I need to put a onesie on her that does not have an opening at the crotch so that it can cover her pamper so that she can t take it off. I tried buy 9-month old onsies and they didn t fit properly in that I couldn t zip them closed and her legs were too short. I ve looked for dog onesies and only found ones that are open at the crotch whcih would allow her to still take off her diaper. Where can I find one that will fit her and cover her entirely?

  • Which breed would you choose? An German Shepherd or Husky?

    Best answer: Neither. Both are very high shedding dogs. Both are demanding dogs in the sense you must keep them active and train them from day one as they are dominate type of dogs and need a strong leader.

    And both breeds (huskys more so) need a lot of exercise every day or they become neurotic and can become aggressive.

  • In your opinion, which type of dog people are the worst?

    Best answer: IMO the worse ones (and it goes for cats or other pets too) are those who get a pet because they are cute and fluffy or as a "fashion statement". Who don't care about the animal. After its done being cute and cuddly, they find all kinds of "problems" with the pet and then want to dump... show more

    Those are the WORSE pet owners.

  • Puppy having diarrhea for 3 weeks!! HELP?

    So I got my German Shepard puppy about 6 weeks ago. She was 8 weeks old when I got her. I took her to the vet and she had roundworms and hookworms. We got her medicine and also her shots and everything was good for the next 2 weeks. Then I took her back and they check her poop again and said everything was clear and good! So we took my puppy home and continued with our life. About a week later when we took her out she was having diarrhea, we thought maybe it was just her food or small tummy ache that caused it. She continued having diarrhea for another day! So we took her back to the vet. Her poop was clear so they have me some anti-diarrhea medication to give her for 14 days. She continued to have diarrhea for the next 2 days then her diarrhea was BLOODY! It scared me and freaked me out so I rushed her BACK to the vet to check for parvo and other things. Everything came back negative so I didn’t know what could of caused it!!! They just gave me more meds.. her bloody poop continued for another 2 days so I decided to take her to a different vet. They found the coccidia parasite all in her stool. Said that was what caused the diarrhea and blood in stool. They gave me medicine to give her for 8 days and it should get better.... NOPE. her diarrhea is getting WORSE and she can’t even hold it in anymore!! It just starts coming out like water everywhere! I just don’t know what to do anymore.. I’ve spent almost $600 in vet bills and idk what to do now.

  • Why do breeders/ owners of the type of dogs we always used to call 'Alsatians' now insist on calling them 'German Shepherd Dogs'?

    When I was younger these dogs were always called Alsatians. I first heard them called German Shepherds in the late 1970s when I was around 20, now it is frowned on to call them Alsatians.

  • Are people who teach dogs to stand in two feet and walk cruel?

    Best answer: Cruelty is in the eye of the watcher. Is it cruel to let a dog grow up, free from human touch, having no boundaries, no human contact or companionship.... leaving it’s coat matted and tangled, nails overgrown but.... totally natural just like if it had been born in the wild? Some people get dogs, toss them out... show more
    Best answer: Cruelty is in the eye of the watcher. Is it cruel to let a dog grow up, free from human touch, having no boundaries, no human contact or companionship.... leaving it’s coat matted and tangled, nails overgrown but.... totally natural just like if it had been born in the wild? Some people get dogs, toss them out side to live their whole lives in a kennel or on a chain, in a fenced in area, only receiving food and water because it’s ownes believe they are doing right by letting the dog live “free”. They don’t see the dogs need for companionship. They don’t see the dogs need for human contact nor the need for structure in it’s life. After all there are no vets in the wild, nor are there groomers to strip their coats nor clip their nails.l.l so why should they need do this to their dog?

    Some people are unique in their thinking, right or wrong. My dogs do a host of tricks from carrying items to shadow dancing, they pull carts, chase in stock, some do housework, some just lay like a dog, nothing expected from them but good behavior.

    Many dog naturally stand on their hind legs and look over objects, our beagle for whatever reason loves looking over the fence and will stand on his hind legs for over 20 minutes watching the kids ride their bikes, does this mean I’m a cruel owner because I don’t run out snd correct him every time he decides to stand up and watch? I would literally live outside whenever he was out unable to do any work.

