Chook, Rotherham is in South Yorkshire and a long way from York. BTW, just curious but how come so many re-homings from that litter? :)

Yep i know were york is, have been there, its only an hour away from rotherham - i dont just go up to rotherham, ive been all over yorkshire, noth and south,
most of the time i do go up to halifax, but when we have done the transport runs,
furthest we have been so far is newcastle.

As far as i know theres only been 2 rehomings from this litter,
mine and Bohoflo, i dont know the resion why the other was rehomed,
but Layla was rehomed because the woman who had her, didnt have a clue about the breed,
there is already a thread on laylas rehoming to me, so dont want to write it all out again.

York is 55miles from Rotherham Chook. If you can do that in an hour, I am stunned. However, re. the re-homings: surely the breeder should have ensured the new owners of the puppies knew what they were taking on.

I think perhaps too many people are breeding litters without thought as to the future welfare of the hounds - don't you?

I am quite sure the breeder took every care regarding homing the puppies,but sometimes people find themselves unable to cope,and this is not always going to be apparent to the breeder.On your second point,there may be breeders in all breeds breeding litters without thought of the dogs welfare but not in this case.Re-homings happen-for a variety of reasons-and are not always someones fault.In an ideal world perhaps re-homings wouldn't happen,but we don't live in an ideal world.That's why there are re-homing sections for every breed club.

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17759

Actualy you will find its not 55 miles away, down the A1 its 43.0,
59 mins away, thats from york centre to the track at rotherham.

Map


Now from what i know of the person who had Layla was checked out,
but as with everything you can NOT garentee what will happen with the future of any pup,
that go's for every breeder,luckaly for Layla she did come to me, and i did get all the paperwork and the breeders number, i did speak to her breeder and met up with the owner of the sire.
Tbh the only way you could ever garantee the future of any pup, is either not to breed full stop, ( in the case of that the breed would die out) or to make sure they only go to experanced homes, if that happened how would you get new people in to the breed,
re-homes happen for lots of resions, in every breed going, yes sometimes people take on to much, it happens everywere with everytype of animal.

I don't know about the dstance from York to Rotherham, it's a long time since I was in the UK, but I did wonder about 2 rehomings from the one litter too. I know when you breed this will happen occasionally, but twice in one litter would worry me. Thankfully both these Deerhounds seem to have landed on their paws in loving homes.

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17764

I was thinking about this and I suppose you could have (depending on the nature of the Dam and Sire) a litter full of very boisterous and playful puppies. My idea of heaven - but that could be someones idea of hell and if you don't know the breed and you end up with a very large and playful dog some people may struggle. It would make sense that you could get a litter of playful dogs and on the other hand you could get a litter of fairly calm hounds if that is the Dam and Sires nature. So what I am saying is maybe this is a litter (or some of the puppies) of very active and playful hounds which is why two of them have been moved on through no fault of there own. ALthough it is probably unusual to have a litter with all puppies with the same nature.

Maybe if these people has got a dog that suited them better they would have kept them. Layla is gorgeous and is very playful and strong from what I saw. Chook is always exercising her and keeps her mentally entertained with training etc. I was seriously impressed with her recall at Highgate but I can see that she could be a handful to someone inexperienced. Hope you don't mind me saying that Chook. :)

I would be interested in hearing of the nature of the litter from the people on here who have pups from the litter as I maybe completely wrong!! :laugh: :laugh: I personally love the fact that my two never stop playing and messing about. I have to say though Daisy is calmer than Mack the the two of them together have a blast!!

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17769

Let's just start by remembering that this litter is only now 15 months old,and therefore are very much still puppies.I can obviously only comment on one puppy(my Rainich)and she is like any 15 month old.She has her mad moments,but is generally a very calm girl with a fabulous temprement,as many who have met her have commented on.It is a shame two of the litter have had to be re-homed,but is i believe,purely coincidence,and is certainly no reflection on the breeder or the sire and dam of the puppies.This litter was produced from a second mating of the sire and dam.Non from the first litter required re-homing,and that litter also produced a very successful show dog.It should also be noted that certainly three of the present litter heve all had success in showing in their first year,including Rainich who has qualified for Crufts

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17770

Yes my comment wasn't a critism of the litter just wondered if they were a especially lively bunch which could put unexperienced people off.

