  1. First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hello, So I am currently looking at dogs to adopt and I came upon this one dog who I am absolutely in love with. Sadly, this dog needed to have one of his eyes removed but, the information for the dog said he was still acting like any other dog with no problems adjusting. This is all great...

    So a week ago me and my other half adopted a dog, Alsatian cross border collie. He was such a loving dog and was reasonably well trained although it was clear to us quite quickly that he was obviously miss treated in his previous home. The shelter where we got him from had only had him for 2...

    My boyfriend and I got a dog 3 weeks ago from an old coworker of mine who could no longer care for the dog for personal reasons. She was a bit bigger than we were really looking for (50 lbs rather than 20-30lbs) but she seemed great according to the owner so we figure it was meant to be. Now I...

The shelter is prepared to have us adopt her immediately if she a fit for us. Ordinarily this would not be an issue but we have a family trip coming up 2 weeks after the day we...

    Hello everyone, Any suggestions / discussion about how tall I can expect this little guy to become? I think about adopting him, but am quite insecure about his size. He is said to be 4 months old, when that picture was uploaded mid october. Thanks!

    So, I realize this is an intensely personal question and only my husband and myself can make the best decision we can for us, but I could really use some advice or stories or anything helpful regarding adopting a new dog after yours dies. Sebastian, the dog my husband and I adopted when we...

    Hello everyone, I recently adopted a rescue dog (10 days ago) named Hazel. She is around 2 years old, incredibly sweet, house-trained and never barks. Eats and drinks fairly normally. Ideal for someone living in a townhome like myself. However, she also is incredibly timid. She has two spots...

    Hello, This is my first time posting in a dog forum, as this is my first time being a full-fledged doggy mom. We adopted our 8 week old Corgi mix three days ago. This is a whole new experience for me (no kids before this). :wave:
  9. General Dog Forum
    I am thinking about adopting a dog and found one that I think would fit well in my household. I am 20 years old, and I looked all over the website but could not find any age restrictions. Do most shelters have an unwritten age, or is 20 old enough? In addition, the application asks if I have a...

    Hi all, I recently filled out an adoption application for a dog who has had distemper and has a small tick. She is a 2 year old dachshund mix weighing 10 lbs. She had 8 puppies but they all passed away after catching distemper. She survived but now she has a tick due to the neurological damage...

    Hi all - My beloved cat, Onyx, (1/2 Maine **** & 1/2 Ragdoll) went over to the Rainbow Bridge last year. Onyx was my furbaby through and through. We were inseparable. I brought home a new kitten, full Maine ****, a few months ago, hoping to find a similar love bug. However, although she is...

    So I want to get a German Shepherd puppy. I'll tell you about my current conditions and you tell me whether they're okay for the dog or not. Here's my problems: 1- My parents don't want one and they hate pets, for some nonsense religious reasons. 2- I can't let it live with me in our house...

    Hello! I adopted Olli about a month ago. Olli is a 10 year old beagle/chihuahua mix. From what I'm told, he was recently turned into a shelter because his family couldn't take care of him anymore. When we are together, I never hear a peep from him. Maybe some mild crying, but nothing...

    My husband and I recently moved into a new house along with our 1.5 year-old female Italian Greyhound, Minnie. We decided to adopt a friend for Minnie, something we had been discussing for about 6 months. Approximately a week and a half ago, our new baby, Bugsy came to live with us. He is an...

    Ok forum folks, I would greatly appreciate some solid, no-holds barred opinions! I have always had the belief that puppy is a safer way to start to ensure good foundations regarding training and temperament for my family. However I am constantly hearing otherwise. Barring political correctness...
