Titan - 2011-05-18
We adopted a pup 2 months ago that we named Titan. He is now about 6 months old. He is the 3rd dog we've adopted into our pack this year. Our children are grown, so it's just the 2 of us most of the time. Titan is the most gentle and loving of all 3. He is protective of the house and his family, including his little brother Harley (shepx) and his big sister, Auggie (Plott Hound/Great Danex). All 3 play together very nicely. Our oldest son has 2 Siberians that come over every weekend. Titan gets along with them too. I would highly recommend this breed to any family with children...you just couldn't ask a dog to be more well behaved!

My 3 yr old longhaired chihuahua just turned 3 on cinco de mayo. He's the best thing that happened to me! He was given ro me as a gift when he was 4 months old. He is very protective of me but has a keen sense of whose good or bad. He's black, tan and white! Gets along with other small dogs. I wouldn't want another dog except him.

    For little fellas, they can be very protective. They have so much personality and and they can be such clowns. I trust their opinion on people.

I have 2 of these beautiful dogs. One is a short hair and the other is a long hair. I am so tired of the stero-type that they are mean dogs. They are both just the sweetest little guys. Yes they bark at the door bell or strangers that come in the yard otherwise they will just lick you to death. They are even great with my 2 yr. old grandson. If he bothers them too much they will go outside or go lay down. The older one will growl if fed up but has never even nipped at him. I never thought I would ever own a chihuhua but now I have a 15 month and a 5 month. I have had them since they were 5 weeks and 8 weeks and wouldn't give them up for anything.

    I loved mine too. I had 6 dogs over 100 pounds and this little guy ruled but I found him to be affectionete and loving with everything, birds, humans and my kids. Now if he could get along with my kids I'd say he could get along with everything.

    Ok I'm 11 years old and I have a Long haired one ..... And yes her name is princess cuz she's adorable I took her to a dog traing on Thingy and she hated the social time she does not like being around other dogs but she's fine with children she just gets shy when she meets new people. One time I was teaching her to sit it took 5 minutes and she knew it but when I found her I was taking a walk around my neighborhood and she followed me home and on my way home my neighbor asked me e\if that was my dog I said no and she said that I should keep it because there was a lot of abused sofa being abandoned here so when my dad got home she was in my other dog cage under a blanket I told my dad it was max my other dog and he said ok but then I had to tell him so a Month later my dad said we could keep her so yay. But these dogs are so adorable playful and energetic princess is extremely fast but she's also lazy... Aha but only when I sit down she's my personal stalker she's my little baby!

We had adopted a wonderful Bully. Soon we saw that he had skin allergies .
We took him to the vet , she determined that he had yeast infection , along with allergies. She prescribed antibiotics and anti fungal meds. he was on them for 4 weeks. We also wiped his paws with vinegar water when entering the house. Also special medicated shampoo twice a week.
The meds made him nauseous at times and he lost some of his appetite.
Now he is free of problems and give him a table spoon plain yogurt to replenish his good bacteria. His appetite returned as well.

    Glad all worked out OK. Somehow we get more attached to our pets when a few things go wrong and we work through them. I am glad for you. Good luck.

I have an 8 month old female bull terrier who is constantly chewing the furniture and carpet. We have tried teething bones, hooves, kongs, etc, to keep her busy to no avail.
Any tips?

    I had a doberman pup that would eat anything and everything. I tried everything I could think of to no avail. I took her to a trainer and my pup, Tara, was returned home to me in 2 days and no chewing ANYTHING. The trainor took Tara into her home and used car keys. Everytime Tara went to chew on something, the trainor would throw the keys somewhere close to the dog. She never threw the keys at the dog and certainly never hit the dog. She just threw the keys close to where the dog was going to chew. She told me to just get some old keys and put them on a chain and when Tara went to get at something not allowed - shake the keys. I just carried the keys around on my belt and when Tara went to eat my sofa, or my shoes etc, I shook the keys. Tara would stop cold. Tara actually ate the linoleum off the floor. I have heard a soda can with pennies in it will accomplish the same thing but soda cans are big to carry around. No harm in trying it. But you do not want to hit the dog. Throw the keys at the sofa or at a wall but not the pup. Hope it works for you - let us know.

I have a chinese crested who has developed a severe food allergy.
Anyone else had a similar problem? He is on just a dry food diet now but still not clearing up.

    I don't know what will work for you vs me but I used Eukanuba and got rid of all problems with my dogs. Shar Pei's are always allergic to something. I even fed it to the pups.
    Vet might recommend Science Diet also. My Shar Pei's always had problems with allergies and food and Eukanuba worked for me.

I have a beautiful Chug that I got when she was 7 weeks old. She is now 12 weeks old. I love my Chug very much. I notice ever since I have gotten her, she is always very warm. There are times when I pick her up, her body feels very warm or hot. Does anybody know if this is normal for my Chug? Please let me know. Thank you.

    Yes this is normal. Toy breeds used to be used as foot warmers back in ancient times and they still run at a pretty warm temperature now!
