I adopted a rescue dog a few months ago with a history of abuse/neglect. I still can’t get him near the door of the house so he lives in an outside kennel and has a dog box. For example, last weekend I sat down and threw treats his way to get him closer to me but he got halfway to the house and ran back to the kennel. He won’t tolerate a leash and just lays on the ground. The next problem would be house training due to the leash phobia and not wanting to go into the house. This Newfoundland/Boxer mix is the sweetest dog I have ever owned and I want him to be happy and healthy in our home!
She is just over 2 years old and a Belgian Shephard Cross with (I think) Podenco, due to the fact she has very large ears and was born on the Canarian island of Tenerife. It did grow quite quickly, it seemed to appear overnight almost and it hasn’t really grown much since I spotted it.
Mid July I rescued a Chihuahua, 1-2 yrs, male, not altered. Within 2 weeks of rescuing him, I had him neutered. For 6 weeks afterwards, I wore a belly band on him, because I have 2 other males, and didn’t want to risk him marking till his hormones straightened out. Everything was going well, till just recently, now he has started to poop in the house at least once a day, and I have caught him lifting his leg. What in the world is going on??? And how do I remedy this problem?? Thank you!
Cooper has a swollen eye and nose. he gets into a lot of things. Is it ok to give him Benadryl once to see if this helps solve the problem?
I have a female pit bull terrier (spayed) that is 10 months old. Pearl generally has a great disposition and gets along well with everyone including other dogs. The “problem” is that she is showing less and less interest in her dog food when first provided to her. And it’s the meaty stuff (Alpo cans)! I’m not too worried because she usually eats it eventually but she often will wait hours. Yes, Pearl is spoiled with treats and bits of human food but it seems so odd that she would rather eat whatever we might be having (e.g. a french fry) than this wet, meaty food. She weighs about 55 pounds and gets one 13 oz can in the morning and one in the evening. She also has a constant supply of dry food in a dish but she just picks at that upon occasion. She has a regular place to eat near where we eat and spend most of our time and her Alpo is given to her each time on a new (clean) dinner plate. We have one cat that ends up eating some of the food and Pearl doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, Pearl seems to be more interested in trying to eat the cat’s plain dry food than her own. In short, she seems to like eating most anything except her own dog food. Thoughts?

My Italian Greyhound puppy named Iggy is showing signs of skin allergies. Is it possible he has both a grass/pollen AND a food allergy? How common is that?
