    It’s not that rare. It happened over 30 times last year and it’s happened twice in 2016 already. And 3 of those times in 2015, it was an animal which had passed through the hands of a facility...

    Yes, I realize the jerk's behavior has probably been triggered by the other dog's increasing age/vulnerability. But it's not A=B; most dogs don't respond to an elderly housemate's frailty by trying...

    As to legitimacy, I think it comes down to 2 issues - how the animals you own live, and what kinds of dogs you create. The people whose dogs are living in filthy crates are the same as AKC breeders...

    Oh, hell no. I had a similar situation with a new adult dog who after 10 days settling into the house, sized up my elderly dog and went for her like Satan. If it was up to me, he'd have been sent...

    They are beautiful dogs which I rarely encounter, and which I give a wide berth to when I do. In the past, their owners, like the owners of most dangerous breeds, have had the sense and honesty to...

    A salve would make it worse. A hot spot is basically a wound and needs to be kept dry to heal. Keep the dogs separate until the hot spot dries up and heals.

    I feel for people who have doubts about spay/neuter; it's become one of those things you're not supposed to question. Yet it's not all cut and dried; there's a good possibility that spaying can...

    So, what's the latest trendy dog food?

    My dog is on a prescription diet and I'm not changing it at this stage, but I was just curious what the latest 'it' food was. I remember years ago Royal Canin was the Very food and then Taste of the...

    :) I love seeing the bigger dogs dressed up, as my collie mix has a wardrobe to outdoor a toy poodle's. Sadly, our atypical 70-degree weather is making it too hot for my dog to wear her reindeer...

    Shelters do test for temperament. The problem is when they test for temperament and then release dogs which should be euthanized. You see it all the time - 'rescue only' dogs who can't complete...

    Everyone who has anything to do with dogs or shelters knows that "Boxer" or "Bulldog" in a shelter dog's description means "Pit bull we're desperate to get off our hands because we have another 75 of...

    As someone who has gone through this for years with a large family - it all depends on the human hierarchy. I totally agree about the separate feeding, but unless you're #1 on the family totem pole,...

    Trigger stacking is what happens when multiple triggers come one after the other. Trigger stacking is bad. Trigger stacking causes disasters – no one trigger is enough but in combination….bad...

    And that shelter shut down its adoption program for a brief period to examine its protocols because they recognized, to their credit, that the attack was on them and they should have NEVER let that...

    Jingles to OP, you had a hard time losing one dog, getting another and then being confronted with the #1 worst issue in a dog, aggression, and making that decision to give him back - which in the...

    You seem to be overreacting to a situation not actually implied by either the OP or by my previous comment.

    There is a difference between your rather extreme view of this thread - wherein strangers run over to molest children, pets and purses - and the OP's scenario, where she's upset that children near an...

    You have to remember that the current prevailing attitudes about pets dates back only to around 2000. There was a totally different culture prior to that, and that culture was a billion times better...

    I'm not that keen on touching other people's dogs, particularly if it's over 25lbs. I mean, sure, if it's friendly and affectionate and a nice dog. But in general, no I don't go rushing over to pat...

    Why would you get mad if someone petted your dog without permission? A dog which is unsafe being approached by other people is the owner's problem. If your dog might bite or lunge or bark or...
