• How can you legally keep a dog that you found?

    Best answer: with that said let me tell you first that you are already the legal owner of the dog. A person can't throw away trash and then cry it was stolen.

  • Is it time to put down my dog?

    My 15 year old Pomeranian has been looking week and tired than usual. He's recently had trouble walking on his own, meaning I have to pick him up and place him somewhere comfortable. He's also been crying just of this morning. Not whining, crying. Is it time to put down my dog?

  • Can a dog walk on a fractured wrist?

    Best answer: If your dog is running and jumping at times, then the the dog in all probability has no broken bones anywhere. If any bones are broken the dog will hang the affected leg up and will not want to put it on the ground. If the lameness appears after exercise, then it may just be a sprained ligament. You don`t say if... show more
    Best answer: If your dog is running and jumping at times, then the the dog in all probability has no broken bones anywhere.
    If any bones are broken the dog will hang the affected leg up and will not want to put it on the ground.
    If the lameness appears after exercise, then it may just be a sprained ligament. You don`t say if the dog is lame on front or back leg though.
    I assume by "wrist" you mean the front leg.
    Dogs are very stoic though and also with mind over matter may not show lameness on walks, but will show it when at ease at home.
    As the dog has been like this for a week, you definitely need to have her looked at by a vet if you have no idea what is wrong.
    I would not over exert her with any play or walks or running and jumping until you have seen the vet. Just let her potter around at her own pace.

  • Dog keeps dragging his back leg?

    Best answer: Ignore the people about dog houses. The one I feel like you have and are referring to is a sheltered/open one rather than one that's gated and/or similar to crates. I feel like those people don't know much about dog houses (imo) and possibly might assume it's a form of a crate. And the way you phrased... show more
    Best answer: Ignore the people about dog houses. The one I feel like you have and are referring to is a sheltered/open one rather than one that's gated and/or similar to crates. I feel like those people don't know much about dog houses (imo) and possibly might assume it's a form of a crate. And the way you phrased it was like your dog chose to go in his dog-house by himself.

    Anyways, I know he's not in pain which is good, but Check his nails. Not always, but sometimes the length of dog's nails can cause issues for them especially if and when they get too long. So if they seem pretty long, get them trimmed as soon as you can esp. if they're starting to curl because that's actually really bad.

    If the nails are long and do get trimmed where if that's not issue...I would suggest try adding a little bit of tumeric to his food (I know tumeric is supposed to help aid in some functions for a dog) and just add it for about 2, maybe 3 days. And then if that doesn't work, either, then I would Highly Suggest you to take him to a Vet ASAP and if possible, try to talk to them about your financial situation. Of course not all vets are, but some are understanding when someone else may have some financial struggles at the moment.

  • My family wants to get a dog, but it's too soon for me since we put down our last one?

    Best answer: Pets love us unconditionally. They would not feel 'replaced' when another pet is brought in.

    Best answer: Pets love us unconditionally. They would not feel 'replaced' when another pet is brought in. Your dog would not want your family to be sad - indeed, the best tribute to the love of a pet is to bring in another to love. My only advice is to get a dog of a different color from the old one, and to understand that the dog will never, ever be a replacement. Why deprive the rest of the family from loving a new dog? You can choose to ignore he new dog, and not be involved, but maybe in time you'll change your mind about the new one.

  • My puppy almost killed a bird, should I be worried?

    My dad found an injured bird and brought inside the house and my puppy approached it, sniffed it, and then he got one of its wings and started shaking it. My pup is a two month old pit bull. Will he exhibit violent behavior to other animals in the future because of this?

  • Why does my dog not make any noise?

    Best answer: Bulldos snort and generally make weird noises, so don't worry about that...

    Now, Bulldogs generally don't make a lot of unnessesery noise...
    It depends on the dog... You can get it checked though

    Hi, so we adopted a rescue dog last week and she had been wonderful, very placid and calm. Today we took her out for a walk on her lead, two chihuahuas were also out and my dog saw them and immediately started growling and pulling to get to them. She was on her lead so I thought I could just pull her away. I was so wrong. Her lead snapped and she went sprinting towards the dogs, she very viciously attacked one dog, she had her in her mouth scragging her from side to side. I was doing everything I could to stop her, I had my hands in her mouth trying to open her jaw. Eventually she let go but the other dog is very injured. She's in surgery now for a punctured abdomen. I'm absolutely devastated, my parents have taken the dog as I have a two year old in the house and I can't take that risk. We exchanged details with the other owners dog and he's going to let us know how the dog gets on in surgery. I've been crying ever since it happened, I'm heartbroken. I need advice.

  • Is taping a dogs mouth shut considered an acceptable way to keep a dog from barking these days?

    Is taping a dogs mouth shut considered an acceptable way to keep a dog from barking these days?

    Best answer: The person who did this needs a desperate "come to Jesus" talk, however, I do use Electric bark collars when I need them for dogs that need to shut up and I have used them for over 3 decades.
    If you consider that to be cruel, you have issues you need to address.

  • At what age is the earliest for a dog to breed?

    Best answer: Your dog does not want or need to have a litter - it's unhealthy for her, and what on earth would you do with the puppies? Sell them? What if you can't? What if they're born with genetic deformities or diseases? It's more common than you think. There is also huge risk to the b*tch. Who will NOT be... show more
    Best answer: Your dog does not want or need to have a litter - it's unhealthy for her, and what on earth would you do with the puppies? Sell them? What if you can't? What if they're born with genetic deformities or diseases? It's more common than you think. There is also huge risk to the b*tch. Who will NOT be healthier for having a litter, and who is NOT "craving" the opportunity to "be a mother". She couldn't care less if she had a litter or not and certainly isn't longing for puppies.

    To answer your question: A b*tch should only be bred once she is physically mature (minimum two years of age) AND after she has passed her genetic screening for both common/general and breed specific diseases (which cannot be done until she is physically mature). Ideally she should also be titled in something, or be a working dog, otherwise she is contributing NOTHING of quality to the gene pool.

    The stud dog should have the same requirements. Both dogs should also be tested for STDs prior to breeding. There is NO reason to breed an untested pet-quality pet. Period. End of. There are hundreds of thousands of these kind of dogs ROTTING in shelters. Breeding for purely selfish reasons is not responsible.....

    I got a German shepherd today, she's 4 years old. I plan on keeping her outside because my parents don't want her inside since she's so big. I don't plan on keeping her in a cage forever. I will take her out regularly to play and exercise and walk her, if all of the little kids in my home are inside or not home I will be letting her out and to run the yard. She won't be completely isolated, if the kids are gone she will be in the garage with all the adults just chilling and at night we out her back in the cage. She will be treated monthly to prevent worms and fleas. I'm going running a lot this summer so she'll be very active and I believe she'll be worn out by the time we get back lol. She's very energetic that's why. I don't see a problem in how I'm going to keep her, I will try to convince my parents to let me bring her to my room and only my room. Just for a little though because she sheds like crazy. Is this okay? Like I've raised multiple dogs this way before and their all fine.
