    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I recently got Theory, a pitbull/husky mix, a little over six weeks. I've read that it's normal but I can't help but worry. In his sleep, he twitches, shakes, and looks like he has hiccups. Sometimes it's more subtle, but other times it's really powerful and is reminiscent of a seizure or...

  14. Help with sleeping?

    General Dog Forum
    Good Morning all, I was hoping to get some advice about Izzy. When I adopted her the owners told me she was a black lab. She looked lab-ish to me, and as I was adopting her from a home that was moving and couldn't take her, I didn't pay anything for her, and didn't want to do competitions or...
