Mom is a student in my class, along with her new owner, and the pups are currently being fostered and will soon be spayed/neutered. For more information on the p...

I'm willing to check out the local shelters for you, if that interests you. I can just see if they have any male pocket pits, take a photo if they do, and then if you're interested and the dog is still there, I can do a little temperament test and you can decide if you want to make the trip (assumin...

Sounds interesting, though I hope the prospect of appearing on national television does not end up being the motivation for those who adopt a dog.

if he is very lethargic, you might want to have his heart checked out. Not all vets (who are not cardiologist) can detect a low or even mid grade heart murmur. Some can, others have completely missed murmurs.

I browsed around this site. It's fairly biased. For example: http://www.dogsinthenews.com/issues/0202/articles/020224a.htm This article says a veggie diet is shown to make dogs smarter. But if you read the article: Two of these groups were fed ordinary supermarket dog food while the other two were f...

Bluey (June 7, 1910 - November 14, 1939) is the name of the Australian cattle dog formerly owned by Les Hall of Rochester, Victoria, Australia, which, according to an anecdotal report, lived twenty-nine years, five months and seven days, but the record is unverified.[1] Bluey's diet included regular...

Funny. My female who was spayed at 4 months has great hips. Martin, who was altered after fully maturing, is mildly dysplastic AND had to have both knees repaired. Guess there are other factors to consider, like genetics. Yes, true, and there are people who chain smoke all their lives and never dev...

Also there are articles about Early Speutering being linked to HD! All my future dogs will be intact until they're 18 months old to 2 years old. IMHO and expierience they have a much better look and growth rate and less risk of health problems that are linked to early speutering. Courtney Do you ha...

Re: Interesting statement about "fixing your dogs"

You can't tell me that two intact males will not fight if there's a female in season nearby ;)


I didn't :)

Sophie is still looking for her permanent home! Just wanted to give her a bump up. She's been in foster for quite a while now, and she is really a mellow, easy-going dog that deserves her own place.

Many rescues pull dogs from shelters, some take in strays, few take in owner surrendered animals. If you are willing to foster the dog while a rescue looks for a home, you have a better shot of finding a rescue willing to work with you. Most rescues, quite simply, are just overwhelmed. There are mor...
