Default Greetings from Tenerife

Hello everyone on this Forum. I'm Dave and I'm a British ex-pat who now lives in Tenerife.

In the UK I had a Scottie and a Westie. The Westie Lucy died about 6 years ago aged 15 and Angus our Scottie died about 4 years ago aged 18. I love Scotties in particular.

We started thinking about getting a dog last year after we had got settled in Tenerife. A guy in our village asked us if we would be interested in having his dog as he no longer had time to look after her due to a change in circumstances. We discussed it at length and decided to see her. She turned out to be a fabulous Scottie named Sasha. She is so settled with us now and so well behaved. All our firnds and neighbours just love her.

We don't know her exact background as she was found as a stray about 18 months ago. She is tattooed but was not chipped. We had no papers for her and no medical history. She is now chipped and totally up to date on her injections and parasite treatments. The vet thinks she is around 3 years old which was my own estimate.

We talked about having her speyed and have decided to let her have one litter first. So many people we know would like one of her pups and would provide great homes for them. I've found a 6 year old male via a local forum. Again he is tattooed but has no papers as he is only a pet. We are not worried about this as I'm not planning on selling the pups for huge amounts. I just want to cover the costs.

I have no experience of breeding dogs and neither has the male's owner so I searched for a forum to get advice and here I am. I'll take a good read around the forum and look forward to taking part.

I'll attach a link to a pic of Sasha too.

Thanks for reading this first post of mine.

Hello Sashasdad and

Glad you found us! I think of Tenerife as a vacation spot for Germans, I can't imagine what it would be like to live there.

As far as breeding her goes, you may want to take a look at this thread. I also recall that there are a large number of dogs living on the streets in Tenerife.

Welcome!

Sasha is beautiful! I'm sure you'll get some good advice from breeders around here soon. You may want to post your question in another section also as not everyone checks the New Members section.

Thanks for that Skunkstripe. I will look at the link. There are a couple of good Dog charities here and one of the local Forums ( where I'm a moderator ) does a lot of fund raising for them both.

There are a few strays in Tenerife but not that many really. As for tourism the British account for the biggest numbers of tourists and for ex-pats.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll search and have a good read before I start asking questions so I don't annoy people by duplicating threads.

I spent a vacation in Maspalomas once-seemed like there were a huge number of drunken Germans everywhere wanting to party and drink even more!
Then again Gran Canaria is not Tenerife.

True. All seven Island are very different to each other.
