  1. Introductions
    Hello! My name's Joy, I'm a young adult and I live with my husband and two dogs. Our first dog, Sky, we got from a shelter as my husband and I always wanted a husky since we were very young. He's a husky/Shepherd mix and we love him to death. Our other dog was hanging out on the property and we...
  2. General Dog Discussion
    My hubby and I rescued a 10 y.o. Boston Terrier a few months ago (her elderly owner apparently had gone into a home for Alzheimers). She seemed on her last leg and stressed out at one of the better area shelters (the manager kept her in her office because the kennel was too stressful). We...

    About a week ago I got an overseas rescue dog - after several years thinking about getting a dog and doing research. While it's not a decision I took lightly, in the past week I've suffered from severe anxiety. The dog has some behavioural issues, including intense separation anxiety and...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi All, I'm hoping someone can help. 4 months ago, we adopted a little cavalier spaniel mix from a rescue group. We were told she was potty trained, and didn't have problems with other pets. However, she won't stop peeing in the house and growling at our other dog. We have taken her to the...
  5. Dog Breeds
    Hi everyone. I'm new here and this is the most active forum I've run into. We recently rescued a 1.5 year old dog. She has proven herself to be a very good escape artist, very Houdini. We have a wire crate for her for when he leave for at least an hour because she is very destructive right...

    Hello all, I am new to the forum! My name is Sarah. My husband and I have just adopted an 18-month old beagle/terrier mix from a local rescue. They told us he was found on the streets in West Virginia and was brought up to Connecticut by rescue volunteers. He has been at the shelter for a...
  7. General Dog Discussion
    Hey guys! So I'm new here, and that is because last night I adopted a German Shepard mix from my local animal shelter and in her file, it says she is a former emotional support dog. I named her Emma Bob, Emma for short. She is 1.3 years old. I was basically just asking for any advice you guys...
  8. Introductions
    Hi all! I just thought I would give a little introduction about me and my little pack of hooligans. I'm new to rescuing, I grew up with Golden Retrievers but my family never rescued. It wasn't until a little over a year ago my boyfriend and I decided that we wanted a dog and we thought there was...

    About 2 months ago now my husband and I adopted two rescue dogs. Baby (4) and Ox (1). They are mother and son. I had dogs as a kid but not in my adult life. I'm new to the board and just wanted to say Hi. I'm trying to connect with others that have adopted adult dogs and maybe compare stories...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    I currently have a 17 pound terrier mix (looks like a rat or smooth fox terrier) he is around 7 years old and has been fine with other dogs. We decided to get another rescue dog. The dog is a retriever/collie mix who is 45 pounds. We got a girl because we've heard boy and girl pairs work best...
  11. Dog Health
    I am new to this forum but certainly will be sticking around! I foster dogs for a local non-kill shelter and was referred to your forums by one of our board members - I am trying to help a dear friend of mine. I hope I am allowed to post this here. I read all of the guidelines and do not see...

  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    I recently adopted a dog who had been found running through the desert. She is a terrier, about 3 years old, and seems to be very well trained. She only goes potty twice a day, very regularly as long as she is on a walk. If I don't take her on a walk, she won't go potty. And she does not go...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    My current dog Peace, is rescued street dog from Russia and she is also my second ex-street dog. Both of my dogs suffered from various problems as rescue dogs tend to suffer from separation anxiety and many other behavior problems. Fortunately in most cases they are treatable. I got Peace when...

    Hi, everyone. I need help with my two six-week old pitbull puppies. I got them both a week ago from a rescue centre for abandoned dogs their mother had apparently stopped paying her puppies any attention (three of the litter of 9 died). Now the problem started when another dog with her own...

  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone! I just got my first dog as an adult after 4+ years of waiting (and reading every dog training book I could get my hand on, starting with The Other End of the Leash), and now I'm feeling a bit stressed and overwhelmed, mostly from my own expectations/perfectionist streak. My main...
