Re: Hello! A Little Help!

:inlove: :inlove: :inlove: Are you planning on keeping her? Either way, seeing what resources may be available at local shelters and rescues (including potential foster litter mates, feeding tips and vet care/testing) could be helpful. Re the legs, I'm not a vet, but I have seen many young pups, and...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Those dogs provide a public service - the hunter may be profiting but those hogs are destroying property, livestock, and crops and they ARE man-made. Wild hogs like these are not native animals to North America. They will attack your children on their way to the school bus stop. They will break dow...

Re: On a killing spree :(

Sounds like this female, who has a history of serious aggression, should not be around other dogs. For their safety, and for hers (and your legal safety). Not the puppy (who should be having good experiences with dogs to learn they aren't all angry) and not strange dogs. Can you find places to walk ...

Re: Sleeping Solutions For Backpacking Dogs??

If she enjoys sleeping under the covers at home, she'll probably take to a little sleeping bag just fine. Mine LOVE sleeping bags (and try to sleep in mine...with me).

Re: Found really sweet pitbull

Someone may be searching for her. Dogs can wander far and wide, so the owner may not know to knock or post in your neighborhood. Call or visit animal care and control and report a "found dog" ... They will match your description to reported lost dogs, and will make a record of the found do...

Re: Found really sweet pitbull

Any vets office will have a microchip scanner, they should be willing to check for one.

Re: Pit Bull won't play nice with other dogs...

Two things I've noticed with my very rude dog (who is around a year old)... Firstly, neutering helped A LOT. He still has terrible play manners, but the impetus to posture and get upity for hormonal reasons has abated noticeably. Secondly, my dog was initially allowed to play rough with my roomates ...

Also, how much slippery elm do you give? Nugget is 55-60 pounds, moderately active.

Re: evil pooh

@FBODGRL Chicken breasts with skin on... Not sure about the sodium. No bone involved. My other dog won't touch raw chicken, so I bought it (on a huge sale) thinking it would be a chance to see how well he would take to it-the idea being I would commit to whole chickens pending he likes them (he love...

Re: Dog keeps putting holes in wall help?

If more exercise and more food related toys are enough to end the destruction, awesome (my older dog stays home alone, loose, with a bone to work on, and is no prob). If she's still destroying things though, better to be exercised, then spend a few hours safely in a crate or on a tie down with chews...

Re: evil pooh

He got some yoghurt for breakfast in lieu of more chicken. I have used pumpkin before, but am also hearing good things about slippery elm... I guess I wonder how common it is for dogs to just not be able to handle raw chicken, and how long I should keep trying (with a digestive aid). It's definitely...

evil pooh

Like most people who have been responsible for a puppy-especially before crates became popular-I can go from the deepest slumber to on-my-feet wide awake the instant I hear what sounds like pee hitting carpet/linoleum/any indoor flooring. This early morning I heard what I thought was pee-pee, but in...
