Puppy Place > Foster Failing
Romeo

I pee in corners- occasionally
 
 
Barked: Fri Apr 18, '14 11:35am PST 
I got my foster puppy, Romeo, almost 3 weeks ago and I'm smitten. He was 1 of 7 from a feral litter found living under a shed. There was an instant bond and he just fits in so well with everyone else in the house, though the cat is less than impressed by being chased and forced to play ball lol. He is around 6 months old and possibly a GSD mix, very intelligent and has picked up on basic commands and housebreaking exceptionally well. I saw his momma dog and she was a true Heinz57. Maybe Akita, GSD, Pyrenees something? I should have taken a picture of momma dog but I was too preoccupied gathering all the supplies I'd need to foster -_-
We're still working on socialization, I can do anything to him and he loves it (cradle him like a baby, put eye drops in, touch his feet/ears, etc.) but he is still leery of being touched or handled by strangers. He's been coming to work with me and all my co-workers have fed him and interacted with him but he still prefers not to be touched, though does fine around people otherwise. I'd like it if he would eventually accept a friendly stranger but he likes me just fine so I'm ok with him preferring to be admired without touching lol.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Ulu Needs A Siberian Husky Rescue
Kye

SIBERIAN HUSKY RESCUE NEEDED!
We are located in Grande Prairie, AB, Canada but for the right rescue/owner transportation is not a problem.
If you are interested in adopting Ulu you can contact Tammy Brooks via e-mail at training@gpspca.com

I am currently fostering Ulu until a rescue or home can be located. She isn't up for general adoption but adoption would be considered for the right owner.

The ideal home for Ulu would be one with an ACTIVE owner who is willing to put the work and time into training and exercise. Ulu is a high energy girl, we've had her running with the quad for around 10-20 KMs a day and that seems to be her minimum amount required to get a calm sleepy dog in the house.

Ulu is good with other larger dogs but may be too rough for smaller breeds. She is currently living with one cat but is not allowed off leash in the same room as she gets a little too interested in him so a home with no cats, or small animals, would be best.
She has a tendency to be very grabby with her mouth when touched certain ways or lead by the collar so a home with no children or older children (16 ) is ideal. She would need a very dedicated person who is willing to work on her for this problem. My room mate and I have had a lot of success so far with her but she still needs a bit more work.

She has a sweet personality and loves to be close to her people. We have started crate training her and other than being a bit vocal at night when she's alone she does very well. She does need a bit more work actually getting into the kennel. She already knows sit, lie down and shake both paws. Stay is 50/50 and she doesn't grab food out of your hands, which is nice. Overall a really great girl, just needs a rescue or owner who has the time and knowledge to work with her.

Siberian Husky > Siberian Husky Rescues In Canada and the USA

Kye

I'm like- Einstein only- hairier.
 
 
Barked: Mon Jan 6, '14 4:41pm PST 
Hey there everyone! I recently took in a Siberian Husky as a foster dog and we are searching for a breed specific rescue who would take her. She needs a bit of work with a few behaviors and cannot be adopted out by our local shelter so either an experienced Sibe owner who is looking for a great girl to work with or a rescue who would give her a second chance at a great home is what we're looking for.
Does anyone know of any really good Siberian Husky rescues out there who are currently accepting dogs? Canada is preferred but the right rescue in the US isnt out of the question.

Ulu is 10 months old, more than likely spayed, and good with medium/large dogs of both genders. Ulu would not be good in a home with small animals, cats or children.
More info on Ulu:

Thanks for any ideas guys!!

I did some research into Bosley's post about SleepyPod being the only one that is actually crash certified and have decided to return my Canine Friendly harnesses and order a SleepyPod. Only $10 more than I paid for my CF Harness and I know it's a good quality.

Thanks for posting that Bosley!!

I recently hit a moose with my dogs in the car, they weren't belted in and thankfully were 100% OK but the first thing I did when I got my new car was buy them safety harnesses which they now wear all the time. I got mine at Global Pet Foods. They are made by Canine Friendly and are crash test certified, you can use it as a harness for walks as well. Expensive but totally worth it, the whole harness is nice quality and they come in a wide variety of sizes and are adjustable.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section... couldn't decide where I should put it D:

My neighbors have a guest (a friend of the wife's who had been kicked out of her boyfriends house when they broke up) who has a Pit Bull x Boxer dog. The dog itself is delightful from what I've seen if not a bit high strung. I have never heard the dog bark either, and I'm connected to them (I live in a townhouse)
My problem is the owner!! I was putting my stuff in my car to head to work the other day and she has her dog on a leash in the common area out front by the visitor parking area. Her dog does her thing and the owner just stands there, her dog finishes and she starts to walk back to her house. I call out with "Do you need a bag to clean up after your dog? I have some if you do," to which she shoots me a dirty look and replies "I have some, thanks." Her tone was so snarky, which pissed me off right away.
I got into my car and headed to work after that so I didn't see if she had picked up her dogs waste but I went and had a peek when I got home from work to find her dogs feces still sitting there. I had seen a lot of unpicked poop and couldn't figure out who it was, it was WAY too big to belong to the Maltese and Pomeranian that live a few houses down.
Then today I'm out letting my two dogs go to the bathroom when an older lady with her grand-kids told me that someone on the end row of the townhouses asked her "if she knew the lady with the two dogs or knew where she lived" which could either be that someone gets irritated when I call my dogs too loudly (I dont think I do, really I only have to call at 11am when they go out, they get really excited about the overnight smells but their recall is way better after they do their morning investigation. I don't yell continuously either) or that they think it's me not cleaning up after my dogs.
I'm really worried that this mystery person thinks it's me not picking up after my dogs! We have a Condo Association and I'm afraid that if this continues they will vote to disallow dogs. Should I call the Condo Association and formally complain about my neighbor? It's unfair of one person (who doesn't even live here!!) to ruin it for the rest of us responsible owners that make sure our dogs are good neighbors too.

It's kinda been stressing me out shrug

Honestly my guys are usually off leash in the 'heel' command lol. If I'm walking in town with them (I have 2 btw) they have separate leashes but both walk on the right hand side big grin

I think a Shi Tzu, Bichon, or Havanese might be worth looking into as well. I know many shelters have a lot of Shi Tzu and Shi Tzu mixes. They are all fairly even tempered dogs and typically great with other animals.

As for the pugs I'd have to agree that they require a lot more maintenance than other small dogs.