    Most dogs will refuse to do a trick if it hurts them or bothers them, they simply sit or lay on their side refusing to get up, some dogs will run from their owners to refusing to be caught to practice training. If you get down to it everything we do to dogs would be considered cruelty as we don’t make them hunt their food like they would do in nature, we are hurting them by simply endulging them and shoving food at them, often times too much food with too little exerceise, nor is it their choice of foods usually. We don’t give them natural water from a river or lake, it’s filtered often with chlorine or fluoride in it which they wouldn’t get in nature. We cut their nails, put collars around their necks that restrict them from time to time. We force them to get poked and prodded by a vet, set rules and regulations where to toilet and when, nothing we do is natural to a dog yet they tolorate our imperfections.

    Why do dogs let their owners put silly clothes on them, cut their hair so they look stupid or color them pink, blue, purple and just about any other color someone desires? Dogs are carried around in purses and bags like they can’t walk, made to wear jewelry, sunglasses and shoes... big difference between a rug to keep them dry and warm and a tutu and glitter bra with fairy wings and slippers.

    Depending on whom you ask, is the wild unhandled matted dog the lucky one because we have not forced any of our strange customs upon it, or is the obedience we’ll loved partner/family member that lives by our rules and spends their time with us cuelly treats because they are not totally free to do what they want as they want to?

    Keep in mind ther are no morbidly obese dogs in the wild, nor are dogs carried and pampered around like some type of stuffed animals. Domesticated dogs usually are lacking exercise and are usually overfed both are considered cruelty to the dog, pretty much everything we do to a somesticat d dog can be considered a form or cruelty because it’s not natural to the animal.

    A lot of dogs won't tolerate another dog coming into their home anyway, let alone a dog that isn't good with other dogs when out. It is the case that you should do more to train this dog but there are some dogs who just have to be managed rather than cured of dog / dog aggression.

    Sit down again with her about this as her dog could end up in a serious situation here... does she really want that.

  • What dog breed is the least hyper and which is the most hyper?

    Best answer: Hyper is more of a temperament issue not a breed issue.

    Best answer: Hyper is more of a temperament issue not a breed issue. You can’t say a dog bred for herding is hyper when it starts running back an forth gathering it’s group of animals together, nor can you say a dog or puppy’s hyper because nobody’s taken the time to train it not to jump up and down, barking and scratching at people especially if it has not been given enough exerceise.

    Any dog can be gentled and taught to be quiet and laid back, and any dog can be taught to act aggressive, threatening and barking at people. With training and patience, love and understanding even poorly bred dogs can learn manners. The temperament will show up in their training, as some dogs are more willing to learn and have more patience.

    Many people think because a dog is hyperactive, destructive, has vices like digging or barking constantly it’s because the dogs a mixed mongral or the dogs badly bred where in fact it’s the owners fault for not bonding with the puppy, ignoring it, not training it properly and the most important is giving the dog something to occupy its time. When a dog of any age or breed or mix gets bored they start finding something to do, this is usually a game that’s fun for dogs and once they start doing these games they usually dont start because it becomes a habit. Dog games include but are not limited to digging and chewing up carpeting, running insanely through the house (not to be confused with the happy excited zoomies some dogs get) there’s chewing millwork (window sills, doors, door trim etc) chewing up furniture, chewing walls, peeling off wall paper or getting into the humans possessions and eating and destroying whatever they get their lips on. If these same dogs were exerceiseed on a regular bases and taught obedience chances are they wouldn’t start entertaining themselves and stay out of trouble. The majority of dogs that are surrendered as hyperactive, untrainable and incorraigable turn out to be dogs that have raised themselves and didn’t automatically know basic obedienceence commands once they matured.

  • I really love my dog and I dont want him to die . He’s a havanese and I’ve felt more connected to him than any other breed?

    Best answer: unfortunately, that's just apart of life. just take care of him and enjoy him while he's around. then remember the good times you had with him when he's gone. when you're ready, there are plenty other dogs and pets that can use a good home.
