    I disagree...but that's ok. This place would be boring if we were all the same.

    If it is a bloodhound, it means just that, it's a bloodhound. The minute we start trying to second guess things based on looks (or breed in this case), is the minute we are going to start getting things wrong.

    There are no hard and fast rules as to what breed can do what, and by putting things in boxes like that many a trainer or handler have missed out on a lot of great dogs. It is true that there is a large group, largely in the south that some of us refer to as the "good ole boys" that believe that a bloodhound is the only way to go (largely when talking about trailing/specific scent work). This is a very narrow minded way of thinking and very incorrect.

    There are bigger issues, like a small dog with short legs is not going to be able to run a trail that is on hot pavement or for great lengths. A dog that has no drive to find anything (a ball, a toy, a squirrel, pick your poison) is not going to have the drive and desire to search for much of anything. KWIM? SAR is much more open than police K9 work. Obviously there are more limits with cop dogs because a cocker spaniel is not going to be very good at taking a criminal down no matter how tough said cocker is!

    Those being abused don't leave for many reasons. For one, they may genuinely love the abuser. The abuser isn't abusive all the time, and when they aren't, they can be very captivating and charming. They also can frighten the person being abused into not leaving, by threatening them with all sorts of hell.
    I don't know what was going on with dad. I am not sure, I'm no expert, but I have worked with those who were severely abused by spouses... including men.

    I'm also going to say something that I hope won't offend anyone here, but I have had a few Australian male clients of the working class. Many are meat and potatoes and beer guys who may love their kids, but work alot, go to the pub, spend an occasional weekend with the wife and kids, and live in a 'man's world'. I don't know if that was the case here, but it sure sounds as though he was distanced from the child. He may have figured he was married to this ' Sheila', it was up to her to take care the child.

    Also, men escape abuse many times by working extra hours, and absenting them as much as they can for 'legit' reasons, such as work. He probably also didn't 'see' too much into the relationship between his wife and daughter.




    [QUOTE=MandyLeigh;5691092]I was reading what some of you where saying in the last thread about her father possibly being abused and stuck here in the states.

    My feelings are that he was working a job. He was the one making money. He claims he worked so much that he hardly saw his daughter. He could have taken Z and moved into another apartment far away from the abuser. There should be no problem supporting just himself and his daughter. I do not believe he was stuck with EB.

    You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
    But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.

    Here in this video at 1:42 and 2:02 it shows the dog I was talking about. There were other dogs out there also. Who knows, they apparently didn't find anything so the point is moot. MOO

    Where are you Zahra????

    I totally agree with everything you said. The question was posed if there are breeds that are COMMONLY used and that's what I was responding to. Of course there are many other breeds that are both capable and do perform all sorts of work. And in this case if it were a coonhound / bloodhound on the site and the media is reporting there are cadaver dogs I don't think it's a huge jump to guess that's what that dog is sniffing.

    HOWEVER, in the other photos & videos posted it does look like a rott. Who very well could ALSO being a cadaver dog

    I always thought LE made it a point to keep people away from their searches..

    I thought they did that because when the trial comes up, the DNA if often used...
    If he is charged, his lawyer could say "well, he was there when they found her body, of course his DNA was there...
    Personally, I don't get it.. kwim..??
    .. Please help Kyron come home!!

    Faherty was able to speak with Baker on camera Friday afternoon. "I appreciate everyone, everyone doing what they're doing. I just hope they just keep looking. Try to find my baby," Baker said.

    Faherty asked "What do you think happened to Zahra?" .

    "I don't know," Baker said.

    Faherty also asked "Do you think your wife might have had some involvement?"

    "I don't know," Baker said.

    Faherty said Baker’s main point was to thank everybody who has helped in the search.

    Faherty said after the search, Adam Baker left out a back door walking quickly to a car where he didn't answer any questions but did comment "Everyone knows more than I do. you know."

    This statement: Zahra's mother spoke out that she has been searching for her for five years, and that she just found out last week her ex-husband was remarried and in North Carolina.

    LOL !! I had a lab who is about as useless at sniffing as I am. However, I have another lab who can sniff out a crumb under the couch that's been there for a year. His nose is so sensitive that it drives me insane.
