We just got a female Doberman puppy 3 months ago when she was only 3 months old ..I felt so bad for her I cried the first day she was with us...kinda scratched my mother a lot but we have been working with her & she has gotten calmer now...just still not getting along with our other female miniature pincher!
Already contacted the trainer & he was here once with the dogs...she has had an eye infection so we have had her doing visits to & from the vet with eye drops...
I must say I have been so petrified of big dogs especially ones with a bad rep...(like dobermans & rotties & such...) but I must say...Its the people who raise their dogs to be violent whom give these beautiful animals a bad rep!
When my brother takes (Roxy, the doberman)out so many people are so scared & yell at us to keep the dog away...and that really breaks my heart...because if they only knew how sweet & loving she really is...especially how affectionate she is...kissing us it's just amazing...
How can people want these beauties put to sleep...just saddens me to tears...:(
We have three dogs, two were older rescues, one we got as a pup from a breeder. There is so many older dgs in need we felt it was important that we helped them out, yet it sure is nice to get a puppy that you can train from day on. We felt that as we did right hepng two older dogs we could treat ourselves to a puppy for the third.
We did the same with our cats. We got one oler stray cat who was in dire need of a home and than treated ourseves to one kitten.
I got both my dogs from abusive homes off craigslist. Both my dogs were chained up in a backyard for two years and beat badly. My oldest dogs hip was broken by her owner and my other dog was beat and burned with cigars by his owner. Both dogs are now housebroken, healthy, and loved. If I could I would save every unwanted animal on there. I would never buy from a breeder or pet store.
Try for a retired racing greyhound. They pretty much just kill most of them once they can't run anymore, and they're not treated the best while they can still race. There are programs that let you adopt them, sometimes for free, and all of the ones I've seen are sweet, never aggressive.
I am 100 percent against breeding dogs and cats. They are so over populated and the numbers that are having to be euthanized in animal shelters is distturbing. If you claim to love animals so much that you want one - youll adopt from a shelter and help to stop the breeding problem.
I love pits. We used to foster home for pits from our local shelter until they could find a home for them. I hate seeing such a sweet and lovable breed get put down because of a bad reputation, i wish i still had the time or room to do it.
Usually from the shelter or from people who don't want theirs anymore. The first dog we ever bough was this toy poodle of ours.
Random guy on the street corner :P. Or outa the local paper someone giving them away.
pound....its cheeper..and i feel like i did mii good deed for the day=)
We have a pit nobody wanted. He is sooo awesome!
We love strays because nobody does !
