    Dog Rescue Forum
    HELP!!! We just adopted a 2 year old shih tzu named Scout. She is very loving and cuddles every chance she gets. I'm married with no kids in the house so it's my wife and I. Scout has become attached to me meaning she follows me around, chooses to sit with me and will wait for me to sit down so...
  2. Adopted a New Puppy - Worried she may not be a good fit

    General Dog Forum
    Sorry this will be kinda long, but I hope I can get some insight... My wife and I have two dogs, a 12yr old Puggle and a Boxer who just turned 1yr. The puggle was never really one to play (nor could she keep up if she wanted to) with the boxer. She was just diagnosed with arthritis and when...

    General Dog Forum
    My husband and I recently adopted a 17-month old wirehaired griffon. He came from another family who had taught him the basic commands along with some hunting training. He's very submissive and wants to please. Our 4-year old Kerry Blue has not taken kindly to a new boy in the house. He growls...
  9. Recently Adopted Dog Sleeps All The Time?

    Dog Rescue Forum
    Five days ago, my boyfriend and I adopted a 5 y/o Min Pin that we found in our local newspaper. After talking to the now former owner(who turned out to be a byb of chihuahuas [yes, it pissed me off to find that out] and they didn't want her because she wasn't a chihuahua), I decided to adopt her...
  10. Is it possible to train aggression out of a dog?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi there, long story coming. We live in an area where it seems people drop their unwanted pets. We have found a couple cats on our doorstep, but due to allergies couldn't keep them. Then we found a black chihuahua mix. He seemed to fit in well with our family, and the kids (7 of them) had...

    Dog Training Forum
    My husband and I just adopted Lily, a beautiful 2-year-old golden retriever mix from our local shelter. She's insanely sweet and calm--no jumping, no barking ever--but we are having major problems with her making escape attempts from the yard when we aren't looking. When we ARE there, she...
  13. Please suggest fun activities for the dog on the leash

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I just adopted an adult stray dog. Yes, I know, that's a pretty bad statement to put in in "First Time Dog Owner" forum, but well... The dog has very few problems at the moment. He doesn't know most basic commands, like sit or come. He pulls a leash, but only a bit. But on the other side, it...

    My boyfriend and I adopted a 2 year old Boston Terrier. She's a great little dog and she seems to have been trained somewhat in her previous life. The problem is... She is clearly trained to eliminate outside... She runs to the door after eating so we know she has to go. But we need to paper...
  16. My New Chihuahua mix won't eat or drink water

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have a newly adopted 2 year old chihuahua mix and he is very quiet and doesn't do much besides lay around. I'm fine with that, the only problem is that he doesn't eat or drink and I've had him for a WEEK. I'm really beginning to worry about his health, he'll eat table food every once in a...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I adopted a 1 year 4 month old lab/retriever. He has been amazing so far and we have a serious bond. Around the house he is an awesome and does everything I ask. He will come when I tell him to and he will stay when I tell him to. He loves me so much that he follows me were ever I go in the...

    General Dog Forum
    Hi all! I adopted my first mixed breed dog from a shelter in Southeast Ohio about three years ago, and I know that his mother was a Golden Retriever (she looked to be pretty close to full bred). But I don't know what else he is. His name is Tom, and he weighs about 100 lbs. I was thinking...
