  • Temporary home needed My family and I have to move to irvine CA for my husbands new job and our new apartment doesn't aloud us to bring our dog. I was looking for a temporary home for a year. Her food, vet, and boarding would be paid for. It is breaking our heart she is our family. Looking for a great family to take care of our spoiled dog. She is a 6 year old sweet pitbull named Carmen. She is great with my kids. She would need to be in a single animal house. She is very active. She is up to date with vet needs and spaded. She loves to be loved on and go on walks. Although she always needs to be on a leash. She is used to being inside. It is very important to us we find her a home. We would like to be able to visit her and take her out sometimes. And if family needed to go out of town we would pay for her boarding. Need to find some ASAP.

  • Looking for advice - breaking hound from peeing inside and whining We just adopted a wonderful 2 year old TWC, I take him to work every day, and he is never out of reach with either me or one of my families. He gets at least 2 ours of walks each day, which seems to suffice tiring him out for the most part. But we have a few issues to work on.

    For starters, though we are trying to learn his language about when he needs to go out, there have been several "accidents" that seem rather intentional... he will go into either our room, or my son's room, and pee on clothing. Many times he has jumped on the bed and almost peed there. We are on edge, not letting him out of our site right now because of this. Is there any other way that we can break this habit? Yesterday we had a fairly lengthy standoff where he insisted on jumping up on my desk. I finally took my shoes off and jumped up on the desk myself, so I was towering over him, and firmly told him Down. It seemed to work.

    Also, he seems to become very alert around 8:30 PM - going to the window, looking for neighborhood cats, alternating whining and pacing back and forth. Several times I've tried to take him for a walk to tire him of this, but he resorts to the behavior when we come back inside. (We have toys, make him work for his food, and so on.)

    At times he seems quite submissive. At other times, he seems to really test the boundaries...

  • Seizure Dog I'm looking for a seizure service dog for my daughter. Because of the amount of time it takes to get the dog, my daughter will be 5 by the time the dog comes home.

    There is also a possibility of my daughter being autistic, therefore the dog will be trained in tasks for that as well.

    We need a larger dog that can act as a brace to help my daughter up and to walk around after her seizure. We like long haired dogs. Obviously the dog needs to be good with kids her age. It also needs to be good with other animals, as we have two other dogs and a cat. This needs to be a dog that is mostly docile indoors, but the availability of a large yard to being taken on walks is not an issue at all - we can do that. A high possibility of seizure detection ability before they happen would also be good. This is a dog that will sleep in her bed at night and stay by her side during and after a seizure.

    I am avoiding the main breeds - goldens, labs, and poodles, because they're so common, and I was given the ability to choose basically whatever breed I want.

    Right now, I'm leaning towards a NAID dog. My daughter is drawn to them and so are we. The information I have read from the breeder websites and suggests that it would be a good dog for the task, as well as one of the breeders I've talked to.

    Other breeds I'm considering are Irish Setters, GSD, and Border Collie.

  • Todo in Tuscany - the Dog at the Villa I hope some of you fellow dog-lovers might be interested in our new book, Todo in Tuscany. It's basically the story of the three years we spent in our new home in Italy, which we bought because of the dog who already lived there! His owner had died a couple of years before and he refused to leave so became our dog and we adored him. The book is published by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK and is now available in shops and through the usual online sellers, Amazon, etc. You can find out more at and he has a Facebook page, Many thanks!

  • yellow lab rescue grows up ( a little) after neutering my rescue yellow lab marley, 21/2 seems to be slowing down just a bit and appears to be more trainable. it is probably not that he is growing up but that we have bonded so ENORMOUSLY that he is more eager to please and less apt to be stubborn and contrary. now a couple socialization classes with other dags and i think we might just have the best dog in town. at least in my heart!

  • Canine Clips is supposed to be a Professional Dog & Cat Groomer? We sent our dog to Canine Clips(13/05/11) for his annual hair cut. Latter that night our dog was in great pain in his groin area and anus. He had severe razor burn on his testicles, foreskin and anus. Our little guy, has not been able to rest until Sunday night when I obtained some Calendula salve, which provided relief. Yet if I could afford a trip to a Vet, I would get our dog examined, and charge these people with animal cruelty ! but I'm on a pension, and can not afford it. Thankfully I'm an amateur Herbalist, and could take care of my little baby, relive his pain.

    But this Canine Clips is supposed to be a Professional Dog & Cat Groomer?

    Who regulates these so called Professional Groomers ?

    They hurt my Dog ! What can be done to insure that they don't do this to another pet !

    There is NO WAY he would willing allow anyone to do that to his grown area, without being held and forced. This is torturous treatment for any Man or Beast !

