Possible shoulder injury?

I haven't posted in a loooong time, but thought I'd run this by everyone. Isabeau, my APBT, is almost 3 years old. She is what I call, the 'anti-pit bull'...lazy, sleepy, inactive. For her, a leisurely stroll around the block is like running a marathon (she doesn't act like she's straining to breath...

That definitely doesn't qualify as legit as anyone can call themselves a rescue and start asking to take dogs. I'd ask them for a vet reference, find out more about their placement policies. See if they have an adoption application, adoption contract and then do a home visit. THat's not a guarantee...

Anyone familiar with this TN rescue?

I'm looking for any information on Countryside Bully Rescues in Brentwood, TN. A shelter i've worked with is looking for rescues that might be able to pull bully breeds, but they are very picky about where bully breeds go (rightfully so!). I can't find anything out about Countryside by googling, exc...

Whatever you do, do NOT take the the elizabethan collar off at night, or at any other time that you are leaving him unsupervised. Most dogs when given the opportunity to do so, will lick their incision. I've seen way too many dogs come back into the vet hospital because their owners took the collars...

Wyatt will eat crap on a tortilla, i doubt theres even a food on the market that he wouldnt gobble down. but like you said, the more i switch foods on him the more upset his stomach is going to get, which is why im trying to figure it all out in one go.....i suppose really the only way to tell is t...

Cut that post too short...

Mine likes everything, so I guess I never really worry about that. But I know some dogs are pickier eaters than others. If you start playing around with too many different samples though, you may find your dog's stomach getting a bit upset.

Most of these companies also offer sample packs. Usually one pack is about half a feeding so I'd ask for 2 at least to see if yours likes it and then likes it again tomorrow :) This way you still feed some of what they are already eating and you don't end up with the runs. While that would seem lik...

I don't randomly walk up to strangers and tell them the food they're buying is crap. lol I think that would be rude. However, I have started conversation with people at the pet store who look like they're having a hard time deciding which food to purchase. If they don't seem interested in my advice,...

I've personally used TOTW Pacific Stream (This is the salmon & sweet potato formula for sensitive stomachs). My dog did very well on it, but we did later switch to the High Prairie formula, but only because the pet store was out of Pacific Stream. She's done surprisingly well on the High Prairie...

I'm sorry to have brought such mass confusion to everyone. As I said before, I was looking for a dog that would be a medium-large size dog. I thought in getting this supposed boxer/pit bull mix, that was what I was getting. Once I met the guy in a parking lot....with 6 of them crammed into a tiny ca...

ok, i just dont get it. you wanted a smaller dog, around 40 lbs for your demo training.. what would be wrong with a smaller weight if the pup maxed out under 40 lbs? you say you cant have a 3rd dog, if so, why get this one ? do you have 2 already? or 1? my rufus at 8 weeks old was 9 lbs.. he was th...

She looks pretty fuzzy to be a boxer/pit bull mix. I can somewhat see boxer in her head, but...she doesn't look like she is going to get very big. Is there any way you can call the guy you got her from and ask if there was any chance that momma dog 'fooled around' with something other than the Boxe...

You bought it from them?? If so, then just spay her and find her a home. If she's not chipped they won't check anyway. Don't care much, apparently... They were "up for adoption" ...paid a $40 adoption fee. But yes, it does appear now to be more of a sale than an adoption...gotta love Crai...

For small breed comparison, my mom's chihuahua at 8 weeks was 1.5lbs and is now 5 or 6lbs.


I'm curious, how much does your APBT weigh now?

She is not from a rescue. I actually found her on craigslist. She does have boxerish characteristics, but I can't really seen any APBT in her at all. I'm thinking that mom may have mated with something else besides the APBT...as I didn't get to meet the whole litter, but saw pics of some of the othe...
