I think there is someone on the board who has a dog who had this. I had a basenji who dislocated her hip (escape artist kicked by cow) and they did this and it worked just great. It took nearly a year for her to really walk normally on it, but she was fine after that as long as I kept her weight dow...

I don't know what role if any that he played. I did find an anti-BSL anti-animal rights site that seemed anti-Kucinich, but they didn't have any specific information. Their point was just that he was a vegan and an animal rights supporter so he must be pro-BSL. I'm not sure that the two HAVE to go t...

I'm glad all your hard work and worrying has paid off! He sure looks like he's enjoying his new hip.

Yay!!! It's wonderful that you could be there for him. All dogs are deserving but he seems to have that special light and trust like you said. I'm so glad that he has his chance.

I have had good luck sleeping next to their crate the first night so they associate it with security rather than being deprived of security. Then I progressively move them away from me (or me from them) over a span of a few nights. I also firmly believe in not letting them get too upset in the crate...

Though to some degree male horse can control 'it'.... When I took riding lessons my instructor insisted that we learn to clean 'sheaths'... All her geldings were trained to 'drop it' on command. So I guess they could control it. I never thought about them retracting on command though.

It really looks like an allergic reaction to something. If he doesn't seem distressed you could give him a 25mg benedryl. Then I would take him to the vet if it doesn't look better soon. If he shows any signs of distress (trouble breathing, etc) I would take him to the e-vet.

I think you should do what you need to do. I boarded by young pit mix a few years ago when my elderly basenji was unsuccessfully battling for her life. She died and I left him in the kennel for a couple extra days so I could mourn her - I just didn't think I could be as kind as i needed to be to him...

They would worry me as a breeding prospect, but that is a moot point. As a pet, I wouldn't worry unless they had shown signs of fear-biting.

I had something similar off to the side of my garage when I lived in Idaho. It was 20X20 and was 3 panels. One panel had a gate built in. The panels weren't premade, but the fencing company constructed them for me and it wasn't much more than premade. The panels were attached to the side of the gara...
