    Yes but if they're guessing ambull/mastiff cross he's going to be a big dog.

    Well I'll be getting the giant schnauzer puppy in a year-18 months anyway to maybe do agility and working trials with and I'm pretty sure this type of dog could do working trials or at least something.

    I am trying to convince myself that such a large powerful dog isn't a good idea right now no matter how great a temperment he has. Not sure it's working though

    And thanks hopefully the giant schnauzer hunt will go well. I'm going to contact a few kennels see if I can go over and meet the dogs etc. The primavista ones look really good.

    There are two irish red and White Setters in rescue at the moment which is very sad. One is a 'failed' gundog. Both look lovely boys - wish I had the room to help. :(

    It is so tempting when there's a breed you really like. I'm guessing Irish Red and Whites don't come up in rescue very often.

    He sounds like he would doesn't he.

    He's 2 apparently. If they're guessing ambull/mastiff I think the picture makes him look smaller than he is. I want to but I'll see later on when I'm not waiting for the removal van to come
