  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted our dog Rosie last year after a relative found her running loose in a local cemetery. No one ever reported her missing or claimed her when she was reported found. She is assumed to be a JRT/ Chihuahua mix. We believe her to be an escapee from a local hoarding situation that was...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello! A couple months ago I rescued a Jindo mix (we adopted her through an organization that had saved her from a Korean meat farm). We think she’s mixed with a spitz, because even though she has the face of a jindo, she is very small. Smaller than our Alaskan Klee Kai. She is our first rescue...
  3. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all, I just adopted a five year old golden who had previously been in a hoarding situation. The dog is understandably extremely anxious, but has not shown any signs of aggression and is very quiet, I have had her for a week and the most noise she has made is whining. Obviously she isn’t...

    Hi, I was fostering to adopt-a-dog and in the process of getting to know her, I found that she had some behavior issues that I don't feel experienced enough to handle. I have contacted the rescue with this information and told her I can no longer foster. When I told her about the behavior issues...

    Hey Guys! I'm so happy to be a part of this forum with fellow dog lovers 😁 I have a 10 year old Shih Tzu and a 1 year old rescue dog from Bali. My sweet Bali rescue dog was very scared and confused when I first got her home. I gave her a routine, lots of love and tried to gain her trust - And...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, my 1 yr old, rescue boxer is easily distracted on her walks. I've watched the recommended videos, such ad Kikopup we practice indoors before going outdoors etc. She does great for parts of her walk, the rest is downhill. She is easily distracted and when she does fixate on something it is...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, this will be a longer post so here os the quick TL;DR version: rescue dog with unknown past is often afraid while on walks. I'm looking for advice on how to help her overcome some of her anxiety and enjoy herself. The longer version: she is not a puppy, but as mentioned, a rescue dog we...
  8. New Dogs and Puppies
    I adopted a gorgeous 1 yr old boxer / pit mix recently. She is great indoors, house trained and mellow. Whoever owned before must have kept her in a box because she is a different dog outside. Everything stimulates her. She pulls on her leash and her walks are feeling like a chore. Additionally...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I've had Gretta (Pointer Mix?) for 5 months and recently she has started barking at me if I say No to something or scold her. It is different from random barking because she looks right at me and it feels like a demand or sass-back. Otherwise she is a very quiet dog. Her only barks are at me...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Approximatly two years ago I rescued a 9 month old "american bulldog." Named Jade. breed is questionable, that's just what her paperwork says. She looks like a little pocket pit. When I brought her home, she was afraid of everything. EVERYTHING!. I couldn't even get her to go outside without...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone! I’m looking for some advice or other experiences about their rescues and getting territorial. My catahoula mix is 2 years old and I’ve had her for about 10 months now. She’s been absolutely amazing and all around has been a model dog. We have moved 3 times in the last 10 months and...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    So I rescued an 8 year old cattle dog/pitbull mix not too long ago. He’s an absolute sweetheart, until there’s another dog around. I was misled by the rescue agency about how badly he reacts to other dogs and how unsocialized he is. Whenever he’s able to see another dog he loses his mind; if...

    My boyfriend and I have just adopted a 2-year old Dachshund. He has spent his entire life thus far in a breeding kennel, and is very distrusting of humans. Day 1- we let him stay in his carrier with the door open so he could come out of the carrier as he pleased. We provided positive...

    Hey Guys!!!! I recently adopted my 9month old mixed staffy from RSPCA, the documents say she is mixed and I think she is too, however, I’m not too sure what shes mixed with. I was hoping someone may have an idea or a suggestion :) She is extremely active, energetic, affectionate, cheeky and...

    I have a 9 month old female blood hound I rescued. She had no human contact before I got her- except food water put into outside pen. She is starting to sleep with me and gets protective over me especially if I am eating. No other animal Can come near me. I also noticed she watches my kitten...

    I haven't been around for a long, long time. My previous BFF dog, Cobber, just passed a couple months ago at age 7 from very aggressive cancer. I am still devastated by that loss and continue to cry every day because my heart is so broken, although not all day like in the beginning. Anyway, to...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, This is my first time I’ve ever tried posting to one of these sites. My girlfriend and I have recently adopted an 8 month old Jindo from Korea. We have had him for a month so far, and he is well behaved for the most part, but a couple of weeks ago we ran into the problem of him not...

    I just adopted this very sweet 3 month old mini schnauzer that was supposed to be euthanized for being born with congenital blindness. After looking more into it, I was wondering if she had the Merle gene? Does anyone know if this is what she has by looking at these pictures?

    I know a lot of people won't read this and, if they do, they probably won't think much of it. That's okay. I just decided to put this up here for fun. Almost five years ago I was volunteering at my local animal shelter. While I was there, they got in a little puppy. I didn't think much of her...

    Hello :D My name is Edgar, we have a little yorkiepoo named Gracie who we adopted when she was 8. She is hilarious, hard-headed, and wicked smart. We love hanging out and throwing the ball. My wife and I decided to write a children's book about Gracie and her rescue story as a celebration of...
