Talking Hi from Italy

Hi everybody!

My name's Federica, and I'm Italian (so forgive me for my awful English )

I've loved dogs since I was born...I've always lived with beautiful mixed-breed dogs I saved from the street (unfortunately, abandon and stray dogs are very common where I live...)...

In the past, I've had an Irish Wolfhound mix (my sweet Dux) and a part Flat Coated Retriever (Hurricane Phil) , both found wandering on the seaside near my house, both much loved, much missed friends I will never forget...

Now my canine companions are Apocalypse Now Zeus (a German Shepherd-Borzoi mix), who is now 12, but still very lively and playful , and my new little rascal, Aries the Crimson King, a 5 months old puppy, that seems to be a Rough Collie…but there’s no way to surely tell until he grows up

I also have a female Siberian Cat, her name is Rhaja My Beautiful Dream, she’s very sweet, and because of her always living with dogs, she believes to be a dog herself ... but I can say she demands respect in very effective ways…She also weights 8 kilos, she’s practically as big as a cocker, so that’s not too difficult to picture

I’ve never had a pure breed dog, but my favourite breeds are the White Swiss Shepherd and the Czechoslovakian Wolf Dog.

Aside from that, I’m quite experienced in training dogs, and I’m very interested in Obedience and Clicker Training. This summer, I’ll start working with Aries, he’s the first dog I'll train for obedience, and I hope to do well, so I guess I’ll need a lot of advice…

Anyway, next March, I’ll go to France to get my White Shepherd puppy from a local breeder, and I’m really looking forward to it!

And I think that’s all…

I think this will be a very interesting forum!

And please, forgive me again for my poor knowledge of you language (feel free to correct my mistakes, if you want...that could be a good chance for me to learn something too, )…


So hello everbody again, and many kisses from Italy!!!

Hello Federica and

Great to have you! And there is NOTHING wrong with your English!
We are looking forward to pictures. Some of the dogs you describe are very exotic for members in the USA.

Thanks everybody!

I've attached some pictures of my friends Zeus and Rhaja
I'm afraid I have just one picture of Zeus on my PC at the moment...I'll take some more

I'll attach pictures of Aries in a second post, just give me a minute, 'cause the files are too heavy to be posted all at once

Hope you like them!

And here he is, my little "Sballarancio", as we call him
Do you think he's a Rough Collie? He seems a little too thin to be one pure breed, but the height is there, even if he's just a puppy
