  2. What breeds are in my dog?

    We've had Missy for about 9 years and always wondered as to her breed make-up. She's very beautiful and has an exotic-ness to her face. It's not a big deal what's in her mix, and we'll probably never know for sure unless we do a DNA test. It's all just kind of a curiosity and I was wondering...
  3. Fully pit or mixed? What kind of pit?

    General Dog Discussion
    So I work at a vet and we had this pit come in as a rescue. Wondering if you think it's full pit or is mixed with something else. If you do you think it's full pit, it would be awesome to know just what kind of pit it is. If you think it's mixed please let me know what breed you think it's mixed...

    Hi, Me and my boyfriend rescued a 1 year old pittie about a year ago and have struggled socializing him with other dogs. Kona (the pittie) is 2 years old now and cannot be around other dogs without severe anxiety. We worry about taking him to a dog park because he is aggressive meeting other...

    Hello everyone. I am seeking advice on crate training a 5 year old lab & pit mix. Belle is tied up in the garage or roaming the fenced in backyard all of her life, never allowed in the house.

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, this is my first post, and it's a doozy. First, I'd like to say my dog is wonderful. He's a totally black German Shepherd / Lab Mix, about 72 pounds, 16 months old and super playful. Let's call him Sam. I'd say Sam's about the most playful, nicest, and best socialized dog when it comes to...
  10. Best Guess

Our best guess is that he's now 8-8.5 months old and currently weighs 80lbs and is 24" at the withers...

    Dog Breeds
    I rescued a dog about a year ago, and I couldn't ask for a better dog. But I live in maryland and they recently declared pitbulls to be an inherently dangerous breed, which increased insurance prices and made it harder to rent. I think my dog is a plott hound/ boxer mix, but a lot of people...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog makes a lot of eye contact with me and I have heard/read mixed messages from people about what this should mean. I understand eye contact is usually -- if not always -- a sign of dominance, but my dog seems to make eye contact with me and other humans casually as a sort of attentiveness...
