Hi everyone,,, I have a 6mnth old Bully. His name is Fritzie,,,recently fixed. He is very dominant. Which is to be expected. As in most of the comments I've read about Bully's he jumps on me to enforce his will. When I ignore him or turn and try to walk away, he starts nipping me everywhere. On my anckles, calves and arms. He then gets in front of me and jumps up bitting my t-shirt or shorts ( I call it my Bully outfit).Positively I can say he is intelligent and like to be challenged mentaly. I gave him a ice cream tub in which I taught him to put is small toys in, which he then carry in his mouth ect. He learned to sit in under an hour, and now do so without a verbal command. I only need to show him with my hand. He sprints avoer our lawn when I throw his ball, and when he gets to me he slows down so that I can hold him on is back from behind and then I must run with him, toy in his mouth. At night he 'asks' to go into his crate when he wants to gomto sleep (awesomeness) Did I mention that he is OH SO CUTE! I've learned to wait for the appropriate opportunity to give him any affection. HOW CAN I STOP HIM FROM NIPPING ME IN ORDER TO BE CONSISTENT WITH MY DISIPLINE! !!! I have a 11 year old daughter, ,,, she is also very much in love with him as I am. At the moment I am the only one who's brave enough to face him.

    He sounds like an adorable puppy, but yes, you do have a problem. From what I've read, you don't want to allow your puppy to get away with biting and nipping because if you do, he may develop behavioural problems later in life.

    Training that I've read suggests that you treat the nipping the same way his mother would; yelp loudly and then say 'NO' in a firm, disapproving tone. This lets your puppy know that he's hurting you. It's okay to over-react and sound a little more hurt than you actually are, as this helps him under stand that his bite hurts and that biting humans is wrong. Then turn away from him, ignore him for about 60 seconds, and then play with him a bit. YOu can give him a rubber bone or toy to chew on so he learns that its okay to chew on it, just not on you or other people.

I just got a 6 week pug/chi, I am not sure how much to feed her and how often. She is so tiny I just want to hold her all the time. How often she I feed her at this age ?

    Small breeds like chug puppies should be fed 3 times a day. Usually offer about a cup of puppy small breed food for each feeding (good ones are Eukanueba, Iams, and Hills Science Diet), but be sure to read and follow the suggestions on the bag for her weight. Also if she is built more like a Chihuahua rather than a pug, you may want to give her slightly less at each feeding to avoid weight problemes.

    I have an adorable male fawn colored chihuahua ( Caesar) with a great personality that I would like to breed. Is Daisy really friendly and calm? Caesar weighs 12 lbs. and since Lilly is smaller that would be perfect. I would like to keep one or 2 of the puppies and then we can talk about the others. Please call me. 312-543-0561.

We have a rescue pug. We love her so much, she is the sweetest thing. We have had her about four years. When i leave or she does not see me she will start hollering. Everyone thinks shes saying mama cause it does sound like that. I would very much recommend rescuing one. You would not be disappointed.

    Just got my first pug and she is everything you described. Very playful and demands attention which I don't mind. I have fallen in love with her. I have always had big dogs but she may be small yet she is very big. She (BOO) is 4 years old but still has all the puppy spunk. And she has already shown her devotion and abundant love. Thanks BILL

I live outside of Fort Worth. I have  chorkies, one a year old and three 2 years old. The older ones both parents were registered but I did not register them because I couldn't find papers on the dad. Mom was a blue deer leg chihuahua-very rare in color, dad was silver and black yorkie. I need to find homes for them because I now have too many. The younger one was sired by one of my males and is very unusual looking...he somehow came out with blue eyes.

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!
