Due to unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances, I am no longer able to keep my dogs to a reasonable living standard. I'm having trouble deciding between taking them to the vet to be put down, and rehoming them.

On the one hand, they'd have the chance to live out the rest of their lives.

On the other hand, they're a bonded pair, so they have to go together. One is chronically unwell. Both are large, aggressive to other dogs and some people, unsuited to families with children as the younger one is food aggressive, and unsuited to farms as they would...

What breed are your dogs? There's a lot more people who are willing to take care of desirable breeds, whereas you'd have a hard time finding anyone to rehome even a healthy pibble.
>>
>>2277506
Maybe see if any local rescues would be willing to take them. I know the ones in my area would absolutely not break up a bonded pair and they could at least be in foster with an approved person until the ideal owner comes up. Don't euthanize the dog if he has a manageable condition

So my local stray shelter has a purebred female basset hound that is about 1 or 2 years old, she's really nice but one of her front legs kinda sticks out to the side at her ankle. Is that a big deal? They told me some long complicated name for it but I can't remember and when I googled it all I came up with was "fiddlefoot". They offered to have their vet talk to me about it if I felt uncertain, but I had to get somewhere and suddenly the anxiety hit me like a train and I just needed to get out. I put a 24 hour hold on her and am going to see her again later...

I don't know anything about basset hounds or this condition, but if she's only 1-2 years now and having issues she's probably going to really wrack up the vet bills later on. Not to mention, it'd be a bummer if you couldn't go on runs with your bud.

I'm not aware of any issues you might have with the golden retriever. Unless he was malnourished for a long time, should be okay.
>>
>>2277414
the girl I talked to said that its a common thing in bassets and that she might develop arthritis later on but it's not associated with anything else, I just wanted more input because I don't know anything about them either. I'll probably talk with the vet about it too I guess

>runs
honestly I don't want a dog for that, I'm really introverted and have bad anxiety and just want a dog to hang out with. I work from home as a programmer and have a pretty generous stable income so more than anything I just want a companion to keep me company I guess. an older pitbull is what I actually wanted, but I didn't realize that the house I rent has restrictions on pitbulls, Rottweilers, German shepherds, and huskies.

Pyrs are really independent and don't like to listen straight away (they'll do what you ask but in their own time). I rescued one a few months ago and he was nice but withdrawn as well. After being with him a bit, he really opened up and became a huge cuddle bug. I guess it's just in the breed to be nice but not affectionate with people they don't really know.

You're about to turn into a cat

Ok, this might be a dumb question but... How often do cats need to use the litter box?

I have a 13 years old female cat (not spayed). I left her 2 years at my parents' place because former roommate was allergic, and now that he left I took her home yesterday morning (it's 3PM right now where I live).

After the initial shock of moving, she seems to be doing fine now. She ate (she's not a big eater though, and has never been), now she's moving around exploring the place and sometimes coming back for some cuddles. I even saw her grooming herself...

Mostly sure it's the same for cats--my dog refused to poop for two days when we moved apartments, and it took a long while to get him to pee, too. Spent a lot of time being paranoid he'd shit in the house so he returned to "puppy rules" for a while (crated whenever he wasn't supervised, bathroom breaks every two hours, etc). Chalk it up to moving stress. The animal doesn't understand moving.

If you're really worried, take it to the vet. I'd personally wait until two or three days had passed before I worried.

I compare dogs to infant children. I do believe most animals, especially dogs and cats, to be fully capable of awareness like an infant or young child. Self-aware? Probably not so much. And cats are just autistic babies.

I do care a lot about animals' happiness and do what I can with them to make them happy, which is usually just giving them something to do. I wish all conscious things well, but I don't believe it matters below a certain level of intelligence (I'd draw that line at... anything below a rat).

Does anyone have any experience with these? My gf wants an aquarium for christmas and likes the look of these, but all the reviews are pretty contradictory. Some say the 15L version is only good for shrimp and fish will die, while other reviews say that whoever says that is some sort of purist and they've had fish in them no problem.

Anyone have any thoughts?

If you pick a hardy species of fish, it might live a couple months. Maybe you could get a couple years out of a betta if you live in a warm climate.
But yeah, they are shit for keeping fish in. Especially if you want those fish to be healthy and live their full lifespan.

It probably be better for her to pick out the creatures she'd like to see in a tank, then find a tank appropriately sized to the needs of whatever she thinks is pretty.

Thanks, I really appreciate the reply. That's a shame, but I know she wouldn't want to be torturing and then replacing them every few months.

Back when I was a kid my grandfather found a week old crow among the grass and long story short, by the time the crow was a year old he was practically a dog with wings. He would follow us around while biking and take a ride on the handles. He would constantly bring home coins and shiny objects and was pretty much an indoors pet (despite having open windows and constantly walking out with him he would refuse to leave).

The cunt is almost 21 years old and I always wanted to get one myself.
I finally found a crow breeder that will be selling them this next breeding season,...

2 months is roughly 8 weeks, which is the standard for a lot of animals when it comes to breeding. I see your point, but I also am uneducated on what type of risks could be available taking it away too early

Ask the breeder about the thought process behind why he waits 2 months, and debate if necessary on getting one earlier if it suits you

Tell the breeder you'll pay more to take it early.

Works pretty much every time.

Just take one from a tree (common crows are illegal to own in the US), they nest relatively low and usually around areas dense with trees like parks.
