What kind of dog do you own?

    Fri, 2007-02-23 00:28 — Bevois

    My hound dog Sofia is a fawn 13 month-old female boxer. She's got one of the sweetest temperments of any animal I've ever owned. She actually peed on Scotty when she was 5 weeks old, so she's obviously pretty smart too. Are there any other dog owners on here?

    Yes your dog does sound smart, give her an extra treat for the Scotty incident. :D

    I have a yellow lab which is super friendly and a high bred sheppard/wolf, which is teritorial and hates men (Other then me). Both of my dogs are great.

    wow, I didn't know they killed the white ones! That's f'ed up! I had a boston terrier from the age of 7 until I was 19 and about to join the Corps ... Penelope. Damn, if she could talk the tales she'd tell! I love my current dog but it's hard to compare her to Penelope. I had her so long. Rather, we were raised together. I just fed her and explored the woods around my house with her. I had 3 other brothers so she likely went on many adventures I never knew about.

    hello,

    thats a lot of shepards. are they work dogs? or "just" pets? once had that many. bred bulls. trained them for sale. had enough to keep it interesting. normally have to be kept apart from other dogs. so, usually had puppies running around. definitely a rowdy bunch. quite a grociery bill too!!! hahaha!!!

    did you raise yours? yorkies are little dogs right? are they loud (yappee)? jsut wondering. never seen a yorkie in person (don't think so anyway).

    thanks.

    cshudson's picture

    Shepherds are strictly pets, my dads let them have a litter or 2 and sold them at good prices (Not expensive) more or less we gave them AKC registered shepherds to friends and family.

    The yorkies are small the male barks alot but the female is chilled out. They are just my stepmoms little dogs.

    hello,

    jsut wondering. not much experience with little dogs, but they always seem somewhat hyper. sounds like your stepmoms dogs are not so bombastic. probably a good thing for the nerves!!!

    never had a shepard. they seem like decent dogs though. lots of hair though. looks like they could turn a house into a giant hairball!!!

    hahahahahaahahahaa!!!

    thanks.

    My white shepherd stays at my moms house, it gives her a sense of security since im not there all the time. She lets him sleep inside and he doesnt get hair everywhere. My shepherds have a real slick coat on them.

    i used to own an akc saint barnard .... name was rockford ... not like the old tv series... but the speakers .... his bark boomed lol... had to give him away to some rich folks.... the vet bills slaughtered the pocket book... at the time i had him on interceptor... heart worm preventative and general wormer... the vet bill was 65/trip (large dog charge) and the meds cost 225/6mo supply... for only 12 freakin pills!!!! not to mention he put away roughly 150lbs/mo of dog food... standing on his hind legs he was 6'9" from head to hind toes and his chest was HUGE and he weighed in at 235 when he was 2yrs old and was on target for his weight.. at least that's what the vet told me..... loved ladies and children... hated cops and non-whites... his opinion... not my training on that one....

    hello,

    hey!!!! mpeacock75!!!! wazzup? rockford sounds like a big'ol'boy!!! st bernard slobber alot, but are great dogs. really laid back. LOUD when they bark though!!! too bad you had to give him away. its always hard to part with a buddy like your own dog. but, 150 pounds is alot of chow. and that much for only 12 pills. it is alot.

    glad you found rockford a good home.

    and have to agree... a shepard can provide a big sense of security. not too many people wanna screw around with one of those!!! also, they are loyal companions. they like to play occasionally, but are mostly... statley dogs. they like to be near, not on top of... hahaha!!!

    thanks

    anything of the "Mastiff" family can be very aggressive... especially if it hasn't been socialized properly with the same gender of human... and more importantly, never stare a dog down... for them, it's a challenge of property... and if you don't frequent their territory as much as they do, then they will be more likely to accept such a challenge... the chances are, you're an intruder even though you know the dog very well.... the only way to lessen the aggression is to look away when the dog looks towards your eyes.... OR the less wise choice is to make the dog submit to you... (and i don't mean break the dogs spirit)... which means you might have to wrestle with him on the serious side and bite him as hard as he may bite you.... and saint barnards are EXTREMELY territorial dogs... more so than most people think they are.. none the less, it's better to seek help from a professional trainer on how to lessen his aggression...

    the other thing, male saints have a stronger bond with women and tend to abandon their bond with distant male humans... meaning: he's protecting your G/F and the G/F's mother.... which makes you... again, the intruder lol.... this would be a good case for a really good training program for him....

    hope this bit of info helps ya... and gl on the aggression thing... and every animal has a right to the benefit of doubt, always look to a no-kill shelter before euthanasia... if a no kill wont take it, then by all means... lay it to rest

    hello,

    hmmmmm. definitely like this explaination more that viral-crazy. yes. go with pro trainer.

    thinking about dog aggression brings thoughts about "intact" or not.

    this in turn brought about thoughts of penn and teller bullshit show.

    they did a segment on rubber dog balls. "so the dog won't know they're missing".

    apologies. renegade thought.

    thanks.

    He is a weird dog. he bit my g/f mom and has chased her sister barking and growling. and bit the lady down the street in the hand. I think my g/f's dad need to seriously think of letting the dog go, they live in a neighborhood with a few kids and alot of people. I just think this could become a lawsuit if this dog were to get out of the fence (like what he loves to do). Thanks for the great info about this. I will try to see what they think but im a huge dog fan but i am leaning toward putting him down, considering he bit me to.

    that's *a bit* odd..... there are a few viral cases where animals go crazy.... and also gun powder will make a dog go nuts... if the dogs owner has made any enemies, there could be someone who chunked a pound of hamburger meat over the fence tainted with gun powder... that being the case, the dog will *never* be right again... so yah, possibility of euthanizing him may be looked into....

    from what my dogs vet told me, the gun powder permanently damages the stomach lining and creates a sensational burning that never stops... on a scale of 1-10 imagine the pain of being kicked in the balls being 20..... that's what it feels like in a dogs gut and that's what makes them just go apeshit biting everyone....

    Black Powder, also called gunpowder, is a mixture of charcoal or other carbon and either potassium nitrate or sodium nitrate, with or without sulphur. It may be meal, granular, compressed or pelletized. Black powder is no longer used by the military as a propellant.

    also maybe a drug addict around the neighborhood doesn't like the owner and slipped some LSD (lysergic diethylamide) to the dog.... although not likely, but still a possibility..... probably one of the strongest cheap drugs to acquire and very easy to administer to animals w/o getting caught... either way, what works on animals will usually work on humans, and what usually works on humans, also may work on animals... here's a bit of info from a site i use:

    i personally have only known of one instance that happened to my childhood pet... a brindle Staffordshire bull terrier (not a pit bull either...) we had a neighborhood nuisance who seemed to hate dogs... particularly any dog that looked like *any* form of bull dog.... including Acadia (my bull terrier) she was an absolute sweetie... but she hated that dude because he always acted shady... he tried ethylene glycol (antifreeze) and gunpowder.... the antifreeze just made her sick, and we were able to nurse her back to full health... then later on he threw a pound of beef over the fence w/ about 4oz of gunpowder mixed in with it... tore her stomach up and we set her free after that episode, she would knock me down and hold me there and wouldn't let me up... and she bit my father on many occasions... acted totally insane until we finally caught the bastard doing other neighborhood dogs the same way... then we had to put her down.... if it weren't for me, my father would have laid her to waste sooner
