Her lab/rotty friend
What is your dog like? There was a thread a few days ago about adopting a dalmatian, and some people said they can be mean and hard to train; but I've always heard that they were smart and easygoing. What has your experience been?
Yeah, I was in that thread, and I still wouldn't recommend a dalmatian for a first time dog owner.
Proper socialization is key, as is training. Without it they can become aggressive. They are most definitely a guard dog, so for them to be wary of strangers is normal.
The high energy thing is mainly when they are puppies, as they get older they stay active, but mine have always just kind of do whatever the owner is doing. If that is working outside all day or laying on the couch.
Proper research is important in selecting a breeder with quality dogs. If you buy from a byb you will get a dog that is harder to train and probably have more health issues.
These dogs are extremely intelligent and love to show off. I've had these dogs for over twenty years so I kinda know what to expect with them. If you are interested in the breed I highly suggest you check in to local clubs. Bear in mind a quality bred dalmatian is pricey these days.
I love your dog, I've never seen anything like her before!
To answer your question about>>2082044
I really don't know what she is, she and her siblings (most of them have long hair) were rescued by an animal rescue organisation form a dog-killing kennel (hopefully I translated that right).
Usually, stray dogs are brought there. So I guess the whole litter of puppies were found in the streets.
She is very smart and sometimes pretty stubborn also absolutely loves the water
Thought about getting a DNA test for her, but I'm not sure if it's worth the money.
After all, it wouldn't change anything..
but it would still be interesting to know
here's another pic of her
Our new puppy we believe to be a Dalmatian pitbull mix.
Our other two dogs are cavalier King Charles spaniels
And last week we put down one, not in picture, cavalier King Charles spaniel
he looks like a ball of energy!
Sweet pupper I had to leave with my family when I left for college. I miss her
Yeah, I hate trimming them. This was taken right before her yearly vet visit, I was waiting.
She also looks chunky here. She will put on a few during winter because she doesn't want to stay out at all. She drops it quick come spring when she can stay outside and run all day.
>Yeah, I hate trimming them
doesn't matter. go to a pet store and pay to have them trimmed. what you have shown us a picture of is abuse. it causes the animal constant pain and discomfort and leads to disorders of the bones, joints, and connective tissue in the feet and ankles.
I pay 8 dollars about once a month to get my dog's nails trimmed. You can't spare that? You think those nails are okay?
My sweet baby. Sadly I may have to give him up by the end of the month...
nothing worse than abusers who think their abuse isn't abuse.
do me a favor: attach something to the front of the bottom of your shoes so that your toes are lifted an inch off the ground. walk around like that for a while.
You know what, thanks for your opinion. I'll consider it. You looked at a pic of my dog and basically accused me of cruelty to animals. Because of anonymity I have no idea how old you are, what your qualifications, training, education or any thing else so I will consider that as well.
Did my dog need her nails clipped? Yeah.
Has the problem been solved? You betcha.
Here's a corgi mix.
We thought he was a borgi, but now we think he's probably a McNorbi
My hyper doge. What breed does she look like? She's 40 lb.
>You looked at a pic of my dog and basically accused me of cruelty to animals.
He's right you asshole. You don't need to be a vet to see those nails are fucked, and 'but I'm lazy' isn't an excuse. Ever.
Never said it was because I'm lazy. She bleeds quick, that is why. I do clip her nails, just not short, this is why it's a pain the ass. In the pic that was brought up yes, they were long.
My friend's gorgeous Aussie. He's crazy strong.
Look at that dark cuddly face
Oh no the poor pups what a beauty
Look at that guy he looks quite traveled
Dat doofy boxer dawwwe
Blue eyes like mine !
He looks fun as a mother fucker
Nice doge mines 35 lbs
Looks like a happy family
Love them austin sheps
Interesting eye. Looks like a gentle dude
Great doggos everyone keep em coming here's more of cleo
Get styptic powder for when you cut her quicks accidentally, and try cutting along the alternate cut lines to force the quick to recede.
The Nail Maintenance For Dogs group on Facebook is actually an excellent resource on getting unruly nails in check. Consider joining it to get some better information than you'll find on 4chan.
Letting your dog's nails get that long is cruelty, though, as it does put enormous strain on the joints in the feet and legs.
I clip my dog's nails weekly to keep them at the right length.
>Never said it was because I'm lazy. She bleeds quick, that is why
You are lazy because you can take your dog to a pet store or groomer and have the nails done for like 10 dollars or less. You don't have to do it yourself.
I called you an abuser because your lack of action on the nails CONSTITUTES ABUSE. In the picture you showed your dog hadn't had its nails cut for at least 6 months. Your dog was IN PAIN and DEVELOPING JOINT DISORDERS DUE TO YOUR INACTION.
SOMETIMES YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. FUCKING BELIEVE IT.
Incidentally, yes, I am. But nail care is extraordinarily important. It's like teeth. People let their dogs' teeth rot in their heads and then wonder why their dogs have to be euthanized when their jaws have decayed almost completely from infection. Nails and teeth should be part of basic dog care, just like food, water, shelter, and veterinary care.
any of you have experience with getting a dog from a reputable breeder? i've started looking into getting a corgi and it's getting overwhelming to even think about. as a broke college student i thought i'd put it off until i graduated but to even be put on the waiting list i feel like i need to have a house with a yard or something and previous dog experience and it's really disheartening.
ehh in my opinion it's better to find a pup or a young dog you connect with other than being put in line for one. corgi is an energetic breed not suited for college life unless you go out nad are active or you have yard for him.
my advice is keep looking also it doesnt hurt to look at shelters too man. there are alot of perfectly good dogs that are needing a home
forgot to add a pic
also i found cleo by chance i was originally dead set on an Australian shehpherd, but i opened myself to shelters too and found cleo and shes an amazing dog, loyal as all hell and smart too. shes a bit smmaller than an australian shep but she's great
This is my mutt Gracie. We think she's some kind of golden retriever/collie mix, but who knows.
And this is our other mutt, Molly. Once again we have no idea what she is, best guess is some kind of Boxer mix.
Your best bet is trolling the akc breed clubs. Find one in your area, strike up a conversation with the breeder referral person, and then talk to the breeder. Explain what's going on in your life, where you're planning on being, and they may be flexible with their lists. If you aren't in the right place when your name comes up, they may be able to work with you for when it is the right time. Better yet, find dog shows in your area and talk to the breeders there. Most of them are nice people, and if they aren't you just walk away
Thanks. So far so good. I took a month off to be with him and keep him on the right track, so hopefully it all pays off when I return to work next week. Pic is from today.
My Gsd cross lab Gizmo who is blind in one eye, but the most awesome dog ever!
