My first beagle was outside 365 days a year. However, he came from a log house next to a river in rural Illinois. He preferred being outside to being inside and enjoyed swimming and being a pack animal.

My current beagle is a fully domesticated house dog. He's a fat wuss and a whiner, but he means well I guess.

And other than his copious shedding, Hoover is very low maintenance. I have leather furniture, so it's easy to remove dog hair. I wouldn't trade my dog or cat for anything.

I may have posted it before, but we used Hoover for an ad campaign for OSU's online degree programs:

He was much more cooperative and easy to work with during the photo shoot than the kids we used for other spots. Not that they were bad, but he was that good.

Eastern Rat Snake - we have bunches of them - non poisonous constrictor. They range in size from just under 10 inches to over 8 feet. Good critters, they keep the bug and rodent populations down. Right now - April - they're coming out of hibernation and you'll find them sprawled out on holly tree branches about 8 - 10 feet up, soaking up the sun. Had a 6-footer in the garage last fall. One lives near Karen's compost piles - she calls it "Ralph".

snakes aren't GREAT pets.. They have no emotion. How can you trust a snake, when they show no signs of aggressiveness unless it's a coil up before they strike. They can be very dangerous if you don't know how to handle them. It's not like you can train them or anything.. They are fascinating however

My Friend down in Austin has a Boa and well if you can't train a snake then i don't know what they did to it but
the Child who is 2 plays with him has him out every day just chilling they lay in the sun and just hang out by the pool they trust the snake more then a baby sitter with that kid now no that does not mean they substitue the snake for a baby sitter they are not dumb lol

I think our bull mastiff ended up being the runt.. She's a year and about 3 months, and she's smaller than our Rott. What age will she stop growing? These pictures are recent.. You can see how big she isn't. You have great looking dogs.

Unfortunately, he was struck by a car. I give the driver credit though, he at least picked him up and took him to the vet. They tried to save him but there was nothing that could be done. :( He was almost 9.

I've always had cats. Pepper is nearly 16 and still quite feisty. This is my favorite picture of her; she has what I call catitude. It's like she's saying, "I am a cat, and you're not, you poor schmuck."

Not all bullmastiffs break the 100 pound mark. You may indeed have a runt. Typically they achieve the majority of their size in the first year of life, but will continue to fill out their frame and musculature out to 2 years. If you want a big bullmastiff, start with a big sire and dam, look at all the puppies in the litter, and pick out the biggest male in the bunch. You'll pay for that premium choice but you'll get a big dog. I think it's better to choose a BM based on temperament and how it interacts with people at 6-8 weeks of age.

Thing is we paid $1,300.00 (Nala) and she was shipped from Dallas.. Gregory Shores was the breeders. We complained to them, but they didn't want to hear us. They told us if we ever emailed them again they would delete our emails without reading. What kind of breeder does that? Titans breeders still are in touch with us to this very day. They even offered us one of Titans brothers, because someone sent him back (he's even bigger than Titan). Werner Hafen those are the breeders we got Titan from. They are great people.

For the record: bullmastiff/chow chow is a terrible combination for a dog. Big, strong, bull neck, with a bad temper can make for a great guard dog that's challenging to maintain control over.

By the way Rolex, what are the main reasons and advantages that you buy a dog from a breeder instead of adopting an unknown puppy from shelter?

Zeus (the BM/Chow mix) was 8-9 years old in that photo. I adopted him, his mother (my first bullmastiff), and all 13 of his siblings when they were only 6 weeks old. The mama dog was dehydrated, starving to death @ about 75#, and covered in swollen ticks. All the pups were very sick and I eventually lost a couple that were too far gone. Zeus was the largest and sturdiest of the litter. In his unkempt, dehydrated, starving, and tick covered state @ 6 weeks he walked right up to me and gave me the biggest GTFO of my territory bark he could make. He was a born guard dog. I found suitable homes for the pups and kept the mama dog and zeus. Mama lived to be 13 years old by my guess-timation and Zeus lived to 9. He was MUCH larger than his mom.

Dogs have always been my favorite companion animal, and prior to adopting a bullmastiff every dog I have ever owned was an adopted shelter mutt. I believe the mutts are sometimes the best dogs and for the $25 donation the shelters ask you couldn't want for a better opportunity if you're looking for a canine buddy. In particular I have been bitten by the bullmastiff "bug." I really like the breed, and now that I make a good living and can afford the high cost of buying a papered dog I do so from a reputable breeder. The pure breed should be more predictable in terms of it's build, size, temperament, and overall characteristics. Unlike buying a mutt from a shelter where you're not always sure how big it will get, how hyperactive it will be, what kind of temperament it may have, etc. Typically people buying from breeders will take those dogs and breed them or show them. I don't do either. My BM is just a family pet, so buying from a breeder is overkill/unnecessary expense (which I'm guilty of on many fronts).

I have been a dog lover my whole life and have been fortunate to have had over twelve dogs (we usually had two or more at a time so they would have company during the day when we were away). Most of our dogs have been gotten from dog rescue organizations. There are many breed specific rescue organizations around the country. While I agree that mixed breeds make great pets (probably the healthiest) I have been attracted to pure breeds whether from a breeder of a rescue because their size and temperament (particularly size) are more predictable than is the case of a mixed breed dog, this is particularly the case when getting a puppy as opposed to an adolescent or mature dog. Given a choice I would select a six to eight month old dog from a breed rescue. However, both ""pound" dogs and breed rescue dogs are screened for temperament and every effort is made to find suitable homes for those that pass the health and temperament test. Under no circumstances would I buy from a pet shop, dogs found in pet shops usually come from "puppy mills" and are of dubious quality, not to mention outrageously over priced!

If wanting a puppy a reputable breeder is probably the best bet for getting a sound pup representing the best characteristics of the breed. If you are looking for a dog out of the puppy stage, talking with reputable breeders in your are can be very useful as they may have know of a dog needing a new home.

Whether from a rescue organization or a reputable breeder our dogs have all prove wonderful pets and have provided great companionship and unconditional love throughout their all to short lives!

My mom's oldest sister has owned a kennel for as long as I can remember. In 1992, she took in a beagle that had come from a troubled home, and we got it for free, had it for about two weeks until one day my dad accidentally left the gate in our chain link fence open and he ran away, never to be seen again. Ever since then we've stuck to cats.
