• Why don’t people train their dogs to stop approaching people?

    I had a Pomeranian come up and stick it’s tongue out. It just stood there for no reason. The owner saw nothing wrong. This isn’t the first time I seen this. I’ve had plenty of dogs come up to me and do the same. Mostly I ignore it, but if they follow me or sniff me then I tell them to go away, leave me alone. I... show more

    I live in a townhouse with 3 other roommates in an apartment complex next to the university I attend. I have a small dog, and one of my other roommates who lives upstairs with me also has a chihuahua that she keeps closed up in her room because he doesn't like other dogs. I really want to adopt another dog that I have my eye on at the shelter, but when I called and asked they said they only allow two dogs max per unit and my other roommate is renewing next year like me so I'm not allowed. But how would they even notice? None of my other roommates mind another dog, all of the dogs are really laid back and don't cause any damage, and unless management comes in and counts the dogs I don't know how they would notice anything.

    So firstly, before I got my Rottweiler I researched extensively and I know that they re very intelligent and naturally protective without feeling the need to be aggressive at all times. My dog is almost 4 and we ve raised him with so much love and care, and we absolutely love the way he is! I definitely didn t get a Rottweiler for their very wrong reputation, but because of how intelligent, loyal and beautiful they are. He s an excellent dog with a really big heart. With that being said, there s been an increasingly large number of robberies in my area recently which has me wondering if my dog is too friendly. He literally is excited to meet EVERYONE he sees, jumps and licks them without hesitation. I know Rottweilers are meant to be good at reading situations but I cant help but think if someone was to break in, that he d just want to play with them and maybe make himself vulnerable to being harmed in the process. He RARELY ever barks, pretty much only when another dog barks at him and even then most of the time he d just growl (which I don t mind, just explaining a point) are there any Rottweiler or dog owners in general that has been in a similar situation? I guess I just want to know whether his protective instincts will kick in if need be, or are some Rottweilers just too loving? Thanks, sorry for the long paragraph I just don t want to sound like a douche who bought a dog for it to be aggressive and stuff, because I wouldn t change a thing about him! Just curious

    I have a 48 LB 3 year old husky/pit mix and she has always looked slightly underweight to me and she has never ate a proper portion of food as she should daily. Some days she would refuse to eat all together. I took her to the vet a few days ago and every test they did for heartworm , parasites , etc. Came back negative. They also said she looked a healthy weight to them (maybe a pound or two underweight ) but now she has completely stopped eating any hard food I give. I tried changing to a higher end brand and still nothing. I bought her a cheap can of pedigree soft food and she eats it right up and I realized if I mixed a little hard food with it she would eat every last bit. What brand of soft canned food would you recommend for her ? And how much do you think I should feed her a day ? Thanks for any genuine answers. I just want my dog to eat proper no matter what it takes. 🤗

    Hi everyone, I've been living with my boyfriend for 2 years, we already have one lovely Cocker Spaniel. But I have seen a Sighthound breed that I would really like. He is 2 years and is 27tts, I would be the main carer for the dog. He is lovely natured and also well behaved. I am meant to be picking him up tomorrow. Recently our Lurcher passed away who was only a puppy due to heart failure which has been heart breaking for me and my boyfriend. Lurchers are my favourite breed of dog. And I would like to get another, I have thought about this and I think it will ease the pain, but my boyfriend is the opposite, he said that he doesn't want another lurcher breed, and only have Cockers in the future.. Which is not what I want. I have sat him down about this and it's a NO every time I bring up possibly getting another Lurcher. But for some reason I feel like it's an excuse, because if I brought home a Spaniel he would accept it. I mentioned this dog to him and he got angry and said he wouldn't want to be a part of the dogs life, he says he loves me but he would have to move out if I brung another dog home. He said "What is wrong with what we have now?" My reply, "I would like to have a Lurcher, you already have the dog you like" him "You can't replace Penny" My reply, "I'm not trying to replace her, I just thought it would be a nice idea to get another dog for us both". Am I being horrible here? Please help!!

