Duszah Snowy Mountains Mack
What a special boy we are. We were planned for years, chosen from a litter of many boys, not the perfect colours to some, but the best pup to be chosen. Mack is a result of both our Copper and Chippy coming together in a pup and an example of what we are looking to produce in our future.
Mack has a story of his young life which I won't comment here. I will simply say that I am a huge advocate for my babies, no matter their age and Mack will live a long and happy life, with constant attention, love, rules and grooming. His old family said for us to keep Mack, and do as we pleased with him due to circumstances with their lives I wont mention here.
Mack has a great coat, he required an attack with brushes and clippers on arriving, so there's a few missing hair spots in these pics.
I am super sweet, loving and very cheeky.
I stayed with my family at Duszah for 8mths, around my first birthday and had to start with basics, but soon I enjoyed learning rules, simple things like when to not cock my leg, how to socialise in a group of people or dogs, not to jump on people, to listen to my name when it's called, to simply live in a normal family environment, normal things for a puppy. I even went camping for weeks and my nanna said I will never live on a chain again.
I believe in love at first sight... As I now have the most amazing family - Audrey and Adam and my older doggie brother Ollie, who I love sooooo much. I have only been with them for a short time but I show them every chance I can how grateful I am they opened their lives to me. :) I will have a wonderful life of LOVE and fun and even get to go visit nanna for a girlfriend now and then. How lucky am I? You can see how content I am below. Thank you family.
I am about to start obedience with my mummy as she says I am super smart and very trying. I learn everything super fast. After obedience she is going to teach me Rally O and Agility. My Duszah family are ready with pom poms to cheer me on.
Thanks so much to Audrey, Adam and Ollie for welcoming this lovely man into your lives as a mature boy and for allowing him to stay part of our lives and future breeding program.
