    If you could cope with slobber, I am sure you could easily get over a beard and moustache! :043:

    No we trend to get Labadors, Huskies, Springers, Cockers' Boader Terriers JRT's, Collies, Yorkies, Westies, Staffies, Boxers, all toy breeds, Pugs, GSD's, Poodles, Mastiffs & "Designer breeds" (who become crossbreeds once up for adoption) we have had couple Dalmatian, Beagles & Bloodhounds, these came in when films were at cinemas featuring these breeds.

    @Azz It is at least a clean type of beard and moustache - not like the OES type (which is like a mop cloth). Tweed's wiry face has never been smelly, and combs easily.
    If you fancied a rehomed dog, you could always try GWP breed club rescue.

    Here's the stunner from Crufts :049: the one I saw looked just like him!

    At 11mins 40seconds



    Good point! :)

    Haha don't tell Meg :101:

    I suppose that's a good thing really - there aren't many in rescue. :)

    That's true. I will keep a look out, but I've got no idea when we'll be out of this house now tbh (we sacked the builders :roll:). I guess I can dream...

    Gorgeous :049: although tbh I prefer the GSP

    In any case that is not much of a beard and moustache - sez she who used to breed Griffons! :081:

    [and who used to prefer the smooths to the roughs :oops:]

    Beware of yoghurt eating dogs with beards and moustaches! :018: I seem to spend most of my time cleaning up Gwylim's tacky beard and unruly fringe. It's bad enough drying Georgina's drippy chops every time she has a drink of water but twice as bad wiping yoghurt off a Schnauzer's sticky snout. :103:

    What you have to remember Azz is the one in the video will have been stripped (coat) for the show ring, they will come in a variety of coats , from not much wire to a lot, are you prepared for the coat care.

    There is one that plays in the park with Figo every morning shes adorable, but looks nothing like the one in the video, as her owners don`t do much with her coat.

    You also need to be careful where you get one from, I know some lines had temperament issues, but that was a while a go, a lovely breed to own. remember also they are HPR so they have a mind of their own, they range (part of the character, ) so good training is in order,

    About time you got yourself a new canine............

    Yep there is definitely a lot to think about - thanks everyone. I'd have to go visit a few breeders first I think. Ideally I'd prefer a dog that doesn't require much grooming/maintenance :lol:

    ]

    Then a coated breed isn't for you, maybe look at the short haired type.
