Welcome to Dutchess!!! Out newest family member, so we now have a Duke and Dutchess. We adopted her about 6 weeks ago from the Muskingum County Dog Pound, she was picked up as a stray and was a wee bit skinny but as you can see, she's gained some weight (about 60# now). They said she's a Rottweiler mix (I think more Rott than anything else). She is quite the hunter and we've had a few incidents with a couple of young deer that ventured too close to the house and also one that ended up in the barn. She is almost perfect, only one flaw really, but I have to admit it's been a challenge to deal with...she wants to hurt, maim, kill our barn cats. Kitties are all still flourishing though despite her best efforts, she is doing better since Larry has been teaching her the "leave it" command. Milo can now walk up to her and rub all over her, Daisy and Jewel aren't taking any chances and flee the moment she is spotted. I'll put up more pics later.
