• Are my neighbours right to blame me?

    I have a man and woman living next door - both are in their mid to late thirties. 2 months ago, they adopted a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Ruby. For the first few weeks, they never left her side. But everything started to go downhill for Ruby. Both of them leave for work at 8.30am and don't come back until 6-6.30pm. They don't leave Ruby inside becaus they don't trust her, so they keep her outside in the back garden until they get back home. Ruby barks continuously for hours whenever she's left alone. I decided to report it to the RSPCA and they went to their house on Saturday. They said if they don't sort it out in a week, then they will take her off them. I kept the call anonymous, but they somehow found out I called them. They are angry at me. They said Ruby gets taken away from them, it'll be all my fault. Are my neighbours right to blame me?

  • How to get my dog to keep his food down and slow down at eating?

    So I have a 9 month old Rottweiler Pitbull mix, since I had him he has always ate his food really fast, I rescued him and I believe the reason he eats so fast is because he has fear of his food being taken away and not knowing when he's going to eat next.

    So I have a 9 month old Rottweiler Pitbull mix, since I had him he has always ate his food really fast, I rescued him and I believe the reason he eats so fast is because he has fear of his food being taken away and not knowing when he's going to eat next. I have had a hard time getting him to eat slow and actually chew his food and sometimes if he eats to fast he throws it up. 5 days ago we moved from cail to Florida. He was doing pretty good but the place we moved into have a little lab puppy, 6 months, they love each other but with the hole food thing he eats even faster, I have tured putting the little lab in a different room when I feed him but he will eat really fast so I tried putting water in his food to see if that will slow him down and get more water in him because hes to busy playing with his new friend and doesn't drink as much water as he should be but the water just made him throw up more, so any tips on how to get him to slow down at eating and even chew his food would be great and how to get him to drink more water would be very helpful, thank you for your time

    That being said, we our current dog is a very large lab that is a "seizure alert" dog for my oldest daughter who has had to move back in with us because of health issues (multiple seizures most days - can not be on her own.) But her oldest son (who is 17) does all the caring for it.

    ok so my moms jack russel mixed dog had 6 puppies 6 weeks ago and they are cute and really sweet, but my mom wants to keep all 6 of them. we already have the mama dog, the daddy dog, (beagle) and a 6 month old golden retriever puppy!!! We do not need anymore dogs. I get it if she wants to keep one but I feel like 9 dogs total is too much. We already live in a tiny trailer and she doesn’t take care of the dogs we have!!!! None of them are vaccinated except the golden retriever because the breeder vaccinated him before we got him my mom says she doesn’t believe in vaccinations for dogs that they can suck it up like that their bodies heal themselves but I tell her about PARVO and she says it can’t kill them but I know it can!! That it can spread to all the puppies and the 3 other dogs we have. But she doesn’t even take care of them I’m 13 and she makes me walk them and clean up after them and that’s fine BUT I DIDNT WANT any of these dogs except the beagle he’s mine but the others aren’t. I don’t mind caring for them but nobody else contributes. The mama dog rejected the runt of the litter so we had to bottle feed him and mom never did it so I ended up having to, one time I had to miss school because of it. I don’t think she should have any of these dogs but she won’t get rid of them and idk what to do bc I know we can’t handle 6 more dogs I know it’s her house her rules but NOBODY wants them here but her and they poop and pee everywhere!! What do I do?!?!!?!

    I have a six month old schnoodle that I got from a coworker a few months ago, I have never walked her at all since I got her. Usually I'll play with her for 15 minutes before I leave for work in the mornings and another 45 minutes to an hour outside in the backyard when I get home. After that she'll just spend the rest of the day on the couch while I while I'm on my computer or tv. This seems to tired her out pretty well. Recently I've also started to take her to a local dog park on Saturdays so she can socialize with other dogs. She's happy and I feel like she gets enough exercise in the backyard.

  • Should dogs be spayed/neutered?

    Best answer: The main reason most people feel so strongly that pet dogs should be spayed is a potential pregnancy, but there are definitely other negative effects that should be weighed.

    Best answer: The main reason most people feel so strongly that pet dogs should be spayed is a potential pregnancy, but there are definitely other negative effects that should be weighed.
    A dog has a lot less risks if they're spayed, so there really doesn't seem to be a good reason not to. So the people that don't spay their dogs are generally, but not always, people that are being ignorant and/or negligent and let their dog get pregnant. That's a big reason people feel so strongly.

    You really do sound intelligent and considerate, and I do believe you would likely keep your dog from getting pregnant. But the 1 in 4 risk of cancer is significant, and there is an much increased chance of reproductive infection including life threatening pyometra, and emotional issues like false pregnancy. I certainly understand worrying about an unnecessary surgery, but statistically, it is much safer to spay than to not, if your dog is young and healthy, but it's your decision what you feel is right for your dog.

LIKE THEYRE DOGS, ppl on here are mental about mixed dogs but the same ppl say go get one from a shelter...sorry hypocrite much. Also its a LONGGG process to adopt a dog from a shelter. Also you don t know it health and you don t know its parents or its specif age only an estimate

  • Why does my labrador have to eat every damn thing?

    All he spends his entire day doing is trying to eat things out of the trash or beg for food. It s all he cares about. It gets redundant.

    My therapist recommended getting an animal and I’ve been wanting a puppy for years now and I’m finally in a position where I feel I can actually take care of it. It’s just me in my apartment and I was either going to get a cockapoo or cavapoo as based on my research, they match my lifestyle the most. I travel maybe once every three to four months, I don’t go out much. Maybe like one Saturday a month if even that. I feel that getting the dog would benefit me a lot and I want to go get my furever friend but different friends with dogs have recommended against it. I’m 25 and they’re saying I won’t have a life, it’ll stop me from traveling and even dating potentially. I haven’t had a dog in over 10 years and really my parents took care of him so this is really MY first dog. Any tips/advice?
