    My dog got into some rat poison. I'm pretty sure it's tomcat refillable mouse bars but I am not sure. I have pictures of my dog and the bar he was chewing on next to a full bar for comparison. I have given my dog some stuff to try and induce vomiting but so far it isn't working. He's ate the rat poison within 2 hours. It hasn't even been a full hour yet. I'm hopeful he will throw up but if he doesn't, i'm scared he ingested enough to kill him. https://image.ibb.co/iUMNaR/25435405_245... https://image.ibb.co/jGQR26/25440856_245... https://image.ibb.co/bZEx9m/25467658_245... https://image.ibb.co/fCpVUm/25435177_245118766021592_1052248670_o.jpg https://image.ibb.co/jgwoFR/25445121_244982682701867_1366946187_o.jpg

    So my dogs, sister and I were walking in the park on Wednesday when we were attacked by an off leash pit bull. He was with his owners and as soon as he saw my larger dog, he bolted and started biting her face and throat. He even bit her leg and pulled fur out. I immediately started trying to separate them which lead to him knocking me over twice(I injured my back and hands) and he even chewed on my hand (no blood). His owners didn t try to stop him until he knocked me over a second time and I didn t get up because I was in pain. He also knocked over my sister. My dog started running away and he chased her to try and bite her again but then his owners called him back. She doesnt have any bad bite marks but she is limping on the leg whrre he pulled her fur out. My back and legs are in lots of pain from where he knocked me over, and my hands are sore. My problem id that these owners had their dog off leash in a public area, and that he immediately attacked our dog unprovoked. I remember clearly what he looks like and what his owners look like, should I report this? From my witnessing, this was a pretty vicious attack, our dog was constantly helping as she tried to get away.

    My 8 year old chihuahua breed mix contracted a very dangerous fever two days ago. I took her to a vet who recommended I keep her there overnight so they can administer tests and treatment on her. Today, I got the terrible news that she's suffering from multiple organ failures and due to her age, she isn't responding to treatment. My family is crushed and we're preparing ourselves for our little dog's incoming death. What can I do in my situation? I don't want to prolong her suffering so I want to put her down gently but my sister is against that since she wants to bring her home and have our dog pass away naturally with us.

    I'll start this off by saying I love my girlfriend and I love dogs. I even work with dogs. However, this dog, I find it very difficult to deal with. I also live with my gf and she LOVES this dog. Okay so She doesn't listen hardly ever, she's terrible when you walk her and pulls and tries to jump at everyone and cars (not aggressively just annoyingly like good dogs don't do that and it's embarrassing) when I kiss my girlfriend or we are cuddled up on the bed or something she gets right in between us and she's constantly putting her face right in my face and pushing against me. She doesn't listen to me only to my girlfriend and we've been trying to train her better but she will only listen sometimes or she'll just ignore us and walk away and my gf won't do anything about it and it's killing me. My own dog is so well behaved and so smart and listens when called or if you tell him to get down or something. I feel really bad but I just need advice on how to handle my dislike towards her better because it always kills my mood or makes me bitter. I would also like to point out that I don't always feel extreme dislike for her but I guess im not used to having a dog who selectively listens and isn't very bright and who has an annoying personality. What do I do?

    My husky has been an outside dog for years, it's not too cold outside so I know that's not the reason plus he won't come inside as he feels it's hot with the running heater. Also I've noticed that he only wants to be at a certain spot and won't move from there, he starts crying for no reason nonstop all night long. I've tried keeping him in different spots (front yard/back yard) but he insists in just one spot near the corner of a tree near one of our neighbours backyard. He literally wants to be there all day, can not make him move from there. He was okay in that spot for about a week then began crying again only during the nights. I make sure he eats, he has plenty of drinking water. I make sure he's comfortable. I do not see anything unusual around, everything outside is pretty normal but he looks through the fence a lot to the neighbors home yard way too much, I've looked through the fence myself to see if there could be anything unusual there but everything is normal. Any idea why he be crying? This is my first time having a husky but I've had him for years, I've made sure he's properly taken care of and I've been successful for years, I have no clue what is going on.

    I have a 2.5 year old dog. His first one year and a half he would live outdoors in the day and indoors in the night. Then we moved houses, for the next 6 months he lived indoors and would be taken outside to poop and pee. 6 months ago we built him a big space in the frontyard so he could live outside and and night we'll bring him in the house so he could sleep but all he does when he's outside is bark and cry. It's a pretty big space and he has a bed and everything so he's comfortable. But when I take him out in the morning he barks for like 30 minutes nonstop, then stops for like 1 hour. Then barks again for like 30 minutes, stops for an hour and continues barking alot and so on. If someones comes near the house or someone goes outside the house his 30 minutes of barking start. And when there's a car he's never seen parked infront of the house he doesn't stop barking until it leaves, same with when you're standing outside. It's like all he does when outside is bark and cry so we could bring him in the house and idk how to make him stop.

    Best answer: Most of them will. pit bull is a catch all for most bully breeds, the pit its self is just so messed by BYBers, it is not the dog it used to be. Mankind has ruined the breed with all the ignorant BYBers popping out very low quality pups.

