Hoooo boy! There some judgement coming through that door! Someone needs to make with the plea bargain (snacks) already.

My dog will help unload the car for them. Might want to do it in a different state though.

She does look pretty grumpy doesn’t she? Not the case though, pretty sweet dog most of the time… until she’s not. Add that to the list of reasons I DON’T own a Springer.

It's all in the eyebrows:

I've been around several Springers & concur. Our neighbor's was a bee with an itch at times, just-for-because. Had kind of a cat like temperament. That one passed years ago & they got an AWS. A bit thick headed, but generally good natured & was easy to train.

The males they have had have been really great dogs without an ounce of unpredictability. This female is fine with adults, and fine with children she knows but kids as a species scare her and she is predictably unpredictable with dogs. 
my last lab got a trip to the vet because of her more than once for no apparent reason at all. 
the black one on the photo left is good natured but particularly dumb.

It takes a heck of a dog to unload a Badger.  I saw a Rottweiler who thought he could do it and he found out he was wrong.

Nothing a $1000 dollar vet bill didn't fix though.

If my dog wasn't soft around the edges & was still built like a porterhouse, I wouldn't be too concerned. The AmStaff has lineage back to the British Bull & Terrier which were bred as a dog that could easily dispatch a badger or wolverine. AmStaffs also have an incredibly high tolerance for pain & once they lock on to their target.... it's going to be all over for the unfortunate critter that gets chomped on.*

Several years ago my red heeler found out that particular line of blue heeler could scare the snot out of her. No blood shed but she found out they were not easy to crunch like an opossum or raccoon

We have our fair share of badgers here

The one critter I would not let my dogs loose on

Risk was too high and too easy to dispatch with the .22 pistol

After a bit of research.... yep, high velocity lead is the best way. Seems the breed does have the instinct, but needs to be trained & even then it is iffy.

Absolutely Mike

Those photographers are amazing

Just looks likes something I would see in a Cabela's store

Either way a lot of time and talent to be admired

Fun little bugger

Took him and charlie (4 yo lab/shorthair) to coffee stand 2x in pickup....coffee girls LOVE puppies.  If I knew that when I was single!  Both boys get treats.  3rd time took both to the dump in the old KW 900 dumptruck.  Got to scale to pay and the little stinker was hanging out window looking for a treat from the scale gal.  Then the big one is in my lap drooling on the puppy wanting his!  Girls were laughing it up
