    Am I crazy to consider this foster?

    In December I sent some update photos to the rescue that I adopted my girl Pixel from. Pixel was very fearful when we adopted her and we took her knowing that she may or may not improve from that....

    I'm happy to share! She was never fear aggressive. In the fight v flight battle -- flight is always her preferred option. She'll shrink away, keep distance, etc. If she's in an area that she feels...

    Thanks all!

    Should have mentioned -- her name is Pixel! With all her dots we joked that she looked like a pixelated picture/video (especially when trotting around). My SO is a tech guy, so he...

    A brag/update on my rescue gal!

    So if you recall my previous post, we recently adopted a medium sized female mixed breed who was picked up with her littermates off the streets as a young pup. she was a bit people-fearful and had...

    I have had two mixed breed adopted dogs and both have made fabulous running partners. One was a terrier x of some sort (we jokingly called her a miniature irish wolf-lab) and the current is a total...

    I'm a big fan of crate training.

    The dogs I had growing up were all crate trained, but typically had free roam of the house from age 2 or so onwards. My parents' dog now never gets shut into her...

    Dog was taken to the vet in the first week of having her. We dewormed her (since she's coming from a shelter), filled in her vaccination gaps, and did a general exam. Vet said all looked good, but of...

    My mum had a similar experience with our (now deceased) family dog. Dog went off food, mom & dog had a battle of wills. Dog won. Mom emptied out the dog-food bin so she could pour in the newly...

    I wish you were misinterpreting -- but what I saw really was that bad. Maybe it was out of the ordinary? But the dogs seemed to know what to do so I'm guessing it was the normal routine :eek:

    Hmm...

    I did read the article when you linked to it earlier -- sorry I should have commented on it. It was a good read, and I definitely agree with everything in it!

    I should clarify that at the shelter...

    So it turns out a colleague of mine feeds Dog Lover's Gold, but their grain-free versions (I think it uses potato instead of rice). I swung by his place on my way home from work and he gave me two...

    The friend's food was purchased as the home-brand of an agriculture supply store that we don't have in my area, so it's not practical to use for my girl.

    I could keep her on what she's on, it just...
  15. Battling the picky eater dog -- do I stay strong or give-in?

    My SO and I adopted a 9 month old medium sized (30 lb) mixed-breed dog at the end of September this year.

    She was on a raw meat diet but we just can't keep that up for practical reasons (too...

    Not taken as a lecture at all! I'm by no means a trainer but I do try to educate myself as best as possible through books, online lectures, and youtube videos. It's hard because not only is she a new...

    I definitely second the treat dropping (or giving from hand without eye contact if the dog is confident taking a hand-fed treat from them) especially if the dog is going up to sniff on his own.

    I definitely think it's possible to find another "unicorn". I'd reach out to local dog-service organizations (day cares, kennels, dog-walkers, trainers, reputable breeders, etc) and just let them...

    Introducing Pixel -- our new rescue!

    So I've posted a few times about my dog hunt. We had narrowed it down to 2 at a shelter and opted to go with an adorable young (estimated 10 months) female who had some people-socializing fears. Well...

    Thank you everyone for the comments! It all aligns closely with what I was expecting/anticipating.

    The shelter showed me a picture of her sister, who was adopted 2 weeks ago (she came in on an...
  22. Talk to me about socializing a rescue-dog

    So after quite a few dogs that got adopted out from underneath us (Vizsla, cute white mutt, and then a few others along the way) we went up to a shelter today that just had a load of young dogs...

    What brand do you use? I've been looking at the Outward Hound quick-release backpack -- I love the idea of waterbottle weights for days we have less time! (plus if she's running with me, she can...

    S1969 I think you hit the nail on the head about temperment versus exercise -- it's definitely something I'll be focused on when we meet her in person. I enjoy dogs that love to work and exercise as...
