Amber Kush - 2014-07-20
Zeus is a rescue puppy. We were told he is part Rottie and part German Shepherd.  However, I'm not sure if that's the case. He kind of resembles the Rottweiler and I guess I can see German Shepherd, however, he looks to me to be more of a terrier. I have searched all over the internet to try to find a puppy that looks like him so I can try to determine his mixed breed. I still want to keep him, no matter what, but let's face it, every dog owner wants to know what breed their dogs are. Zeus has a very special place in our hearts. He was found in a dumpster tossed away like a piece of trash at the age of 5 weeks. I guess he culd have been the runt, or possibly stolen from his litter, or just the 'unwanted or unsellable' puppy. But, to us he is our little baby boy, and an explosive burst of energy. He has all the active traits of a Rottweiler puppy.  At first we were just going to take him and get him to the vet to make sure he was healthy. We were going to find him a forever home and trust me numerous people wanted him, but we were so picky as to who he would go to, and that's when we decided that we were so picky because he already had found his forever home, and that was right here with us. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what breed he may be?

    He sounds simply darling! As far as breed, without knowing where he came from, it is just a guess. The rescue's guess is about as good as anyone's.
  • Amber Kush - 2014-07-22
    Thank you for your feed back. We actually got him from the police dept the same day they found him. We took him straight to the vet. He has gained almost two pounds in a week and a half. He is doing great and fitting in very well with the rest of the family!

I recently adopted a Guinea pig, though I don't know how his previous owners treated him as his nails are almost an inch in length. I am worried for my lil friend. How or what do I do please help?

    It sounds like his nails need to be clipped. Their nails, like ours, continually grow though they are usually worn down naturally if the guinea pig gets out for regular exercise.

    You can take him to a vet to have the nails trimmed, or you can get small animal nail clippers at a pet store and do it yourself. Be careful though, not to trim too far down and into the 'quick' (blood vein in the lower part of the nail). Because the quick will have extended far down into the nail, I suggest you only clip just a little off at a time, and then do a bit more a couple days later. As you do this, the quick will recede towards the foot and then its safe to clip the tip of the nail again. If you cut too deep (into the quick) the nail will bleed. You can get Quick Stop at a pet store, which will quickly help stop the bleeding. A second option is to use some corn meal. Corn meal isn't quite as good, but it does also help stop the bleeding.  Once you have the nails at the desired length, clip them on a monthly basis or as needed.

Everything about these magnificent living creatures is amazing, i highly recomend them as pets. I have a male and a female. Fortunately my female is such a sweetheart, shes actually mellow enough to chill out and walk around on your hand. ill walk around with her on my shoulder. The male on the other hand wont let you get even the slightest, close to him. The stings feel like taps, the pincers on the other...OUCH! In other words you'll know exactly how each ones individual personality is. i started with her on a table and without stressing her walked her back on to my hand, slow and steady is key, twitch and theyll get ya. can ya blame em. DONT GET A SCORPION IF YOUR ALERGIC TO BEE STINGS! Another bit of advise, dont start aggressive. The flatrock scorpion is similar to the emperor but different in appearence. the desert hair is also similar just dont recommend handling them and they are slightly more toxic, but usually only results in a small area with strong pain that goes away in a couple minutes. look em up...you'll like them

Hello,

I have 18 black emperor scorplings that need homes ASAP. They were born in April 2010. I bought the "mom" from a breeder in Cleveland and it turned out she was pregnant :/

They are all in a 55 gallon aquarium right now. I'd like to give away the whole thing but I'm willing to give them away individually.

  • chris ward - 2011-08-02
    I've been looking to breed my female emporer scorpion. I bought her a few months ago from a pet shop and I'm willing to pay for shipping if you still have your scorpions. I'd be willing to take 5 or so. I've got a nice 100 galon tank with plenty of moss and watering pans and a nice humidifier I found on amazon. Maybe hit me up :) thanks
  • jonathan - 2011-08-21

  • christopher martinez - 2011-08-28
    sorry to hear that but if so i would like to take the whole thing off your hands and give them a good home
  • Richard Carroll - 2011-10-15
    I'm very interested in buying a scorpion from you. I do want just one as I am a beginner. If you still have some left please contact me by my e-mail. I also have some questions about their habitat. I've heard many different things, but would like to hear it from someone who actually has experience. I know I keep seeing them in sand at pet stores and am now reading that is wrong for the emperor. Even if you have none left I'd still like to talk about habitats and if you might put me in touch with a breeder. What got my attention with you is the word "breeder". I want one from a breeder and NOT from the wild. I have no interest in people destroying colonies just to sale. I was looking for a female, but you saying yours was preggy when you got her kinda spooked me cause I have only a 15 gallon tank at the moment. Please contact me if you can help me out or get me in the right direction. Thanks for your time, Richard

Kelly Hoffman Patterson - 2014-07-14
I have a 5-6 yr old Fjord, shy of 15 hands and about 1100lbs. Just moved him to Florida from Nebraska. Everyone that sees him says he is fat. He does not have a belly and to me, looks good. Only thing I notice, but thought it a Fjord thing, is his crested neck. He is in a large paddock but does need some exercise, which starts this weekend with the round pen. He is only on hay, from Nebraska, right now. Should I be feeding anything else? supplements, etc?

    Sounds like you have a wonderful horse. Hay is very good and should be the main component of a horses diet as it provides roughage. There are also many specialized supplements for coat, joints, and hooves that can be fed for extra nutrition. However, I would talk to an equine veterinarian in the area about his diet before adding supplementation. You can learn more diet in the horse feeding section on the 'Horse Care Page'... here: http://horses.animal-world.com/information/horse-care.php#Horse Feeding

I have a Chinese Algae Eater, got him/her 7 years ago, it was about 1 inch long and 1/2 the size of my pinkie finger and now its the same length of the heater in my 10 gl tank and almost as wide, its very active, spashes the water, pushes the rocks around the tank, and lives with a an Albino Chiclid. 

I also have a 55 gl tank which has 4 Chiclids, 2 Parrot fish, 2 Tinfoil Barbs, & 2 Tire Track Eels.

The Albino Chiclid can not live with the other Chiclids because they kept biting his tail off and he almost died twice from it.

The picture is of my Chinese Algae Eater that I took yesterday.
