  1. Problems with small adult dog and big puppy getting along

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi guys! Hopefully you can help me with this problem.. I have a little Maltese mix called Moose that's about 6 years old that we adopted at the start of the year. He hadn't been well socialized and could be growly and snappy with other dogs, but since owning him he's settled down a lot and gets...
  2. Concerned about small bite on dog

    Dog Health Questions
    EDIT: Once measured, the punctures were actually about 1/5 of a cm apart, with the whole wound being about 2/5 cm to half a cm. Is this too small to be a bat bite? Also in hindsight maybe I should mention the dog used to have folliculitis, which may be coming back slightly, would that be able to...

    Dog Pictures Forum
    This is Luna. Father a Papillon and mother a Shih Tzu. She is 7 months old (these photos taken today) have had her since she was 8 weeks! I clip her fur and nails myself.

  4. "A big dog in a small dog's body"

    General Dog Forum
    I hear this expression a lot, and I have to say, I have absolutely no idea what people mean when they use it. What I do know is that the phrase implies that there is a fundamental difference between small dogs and big dogs, and that somehow big dogs are superior (or so it seems, as I have only...
  5. Small/toy breed dog food suggestions

    Dog Food Forum
    I have a nearly 5 lb pomeranian (9 months old.) He is currently on Wellness Super5 Mix Small Breed. I have no complaints, but I was wondering if there is anything you might suggest instead of Wellness. I would like the food to be geared toward small or toy breed dogs. Brands I've been...
  6. Vet told us her guess, shelter told us their guess... what is your guess?

    General Dog Forum
    Hi everyone! So I adopted a puppy from a local shelter here a week ago. The shelter told us that they guessed he was a Black Lab/BC/Akita mutt mix and that he'd be about 70-80 pounds fully grown. I took him for his first vet visit etc. and I got a totally different guess from the vet. She...
  7. Small Old Blind Dog Loathes New Puppy

    General Dog Forum
    Hi everybody, So we had an 11 year old blind papillon dachshund mix that was pretty content with life. We got a new puppy and since day one she has had a chip on her shoulder for him. It wasn't too bad in the beginning and she would only growl like a wild badger if he walked into her. Now she...
  8. Lulu- a little Papillion with a *BIG* jump.

    General Dog Forum
    ignore Closing it, don't think I can just delete the thread though. If I knew how I would. I don't jump her this high that often, she's a young athletic dog and can handle a few bigger fences. If she wasn't willingly jumping then I wouldn't have put the fences that high in the first place...
  9. Large breeds vs. small breeds. Can they coexist?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    My girlfriend and I are talking about what dog(s) we will get, down the road, after we start living together. She has only owned small breeds (ie Shitzu) and I have only owned large breeds (although I spend a good deal of time with her family's Shitzu). She has loved her small dogs and she does...

  11. How big will Fidget get?

    General Dog Forum
    Fidget is in her 15th week now and weighs almost 7 pounds. She seems to be gaining about a pound a week! LOL! And we are not over feeding her. :p The people we got her from said that she will reach 11 pounds but at this rate I doubt that. I bet she will be bigger! So, a 15 week 7lb puppy. How...

  14. Too much love?

    General Dog Forum
    Is it possible to show too much love for your dog? Will it affect their behaviour in the long run? I have a little Chihuahua and being so small, it is easy to carry him around and baby him. I want him to get some independence but he is not even a year old and just so darn cute. People are...
