Ah guys I’m so excited to introduce another new pup to you! So we decided ages ago that we were going to get two dogs, a breed that Josh wanted and a breed that I wanted. In March we brought home Missy, our Staffy (the breed that Josh wanted), you can read a bit about her here!
I had been looking on Dogzonline for ages, looking for Japanese Spitz puppies. It’s a breed I’ve wanted for quite some time. They are basically like mini Samoyed’s, another one of my favourites. One time my neighbour back at home got a Japanese Spitz one day, and I was instantly in love, and knew what I wanted in the future. Dogzonline is a great site to get healthy, looked after pups from.
I was having absolutely no luck finding a pup I wanted that was located in our state. So one Friday morning in June, I decided to look elsewhere. I looked on Trading Post and a few promising ones popped up! I had a quick discussion with Josh, and I made an enquiry.
I sent the owner/breeder a message and gave a brief description about us…
Hi there, my name is Chelsea and I am just enquiring about your ad on Trading Post for Japanese Spitz pups! My partner and I are after a female Spitz to join our little family. We have a 7 month old Staffy who would absolutely adore having another dog to play with! We also have a tame cockatiel. Do you still have the female available? And when would she be available for viewing and pick up?
To my excitement, they responded back fairy quickly and said she would be available for viewing and pick up the next day! He said if we like her, we can take her! I was definitely going to like her, there was no doubt about that….
So our quiet weekend suddenly became busy. We were up early on the Saturday morning (I didn’t sleep the night before at all due to excitement and anxiety) as it was a bit of a drive to the other side of Melbourne, 1hr 10mins. Unfortunately my anxiety was really bad that day so I struggled a lot with travel. But in the end it was all worth it to bring home little…
We brought her home at 8 weeks old. It was a dull, cold and rainy day but it didn’t really matter. She is the cutest thing I have ever seen in my entire life, and she is mine.
We are looking forward to her personality unfold. Her and Missy get along so well, they are constantly playing, it is so cute. She also loves biting my socks, and running around like crazy when she’s out of her pen. She’s going to be a lot of work for a while, while she grows and learns, but we need to savour this time as she will only be little for a short time.
As for her name, how did we come up with it and decide on it? One day, ages ago, I just came across it and thought it was a cool name. We were almost going to name Missy, Kora, but it didn’t suit her. But I think it suits this one perfectly. She’s going to grow up cheeky as well, I can tell. She is definitely a big dog in a little dogs body.
Now here’s some Kora spam:
