Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

  • Curious what breed people think my dog is

    So I have a 7 month old dog and I do know what mix she is. Everywhere I take her I am always asked what is she and people always guess different breeds. So far no one has guessed what she is but to me I can clearly see what mix she is. I am just curious what other people think. She is only about 15lbs and won't get much bigger. The rescue was guessing that she would be closer to 20-25lbs full grown. She is a mix of two breeds and her fur is soft. It is a little coarse on the top but is not wire haired. I don't mind talking to people but it does get a little tedious sometimes when I am trying to get in and out of a petsore fairly quickly.

    you should be able to scroll over and see the 3 pics of her

        That dog was made to star in the movies. I'm sure she'd steal every scene she was in.

            I thought Yorkie too, but I can't figure out the other half that would have given her that crazy long tail!

              When you own such a bundle of adorableness, you just have to accept the loving admiration from others that comes with it. I have no idea what mix she is, but I'll be watching this to find out.

                Long haired Dachshund X Bassett Hound? Wild guess, but the long tail, knock knees in front, and bigger nose makes me think Bassett.

                My friend had that cross, but a smooth coat Doxie was the other parent. "Chance" was a sweet little black dog, she ended up around 20 lbs or so....

                Your dog is absolutely adorable

                    Schnauzer/Cocker Spaniel

                    She is remarkably schnauzer-like in facial structure, ear carriage, and tail length. Her coat color and texture looks spaniel to me, maybe cocker. Considering the average weight for a schnauzer is in the high teens and a cocker spaniel is in the low 20s it would explain the projected weight in the low 20s but at the same time mixes usually come from poor representations of the breed so it makes sense that the dog could end up significantly smaller since many schnauzer and cockers are seen undersized in the lower teens.

                    Of course I might be totally off base but that was my thought process behind my guess.

                          The one good thing about repeating your mistakes is that you know when to cringe.

                            I'm going to guess one half is Cairn Terrier and that's it. I feel like I should be able to guess the other half but it's not coming to me.

                              I think Cocker/terrier.

                                • Original Poster

                                  Thank you guys so much! She is absolutely adorable and if I was anywhere near the movie business I'd be looking for a gig for her. She is extremly smart. She picks up commands and tasks after one or two times. She's graduated puppy class, a beginner agility class and is now in advanced obedience (she skipped novice) She will be taking her CGC in a month and I expect her to pass with flying colors. I totally get that people will stop and ask me what she is because she is so cute. I did add a few more pics including a few puppy pics. I also included one where her face is wet. She has quite a bit of hair and when it's wet she looks different. I know of about 90% of her breeding and none of that 90% is a terrier. The other small percentage could be but I have no way of knowing.

                                    another hint...while she loves dogs and is well socialized with them she beelines towards people first then greets the dog

                                      Except for the color she looks just like the dog in National Velvet!

                                        Makes me think of a Cairn/Wheaten with a Dachshund but I'm not betting the farm on it!

                                        She's as cute as they come!
