My Yorkie, has been constipated lately. Today I noticed some blood in the stool. Is this serious?

    When my yorkie had this problem the vet said the glands in his anus is plugged up and if they don't get cleaned it will just stop again. If you have yours groomed your groomer should do this as part of the grooming! Hope this will help you with your problem.

I could use some help with an emerging problem with my 9 month old blue heeler mix. Scrabbles is a rescue dog I have had for 4 months. She was fearful of everything when I first got her, especially men. Once she learned to return to me when called, I began to take her to the park every day and let her run about or chase a ball for about an hour. She is great with dogs and is growing increasingly comfortable with people, letting them pet her on occasion without pulling away. Kids have been at the park before but she usually avoids them or barks once or twice then goes the opposite
direction. Recently she has been getting more vocal with the barking and I
usually call her away to another part of the park. Then one day, shortly
after I let her off the leash, she suddenly began chasing a little boy,
circling him, and barking ferociously. I gather from the circling that she
was attempting to herd him but it was uncomfortably aggressive and she
attempted to nip him when she was close. The boy, thankfully, was
remarkably calm. I eventually leashed Scrabbles and he offered to walk her so I let him walk next to me while I walked her. Scrabbles seemed ok but after a couple of minutes stopped walking straight ahead and headed toward the boy again and not in a friendly way. So I just took her home. What can we do to reverse this emerging pattern of behavior, especially if I don't have or know kids who can interact with her? Is her behavior leading to biting a child?

I have a 10 year old white male - for the last 48 hours - he won't eat, will try to drink water but throws up. Can still urinate but he's getting a little weak. This happens at least once a year. We got him from the rescue. Is there anything I can do?

Hi, I'm sorry about your dog. I adopted my Chugs @ the Humane Society. JZ is tan. Lyzy is blk/wht. They both very energetic, playful,& cute. When I got them they were 2 mos. old. Now, they're 8 mos. old. They're stubborn @ time but patience also helps. I learned how to train them from the internet. I let them play in the back yard and walk them almost every day. It's fun to watch them play with each other, hide 'n' seek, chasing the ball or toy... I think you can check it out @ the Humane Society in your area.

I have a Chion that was rescued from a Puppy mill when he was 2 years old. He was kept in a cage all his life. He is a lovely and affectionate dog despite all the problems caused by these terrible people.

Be warned...these dogs do bark at lot. They are very protective. And PLEASE make sure you are not supporting a puppy mill when you purchase your dogs. This breed can be found at shelters and rescues around the world!.

    I also rescue a Chion from a shelter, and she is very lovable four months puppy. We feel very luck in adopting her. Until now she doesn't bark a lot, but is very active.

    Just rescued a Chion and he is very, very shy. Not with me anymore...I took 2 whole days to bond with him. It's only been 3 days now and already he's let my OLDER children pet him. Yes, he barks...but not continuously and is a real sweetheart and snuggler. I think this is a wonderful breed! And I adopted him! Didn't buy him! There are alot of these wonderful little dogs out there that need homes.

Basset hounds are the best dogs! I have always had a basset and will never want another breed.

    I have adopted a lovely new member into our family named Meatloaf! I have changed his food from Beneful to Wellness whitefish and potatoes which he loves. My dilemma is that he produces too much oil and has a yeast smell. What do you normally feed your hounds? I would like to get an idea of what works well for oily skin and a healthy diet.

    Arlie,

    I don't exactly know when you posted this question, but I recently bought a chinese crested powder puff "black and white" colors may vary. But I bought him from a breeder named Sheri she can be reached at. ( 714) 916-1663. Our boy that we bought from her is healthy and loving you can rest assure that when you buy from Sheri we will stay stay in contact with you for whatever you may need.

    She has another litter coming in a couple months.

    Sheri

    Ps. Yes we have the same name!

    Go to google and type in"where to find a chinese crested puppies (or dogs). Make sure your breeder can be trusted by a parent. Then pick the picture (if they have pics.) of one that looks like the one on the front page. That's what I did when I got my puppie. Hope you get a puppie that you want.

I would like to bring to your attention that avacados are poisonous to dogs. I read so in the petfinder.com Adopted Dog Bible. I have seen that also on many other websites. Please remove the section where it says that they are ok, as you may be causing people's pets to fall ill.

    Thanks KC for your good suggestion, and the info has been corrected on the page!

    I beg to differ with you regardless of the source. I have a five acre avocado ranch and my dogs as well as neighborhood dogs eat fallen avocados on a regular basis with no ill effects with the exception of a little weight gain if I let them eat too many. Now if I could just get them to pick them and put them in the bins, I'd be all set!

    I love my dog and avocados. My italian greyhound is my first dog. He is not allergic to avocados, and actually enjoys them.

I have a six month old male long haired Chihuahua, Bryce. I have no idea how people can say the breed is mean. He loves everyone and even stays out of the cat's way. ( to her the dog is a pest) but he is so sweet. Don't listen to the stereotype. He's an angel.

    I also have a male long haired chihuahua, age 2. He's nothing but sweet. He's scared of everybody, so I agree with you, not all chihuahuas are mean.
