This is Socks. Hes pretty chill and we go on walks sometimes and we watch a lot of tv together.
She looks like she's seen some shit
Looks like she's guarding something very important.
Dalmations are such a beautiful breed. Nice eyes anon, how old is he/she?
Haha, love the face. Looks like he could do a couple hours of fetch without getting tired.
Aaw, so freakin cute
Beautiful dog dog
Is that a staffy? My mother is thinking about getting one, but since my brother already has a dog we're worried they might not get along. Do you know if socializing it well and early works?
Honestly if I were you, I would check out a shelter that does fosters in peoples homes. They have a better grip on the dogs personality because they've had hands on experience with them, plus the shelters are FULL of pit/staffy mixes. That, and you won't have to go through the puppy stage again.
If you do go the pure bred route, just make sure you find a good breeder that's got some records on their animals and good references.
Some kind of bully mix. I don't have any of my good pics on this laptop, but she looks like every other pit mix you'll see. The people we got her from said she was half pit, half lab, but I think they were lying about the lab so they could get rid of the pups. We just didn't care at the time.
I've had enough dogs before to know breed doesn't always guarantee a good or bad dog.
Possibly. Sounds like a typical case of people not socializing/taking proper care of their dog. To me it sounds like it was very protective/aggressive of it's home and area, and possibly didn't want to go back as well. The nipping/biting as you were walking away is a sign that it didn't want you near it's property.
I think you guys did the right thing, but you should always be cautious with dogs you don't know and just (if you're going to grab the dog or get a hold of it) try and use a leash or rope so your hands are not in danger of getting bit.
If you see that particular dog out again, I would call animal control to come pick it up.
I got up this morning after a terrible sleep, and found she had shat everywhere, well, at least most of it was at the door (she knows to go outside to do business, at least she tried).
So I chucked her outside and started cleaning up, shit was dripping from most things.
Outside she was in a good mood, having gotten whatever it was out of her system and seeing her human so interested in her this morning, and happily wagged her tail. Fanning shit all over the decking/windows and outdoor dining.
It took me about 2 hours to clean her and the mess up. She still is the best thing in my life.
I've got two dags, both Chinese Crested.
Meet Ozzie, he was grumpy that I woke him for a photoshoot and so refused to pose.
And Lucky, who is always happy to have his photo taken.
They're my little cutie-poos.
My boy Ace (Black) and his brother. 7 month Boxer/Pointer mix.
And this was our other dog until about 4 hours ago. She fought to stay alive for the last week, but finally lost the battle. Sweet Rat Terrier friend, 10 years young.
This is my dog Midnight. Lab mix, probably with husky or pit bull. Sorry it's a bad pic, he wouldn't look at the camera. It's 5:30 am and he's tired.
This is Maggie, I don't even know what breed she is but she looks like an ewok
I'm in college and 600 miles away from my dogs, I miss them. I had three mutts but the chow mix was really attached to me, i heard theyre single person dogs so maybe that's why she favored me.This thread makes me feel a lot better
Hi, I think your dog mite be a kye-leo -- half Llasa-Apso and half Maltese. They are an official 'rare breed.' I had one named Chico for 14 years (adopted from a shelter in Houston) and he was a wonderful dog -- a big flirt, smart, funny.
For some reason the little asshole is obsessed with soup cans
As far as I know, she is mixed breed, but I remember finding something once that looks exactly like her.
Anyone got any idea what breed she might be?
Ah, here's a shitty 3 year old phone photo.
Rate my qt, he's about 12 atm and hes starting to get a lil meek ;_;
Malinois x German wirehaired pointer.
She was the only one in the nest without a beard.
She's old and grew up around dogs, so she tolerates him. He's very gentle with the cat and doesn't chase her at all, he's more interested in his toys and people. He's really just a big baby that loves to cuddle.
Took the pic just a few minutes ago after our walk. It's been a week since his neutering, so he hasn't been able to exercise like he likes. He was VERY happy we got a long walk today.
Thanks anon.They are such great dogs. Never been a small dog kind of guy, but she was special. She was more on the Type B side, but not quite as stumpy legged. Somewhere between the two. Her legs shrank quite a bit as she aged. That or her gut started hanging a bit too low. She was a few pounds overweight.
Cute puppers. Does she have any markings on her body? Haven't seen many pure white like that.
It sucks, mine still acted young and was running around chasing squirrels up until the last 6 months or so as her health began to fail.
This is my doge. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
I don't even understand how she managed to make this face yesterday.
My standard poodle Macie and I about 8 years ago. She's still going strong. She's sweet as hell.
Lab Basset mix, big long body short legs. Still loves to hike and swim and live an outdoorsy life. Also has a fetish for laying by the firestove.
I have a question for shiba owners.
Do male shibas have a strong tenancy to take on that stockier look as they age, or is it more dependent on their lifestyle?
I'd like to adopt the breed, but I love the toned and slender look of the dogs, and wonder if that aesthetic lessens heavily in males as they age.
