Oh my heavens....I cannot believe the vaccines recommended....the vet org has finally said they're only needed every 3 years and the rabies vax has always been every 3 years! AND they ALL cause massive problems from skin issues right on up to cancer. http://truthaboutvaccines.org/

    I have heard that as well. However, if you ask the doggie daycare up the street from me you will hear a VERY different story! I don't allow my dog near other dogs all that often and think these really small breeds are vulnerable to toxicity issues but that hardly makes a dent in the minds of the people who run the daycare/boarding facility. It leaves me in a pinch whenever I need to find a safe place to put "puppy" up at the last minute.

My dog is 11yo - I got him as a rescue at 7yo. He bit someone recently with no provocation and he has always been very nervous. I was told by the rescue foundation that he was definitely not a pitbull (the concern was over how he may have been raised as I had no control over his first 7 years) and other than being twitchy he hasn't been a problem in the past. I believe now that he is in fact a red-nosed pit bull so would like any breed-specific suggestions you could give? I am considering muzzling in public - I certainly don't want this to happen again and the no provocation thing scares me more than a little. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Right and I am so glad you are conscientious enough to realize it can happen again. I am not a trainer - I am a dog lover and a bird fanatic - can you tell? I would muzzle the pup in public. Can't know what happen, I have a bird friend that absolutely will attack anyone with red hair. No provacation. Why take the chance?

I got my english bull terrier about 3 months ago, his coat was in good condition but he has gone very flakey with a few scabby lumps, he also has terrible wind is this normal? I spoke to 1 person and they said theirs was the same, what is the best food to give them?

    My bull terrier had flaky coat and scabby lumps. I took her to the vet and it was a thyroid condition. Two pills a day for the rest of her life but it cleared up her skin and coat within a month.

We found a long-haired chihuahua in our barn in May. It took about 2-3 weeks before she let us touch her. Once we could hold her I immediately took her to the vet. She is about 3 yrs old. She is very shy around other people but is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever seen and beautiful. All of that said, we have another chihuahua that we've had 5 yrs that we got when she was 6 wks. old and is very friendly and out going and has even grown to love our grandchildren. Will our newest member of the family grow out of her some of her shyness eventually? We go camping a lot and take our dogs. I would love to see her be a little friendlier with people. Must admit though she is a good watch dog. We love our babies.

    Chihuahua's are sometimes timid - yep we know that. We don't know what went on with this one before she was found by you and so we can understand why she would be more shy or afraid of other people. I would think the more she is socialized and out and sees other people and is around your other little one, the less timid she would be. They are sweet pups and I would think she would grow out of some of her shyness, especially seeing the behavior of your other one. Good luck with them both.

I have a red heeler/husky mix. He's a little over a year. But He is a great dog to have. Before getting him when he was 3 months old I was so scared of dogs. But he's like my best friend now. He follows me around all day, and when I give my kids or my husband hugs he's right there trying to get a hug or rub to (it's so funny). But he loves to chew bones and his toys (I got him a new toy the other day and he destroyed it within 5 hours. My husband walks/runs him in the morning and I walk him in the evenings. He likes to play fetch on the stairs ( I throw his toy over the top of the stairs and he runs down and brings it back, he does it like 10-15 times before he gets tired). He loves people and thinks that when we have company they are supposed to rub and love him too.

    My compliments to you for getting a pup when you were afraid of dogs. So many are afraid of things and don't ever get the enjoyment because of fear. You overcame yours. Hats off to you

I have a chug that will be 3 n october, his name is jack. He is the light of our lives! However he does have quite a temper at times! Is this common in chugs? Just curious if this is common.

    I have 2 chugs that just turned 3 in July, a boy, and a girl. My Barney, goes crazy every time someone comes to the front door. It's as though, he's a completely different dog. His temper changes and he growls, barks, and won't let you come near him until he sees who it is, then he calms down. But as far as temper towards us and our friends, he's a sweet heart, and has never turned on me.

I want to buy a pomeranian but I'm not sure that it would be happy in a hot climate (Turkey)

I had a westie growing up. She was THE BEST dog ever! She was very loving and had such a personality! And though we didn't have cats when she grew up she had no problem in her later years when we did get one. I miss her dearly she lived until she was 17.

    They are good pups. Very intelligent, even tempered, not barkers, affectionate.

I have had pit bulls in the past, and still own two now. They are the epitome of what a dog should be. I encourage anyone that is interested in a dog that is loyal, energetic, and a good protection and family dog to get one.

    I think pitt bulls need and want very consistent and caring humans. They want to be with their humans but their humans need to teach them. They are energetic and full of vigor and strong and they need a human that is very consistent in expectations, training and loving. I think they got a bad rap (just like the dobie) but they need attention and care.
