Re: Small growths on his nutz sack

You might want to look up information about perianal hernias in dogs as they get older. Testosterone weakens the muscles that keep your dogs internal organs from moving into other areas of his body. All it takes is a loop of bowel to slide into the hernia and then not come out again and your dog is ...

Re: Small growths on his nutz sack

Tumors around that area in un-neutered dogs are not uncommon at all.

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

It is still easy to read body language on a dog with cropped ears and docked tail.

Re: Flea and Tick.....

Exactly what chemicals in Frontline are you worried about on your dog? If you really want to understand which chemicals to fear then you need to learn some more about chemistry. There are many many compounds that would kill you in a concentration of 2.7%. Also, if you're really worried about chemica...

Re: When to say When

Can you transfer him to a different foster home? What does the rescue say about killing a dog for this reason?

Re: Temperament Testing

If the dog doesn't eat the community service workers, then it's probably good.

Re: Impossible to place dogs.

If the person controlling the website is being that difficult, why not just request a transfer and have them move him to another foster home? If your only online marketing tool is adoptapet then the best chance you've got of getting him adopted is at an adoption event. Looking at the other large dog...

Re: Impossible to place dogs.

The bio has got to go. First of all, you're contradicting yourself in it. The very top line says he is housetrained but the bio basically says he isn't. The first line also says that he doesn't hold true to his name but then you go on to say that he's having trouble with potty training and he can't ...

Re: Impossible to place dogs.

Can you link his adoption page and also the main website of your rescue? A lot of it has to do with how you market them. First thing I'd do is change his name on your website at least, if not the name he responds to as well. That name isn't going to get him adopted. It might if he were little and cu...

Re: Speutering of mature male/female dogs

Look up "perianal adenocarcinoma" and see if that's something you want Canon to have. It's pretty common in older, male, intact dogs. They bleed, interfere with defecation and look nasty. Almost never malignant, but won't go away for good unless the dog is neutered. I've seen many fosters ...

Re: Garlic for dogs?

The feeding of garlic and a dog not getting fleas are not necessarily correlated. None of my dogs get any topical or oral flea meds and they've also never had fleas. They also don't eat garlic. We live in an area that has a lot of fleas.
