  1. Greyhound chasing smaller animals

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two dogs, not teeny tiny in size or spirit at all but small enough to not be classed as big! I will be taking in a greyhound in a week or so (very excited), and I have read numerous times in my preparation for her that greyhounds very often come with a warning of "they live to chase...
  2. Hello!

    Attention All New Members
    I am my Pomeranian's person, hence my user name. :). My rescue pom had her first teeth cleaning/extraction yesterday and woke up wheezing, so of course I turned to the internet and found this site. She is fine, now, but I always enjoy animal forums, so many interesting stories and helpful...
  3. luxating patella: great/cheap supplement, other therapies, scientific review

    Dog Health Questions

  6. Is my dog too small to breed?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have done some research online and I have found mixed answers. I have an adorable yorkie/teacup poodle mix, Lola, she will be three years old this July and weighs about five pounds. I have been thinking about breeding her, but I am afraid for her safety. I couldn't live with myself if anything...
  7. Neutering a dog with a retained testicle

    Dog Health Questions
    One our dogs, Taz, has a retained testicle. He's 10 months old now and I don't think it's going to descend anytime soon. We plan on getting Kodi and Gizmo neutered in February but we are a little hesitant about getting Taz fixed. You can visibly see the outline and feel the retained testicle on...
