    Dog Breeds
    We have a four year old Jack Russell mix. He’s 45 lbs and we cannot figure out what he is mixed with. We always assumed maybe a mix of terriers and he does have a tendency to curl his paw and point when he sees an animal in a tree. I saw a rat terrier today and was surprised at how much they...

I feel this would be great because if you have a problem that another person who has the same dog as you then you can talk to them on it. Anyone else like this area? Feel...
