Re: Two Weeks! Give em a break! :0 )

So its been six weeks since we brought Molly home. She's been adjusting rather well! She is a lot more relaxed, she doesn't walk around whining nearly as much as she used to, and she is learning new things very quickly. We taught her how to go and lay on her bed while we get her food ready. She lear...

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...

Just personally, I don't trust my dogs uncrated when no one is home. But my dogs have never really cared, they love their kennels.

Yeah she's starting to relax. Managed to get a couple of shots with her tongue hanging out and tail wagging.

She goes crazy for her marrow bone. Just gnawing and gnawing. But I have to take it away at night because she keeps us awake with it lol

Re: Tie out stakes... ?

Actually the one I use is like the green one in the middle. http://www.petworldshop.com/pictures/tie-out-stakes.jpg Actually years ago my 25 pound pup pulled up the twist stake in about 10 minutes and I then tried the green type which lasted about an hour but she still pulled it up and bent it.

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: Decode the body language and barking...

Good point about the pacing becoming a habit. I don't mind her pacing some as she is just sniffing around and getting used to the surroundings. But its a problem when she just stares at your grumbling and then paces, grumbles, paces, grumbles. I feel like its just her being a bratty teenager, but I'...

Re: Fear or aggression?

Did he pet him on top of the head? I was reading recently that sometimes dogs find a pet on top of the head as intimidating. Where as a scratch under the chin is pretty neutral.

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...
