    A month ago my dog was stolen out of my backyard. I made a police report but that is the farthest it went. A week ago, a neighbor who lives a block and a half a way was out walking the exact same dog I had. A female terrier mix. When the dog saw me, she started lunging toward me, jumping and I knew then it was her. I told him that was my dog and he told me she wasn't and told me to back up. He tried to go around me, but I stood in the way. He threatened to call the police. So I said go ahead. So he backed up and crossed the street. So I followed him until he reached his house. I called for assistance. It turned out that he had adopted the dog from a shelter an hour away. The shelter said they held the dog for a week, and no one came forward. When I had went to that exact shelter twice in the last month with photos and even looked in their holding center and never saw her. I tried to work with the man who adopted her. He is refusing to give me the dog back. I offered the adoption fee, plus extra for his inconvenience, but he isn't budging. He has been keeping the dog inside. I don't know what to do. I really want her back.

  • Is shooting and killing an animal considered animal cruelty?

    I witnessed my horrible neighbors shoot and kill a cat for absolutely no reason. I wanted my husband to tell them off and get the poor thing so we could bury it but he said it was on the mans property so he can’t do anything. I find that horrible and want to know if it’s something I can report to the police as animal cruelty. I want something done because I have 3 cats that live outside and often hang out in that barn where the poor cat was murdered. We’ve lived here 15 years and it’s never been an issue, only now that he moved in. So is there anything I can do to get this monster of a man to not hurt another living creature?

  • What can I do about this constant trespassing cat?

    I have caught it harassing the birds that visit my yard and have found some nasty suprises when I garden. Ive tried turning the hose on it and rattling a noisy can filled with little rocks but so far this big fat thing isn't getting the message!! It bolts when it sees me but I can't be out there 24 7 you know? And i really eally need this cat to keep out because next week I will be taking in two dogs from a family member who can no longer keep them and they do not get on with cats like at all. These dogs grew up with indoor and outdoor access so I want to install a dog door for them to use like at their previous home and I don't think I can guarantee this cat will always be so lucky in life if it keeps coming over. I have only ever seen this one cat and I know it is owned because it looks like it has a collar and is clearly well fed but I don't know where it lives.

  • My boyfriend’s dog is gross?

    Best answer: She seems a little on the old side. But the older the better! Dogs are just like humans. She must be in a lot of pain...they can get anxiety as well. You should really take her to the vet and see what it is. Training her would be really hard since she is old. There is something really wrong with her butt. Maybe she... show more
    Best answer: She seems a little on the old side. But the older the better! Dogs are just like humans. She must be in a lot of pain...they can get anxiety as well. You should really take her to the vet and see what it is. Training her would be really hard since she is old. There is something really wrong with her butt. Maybe she isn't groomed well? Try bathing her with good quality shampoo and just loving her for her. I know it sounds like I am saying that you probably don't...BT it is tough....my 12 year old lab suffered a big infection where he was doing the same thing...and he eventually passed. I wish I could have done something but it got too bad. Please do something so she could be more comfortable and so that you don't hate her anymore. Leaving her out all day kinda would make me feel depressed and stressed out...like no one wanting me. If I shad someone to show me that I am less stressed out or in less pain I would probably be less a pest. Please do something asap

  • Why are dogs more loyal than cats?

    Best answer: Some cats are funny that way. I had a cat who was always glad to see me even if I went on vacation. She always was glad to see me when I returned. My mother had a cat who would get upset if she went away and the cat gave my mom the cold shoulder treatment until the cat "forgave" my mom. As long as one... show more

My mother had a cat who would get upset if she went away and the cat gave my mom the cold shoulder treatment until the cat "forgave" my mom. As long as one is good and kind to dogs, they will be loyal. Cats tend to be more independent - but why that is - heaven only knows. Your cat might be a bit of a feral cat who likes to be outside. Some cats like to go out for the day or the night and return after they are done wandering. Dogs seem to be more homebodies who won't wander too far. The personalities of the cats and dogs are just so different.

  • Is My Neighbours Cat Neglected?

    Hi, My neighbours cat is always round our house.

    Hi, My neighbours cat is always round our house. Not complaining because it's adorable. because it's round so often we decided to buy it some food and leave a bowl of milk in the conservatory for it. I've noticed that the cat downs the milk and food within minutes. I've also noticed that if we go to stroke the cat it kind of hesitates so we give it space and let it come to us. The other day it slept in the dining room during the day but every time there was a slight noise it would literally jump which is probably normal. I've never owned a cat but I'm slightly worried about this one, it's flea collar is all torn and their eye looks mistreated and I just wondered if anything I said above would worry you also? Thanks.

    Luna is a Zuchon and she has her menstrual. With each cycle she becomes more stubborn about leaving her pamper on. 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.

    My dad’s been having some problems in his house, so he asked me if I could take care of his two dogs. They’ve been with us since June, but my family has complained almost every single day that one of the dogs barks too much. I put a collar on him and he stopped for a month, but my boss needed it for her rescue so I took it off of him. He started barking again. I went on vacation over the weekend and when I got back, I found out my uncle took the dog the shelter a few days ago without telling me. Is it possible at all to get him back? His other dog is a senior and already looks very depressed without the other. The shelter is closed so I can’t call or go down there, I’m scared they’ll tell me he’s been euthanized.