    A pit made a great pet for a little boy going into manhood, never a problem with him at all, or so the story said. At the age of 7 the pit attacked & killed an uncle that lived with the family. Out of no where came this sudden attack & death of an adult man. For 7 yrs the dog was good & then one day.......... Just one example out of thousands. the pit now days is just a mutt cause of the way mankind (BYBers) because they don't care about the quality of a dog, they just want the dog to have puppies to steel your money. Psychologically messed up breed. Don't get the dog.

    Best answer: Firstly I'm going to repeat an answer I gave before on pit bulls.
    _____________________
    I actually wrote an essay on this topic.

    The “pit bull” is very wrongly stereotyped.
    Sure, you open up your favorite news web page and you never really see a story about a Chihuahua mauling a full-grown man, but that’s because it isn’t as capable as a “pit bull.” The main problem is that the media gets more off an exaggerated story than an accurate and true case.

    For example, in this day’s society and media, any bully breed is reported as a “pit bull.” Bully breeds are dogs that have similar traits to “pit bulls”. Just a few examples;
    - Alapaha Blue Blood
    - American Bulldog
    - Banter Bulldog
    - Boston Terrier
    - Bull Mastiff
    - Bull Terrier
    - Cane Corso Italiano
    - English Bulldog
    - French Bulldog
    - American Bully Dog
    - Old English Bulldog
    - Valley Bulldog
    - Boxer
    (Although similar, these breeds came from common ancestors of the “pit bull” rather than from “pit bulls” themselves.)

    And it gets even more ridiculous.

    http://images.huffingtonpost.com/2015-09...

    Media gets better ratings when they say the attack/cause of death was a “pit bull.” On average, there are about a million dog attacks a year, but people don’t care about the non-fatal and unreported dog attacks. Non-fatal and unreported attacks take up over 79.52% of total bites and attacks.

    “Most dog bites do not come from Pit Bulls, but rather small and medium sized dogs. A large percentage of bites go unreported because the bite did not require medical attention. Pit Bulls are strong and when they bite, like all large-breed dogs, the bite is bigger, causing more damage. If we were to only look at dog attacks coming from non-criminal owners, the percentage of Pit Bull attacks drops dramatically to where it would be less of an issue than Labrador Retriever attacks.”

    “Pit bulls” were actually once called nanny dogs. No matter what “pit bull” haters say, they were NOT originally bred for pit fighting. Originally, they were actually bred to herd, retrieve livestock, and guard children. They originated from the UK. Eventually, they were bred off into two genetically different breeds; the Staffordshire Terrier and the Nanny dog. The Staffordshire Terrier was bred to be exclusively a livestock retriever/ranch dog. The Nanny dog was bred to exclusively guard children.

    When brought to America, the Staffordshire Terrier became the American Staffordshire Terrier and became more of a family dog rather than a ranch dog. The Nanny dogs’ original job was to be protective and fight off attackers. The more capable the dog was to win the fight, the more they were bred. The weaker Nanny dogs were eventually bred out of the gene pool. The Nanny dogs ended up actually stronger than the Staffordshire Terriers, so they were defiled by the cruel selfishness of humans.

    When introduced to America, the Nanny dogs started to be used in pit fight just because their strength and willingness to attack if necessary had potential for pit fighting. Very quickly, people noticed that the Nanny dogs were winning more than any other dog. The prime trait in breeding fight dogs is aggression. As Nanny dogs were more commonly used as fight dogs, they were bred to be dog aggressive. Only DOG aggressive because a pit fighter “handler” was supposed to be able to pull their dog off another one without the dog turning and attacking them.
    This is when they officially became the American Pit Bull Terrier.

    The misleading concept that they are most likely to attack humans was created when people started breeding them for other illegal purposes, such as guarding an illegal drug production plants.

    “Take away the Pit Bull and you will not eliminate the problem. Pit Bulls are victims of criminals who use them as status symbols. They are their current dog of choice.”

    The American Pit Bull Terrier’s bad reputation came from being commonly associated with criminals. However, I cannot deny that some were bred into the human aggressive trait. With law enforcement stricter on dog fighting and breeding, very few genetically human aggressive dogs are out there. Once the human and dog aggression is completely bred out, criminals will switch to another breed and demonize them.

    The arguments that it’s “the owners fault” and “they are naturally aggressive” are actually both true. However in the long run, it was humans that made them aggressive.
    ___________________________________

    To answer your question, I think he may not be getting enough exercise and is hyper aggressive. I would consult a trainer and/or animal behaviorist about this.

    It was a very, very tough decision and we are from a small town. We tried rehoming for a couple weeks after owner leaves him outside 24:7 but due to only being on a leash, he is not trained, so nobody wants him... two of us felt that in the long run if he isn't adopted out of the shelter then being put down is probably best. (Most shelters, NOT all, do the best they can but we can't keep every dog) Please don't say I'm an awful human being when it's the hardest thing i ever had to do in my life is to see a dog suffer and be miserable in the cold. My mom said no dogs but the owner gave permission to get rid of him.
