My two are the nicest dogs with people, but one is aggressive with other dogs.

I started fostering dogs for the local rescue when my"heart" dog Tessie died at 16 in December. I'm not a pro for sure; I walk through the kennel, and pick the old, shut down dogs that have been there a long time and never had a foster. I love to see the dogs come back to life and be loved, maybe for the first time. <BR> I would love to find some friends pursuing the same goal and sharing the same interest. I have 100 lbs to lose to get healthy. Thanks. Mon, 12 Oct 2015 15:52:49 EST Meet Teddy... I had to rejoin cause I found a little guy all should know about..

Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> So...I've changed my profile picture to one with Miss Lily's Lovely Tail - that's only half the story though. That's what it looked like when I took her home from the shelter and for at least the first 1-2 years thereafter. She is part Maine Coon- no doubt about that. Well sometime after that, around 1 1/2 -2 years ago (I have her 4 years), she went through what I call a moulting - just of her beautiful tail. I watched as it went from glorious to pathetic.

I've had my Rocky for almost a year. He was approx 1.5 yrs when we adopted him and he was newly neutered at that time. <BR> All the training videos and books I find are mainly geared to puppies and how it's so important to train when they are young! But what about the older dogs that you have no idea of their background? <BR> I've trained him to sit, heal, and he's crate trained. <BR> But he's a terrible jumper and still marks in the house!

We were not told he had severe separation anxiety and believe this was the dog from hell. He would bark and nip your calves if you even went near the door. If you dared to get out the door, he would rip blinds out of windows trying to get to you. Our vet told us to take him straight to pound and let them put him down. We tried giving back to rescue, they would not take him back. We decided that we had...
