Nice. Like to see their website.

 

Been rat hunting a number of times now. They are fast little bastards and get away more often that not. I'm sure you know this but don't tell anyone outside the club that you're doing a barn hunt. Only a matter of time before the Sabs hit SF.

I was actually thinking of Norbert the Narc, the FFFB's arch nemesis.
Back in the 90's I allegedly used to provide one of the rip-off Press guys with his California Herbal Refreshment and he invited me to their annual hoe-down. I was too cool for school at the time and begged out but in hindsight it probably would have been fun to meet some of those guys.

Neo-Presa Cross?

A fellow I have been casually acquainted with over the years was so impressed by my Tosas that bought a pup a little over year ago. He was extremely devoted to the dog, which pretty much accompanied him everywhere, including his office at the university where he works.

I encountered him Friday sans dog. I inquired about the dog, and he told me the youngster (age 15 months) had died suddenly on the preceding Monday. He believed that it was possibly an adverse reaction to a combination of routine medications.

Anyway, I got an e-mail from him today saying he had just got an eight-week-old Neo-Presa cross. That sounds like a pretty formidable combo to me, and I cautioned him that his new pup might not be as innately people-friendly as his Tosa, but I hoped he could overcome any anti-social tendencies with good socialization.

Lefty (or anybody else knowledgeable), do you have any thoughts on such a cross?

I'm sure someone has done it, but I'm not sure why. Presas are mostly shit. Neos more so. The idea that someone had access to two dogs from those breeds worth putting together is highly unlikely. Besides, if you had a great Neo you'd be better off making better little Neos.

 

Certain breeds don't mix well - Rotts for example - and the Presa may be in that category.

A friend of mine did a Pit X Rott cross. The pups from that litter were so dangerously dominant aggressive to humans that they all had to be put down between the ages of two and three. I have heard Presa X Pit crosses described as "Hell waiting to happen."

They guy who got the puppy is a real nice guy, and so I hope the pup works out for him. Had he contacted me prior to getting it, I would have counseled against it.

I tend to think of Presas as just another Bandog variant.

We had three foxes in the front yard the other day and saw another in a neighbor's driveway today. Still waiting on that border terrier!

Were they red or gray foxes? Red foxes were quite common in my neighborhood in East Long Beach about 13 years ago but rather quickly vanished. My first thought was that the city surreptitiously exterminated them because they were exotics (descended from escaped or released pets) and are a terrible threat to the abundant bird life of the area. I now more inclined to believe they were wiped out by the coyotes.

I have had a family of foxes living behind my house all spring and summer. Male/Female and at least three kits. Surprisingly they have actually taken to coming very close (under 5-8 feet) to the house (can tell from the scat). There is something great about sitting in my office at the house on Saturday morning and having a bucks in velvet meander by, a doe with her fawns, a fox or two and then a big tom come strutting through. Swear at one point, I saw a bobcat in the woods.

The second I see a coyote... not going to be too happy.

The neighbors who are somewhat taken back by it all, say that it is the most diverse that it has been in many years.
