Re: Trifexis -- how's it working out for you?

One of our adopters used it on a dog they adopted from us -- caused seizures and temporary blindness (thankfully only temporary).

Re: Not a pit bull - American Bulldog

I'm sorry you had to make such a difficult decision, but I completely understand your desire not to place a dog that has proven unsafe around children. If more people were as responsible and thoughtful as you, there would be far fewer headlines and, ultimately, many more lives (dogs and humans) save...

Also that COULD be a symptom of a low thyroid -- but that's just a big maybe.

Re: Vet forgot to stitch up neutered dog

Have you taken him back? He needs to have that looked at and the wound closed.

Re: X rays prior to adopting?

My GSD rescue friend does that -- but the potential adopters pay for it if they want it. So, yes, if you want your dog to be active and you're concerned about hips or elbows, a good rescue will, in my opinion, have the dog x -rayed for you IF You pay for it. They might balk at the idea of anesthesia...

Re: Luigi missed the part about pit bulls being stoic...

LOL You just made me laugh out loud with the image of him jumping on all fours for a treat and then going back to being pathetic. I had a dog that got an illness that required a regiment of antibiotics. I first noticed it because he wouldn't eat his breakfast, and the dog never met an edible anythin...

Re: Ollie is back with us

Leila, I sympathize. When I got my old gal, I was looking for a middle of the road dog in terms of drive. What I got was a tasmanian devil on speed. To this day, I swear she fixed the temperament test results just so I would pick her (and then showed her true colors once I got her back home when she...

Re: Ollie is back with us

Ollie has been adopted -- again! *fingers crossed* Had very in depth conversations with them about his pros/cons and he's on his two week trial. So far, they report he's doing well and have entertained us with his postings on Facebook, so I'm optimistic he's found his forever home! :)

Re: Ollie is back with us

We will do an out of state adoption for the RIGHT Home, if we can arrage home checks, etc. and if there are no other dogs in the home. (Just in case the resident animal doesn't take to him or he becomes less dog friendly as he matures).

Ollie is back with us

Ollie is a dog we saved from being euthanized at the city shelter. Here is his video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T_HicDiGFc He is an awesome dog, but he's a LOT of dog, which makes him a hard to place dog. :) So, I'm networking him, and we will do an out of state adoption if we can arrange a ho...

Lucky and Cagney

Found these two strays running along the side of the road. Pulled ahead of them, opened the car door, and they both happily jumped inside. Unfortunately, we only had a foster spot for one, so the red and white male (possible mix) went to city animal control (we asked them to give us a heads up if he...

Re: Insurance

Welcome. I would not buy such a policy because my present HO insurance company covers dog bites. But if I was putting a limit and a premium on a standalone policy, I'd say a $300,000 limit and anywhere from $200-$400/year (with the amount determined by size of dog and discounts for obedience trainin...

Re: Meet Blondie...our first pit

If both dogs are spayed/neutered and your new addition is growing up with your JRT, odds are they will be fine together. I've had lots of multi Pit Bull households. BUT you should always use common sense. Feed them separate, give them treats/toys separately, and make sure that you do not leave them ...