  • Is the vet double-charging me?

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up.

    On December 2nd, 2017, I took my pup to the vet for her very first check-up. She got her rabies shot, a pill for fleas, and we were told that we had to come back on the 28th so she could get the 3 other shots she needed. We were told we paid for everything up in the first billing, which I paid in full. The bill looked like this: 12/2/2017 PUPPY/KITTEN EXAM - $53.00 DHPP VACC - $29.50 LEPTO 4WAY VACC FIRST - $30.00 LYME DISEASE VACC FIRST - $44.50 RABIES VACC - 1 YR - $25.50 BIOHAZARD MEDICAL WASTE FEE - $4.00 DRONTAL PLUS 45 LBS AND GREATER - $48.75 Total: $235.25 I have the 'receipt' that shows I paid the $235.25 in full, and my bank statement shows the transaction was processed on 12/04/2017. Now like I said, on the first day she ONLY got the one rabies vaccination. They had us come back on the 28th so she could be given the DHPP, the Lepto and the Lyme shot. Since everything was paid in full, we were allowed to just leave on that day. However, a bit ago we received a letter saying that we still owed them for the 3 shots she got on the 28th. On the most recent letter, it was hand-written that if they don't get a payment and turn it over to a debt collector, we won't be able to pay it unless we pay it in full. Now, they're charging us for the DHPP ($29.50), the Lepto ($30.00) and the Lyme ($44.50). The first letter about this 'remaining payment' said $104 was due (which would be the total of the 3 amounts added up). Am I missing something here about how vets do payments?

  • Can the type of pet tell you about a person’s peronality and the kind of person they are?

    I ask because cat only people seem very different from dog only people. Is it purely preference or is there scientifically more behind it?

    So I’ve had a husky for 7 months and since we’ve gotten him he’s always destroyed everything. And he recently he had surgery because he ate something that caused bloackage which was something he destroyed. Before everyone would always say it was because he was pup but now he’s almost 8 months old he’s I. Training class but he’s still destroying everything!! His vet said to take him out because he’s probably bored so we started walking him 3 times a day and 1 and a half hour at the dog park. But guess what he’s still destroying things even if we leave it out of his reach he always finds something. We’re just scared he’s going to eat something agai. And need surgery again cause it moa something we can afford on a monthly basis he just had one last motn. Any tips?

  • Should I get my dog checked?

    My dog was caught with a little baby mouse in his mouth, but there was no blood, so he didn t really bite on it. He, apparently, just played with it and caught it. The mouse was also already dead. Should I be concerned? He also bit me after a while and I bled.

At a young age I knew which dog was which and how they acted but I had my mind set on a pit bull. I researched and researched the breed and fell in even more in love with it. A year ago was my breaking point. I had been waiting years and years for one but always told they were bad dogs. My boyfriend got me one. She was only 3 or 4 months old. I fell in love. Nothing mattered but her. She was always glued to my hip. I swear she was the best thing to ever happen. She could have been the poster dog for stop bsl. She loved life. She loved everything. From rabbits, to cats, to even horses (even though she was trying to play with a donkey and got kicked). She brightened up every bodies day. All the neighbors knew her cause she would go visit them. (We live in the country). They had toys for her and treats. People that I didn't know knew her. She was just that radiate. Well we lived on 18+ acres then. She loved to roam and she had enough space to do it. She was an inside dog btw. We moved from there (we lived with our grandparents at the time) a few miles away to a house with 5 acres. I always kept a close eye on her because we lived like a few feet from a busy busy busy busy road. I didn't want to move there in the first place because my cousins friend had her pit bull stolen a few years before on that same -

Temperament- in my opinion, cats are not as loveable to me as dogs are. 7. I’m the BOSS and thats it. I rule my castle and not the cat.