Layla has a wonderful temperament, she loves everyone and plays with all types of dogs so to my mind she would be the perfect bitch to own however her last owner couldn't cope with her and she is a lot more playful than Daisy at the same age so I was wondering if it was a factor to her being rehomed and therefore whether the other pup was similar - a playful pup with an inexperienced owner.

I think the emphasis must be placed on the "owners" in my comments rather than the pups themselves who to my mind are not only stunning to look at but I am sure have great temprements also.

As you say it is probably more a co-incidence than anything else. It was just an observation. I find it very interesting.

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17772

Of corse i dont mind :)

Yes Layla can be a handful, and in the wrong hands it could be a big problem,
when she gets excited she bounce's like a mad dog, and can be verry difficult to hold
due to her not having much training when she came to me, and being slightly withdrawn,
shes makeing up for lost time,to me shes still acts like a baby and is still learning about life, with other dogs - her comunication skills are fantastic and in the house shes calm
and just relax's, unless i start off with the play sessions and we act like mad loons :lol:
Layla just loves life and everything in it :) .

Some pictures of her day out yesterday.
btw the bottom lad is looking for a quiet retrement home, after his owner died

She is such a sweetie. It's great that she spends so much time with other dogs. She is so well socialised now you have her. It really is a case of the perfect owner making for a perfect hound. You have done wonders with her Jane. She is a delight. Can't wait to see her again soon.

Tag is a handsome old boy I hope he find someone soon.

You are quite right in what you say MrsMc.Sadly in ALL breeds people don't think long enough,or hard enough about what breed will suit them best,or even take the trouble to find out about the breed before purchasing.Rainich is our first Deerhound,although my wife and i have over twenty years experience of dog onwership with Hungarian Vizslas.We then got our current Italian Spinone and even before we brought her home we were thinking about what we would get as a companion for her.I had long admired Deerhounds,but as with the Vizslas and the Spinone,we then spent the next year talking to Deerhound owners,breeders,and visiting Shows just watching and talking to people before deciding whether a Deerhound was the right choice.It should always be about what is right for the dog not what we want.

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17780

Hi Guys - not been on line so wasn't aware this discussion was taking place. Millie (Millefleur) was not a rehoming as such - she came to me directly from the breeder! She is generally calm natured and kind - if a little unruly outside at the moment. But she is young and just needs some time spent training her. Her coming to live with me is certainly no reflection on the litter or the breeder. She has been with me for just over a week now and I am thrilled to bits with her. Pictures to follow!! P.S. Bro's and sista's of Millie - lovin looking at the pictures and vids x

Pleased you have been able to set the record straight regarding Millie.I may have got a little defensive regarding the litter and their breeder,but i felt there were one or two posts questioning both,which was unfair.I know the breeder cares a great deal about the hounds,and knowing she doesn't post on this forum,i felt i had to defend her.On the subject of photos I have to admit i am a total idiot when it comes to computers,and haven't yet worked out how to post them. :unsure:If anyone does want to see a photo of Rainich(and me :ohmy: )there is one on the Deerhound Club website.You can find it in the 2009 photo gallery,East of England Show,in Puppy Bitch.It's not the greatest photo(i'm in it for a start :ohmy: )and Rainich decided to move just as the picture was taken.......as she would.Happy New Year all,and here's hoping we can get the "Bradleyabbi" puppies together sometime in 2010.

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 3 weeks ago #17804

Hi Chon Dubh - Just had a look at your picture and Rainich is very much like Millie. I'm taking lots of pics of her but, like you, I am a little technologically challenged and it might be some time before you see them. Hoping to take lots of footage in Scotland of her with her new friends. At the moment, She is sprawled on the sofa which she has claimed as her own, doing one of the things she loves best .... Sleeping! I'm beginning to think she is narcoleptic!!

Re:Loki is looking for his brothers and sisters. 8 years 2 weeks ago #18144

So we have a fair few of the boys and girls here then and its been great looking at the pics and videos of them so whos going to the breed show in Cheltenham in April and what days?

I will be there with Loki and it sounds like some of his siblings are going to be there as well so if you have a Bradleyabbi puppy from this litter it would be good to say hello and maybe get a few family pictures.
