Re: We've decided Molly is officially

What area are you in? My phone app doesn't display it. It is true that a rescue likely won't take her/you in for this one time foster...but some will. Almost all will atleast do a courtesy listing for you on their site. It advertises the dog for you, but you are responsible for everything-not the r...

Re: We've decided Molly is officially "foster girl Molly"

I havn't heard anything back from any of the rescues I contacted. Giving it a few days. But I might end up needing some help with resources of my own to find her a good home!

We've decided Molly is officially "foster girl Molly"

We brought Molly home almost two weeks ago, a friend of a friend had found her abandoned and alone. They couldn't keep her, so we took her in as a foster. We tossed around the idea of keeping her, but after much thought and consideration, we decided she should just stay a foster and we can help find...

Re: Bad digestive track possibly?

Thanks for the advice I will be sure to take it. Someone mentioned to me that she might have a bad digestive system,but they never told me what to do or anything. She eats Natural Balance and it's the limited ingredients bag. Maybe I should switch foods? It seems as if it helps with her gas some,bu...

Re: Bad digestive track possibly?

The food we are feeding her now is an all natural food that doesn't have any grains, corns, or by- products in it. Sabrina will not eat out of my hand for some reason. Even when i'm training her,she will not take treats but would rather be rewarded by a nice scratch on the ear instead. Perhaps try ...

Re: Bad digestive track possibly?

Have you tried changing your meat sources? One of my dogs gets worse gas when she's on a chicken based food, and another gets bad gas on fish based food. For whatever reason, duck based food seems to be the least gassy food. One of my min pins has frequent pancreatitus(sp) and then I had a boxer who...

Good point. I havn't given her a bath yet, even though she seems fairly clean.

Re: Our Vet Visit came up with an issue.

I don't agree with your vet. Bully breeds shouldn't be getting their muscles until about 2 years old and if you bulk her up too early you are just setting her up for all sorts of joint and hip problems!

Re: Red/Rashy looking skin on belly.

Okay so she was begging for a belly rub and I had my camera handy so I managed to get a quick shot. And I'm calling Monday to get her a spay appointment set up, so I guess it depends on how quickly they can set that up as to whether I make a separate appointment or not. Do NOT want this chicka going...

Re: Red/Rashy looking skin on belly.

Puppies can claw up their bellies while nursing. Also, post pregnancy/nursing hormone changes can certainly make them lose a lot of fur. I suppose it could be pup related, though I wouldn't be surprised if it was allergies. I would just monitor her for now, as her body readjusts. Yeah I was wonderi...

Re: Red/Rashy looking skin on belly.

And I'd try and get a pic of her belly but she's too shy and timid and I don't want to force her on her back and freak her out.

Here is a pic from last night when she was begging for a belly rub, you can sort of see it.

Red/Rashy looking skin on belly.

Hi there. Molly has a red/rash like looking marks on her belly. They look similar to when my moms boxer has an allergy issue. BUT, she was dumped shortly after having puppies (which was a few weeks ago) so I'm not sure if maybe it is just from her skin being stretched and now going down? Is it norma...

Re: New pit "owner" here!

Well it was either I take her, or she go to the shelter. The shelter is no kill, but she's SO timid that its obvious she would not thrive in a shelter at all. And the woman who found her couldn't keep her any longer. Basically long story short, my sister wanted her and told the woman to cancel her a...
