Re: Dog powered scooter

Maybe a bunch of us can get together, and negotiate a bulk discount? :pray I'm in! I have the same concern about the dogs not liking it enough to justify the price, but I think our giant beastdog would love it, once she got over her initial fear. My little guy, I'm not so sure. He doesn't even like...

Re: Dog powered scooter

That looks like a blast! So do those scooter things have brakes? I was wondering about the safety thing too. lol I haven't used one yet, but yes they do have brakes, and the human has control over steering (thankfully!). We're going to give the Springer a try first on our heavy cargo bike, but I su...

Great, thanks so much! I needed to hear this from a PB owner :)

Re: Dog powered scooter

I don't, yet, but soon, I hope. I like the dog being behind the steer wheel, so you're not as reliant on voice commands for steering. If you do get one, please let me know how it goes. I'm only hesitating because of the price, but I think it would be the perfect way to get a lot of energy out of th...

Hey there, thanks for asking about Piggy :) It's too bad you can't adopt, but better to wait until it's the right time anyway. The right dog will find you! Piggy was evaluated by a local rescue group that adopts out mainly pit bulls. They're working on finding him a better foster situation, and they...

Oh and I should add... I think this was in the original description, but he can't be around small dogs either. I'm serious when I say that his prey drive is really strong! His previous owner (2 owners ago) took him to a doggy daycare when he was younger, and he picked up a small fluffy dog (yorkie, ...

If I wanted to adopt him, and after I fill out the app, what are the next steps? I'd give him a fabulous life, and he'd have a new sister! Callisto gets along great with other dogs. Maybe we can set up something to where they can meet first to see how it goes? I watch his video of him fetching Phil...

Are you interested in adoption or fostering? We did have a nibble from Cares 4 Pets, the UPenn vet student rescue. They're going to evaluate him with one of their test dogs. Fingers crossed they have a foster home! You should SEE this guy chasing a ball at full tilt. WOW. I've never seen a dog with ...

URGENT FOSTER NEEDED in PA

As some of you know, Piggy was taken in as an emergency foster. Over the past few weeks, we've come to realize that Piggy can't stay in our home. He has extremely strong prey drive and we have multiple cats in our city rowhome. It's not a good situation for him, and we simply can't put our own pets ...

I wonder if Piggy has a few successes under his belt. Read Reds thread (hey that rhymes) she has some great advice in there. (its a sticky) Keep working on the redirect ..some dogs take a bit longer. I think I have had a few that took weeks to finally stop triggering. Darn it Piggy! STOP IT (sorry ...

Meet Piggy!

Piggy is a young, energetic APBT with a lot of love to give. This sweet guy is on at least his fifth (count 'em, FIFTH) home in his short life--first the people who dumped him in a city park at 6 months old, then a foster home, then two adoptive homes who couldn't make a commitment to this cutie. We...
