Hello from the Yorkshire Dales, England

Post by LizBrown » Sun Oct 02, 2011 7:20 pm

Hi
I am Liz from a small Yorkshire Dales village. I am married with three adult children, the middle one back home after uni, now doing a masters degree, whilst the youngest has just left starting her uni course. We have owned German Shepherds, but currently are down to one GSD, a beagle and get my eldest daughters terrier for most of the summer.
We are a very active family and I am very interested in finding out about the Tamaskan as I think it would be a breed of dog which would suit our active life style of fell walking, running, etc.
Everything I have read so far suggests that this dog would fit in well however prior to us buying into the GSD breed we spent a long time researching and visiting numerous breeders to find what we wanted and was not disappointed: however, our current GSD has come to us through rescue. As our GSD is beginning to enter her twilight years I feel it is time to consider a new dog as I know it will take some time to find.
I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has a Tamaskan that would be willing to discuss the nature of the breed and possibly allow me to visit and see if they would suit us.

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

Hi Welcome, I live in Manchester so if you are ever over this way you are welcome to meet our Tamaskan (Saga). I think it is a great breed, lovely nature, very calm (well Saga is :D ), trainable and great looking. I have never had a GSD, so can not compare the two very well, but from what people have said Saga is calmer than a GSD, not so nervous and does not have the same guarding instincts (no guarding instincts, but she is only 9 months old). Have fun reading everything on this forum.
