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.

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 dogbreedinfo.com 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 www.todointuscany.co.uk and he has a Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TodoinTuscany 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 http://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Lennox/125005200853097
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.

dog training show be started immediately when you bring home your dog, Set boundries and show the puppy you are the boss. Gentle but firm. This helps gain respect and also will help the dog to relax due to a structured leadership in the new pack. Training early is the key.

HELP! My dog needs temporary foster care!
I am living in a domestic violence shelter in Johnson County, KS. While here, I have put Migue (mee' gay) short for Miguelito (but he goes by Migue), into various kennels that work with my DV shelter. The first, Wayside Waifs had him neutered and during the surgery, found a large tumor in his abdomen, plus heartworms. Their vet couldn't do the surgery or heartworm treatment. I have since found a vet who will---complimentary--but he says he will not do a thing until I have Migue into foster care, because the kennels would be too noisy and he would need rest.
Please, please please can anyone help us? I have applied for housing, but that may not come soon enough.
My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org (I will be REALLY happy when Migue is okay)
Michelle in Johnson County KS.
I am from Missouri so anyone in the KCMO area or within 100 miles or so is okay. I just want a good place where Migue feels loved and cared for, and when I get my own place he will come back to live with me. Migue is a 60 lb. chow/rott mix, all golden, gut is a real baby. He loves massages and being petted and when he recuperates, I'll be able to take him on our daily walks. (or should I say, HE will take ME on our daily walk!)

Examples of "enough exercise" for a 6mo TW **** Hound at home all day
My sib's TW CH is 6mo old/neutered and crated for 9 hr work day. Great disposition, has taken well to training, knows commands, has lots of loving attn at night, but gets minimal physical exercise. "Yard" is fenced 15/15' - basically a condo yard.
She complains the dog races around house occasionally after coming in from outside, or does some bouncing energetic loving, after she comes home, etc. I think my sib really wants a quiet stuffed animal...but has fallen in love with this pound rescue.
I think the pup is an angel and keep suggesting more and routine exercise, but I cannot point to a reference that explains what "ENOUGH" exercise means or how to achieve it. Is it one 1 mile walk/day? Two 1 mile walks/day? Is it 1/2 hour chasing a ball or will 5 minutes work?
Can anyone help? I am a rescuer of greyhounds - the ultimate couch potatoes once they leave the track!
Need examples of "enough exercise"
