I am just curious as to why people buy mixed breed mutts and pay huge money for them? At the end of the day, they are still just a mutt and the pounds are overflowing with them. Legitimate breeders try to better a breed, not mix them for profit with another breed to weaken characteristics

there is a comment on here about the Chins' diet containing corn. I was told when I purchased my Japanese chin that the breed is allergic to corn. After my dog accidently ate some cat food containing corn I found this to be true. DO NOT feed your Japanese chin anything containing corn if you value their health!

      It sure is a cute Chocolate Labrador! As you can see by the credits, the picture originated from Wiki Commons as a public domain photo. Perhaps they can help you find the owner. Good luck!

    Rottweilers are mostly not scary and dangerous if treated properly. I have a female rottie who is about 3 years old. Rottweilers are good pets when treated properly.

    I have a longed haired chihuahua. His name's Fluffy. He's a fireball. He's so full of energy all day long. It's really difficult to train him. My mom has another dog. A toy puddle. Her name's Audi and she is very old. She is 16 years old. Fluffy's not 1 yet. But he still tries to play with her like she is a puppy. Fluffy does not like any of our neighbors and hates cars. He tries to chase them on our daily walks. I don't know how to calm him down.

    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.

    Another comment.......our dog(after been given a treat 'sometimes') will go and want to hide.bury it. It's only frustrating when he scratches on the carpet. You kinda feel for these animals because I guess it's instinct. This is the first time I have had a dog that does this. As a boy we grew up with Boxers and the 2 we had did not do this. Is there anything I can do indoors? Outside he does not dig, just munches on bunny turds, eats bark off of little limbs, loves dead leaves. OH and got him a KONG and he will not eat from his bowl ONLY from his KONG.

      How old and how long have you had the dog?
    • Jim - 2012-12-20
      He's 11mos. old, will be 1yr.old the beginning of Jan.
    • Jim - 2012-12-20
      We got him when he was 4 weeks old.
    • Jeremy Roche - 2012-12-20
      They are small and often nervous dogs.  He may have come from a place where he  was not comfortable and may have felt he had to hide his stuff to keep it.  With patience and love he will become comfortable and more then likely calm down.  Try putting something special in his bowl.
    • Jim - 2012-12-30
      We've had him since he was 4wks old.

      My female chi started hiding things when she was 6 months old. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old. This must be a natural dog instinct because I have 3 cousins who also own chi's and their dogs also hide their toys, bones etc. My chi also scratches at her bedding like she is trying to dig. I have had her outside and she began digging a hole like a hound dog, but she is a full blooded registered chi. Must be normal behavior for her. I certainly won't be leaving her alone in the yard to dig holes.

      Last year I rescued a long haired chi mix who is about 5. She does the exact same things...no digging outside except when she finds delicious cat turds (she is a most effective scavenger hunter), loves clumps of dead leaves, digs a bit in the house before she lays down in her bed, and when I give her a big treat meant to occupy her with chewing she will pace around the house whining until she finds a satisfactory place to hide it, usually in the linen closet. My solution was to stop giving her such large chew treats. Now she only gets bite sized things which she eats right away. I felt too sorry for her when she seemed in distress looking for a hiding place.

      Well, I had a doggy, long hair chihuahua, that used to get everything under ground and was afraid of everybody. I took him over to the Psychologist and he advised me to take him over to the graveyard for few nights and to leave him there all night long by himself. Well, I did so but when he came back home we found out that something was killing the cats in the community. It was weird because the cats showed up dead with two holes on their necks and by the time we realized what was happening I fould out that I have been bit by the leg while I was sleeping. I had two holes on my right leg. Then one day I went back to my room and I found my long hair chihuahua sucking blood from a rabbit that I had in the room. The rabbit was already dead. Well, I decided to end the problem and what I did was to remove the two fangs and I tough him how to drink tomatoe juice. Now I have no problems with Draky.

    This is my Maltipoo . Her name is Sasha, she is now 1 year old this picture was taken when she was 3 months old. I really love designer puppies. They are always the best of the two breeds, in my case Maltese and French Poodle.

      The picture above actually is a Shih Tzu, which is a very old dog breed, and not one of the recent designer dogs. The photo was taken in 2006 at the 'Family Pet Show' in Pomona, California. But I bet I your designer dog is really cute, being a cross between two such adorable dogs as the Maltese and French Poodle!
