My son and I rescued a male EBT when he was 10 weeks old, we were told he had dermatitis, it turned out to be yeast, wich has gotten worse in the last 3 months. We tried oral antibiotics, oral antifungal meds, nothing is helping. We bathe him with selsum blue shampoo, nothing. Any sugestions? Please help, he is chewing his paws raw!

    Try giving a raw diet, glueten and carb free. Find one with no potatoes! Give a tea tree oil based shampoo bath. My sister in laws pekinese has yeast infections she put him on stellas dog food wich is pre packaged raw food but with an English bull terrier there expensive to feed. Find a holistic vet my ebt has skin issues and I resolved them with diet change, I'm a firm believer in not over medicating my dog because it actually will rob there bodies of the good bacteria as well as the bad. Good luck! There are many websites on feeding raw and a good holistic vet can help as well. Most non holistic vets are given commission for the foods they sell and they aren't always the best choice for your situation, vets also don't go go to school for nutrition thhey spend about three weeks learning about companies like science diet.

    Our Bull Terrier had a skin problem when we got him, at 5 months old. We were stumped as to helping him. The 'Vet' made suggestions and treatment, but the advice didn't seem to help that much. Since this is our 4th Bull Terrier in 32 years, I thought no way am I going to let this condition beat our new friend[pet] up. Long story short, did my homework on the computer and connections[clubs] ete. Turned out to be 'MITES'yes 'MITES'. Dirty little %$&*. It was confirmed by the Vet finally. These pests are virtually microscopic and tough to identify and often go overlooked and undiagnosed. Check your 'Bull' for these little devils. They wrecked havoc on our boy. Treated with 'Revolution' drops. Vet will tell you the process. Our 'Bull Terrier' hasn't had a problem since. All his fur grew back and his feet[paws] are beautiful. Hope this will help. It's awful to see them suffer. Good luck.

I'm sorry Ladies & Gentlemen, but there was a shot for Heart worms about about 13 years ago. It would last 6 months, It was great. I never had any problems with it with my Aussie & Chows. Then the FDA pulled it, because of their monthly competition.

I've had a wonderful Lhasa for about 6 years now. Bachelor was about 4 when I got him. I inherited him from a friend because he'd bitten a little girl. The first couple of years were rocky. He wasn't housetrained and had severe separation anxiety when I would be gone at work all day. I had another female dog in the house, Sunni, but apparently she wasn't enough company. After many sets of chewed up miniblinds, my neighbor took it upon herself to start babysitting him everyday while I was at work. It worked out great for about a year! ...until they moved. Oddly enough, he's done fine ever since. We've since installed a doggie door so he, the Lhasa-Poo mix, Sunni, and Maxx the Golden Retriever have the run of the place and Bachelor has adjusted nicely. He's so spoiled. If he's not sleeping at our feet, he's up on our pillows right by our heads or between us. Lhasas are great dogs, but I agree, they don't like the teasing. We have actually had to 'learn' how to play with him because he plays different than the other 2 dogs. We are more careful with him so he doesn't feel threatened by play that is too rough, even though it's not intended that way. He has definitely picked out the 'leader of the pack' around our house. I would recommend Lhasas to any couple without children. They are great companions!

    I have a 2 year old male Lhasa apso and since he was very young he has absolutely adored all my grandchildren from newborn to 18 years old. When he hears th very young grandchild cry he gets very concerned and wants to lick him. He runs around and plays with the 3 and 8 year ild as though he was another child and the 15 and 18 year old he gives them lots of live back in return to what they give him. He loves everyone who is involved in my family but very wary of strangers who cime to my door. He is sociable with other digs but he us clever enough to give a wide berth when off his lead when he sees a dog he is unsure of.

Also, she'd eat rocks if I let her, she is not picky at all. She also is TERRIFIED of cats, but loves chasing squirrels.



She's wearing her bandana ironically.

I managed to train the barking almost completely out of my Papihuahua, Gertie. She barks only when another dog approaches her territory. Papillions can be quite territorial and she gotten a lot better. That is the only time that she isn't the best dog in the whole world. She is not afraid of strangers; she loves being pet by them. She LOVES kids. SO MUCH. She is so gentle with them but if they want to play, my god she will chase them! She's not a big player. I mean, she'll occasionally run around like a crazy person, but she is rather afraid to play in front of big dogs because I guess they want to play back. But if it's just her and another small dog, she'll usually tear it up. She loves walks and exercise. She's a great cuddler and loves our night-time cuddle sessions. She was very difficult to completely house train, eliminating in the house up to a year of age. She's four now and there's no problems. She took to crate training very well and loves her house on the main floor. Teaching her new tricks is easy it just takes ten minutes and some patience. But she understands many different commands, and I'm pretty sure that she understands the tone with which I say the same words. She is the best dog in the whole world.

OMG - I am so glad you guys mentioned again and again how picky they are. I went to Petsmart and bought a sampling of all the highest-end dogfoods they offered and finally found one my papihuahua (better than 'chion,' don't you think?) loved, but she quit eating it after a month. She loves people food, though, especially protein bars and popcorn chicken. The only way to insure she eats is to feed her with her bigger sibling, a Westie. Her natural dominance insures she will eat if he is around to keep him from getting it.

    Haha! That's hilarious. My Papihuahua is so not picky at all. She would eat rocks if I let her. She's always waiting in the kitchen to be fed. I'm sure she would just eat the whole bag if I let her! She is on a raw, grain-free diet though. I find she gains weight very easily on dry food and she not only loves the raw food, but it's much easier to maintain her ideal weight.
