Our rescued Chion is the sweetest little guy. He's skiddish around strangers and barks as a protective measure. Learns super fast and is eager to please. High energy, loves walks and car rides.

I have a senior Chug rescued from a local Shelter. This baby started off very happy and very playful. After a week this poor baby has stopped being playful and sleeps constantly. She is not eating, and she continues to get sick not long after eating, but it is not food she is spitting up, it is bile. I have taken her to the emergency room and they said her blood tests show no problems. Please anyone, can you give advice to someone who knows nothing about caring for this little girl, she is so precious, and I fear I am losing her quickly.

    Possible food allergy. Will be a challenge but try starting with various forms of nothing but sweet potatoes for minimum of 10 days to see if any positive result. Resist temptation to add anything to make it more appealing!

    Pancreatitis...serious

    Try asking or taking her to the shelter where you got her. I would think that they would be familiar with her health, eating habits, etc.. Its at least worth the phone call, right? Best of luck with your Chug ... Hope all works out alright!!!

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.

    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!

    He looks like a German Rottie because of his snout, color and markings, but his hair is really long and he has brown on his ears. That would suggest a mix of something else... I think you need to wait until he gets older to see what characteristics come out from his parents. You're lucky to have him no matter his mix. Rotties are great dogs... I have one and he's the best! Congrats!

    There is no age that they start. Really depends on the dog.  He may not have found a reason to bark yet.

    Same problem with my 5 month rottie too
  • GT - 2014-07-26
    When he needs to protect you, bring your attention to something or feels a threat. That is the only time mine barks and he's 5! :o)

    You don't give it shots for heartworms. They need the heartworm chew tablets every year just like flea and tick medicine every year.
  • lisa - 2011-07-27
    Heartworm are prevented with either monthly pill or monthly topical application - there isn't a shot... If you are using the proper prescribed meds for heartworm then you or your Vet should of contacted it manufacture..

    You should have given him heartworm preventative.
  • Anonymous - 2012-03-16
    Heartguard is a toxic to them. Interceptor is what they take for prevention of heartworms.
  • Racelle LaMar - 2014-07-25
    Ivermectin at high doses can be toxic in breeds such as collies, that being said- it is dose dependent. The dose in Heartgard is well below the dose which will cause issues and is not a problem.

We got our Chion from our local hs a few years ago..on her form they stated she was untrainable and barked a lot...but two years later she is the sweetest dog I have ever had, she is sweet, loving, and she loves people. Ironically, she is attatched to both my fiancee and I. The only little quirk is that she is picky about food, but otherwise easy to train. Potty training was a little work, but she hasn't had an accident in a while. And she is the BIGGEST baby I have had. She loves attention and knows how to get our attention in varying creative ways. She is hands down the best dog I have ever had.

We just adopted a Mastiff/Great Dane mix.we did a 2 week trial time and he weighed 92 pounds and 2 weeks later he is 96 pounds.He is only a year and a half old. He has a couple things we need to work on like barking and protecting us from those mean killer bunnies and squirrels in our back yard. He chases them with me attached! He is a wonderful addition to our family.

Can a male dog get aggressive???

    Yes, an unneutered male can become aggressive and hard to manage. They usually require a very experienced dog owner who can maintain discipline. Neutering males helps to reduce aggression from developing.
