Collie.

Not knowingly, I guess. A chow chow/rough collie isn’t a breed, so I cannot say whether I’ve encountered one or not. It doesn’t appear to be a ~designer breed~ either, so your best place to get on is an animal shelter!
