Helpful Groups & Dogs in Need / Pit Mix needs help
« on: October 25, 2008, 10:51:42 am »
We need your help....I am the only one who posted to help....A beautiful high school girl who contacted me on a wonderful pit/boxer mix.  She and animal control convinced a young man to give up his pit/boxer mix because he was beating his dog on a regular basis.  Now he is in the local spca on death row.  They put down pits and pit mixes first because this area is a pit hate area.  She also learned that the other owner before this one beat Duke(if I am not mistaken is his name)

Now for some basic facts.  This guy is hand shy(what a surprise!!!)  He sooooo willing to please that he will stumble over himself to please you.  He is good with kids, and other dogs.  From what I can gather, there is nothing wrong with this guy other than the HUMANS that raised him.

My problem is that I live in a four dog household, one is a Newfy that is very dominate.  This dog needs a foster home that won't abuse and brow beat the already abused dog.  I cannot guarantee this.  This gal has already contacted soooo many rescues(200 I think she said and has only received perhaps 4 replies....sor ry the dog is not pure, your on your own. 

We ALL know that all of the rescues are jammed full of dogs given up because a financial situations.  And the trend is for "No Kill" shelters, this dog is not in one of those situations.... .

She needs our help....please .  JUST UNTIL THE END OF JANUARY.  She has a responsible rescue that she trusts that will find a forever home for this guy.  A good woman I think.

What a horrible lesson to learn to teach a high schooler at such a early time of life to try to save a dog only to commit it to death...don't let this slip by please.  THIS IS WORTHY.  Teach this gal that people DO CARE. 

Please look for DUKE!!!!! posted on the forum.

Thanks for reading this.

Food Discussion & Information / Salmon Oil??

My Cody, Newfoundland (16 month old) has been swimming in our swimming pool aaaalll summer long.....He has beautiful long dense fur, but he has developed dry dull fur...I guess due to the chlorine.  His skin is NOT dry....just his fur.  Right now he is on Innova and I really don't plan to change it because he doing really well here is my question....Wo uld adding fish oil to his diet help or hinder his fur or wellbeing? 

(Just so you know we just acquired a beautiful 8 week old pup(named Leroy) and I would like to make sure I do my best to improve our situation before he ends up in our pool next year.)

Thanks for your input. Thanks!!

Newfoundland Discussions / Anybody have trouble in dog parks?

Has anyone had trouble with dog park dogs?

The other week Cody and I ended up at the local dog park.  There was only one other dog and owner at the park at that time.  In other witnesses.  He was a malamute/shepard mix.  This dog went nuts and kept going after his ears. Blood dripping...the whole thing.  This lady had no control over her dog so I ended up pouncing on this beast(trust me, it wasn't pretty) and pinning him to the ground. I had to do something...Co dy just sat there looking at me....I had to protect him.  By the way, I am 48 years old and weigh about 115 pounds.  My face was covered in dust and tear streaks and the darn dog did bite me though he didn't break the skin.  Why do these people bring these dogs to the park if they can't control them? >:(

 Any other stories out there?

Newfoundland Discussions / Help with new puppy

Hi everyone,

I stumbled onto your site and decided to stay.  You guys are very approachable and don't even mind dumb questions.  Hats off to you.

Soooo, here's my question.....I currently have a 16 month old pup named Cody(I know, I know not very original name).  Been trained, exercised, neutered...... I am receiving a new pup named Leroy in 3 weeks ;D ;D ;D.....Cody is, shall we say......Rowdy at times.  How should we introduce our new puppy to our big beast and keep his rough play in check?
