I guess what I don't understand is why they were 3 feet from the dog and a snare pole could not of been used. What actually does it mean that the dog "eye balled" them and caused the officer to shoot instead of apprehending. It seems like it has become the norm to just shoot the dog and carry off in a big black bag. (Feb 19, 2013 | post #27)
I actually saw 2 dogs outside at the garage on 28th and Westline today. They did not look too "lucky" to be out in this cold weather on a short leash. One had a dinky little house and the other had nothing but frozen water in a bowl. They are clearly visible from the road and I'm surprised no one else has called about them. Dogs are living things and not yard ornaments. Just pathetic how some people treat man's best friend. (Jan 18, 2012 | post #6)
I'm no expert but possibly introducing it to her in short periods might be helpful. Try not to make a big deal over it. Show it to her slowly by hand or on the floor and let her get comfortable with it on her own terms. (Feb 21, 2011 | post #2)
Hope all went well with the specialist. It is always upsetting when a 4 legged family member is faced with a challenge. (Oct 29, 2010 | post #2)
Dogfighting hurts animals, children and communities. Please be aware of a large number of pit bulls at a location, dogs with scars or wounds, and people visiting at odd hours. Dogfighting is illegal in the U.S and a felony. Be the voice for those who cannot speak. (Oct 9, 2009 | post #9)
I have a rather large dog book collection and "Beautiful Joe" by Marshall Saunders is a nice childrens book. (Aug 30, 2009 | post #5)
I'm food slave to 3 pit bulls. 13 year old Tawny Lee who can't hold her licker, 6 year Rogue who barks at a leaf falling off a tree, and 2 year old Chaos who is a big sweetheart and bed hog. (Dec 31, 2008 | post #51)
I've been involved with Pit Bulls for the last 12 years and agree with the last post completly. (Jun 10, 2008 | post #3)
Breed specific laws punish the wrong end of the leash. I believe my good dogs should'nt have to pay for the irresponsible owners who abuse them. (Jun 8, 2008 | post #4)
I always pick up after my dogs on walks. I wish more people would be responsible and do the same. The bags are easily available at pet shops and even the grocery store bags work fine. (Jun 1, 2008 | post #7)
We lost our 9 year old male Pit Bull to cancer 2 years ago. This story really hit home with me because I also made the weekly trips to Camboro and Willoughby, Ohio for his treatments. The vet bills came close to $5,000 but would do it again with no regrets. We love our furry family. (May 30, 2008 | post #16)
I was not asked for proof of anything even though I took the time to bring shot records and spay/neuter certicates along. I feel all they really cared about was my checkbook and not my pets. (May 14, 2008 | post #6)
When I went to the groomer today I was surprised to see that they have a sign posted that they are also checking for valid licenses. (May 7, 2008 | post #18)
My reference was to a more humane way of animal control. I don't blame a cop doing his job against an aggressive dog. Just wondered if there could be an effective alternative to shooting. (Apr 14, 2008 | post #8)
I can honestly say 99% of the time I do. Since I have 3 large dogs I've found the blue grocery bags do work better for me too. I wish more people would do this comman courtesy. The park where I walk needs more garbage cans to encourage others to pick up after their pets as well. (Apr 13, 2008 | post #2)
