@dieselthebeauceron is growing, swipe left and see how heavy he is at 1 year old. Beauceron, Berger de Beauce or however you might want to call them are big Shepherd type dogs of France.

.

Many mistake them for a cross between a Rottweiler and German Shepherd but obviously they’re not and is considered an old breed by today’s standards. Hey Diesel, I know you want me to come down ASAP, I’m calling your Hoomen tomorrow to nail down a date this month! I will repost a write up on the breed on my next posting for those that want to learn more about the breed.

This breed is considered the last Coursing Mastiff of recent times. Although an old breed in its native country, it has become popular rather quickly around the world, especially the States.

For bonus points, in the picture this dog exhibits a key physical feature that is telling of the time the dog comes from and it’s purpose on the field. Can anyone guess?

This #mastiff popularity in England came to an abrupt end when the Kennel Club put in place their anti-cropping rule. The breed suffered greatly with the onset of World War I and II, to the point of almost being extinct. Historians tell us that Adolf Hitler ordered that the breed be killed on sight because of their guarding devotion to their families. At that time in Europe, only three breeding pairs were left after World War II.

Name the breed….

In my next posts, I will be doing a more thorough write up about this breed and it’s interesting history.

Today’s #mastiff of the day hasn’t physically changed much in the last 100 years, if not more. (Hint) it shares a name with a popular shoe (sneakers) line.

For bonus points, their temperament is what characterizes the breed. Give the name of what enthusiast calls their “temperaments”

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies brea…

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies breath smells the way it does? It begins with a healthy puppy and a hearty dose of its mother’s milk. The lactose in her milk smells sweet and digest easily. The digestive enzymes in your puppy’s stomach breaks down the proteins in her milk which adds to the sweet aroma. Some VETERINARIANS believe that puppy breath may be the result of its esophagus developing.
.
.

If a puppy has bad breath, then it could indicate a serious health problem. The first thing a veterinarian would look at is their teeth. In adult dogs, a problem like gum disease and impacted teeth could lead to bad breath but since a puppy’s teeth are still developing, it’s highly unlikely a foul odor is the result of a dental problem. Checking and cleaning your puppy’s mouth is a good habit to begin while young as they usually don’t like being bothered with when they’re older.
.
.

Intestinal Parasites is another common cause of bad breath. Worms can be passed from the mother to their young through pregnancy and through their milk. Indications of parasites are vomiting, diarrhea, lack of weight gain, brittle hair and coughing. Puppies should be treated and dewormed as early as 5 weeks. A severe worm infestation can cause death.
.
.

Coprophagia is the term, its when dogs eat their own stool. A stage in a pups development is using their mouths much like a person use their hands to touch, feel and learn everything about the world around them. This can possibly lead to why some dogs continue to eat their stool as they get older. This habit will usually go away as the pup matures but some pups can continue the same way a child would suck on a thumb if not stopped by a parent.