I suppose the question applies to females of the breed, as well.
She's a yorkie. Large for her breed though.
Sister's dog, but she's staying with us at the moment. She's a lot bigger now, but I don't have any more recent pics of her.
died an hour or so after taking this pic
15 years old. had her right throughout my whole teen/adult life. brought her with me everywhere l lived (am 31)
don't know what I'm gonna do now that shes no longer with me
I named this pupper Pupper.
I feel ya man. Most of us went through a loss like this before and we all know how hard it is. Just keep in mind that you gave that dog the best life it could ever imagine.
If you don't know what to do get a new dog. Not to replace her, but to make another one just as happy as you made her.
lurker coming out to say i am really sorry dude ): i had a cat that was with me for about 13 years, all throughout growing up and then becoming an adult. i was alone with him when he was euthanized. its the worst feeling in the world.
but i just want you to know that that was maybe 3 months ago now and it does get better. hope you start feeling yourself soon again. take care
first time on this board so if I'm doing the wrong thing just let me know
recently got my first dog as an adult, I got a German shepherd who was 19 months old at the time and the owner couldn't care for her anymore (I just don't think he wanted to, the state she was in, but that's another story).
Anyway my question is food related. The vet thinks she should put on a little weight but everywhere and everyone I talk to has different ideas on how much to feed her
basically just trying to find a pattern here so I don't try and overfeed her or god forbid underfeed her. The packaging on the food I have for her is suggesting between 400-600g per day but it seems so little, does that even sound like enough? Just lack of experience I guess
anyway, pic related is Rosie. she's a big wuss but people are scared of her
It depends on what you are feeding her as well as how much. I find that if I always keep my dogs food bowel full that know that it always there and just randomly eat though I have seen some dogs scarf down everything they can.
Get a good brand of food.
Fill up a bowl and see how much she eats during the day and adjust from there.
Also make sure she gets plenty of exercise
rottie (used to have a bond-brother) and our little staffy pig
>is that a labrador retriever? i dont know my breeds
Not that guy, but that's a golden retriever.
>what are they like as dogs anyway?
The best. Period. Loyal, smart, not aggressive, friendly, love water.
Kiddo, my little ankle biter. She's a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix. About 3 years. She's a pain in the ass lol.
>people say the same thing about my dog since he is a lean machine, but the breeder said it's alright to be lean
it's really better tbh, it's like with any other animal, being lean is recommended. of course not starving your dog but certainely that approach that it's bad for GSDs, malinois, and other working dogs to be "that" lean is complete bullshit, they're originally not very large, and pretty lean naturally.
over feeding just contributes to health problems and promotes dysplasia in earlier age
Here is dog. He has lost weight since then but he's a terrible picture taker most of the time. So we haven't gotten many good ones
Here is other dog. He's 12 but he still acts like a puppy. Tries to jump around but his joints hurt him sometimes :(
I can't wait until he's old enough to bring home. I don't even know what I wanna call him yet.
Found this dog when I was about to drive away. She was under my tire, and damn lucky to have stopped when I heard something. She was full of fleas. ;_;
Buddy, he's a shaved Schnauzer. Also rescued. He has a lot of seizures.
pls no bully
also, first time on /an/, this board looks nice compared to /v/, /k/ or /mu/
I only plan to shitpost on /v/
It's a place full of people with short fuses raging over trivial things, I won't talk shit about other people's doggos
I'll hope you do the same even though my dog is a pug, I noticed those weren't too hot here, but she's great and I love her, plus she's an amazing artist
Eh, I think pugs are pretty ugly myself, and they've got health issues out the ass, but it's your dog mate. I mean, the best dog I ever owned was a toy poodle, and most people tend to think of toy/small breeds as nothing more than yappy overgrown rats, so I'm not gonna judge.
This is him now. I was told to he was full jack russell but Im worried about the pointy ears.
This is him and my Dachshund together.
I think most people get mad about the idea of breeding them. Pugs are an awesome breed and we were fully prepared for him to be sick when we adopted Winston.
Thank god we haven't had many problems besides him having food allergies and my dad spoiling him with too many treats. 32 lbs at his highest. Hes down to 24 now.
As long as you know pugs are an unhealthy breed and not to antagonise people on /an/ I don't think anyone will have a problem with you owning one.
Cat on the left, proud descent of wolf on the right
Lila, 10 weeks in this photo, 11 weeks now. Tricolour Border Collie, sire was half huntaway (tragility) bred for agility from champions.
Had her two weeks nearly already will sit, lay down, leave it and will stay for about 8 seconds, fully house trained. Hates the collar and harness however.
Yes I have seen their skulls because autists like you sperg out and post gore anytime anyone mentions pugs.
Christ get over yourself. I said they are unhealthy and I'd never get one from a breeder.
But I'm sure you are going to try to say that I'm still encouraging people to get pugs and how I'm literally the devil for having one. I've seen this conversation a million times. I know you wont be happy until everyone puts their pugs down regardless of their actual health.
