Re: looking for a blue pitbull female to adopt

Go temperament first, health second, color dead last if you want a good dog. You find a lot of blues with issues, both health and temperament due to irresponsible backyard breeding. I'd go with an adult if you want to be sure to find one healthy and nice. I wouldn't get one younger than 18 months my...

Re: adoption

Alpha doesn't equal aggressive. It could be that he's the leader because he was there first and she grew up respecting that. However, once his health starts to really fail....if she's the type to push boundaries, she might start showing aggression to him.

Re: Temperament - venting

not only that, some of them just don't grow up OK. Until they are mature, you don't know for sure how their temperament is going to go.

When I said when we've dealt with issues, it's been a dog that was adopted out as a puppy and didn't turn out right as an adult....HA, too DA, etc

Re: Temperament - venting

:goodpost:

It is depressing when it's a puppy and everyone makes excuses. The temperament problems that we have been asked to deal with or take back a dog - it's always been a puppy. It really isn't all in how you raise them.

Re: How to Politely Educate a Rescue?

This might not be what you want to hear but sometimes you have to swim away from a sinking ship. One person can initiate change but you can also make people angry, create bad feelings and problems for yourself. I have found rescuing sometimes more difficult dealing with people than the dogs. The peo...

Re: Adorable Bailey and sweet Tiffany! (NoVA, DC, MD area)

adoptions have been slow all over, I'm not sure it's the economy...I think that's just an excuse. I don't know what it is

Temperament - venting

Why is it..... rescues are willing to over look temperament or let things slide if... the dog is blue (or whatever new BYB color of the month) or physically beautiful - striking color pattern and/or cropped it has papers it is a puppy (holy cow if it is a blue papered puppy) has a "tragic"...

Re: Sweet Steel Magnolia - still looking

With Jade and her yeasty feet issue, someone actually told me to put her on probiotics, Clean her feet with Selsun blue for 2 weeks (daily) and get her on a High protein low carb diet. And that seemed to make the yeasty issue MUCH less. Hope this pretty girl gets everything in order! Sadly, been th...

Re: Sweet Steel Magnolia - still looking

Maggie's still looking. Got an appointment with a doggie derm on Thursday but she's currently on a totally raw meat/bone diet to try and conquer the yeast. Since Venison is her meat, I'm sucking up to any and all local hunters in Richmond VA to try and get deer meat for the lil gal. Would love to ge...

Re: Not a pit bull - American Bulldog

It was a tough decision, one I hope I don't have to make again. I liked Rose but that said, she was a lot of dog and it's hard to live with a dog that wants to body bump you or stand in your way just for the heck of it. As for the kids, there were two in the home, one older and younger. She was fine...

Not a pit bull - American Bulldog

Looking for thoughts. Rose, the American bulldog is coming back to me. She went after one of the children in her adoptive home. I have made an appointment to put her down on Sat, I can't place her. I just don't have enough confidence in my ability to place an AB. She is one tough ass dog and is a do...

Re: Need Feedback your experience as a foster

Here's a terrible face shot of a lemon walker. It's a Treeing Walker Coonhound and the color is lemon and white (which is basically a light tan to brown instead of the traditional black saddle) http://i.oodleimg.com/item/2690580559_1l_dogs_in_atmore_al/?1313744678 http://broadcreekhoundrescue.com/pb...
