And you guys know what? I owned a Aussie Shepherd that I got from my local shelter and when he got to be about 1 and a half he bit a 3 year old and 2 months later he bit a 12 year old and had to be put down! Oreo isn't my first pit and the first one never bit either! So can someone please explain to me why they are so evil?

    there is this really big full grown pit bull walking in the streets, i approach it and its super friendly. i see it looks very old and is very starving. i take him inside then give him some left over steak and let him sleep on my couch. should i keep him he obviously isn't owned since he has no collar and i could easily afford to get him toys food and a really good vet, problem is im on call for work 24/7 7 days a week, i might not see him as much as i want and im really glad i didn't get called for work while stitching him. also my partner has no idea that the dog is in the house to but they do like dogs. should i keep him he seems like a nice dog, though he looks old and may not live for too many years id gladly like to make his final days the best they can be. tommorow after work i either take him to the vet say hes my dog to get him properly treated (even though i did stop the bleeding, and did do a damn good stitch job) take him to a shelter or take him to the vet and keep him.he looks fine now that i fed him a big meal and gave him plenty of water

    I m still 16, so basically "a kid" and my parents won t take me seriously when I ask. I feel like I ve done everything, from getting good grades, cleaning up after myself, taking good care of my current pets (birds), and just generally being a good kid. But every time I ask, they always give me the same "it s going to become our dog" excuse. They keep telling me that I m going to get busy with friends, that I ll have school work, and that I ll get a boyfriend. The main reason I want a dog is because my friends don t really like me... I ve done my research about expenses, breeds, training et cetera, but my parents get impatient and I never get to the part where I explain anything. Most of the time, they ve just said no. I ve been patient and waited, but I just don t know how long I ll be able to go. I miss my other dog dearly, and I just want a second chance to really get things right and have a friend. I ve spent too many summer night researching and crying over a dog I might never get. I know I m making my parents seem like the bad guys, but I know they love me. It s just... There are so many good things about dogs that they ll never let me tell them about! No one has allergies, we have the money, and I ve reassured them an ungodly amount of times that I ll be the main caregiver. They re so set on their ways. Please help me, what else can I do to convince my parents to let me have my own dog? I feel like I ve done everything.

    Sessions has done a lot of good. But it is also clear that he no interest in going after the political criminals running the DC swamp. It is time to fire him and put in someone who will go after the Clintons.

    Best answer: Move as far rural as you practically can, more likely to allow dogs.
    Avoid apartment complexes, they are usually more restrictive in their policies.
    Try to find a house to rent, some landlords might be OK with any dogs.
    However if you live in a city which has a pitbull ban, you will need to move out of city limits - which doesn't need to be a big deal.
    If you are currently in treatment for depression and PTSD with a mental health provider your mental health provider can prescribe you your dog as an Emotional Support Dog. Which means as long as the dog is well behaved and doesn't cause problems due to his behavior most landlords cannot legally refuse to accept the dog - not even if there is a breed ban. There are some exceptions, but read up the fair housing act on this.

  • Help picking a dog breed?