Yes I know I'm the one sperging out now but go fuck yourself anyway.
This is Kion. He's a rescue and he was never socialized with other dogs properly so he has to wear a muzzle in public.
He's the most affectionate dog I've ever met.
>He's the most affectionate dog I've ever met.
>has to wear a muzzle in public
Real protection is usually something that has to be trained in, and when you train it in, you normally include an off command, so any dog that has to be muzzled all the time in public is almost always outright aggressive.
Where was it claimed that he attacks every other dog on sight? He's protective and doesn't let dogs come too close, he wears the muzzle as a precaution. At home he's good with our other dogs.
But I guess bashing certain breeds because they can't fit in a purse is a norm for you.
>He's a rescue and he was never socialized with other dogs properly so he has to wear a muzzle in public.
Firstly, you're confusing protection with fear. He's not protecting you, he's worried about himself, don't be a retarded owner.
>as a precaution
So he's attacked other dogs in the past?
>At home he's good with our other dogs.
Yes and at home he's not scared and around the same dogs. That does not mean anything.
>But I guess bashing certain breeds because they can't fit in a purse is a norm for you.
Lol you're a fucking faggot, is that your response when someone makes a comment about your dog? I was basing it purely on the comments you made, i didn't even look at the photo.
Ps my dog is bigger than yours and has never attacked another dog. How about actually training yours you stupid fuck.
All dogs above 15kg have to wear a muzzle as required by law here. If I tell him to behave, he'll ignore the other dogs, but there is always a risk of other dogs running up to him. So he wears a muzzle.
He is 9 months old and I've had him for 4 of those months. Of all places I thought /an/ would be more sympathetic to adopted animals, but I guess "ausfaggots" and normies ITT would rather see a good dog die than be taken care off just because he's had a tough life.
>implying I said any of that
Oi you little bitch. All I said was that I agreed with the other guy about the irony of a dog with aggression issues towards other dogs that has to wear a muzzle being "the most affectionate dog".
Then you came in here getting all offended like a middle aged white woman, claiming fucking racism against your dog because it's a staffie.
Stop being a fucking victim, this is not facebook, no one has time for your shit.
He never bit anyone or anything, but I could claim that if one rushed to his side that he wouldn't. But I know enough to see a change in his behaviour when he sees other dogs. Not other animals, just other dogs. He's good with horses, cows, cats, guinea pigs etc.
Isn't it mandatory everywhere? I live in Serbia. Communal police fine people in ranges of 50 euros to 500 euros depending on where you are caught.
Medium to big dogs are required to be muzzled within city limits. Outside the city limits and in determined areas they can be unmuzzled but leashed.
Its easy to assume namefags to be the dumbest versions of attention whores on 4chan on account of them not even being able to trip. That being said, I'm done giving (You) attention.
I hear Denmark now has a restriction on like 20 dogs or so, it just became stricter. However I believe that in Norway and the UK only 4 dogs are banned:
Pit Bull Terrier.
The people who advocated for it are now against it in Norway, but it's way tougher to make something legal than make something illegal.
>So APBT are banned but Amstaffs aren't?
Nah, amstaff is banned too. It's a shame since they are such great dogs and beautiful
Sure, knock yourself out.
Back at home for the day visiting an old friend
My 11 years old female Pitbull x Rhodesian Ridgeback mix
His name is Oso (bear) and seems he has some of Old English Sheepdog. What do you think?
this is my dog Diego. he is kind of a rare breed I believe
he likes eating, 420 and being a pain in the ass
Haven't been to /an/ in awhile but here is my sheltie growing up. I used to post puppy pics about 7 months ago.
She is a derp.
princess the peke. she was a devil dog for halloween obvs. she enjoyed yapping at small children and making them cry today >:)
She is a Pit x something. If any anon can tell me what breed is besides Pitbull please let me know. I adopted her two years ago, she was six months at the time.
Zoey the mutt, she is a very nervous dog and acts weird when the camera is out. but she loves to chill in my room. she also loves to run around the backyard and bark at people walking by and she loves going camping.
This kid is such a baby. His name is Pope Francis, or just Francis. He's a mutt that my wife and I adopted here in Chile since there's plenty of strays out in the streets.
Here's another. I honestly have no idea what he has in him. He's like a mid-size lab or something. Really timid around strangers, but is such a baby with us here at home.
here's my dog, my mom just told me today she's not gonna last till thanksgiving
feels bad man
Getting one of these guys in a couple weeks
gonna name him Ein obviously
Corgi/Aussie. At least that's what the shelter told us.
D'aww. I grew up with a Sheltie. I just found some old photos of him from when I was a child too.
Lila again, last photo did no justice, 12 weeks now, super sleepy after her vaccinations
My little pupper. Miniature foxy x staffy (as far as best guesses go, found her abandoned)
bullshit. mine hated water. she was a sweety tho, so was my yellow lab and my beagle, altho the beagle does get loud for no reason. all loving dogs.
ive been thinking about trying a saint bernard, anyone have experience with them?
