    Hi guys, I'm writing this to share the story of Dexter, my now 3 month golden retriever mix, and also about my experience with a reprehensible, unethical breeder. note (before reading): I live in Indonesia, and people here have very different attitudes regarding dogs than in the states. So if...

    I've been told not to take my 8-9 week old puppy for walks where other dogs frequent. I'm wondering about socialising our puppy in our home with another dog we know that's up to date on her vaccines. My question is can a dog that's had all her vaccines still be a carrier of the parvovirus? I...

    My Honeybee is 8 months old, she is a Short/Long Hair Chihuahua mix and weighs about 7-8 lbs. I am going to tell a long story here, but necessary. On this last Thursday, later in the afternoon she would not take her treat, and she LOVES her treat. I just thought maybe her tummy is upset...

    Okay, here are my basic questions: 1. What precautions do you take when taking your puppy for a walk? 2. What precautions do you take when having people coming over to meet puppy? 3. Can you still have your puppy socialize with people and other dogs without worrying too much about parvo? 4...

    Hi everyone, I wonder if you guys can help me figure out what's best for our puppy. Our puppy is around 3~4 months old right now, and we've adopted him from a shelter a month ago. Before that, he got parvo but survived through it, that he was very thin and was recovering from it when he came...
