    General Dog Forum
    So recently my family and I have been searching for family dogs and we decided we wanted two puppies. I've owned a GSD mix and a Lab as a child but it has been so long I'm afraid my judgement for suitable breeds may be rusty. We looked at a litter of Belgian Malinois puppies today and we were...

    Hey, everyone! So me and my boyfriend have stumbled upon a very young pit bull mix puppy. My boyfriend works for the apartments, and sadly someone moved out and locked this poor puppy in their room! Not wanting to see her go to the pound, we decided to take her in.

    We're thinking about adopting a dog soon because we haven't actually owned a dog in a little while, just fostering. Our last foster was a senior dog (very old) who had to get put down because of the pain he was in. We want to look into spaniels, we're more than likely adopting one from a...

    This article might really help you. I found it at 11 pm on my puppy's third day home. I wasn't thinking of returning him, but did feel like the world's biggest idiot for thinking I can do this. The e-book is good too.

    First post for a first time dog owner. While I'm a novice owner, my dad trained competition dogs as a hobby while I was growing up, so I'm not completely ignorant to the ways of training a good & confident dog. I adopted Trinity, a mostly boxer & I think some pit mix from a local rescue on...
