    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...

    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...
  5. 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...
  6. Dog Health
    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?

He came to a San Francisco Bay area clinic to be euthanized (which 2 vets said was not indicated) last month, skinny and starving, with a serious bilateral ear infection, a...
  8. General Dog Discussion
    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 everyone, I wanted to share the book we wrote. We did this to celebrate that a new little member is joining our family soon and to celebrate the senior dog that has made us so happy for so long. Gracie to the rescue! narrates the story of Gracie. A real dog we adopted when she was 8...

    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...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Sorry this is so long! I am new to the forum here and looking for advice related to one of our dogs exhibiting what seems to be selective aggression when off leash. Here is the background: We adopted a rescue dog 2 years ago (neutered male, mixed breed, 25 lbs, approx 8 yrs old). Then 6 months...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a medium sized Border Collie mix from a shelter 3 years ago. He was very depressed and showed signs of having been abused. He grew to love and trust us but still - after 3 years - is aggressive towards almost all dogs and will occasionally just randomly snap at people. I just came...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    I just rescued 8 month old german shepherd/mastiff, Lola from the humane society. She is beyond sweet but a little nervous. My roommate rescued a 4 month old hound mix. Both are relatively well behaved individually but they both are starting training. My problem is when they are together. They...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I rescued our sweet pitbull/sharpei mix, Daisy, 2 years ago at roughly the age of 5. It wasn't until long into having her as a part of our family that we noticed she would randomly have anxiety attacks where she would come to us shaking and panting, sometimes trying to find a...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is a Pitbull/Great Dane rescue who was beaten, mistreated, malnourished until he was 5 months old and abandoned in the woods. He is 1 yr and 9 mo. now and the majority of the trauma and damage has been undone by me. But one thing I can't get past is how he interacts with people outside...

    Hi~ Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I rescued a dog from a reputable small breed rescue that I have adopted from before. However, this particular dog came right from his bad home situation almost directly to me with a brief stop for 48 hours with a foster to be neutered and...
  18. Dog Breeds
    We adopted Sebastian in June and he’s been the perfect addition to our lives. He’s very calm and sometimes we forget he’s still just a puppy. He’s a very fast learner, eager to please, and a great listener. He loves being outside, even in very cold weather. Right now he’s 42 pounds. We are...

    My girlfriend and I recently (about two months ago) adopted a female 2-year old Australian Cattle Dog/Boston Terrier mix from a local rescue group. So far she is super great and came mostly potty trained with the exception of one location in the apartment. We live in a 1 bedroom apartment and...