    I contacted them, and they told me our Dog, maybe having an allergic reaction(Ya and I was born yesterday !) they offered a tube of cream to help. lol

  • Please help save this dog and not just this dog all dogs that could be killed just because of how they look
    Lennox is a loveable 5 year old family member. He's an American Bull dog Labrador cross that we have owned since he was a little pup. As responsible dog owners that also foster for numerous Northern Ireland dog shelters we had Lennox as a young pup Micro chipped, Neutered, DNA Registered, Pet Safe Registered, Insured and Licensed every year with the Council without fail. On Wednesday the 19th May 2010 he was taken from our family home by Belfast City Council as they believe he falls under the dangerous dogs act for Northern Ireland. The Council, without seeking any proper professional guidance declared Lennox to be a breed of "Pit Bull Type" and so they wish to kill him simply because he has the appearance of said breed. The Belfast City Council took Lennox from his loving family home using a wrongly addressed warrant and using copyright ADBA (American Dog Breeders Association) breed standards guide which the Council were never authorised to use, in doing so the Council broke international copyright laws and for doing so have recently been issued with a 'Cease & Desist' order from ADBA Inc. Lennox has never attacked anyone or anything yet the Council have removed him from his home where he lives with my Husband, myself, our 11 year old disabled Daughter, his kennel mate Juicy a 2 year old female boxer and various foster dogs. Belfast City Council are pressuring our family to sign him over to them to be destroyed however we feel the need to fight his case, he cannot speak but we will be his voice! If this was a human we would declare this racism. We ask every kind hearted compassionate person for your support, don't let them murder him. This may be our dog today but it could be your best friend tomorrow! Please visit Lennox's main website for further ways in which you can help.

  • huskys to be kept on leads (not always true) i have a sibe of my own now aged 1yr and 19 days and he has been let off the lead since the age of 11 weeks after he had had his inection. we walk him on the lead which he does nicely then when we get to a field or dog walking area we let him off, all dogs are different and if huskys shuoldnt be aloud of leads neither should any other breeds as mine and a few people that live near me take our 4 huskys out together and they are nearly the best ones at re-call. all dogs have the tendance and want to run after something like a collie and sheep, a terrier and rabbits. if you are in a safe area you should be ok, you could try this with an extending lead or long training lead first if unsure, but if you have something to temped them back with at first like chickin or cheese they will associate coming back with a good thiing, but it is important that you call them back and treat them a few times out on a walk not ust when you want to pet them back on the lead, obideants training woud also help as they would associate you as more of a leader and would build up a relationship which is always a good thing to have. as you can see from my picture my husky loves being off the lead and playing, and if he didnt go off the lead he would be sp hyper.

  • My Chiweenie...Amazing Grace, Aka, Maizy... Maizy is a 7 lb. chiweenie that I rescued from a puppy mill that was shut down in another state, leaving 265 dogs in small crates in a dark, cold warehouse. Over 85 of the dogs had to be euthanized. I saw Maizy & new I had to make the 11 hr round trip to get her. I just wanted her to live her little life out in a safe place. I got more than I bargained for!! When I picked her up after a month of her recovering from her surgeries, (She had a broken jaw & was spayed), she was so tiny and shook all over. The foster mom said she spent the month behind the sofa. As I held her close to me, her whole body shook. I wrapped her in my coat & held her & attempted to comfort her. After 3 hours of driving we stopped to get a bite to eat. Maizy got her first taste of Chicken Mc Nuggets. I knew I was breaking through her fear already. Though we had a long way to go..getting used to people, a house, the outdoors, the car, noises, day light, a bowl, a bed, toys that she had never had, our other dogs, etc., she came further than we ever expected she would. After only one year, Maizy won first place for her tricks at a Humane Society fundraiser we attended in VT. Besides her mini agility course, she sits, lays down, gives me 5, turns around on "4 paws", turns around on "2 paws", rolls over, crawls, heels, stays, comes, & cutest of all, she will show you her "Praying Paws"! She's not only an adorable long-haired chiweenie, she is super smart! Every morning & every evening she presses her face to mine & just hugs me for the longest time, then gives me a little kiss. My goal was to change Maizy's life, & I feel I have reached that goal. However, I think Maizy has truly changed my life more. She has given me the most unconditional love, companionship, joy, & laughter anyone could give. We really cherish our little Maizy. I can't hide that she is my favorite of all. She loves us & we love her!

  • Aussies - Buyer Beware This breed is awesome, but not for everyone. And, the last thing you ever want to do is purchase one from a pet store, puppy mill, Internet volume breeder, etc. There are a lot of serious health problems that crop up in this breed, so go with a reputable breeder (referred by the Aussie club) or get one from ARPH or other reputable rescue group.
    Expect your Aussie to be brilliant, affectionate, and energetic. However, if you have a busy house, and lots of new people in and out, some Aussies are apt to begin to try to establish order by herding the people, even to the extent of a well placed nip or poke. These dogs do best with non-confrontational training, such as clicker training, and with exceptional early socialization and training. Not for novices, but an experienced owner who wants to do dog sports might be a perfect match.