    Best answer: First of all, I do not feel that it would be right to leave any dog home alone for seven hours at a time (i.e from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm). Dogs are pack animals. They are social animals. Dogs get anxious and upset if left home alone for long periods of time. They can also get separation anxiety. They can also become... show more
    Best answer: First of all, I do not feel that it would be right to leave any dog home alone for seven hours at a time (i.e from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm). Dogs are pack animals. They are social animals. Dogs get anxious and upset if left home alone for long periods of time. They can also get separation anxiety. They can also become bored and destructive when left alone for long periods of time, such as from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm.
    However, if there is someone else at home who is good with dogs and knows a lot about and is kind to them and responsible, the dog should be okay. It is advisable to ensure that the person is also capable of exercising the dog properly. If this is the case, please ask them politely to walk the dog and play with them (appropriate games only, don't play fetch with sticks and stones as you could hurt the dog and, due to concerns over it causing dominance issues, you may also want to stay clear of tug-of-war with your dog). If there are no other people would be able and willing to do this, and suitable for the job, please hire a professional dog-sitter, or consult the services of a good dog-walker. Alternatively, if you have any knowledgeable, dog-loving friends and/or family members who are kind, you could also ask them politely if they could dog-sit for you.
    Before you add any dog of any breed or type to your household, please make sure for 100% that you and your lifestyle, home and situation are suitable. You also need to make sure that any other people who live with you are okay with your having a dog. You also need to make sure that your new dog will live happily with any other companion animals that you may have. If you have animals like chickens, geese, turkeys, cattle, sheep, horses, goats, etc, you will also need to take them into account (geese and other birds may peck the dog, and the dog may chase them and/or other animals). Please complete this quiz/test and see your result. Please do not get a dog if the quiz/test does not think that it would be a good idea for you at the moment. http://dogtime.com/quiz/am-i-ready-for-a...
    As for the breed, I used a dog breed selector app called Perfect Dog. One of the excellent matches that came up based on some of your criteria that you mentioned in the question was the Lowchen. Lowchens are generally around 13 inches tall and come from Europe. The name "Lowchen" means "little lion" in German. These little dogs are seen in art pieces that date back as far as the 16th century. Lowchens like exercise but are not too demanding in that regard. They are known to generally be obedient, and can live well in smaller homes (but are, generally, not ideal for city apartments). They are fairly good with children, can be perhaps surprisingly assertive for a small dog and can live in climates that are mid-way between very cold and very warm (e.g. England and certain parts of the USA). Lowchens are also generally known to be somewhat sociable. With a Lowchen as a companion dog, you also have the benefit of having a dog that was actually bred originally to be a companion, as opposed to a Siberian husky, for instance, which were bred for work pulling sleds and as such are known to be very demanding when it comes to exercise and not suitable as a companion dog for people who want a sedate, relaxed companion that is happy to live in an urban home and setting and just go for a sedate 20-minute walk every day.
    Finally, please consider adopting a rescue dog. Rescue dogs are not always badly-behaved, aggressive or too damaged mentally to be successfully rehomed. http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/adop...
    Warning: This page contains information about dogs that are in danger of being killed by lethal injection or gas if not adopted within certain amounts of time (by certain dates). It also contains photos of said dogs, and dogs that have already been killed. It also may contain other images and/or information relating to animal cruelty. http://www.dogsindanger.com/

  • Why are my feet always cold?

    Best answer: Me too. Experts say it could be a circulation problem or maybe you are just prone to it. To warm them up, soak them in a bucket of warm-hot water for like 5 or so minutes, dry and quickly put on socks and suitable footwear. They'll feel nice and warm at least for awhile.

  • Neighbors have their dog on the lose. He's a big tall dog who likes chasing our truck tires everytime we leave. They are irresponsible.?

    Best answer: Call your local authorities to come pick him up. If you can talk to the owners, do, but you'll probably only get verbal. If people are that irresponsible with their animals, they are unlikely to listen to you.

  • What are YOUR thoughts on puppy mills?

    I think they're horrible, and often abusive to animals.

    I think they're horrible, and often abusive to animals. Canada hasn't banned puppy mills and I heard that our laws are less strict than the US about this, but I think we should ban it in all countries. They're a big factor to pet overpopulation. It's not fair to the person who are looking for a loving pet but instead their money is all gone due to a sick puppy. Also, their money will continue to support puppy mills, producing even more poor animals. Some people don't know about this, and people lie to uneducated people in order to get them to buy a pup. I'd find a good breeder or the shelter. People sometimes think that shelters ONLY have older dogs, which isn't true. A pregnant female can arrive at shelters and give birth, someone can abandon a puppy, animal rescues can take away a puppy, and strays can also be puppies. A reputable breeder can have the breed that's desired too.

    I am diagnosed with PTSD, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder and Depression (though I do not think I am depressed) I recently added my new puppy, Indie to my family in hopes that she would help me out as a service dog. She is just under 3 months old and I have trained her to sit, stay, come, lay down, shake, all the basics and will be working on Deep Pressure Therapy training in about a week. She has already been out in public a few times and has met other animals and many other people, she is comfortable with it and with a little more training I know she would be a perfect service dog for me. Would my Psychiatrist be able to help me make her a service dog? What can I do?

    I know a lot about dogs (I have been a dog lover since I was about five or six years old). However, with the exception of one puppy that my mother gave up, I haven't actually had a dog in my life. I will be a beginner. I have anxiety issues and would like a dog that would protect me, but the dog would need to be non-aggressive unless they had to be aggressive. I would like a dog that is calm and loyal. I also may be living in an area with kids, and would like to have other animals, including small animals (rats and, maybe, rabbits) and a cat. I would also want a dog that was at relatively easy to train. I am not very house-proud but, because of my tendency to be untidy and not bother cleaning up, I would need a dog that didn't shed masses of fur. Here are some breeds and types that I have on my list of favourite/"would consider" breeds and types: 1. Staffordshire bull terrier. 2. German Shepherd. 3. Golden retriever. 4. Greyhound/Lurcher. 5. Spanish greyhound (galgo). 6. Japanese Akita (I prefer the actual Japanese Akita Inus, as opposed to American Akitas). Nice answers only please. Thank you.
