  1. Strange rashes.

    General Dog Forum
    So my Miniature Schnauzer started compulsively chewing on her leg a month ago. I couldn't find anything. Recently she started licking it compulsively and scratching it. Still, I couldn't find anything. This morning I noticed her leg was soaking. I figured she had been licking it all night so...
  2. Going to be a first time dog owner but need help on what to look for!!!

    I don't think your situation allows dogs at this point. I would recommend a Miniature Schnauzer, but they need training and socialization from the start and you're not home during the day so I don't know if it would work out.
  3. search and rescue

    Bloodhounds can pick up a old scent. There is a known case where a bloodhound found a dead family, 330 hours after they went missing. There is hope, though, but of course the chances decrease with every that passes.
  4. I might have bought a mix? Well damn.

    She is gorgeous indeed, and very active like I was hoping for. It still matters if she's Border Collie x Australian Shepherd so I can tell her breeder about it. If she's mixed then some of her siblings might be as well. I don't think she's mixed, though, after looking through her pedigree.

    I was going to get a Border Collie actually, was on a waiting list and all. She's the breeder of my beloved Border Collie and his granddaughter was supposed to be bred soon... but she passed away. So, she offered me a Australian Shepherd puppy and I could pick the puppy I wanted. I got to pick...

    Yeah, this one has a tail too. So do her parents, and most dogs her breeder owns. My friend said she looked a bit different because she has a light, feminine bone structure and a feminine head. I didn't even think about it since she's just a puppy and is still maturing. I guess she's just a...

    I thought so too. I got a bit concerned when my friend told me she wasn't sure because she has owned tricolour Australian Shepherds for ages and this puppy is my first one. One thing is for sure, she's a handful!

    Yes. I did. She's from a breeder. The dam and sire do very well in agility, herding and on shows. They are Australian Shepherds. ... The problem is... They breed Border Collies and Australian Shepherd. I'm not sure if I got a purebred dog, she doesn't look like a purebred Australian Shepherd...

  10. New Fashion Trend... Matching Pets.

    General Dog Forum
    I socialized them early and taught them how to be around small pets, but the white schnauzer does not get to be alone with them. The bunny is crated, but not in a bunny cage... he has two large dog kennels, he's two pounds so that's a lot of space. He gets to run around the house for four...
  11. New Fashion Trend... Matching Pets.

    General Dog Forum
    Aw, that's cute though! I have no matching pets... expect for the Degus, but they're the same breed so ah. So far, I have pepper and salt schnauzer, white schnauzer, brown degus, black/brown/white guinea pig, white/black/red guinea pig, chocolate harlequin rabbit... I'm not doing it right.

    General Dog Forum
    I totally understand your worries, but I think you should talk to the breeder. Maybe the one who bought the puppy had been waiting for a long time and was told to pick whatever puppy they liked. I don't know the full story, maybe this breeder was rude by doing what they did... maybe it was a...

    General Dog Forum
    If you haven't given an answer, the puppy is not yours. Breeders often sell the puppies to the first great home they can find.

    General Dog Forum
    I don't know if it's weird or not, it might be but it might also be normal. Maybe the dam and sire had every trait you look for in a dog and the puppies might have gotten the traits from them. Genetics, you see.
  15. AKK or Shiba Inu?

    General Dog Forum
    This is definitely a Shiba Inu. Not all Shibas are stocky, it depends on the lines.
