Which will be today by the time you guys read this!! We're driving down to Sydney tomorrow to have a look at a pure bred brindle Staffy that is in a foster home/shelter (the woman does it all from her house but rescues many dogs and is more like a shelter but it is run from her home) and apparently she is very social with people and other dogs (they put her in a cage with a really jumpy dog and she just let it be...excellent considering my mum's dog is old old old and they will be spending time together!!) and the woman also said that she is fairly obedient. Granted she hasn't had much time with her but she drove her an hour and a half back to their place without a harness on her for the car and she sat in the front seat and din't move the whole time!! She seems to be quite placid!! Anyway I'm going down tomorrow to look at her and watch her interact with the other dogs and me of course and assess her obedience levels and if she fits then she is coming home with me!!!! she is between two and three (so I'm going to say 2.5 so I can give her a birthday!) and they don't know what her name is which could be interesting but I'm going to call her Biscuit! I really really really hope that she is the one cause I know I'm going to be disappointed if she isn't right but the woman definently thinks she is worth the three hour drive (she lives right at the other end of Sydney) and even though I don't know this woman very well I know that she cares enough about her Staffy's to make sure they are homed properly and I don't think she'd waste her time with me. she said she has lots of Staffy's there right now but believes that this brindle is the one for me!!! wish me luck you guys and if she comes home with me then of course there'll be pictures!!!
