Re: Miami Dade Animal Services, any experiences?

I'm so glad I posted here. First of all, there is an amazing white male with a giant black eye patch in miami dade now, he looks so gorgeous. Second of all, maybe I could help by fostering. I have never done that before, but I want to save these pitbulls, but have been scared to add a third dog to m...

Miami Dade Animal Services, any experiences?

I live up in Broward County, because I own a pitbull. I can't believe how many pitbulls are listed as available on Miami Dade Animal Services website. If the ban there restricts them, how are so many available? Are they being adopted out only if you prove you don't live in Dade? Does anyone have any...

thanks! I cleaned it off with a warm soapy washcloth, antibacterial soap. It looked amazingly good overnight. The little wound is nearly gone and now the swelling has gone down. This was on Guinness' tiny little face, not Cesar. Guinness is eating, barking and romping as usual. He'll let me touch it...

rat terrier attacked pitbull!

My little 11lb rat terrier Guinness attacked Cesar tonight. My friend saw the whole thing, Guinness ran at Cesar and they were growling. Guinness is very dumb when it comes to knowing that he is tiny. The side of his face above his lip has a very small (pencil eraser) abrasion. It bled like crazy bu...

Grinding his teeth?

SO we just moved and life is upside down. I'm in move-in hell, boxes everywhere, painting my bedroom. Endless projects and can't get settled yet. It seems like Cesar is grinding his teeth? It sounds like when a person grinds their teeth while sleeping. I wonder if a dog can get stressed out and grin...

I brought Cesar to the vet after reading on PBF about staph infections. I didn't know they could end up needing antibiotics... He's been itching all summer, he gets allergic to flea bites. He had some allapacia, hair loss, and then I did see some pimples. She took a scraping for mange, negative. She...

sometimes male dogs get that weird hard "balls" thing next to their penis. Don't know what it is, but that's what the picture looks like to me.
