What idiot would debark a dog!!! URGH! Poor Pecas.So I was home in maternity leave and wanted to get my Gypsy a friend. I found this great breeder whO had this chocolate Merle. Well when I found out how much she wanted for her I quickly gave up on buying her because the rate was outrageous.
Well a YEAR went by and I was in a better place financially so I decided to check with the breeder again. Turns out the lady who'd originally bought Pecas sold her back to the breeder because she took a better job and was never home. She also had her de-barked during that year well when I saw Pecas again I knew I had to get her and take her home. The breeder let me have her less than half the original price. I went to get her and she jumped right into my lap as if she knew I was taking her home. A year later here we are! . It's pitiful to heat her bark but she's so sweet and lovable and BFFs with Gypsy now
(Knocking on wood) So far she's been perfectly healthy. No problems at all for her. I hope it stays that way! She really is a sweet little thing, very smart and activePecas is adorable!
I actually have been looking for a merle, and wanted a choc merle, however I was discouraged by breeder forums. They listed several health concerns and concerns with breeding merles to begin with.
Have you had any health issues with Pecas that were related to being a merle ?
