hehe staffies are awesome but dumb as shit.
Couldn't be as dumb as the Shih Tzu we had growing up that decided it would be a great idea to bark it's head off right in front of a giant kangaroo we labelled Arnie(yeah doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out why) and in turn cut it's stomach open with a kick, thankfully it survived.

I've never actually owned one but had a few mates that did. They were constantly worried they would get stolen because staffies don't even care who their owner is. They will just run and jump in a car if someone calls them over to it and just go along with the new "owner".

Staffies are stocky idiots. Their owner is food but they are super placid.

Pugs are their own bosses, they go wherever they want, such self-entitled dogs. Haha

Haha, this reminds me of a story when I was early teens. Had a staffy for about 8 years, one day there was a huge thunderstorm and I went outside to grab the dog. Couldn't find him, so me and mum jump in the car to see if we can find him, about 100metres down a staffy on the side of the road looks exactly the same. I call him "get over here boy", he jumps straight in the car, I head home, run to grab a towel to dry him and what do you know. My staffy was in my brother's room the whole fucking time haha.

The other staffy could pass as a twin but deadset, I called and the dumb **** ran straight over to me and jumped in the car no hesitation so naturally I had no doubt it was my dog. We found the original owner and got him delivered back.

So the dog we've been looking after, we've been thinking about taking him to a shelter but I was wondering if that could potentially backfire on us in a legal way?

We were only meant to be looking after the dog for a month or two while he found another place, but it's just been one big **** around and it got to a point where shit almost hit the fan and it almost got physical after he came around demanding money etc. There was a whole bunch of shit before that but that was sort of the breaking point for us.

At one point there, he was jumping the fence at 1 in the morning and knocking on my window to wake me up just to try and see if I had a smoke.

After that we told him we had enough, we don't want him around here anymore so we gave him a few weeks to sort out his shit or we're taking the dog to a shelter. He actually had someone that was willing to go out of their way to help him, give him a place to stay, food, clothes and help him find a place of his own but he got kicked out because he didn't like being told what to do.

So enough is enough. We're taking the dog to a shelter because he is living on the streets again and we just can't have a dog here anymore. We can't give the dog the care he needs full time.

No idea from a legal point, but it's worth posting up on one of those lost pet groups for advice, and you'd likely find someone on there who would take the dog if legal too.

To surrender a dog they would probably need records of all it's shots and any other veterinary issues. Not sure.
 
Pulled 4 tics off my (Bravecto flee & tic treated) cattle dog yesty.
2 tics were already dead, 1 was dying. The last tinny little fkr was just getting started.

My dogs fine😌

My neighbour..... Old Mate (87ish yrs) says (& I quote) this will be the worst year for tics since I pulled 1 out of my CockEnd when I was 21yrs old!😂

This old fella knows what he's talking about.

Tics kill dogs & spread Lime disease to humans.

Just sayin
✌

Last year was bullshit for ticks. We were pulling 10-15 a day off our border collie. Thankfully just bush ticks but we do have paralysis ticks too. Lost our Labrador to one about 5-6 years ago on this property.

10-15 a day? What treatment are you giving them? Holy Water?
Yeah, for about a 4-6 week period we were pulling off that many a day. Giving them both Bravecto. He had long hair though, we shaved him last week. Most of the ticks were dead but still a freak out how riddled he was. Perfect conditions for ticks where we are.

They mostly get ticks on their face, front paws, head and chest area. From running into grass / bush etc chasing shit...

My little guy does a few trips with me to Stanthorpe every year and a couple of trips to Sunshine Coast hinterland, both of which are riddled.

Nexgard Spectra is the bomb... Found a few ticks on him over the years, all dead... One chewy meaty bite type tablet a month is all they need and works a charm.
