Introducing Arran

Post by blackgiant » 03 Sep 2013, 18:07

After much thought I've decided to buy the male Bearded Collie puppy that my friend has bred (he also has 6 sisters)

This litter is carefully planned and health tested and I would be silly to pass up on such a good puppy that's so close to me.
I know all of her dogs very well and better-socialised and trained dogs you'd be hard to find.

He's 4 weeks old so I have to wait until the beginning of October for him.

As he's got strong Scottish heritage on his mother's side I looked for a suitable name - Arran

Love the name Cath and he looks a cutie :x

Is this instead of the P&S Giant you were looking for?

I though long and hard and decided that I really want another female Giant but now is not the right time.

Hopefully Arran will fit nicely into my group as the slightly smaller boys seem to suit my bigger girls

Thank you for all your comments

He'll hopefully be shown by my friend's daughters as they are really good at the YKC handling.They are keeping one of his sisters and his mother is also shown so that will keep the family busy. Show handling is not a skill that I have learnt so I intend to let others who are good at it have a go! Primarily he's a pet so if showing isn't for him it really doesn't matter.

Awww! I'm sure he'll fit right in. Bit of a change from Giants though :)

He's a bridge until I can have another girl - to be realistic I need to wait as 2 Giants is really enough

As my friend's bred him and I've known her dogs for years I have a pretty good idea what to expect. I've also fostered a couple of male Beardies to help rehabilitate them for new homes so I know I have to work hard for him to be a well-socialised, good mannered boy - they can be a bit of a handful.
It's an exciting new challenge

Didn't read your first post properly! I was thinking unusual markings for a Border Collie - looks more like a Beardy! :ymblushing:

Well Arran's been home just over 2 weeks and he's fabulous - so laid-back. He makes no fuss about the crate and really gets on well with the other dogs so I thought I'd post some new pictures

Just had his sister Olive staying overnight
I knew that having siblings was not a good idea but even a few hours has confirmed that this would be a nightmare. They totally ignore anything but each other and play constantly - unable to settle without being separated in crates.
I know this would settle out in the long run but the effort required to socialise and train 2 puppies of the same age would be immense.
A very interesting experience.
