Here's my pharaoh hound Skooli. He smiles, he blushes, he jumps sideways. Love that dog.

Just when you think you know everything, you learn something new. Never seen this breed but I love it. Very unique and beautiful dog.

I don't have a pic but I have a Boxer who's name is Fisher but we wound up calling him Fii Fii. I never liked dogs till I got him but he is my best friend ever. I too would give him years of my life to keep him around for the rest of mine. I love him dearly. I also have Lucy who is a American Bulldog or a Boxer/Bulldog mix. She is a street puppy who walked up the driveway of my car dealership. I usually run them away but I didn't have the heart to run her off. She was beaten and scared and pretty much a goner. Now she's my girl. I have to keep her at work but she gets as much love as I can give her.

Pics attached of my girl, the forever grateful stray Angelica.

Found her endlessly circling the rows of cars in a grocery store parking lot 11 years ago last Christmas Eve (after being evidently dumped by her owners).

Major one-owner dog (guards me like Secret Service).

Found out through testing her predominant breed is uncommon here in the U.S.: Black Norwegian Elkhound.

Kind of resembles a Black German Shepard (but she's only 48-pounds).

Here's Maggie, our female Great Pyrenees. We got her from the local humane society about three years back, if I recall correctly? I've had a few dogs, but trying to be objective as I can be as an owner, she is as close to perfect as I've seen. Good with people, great with kids, wasn't a chow hound (save for one time when we were having Indian food and she high-tailed it with a chunk of Naan bread), didn't bark for the first year or so we had her. I one time left her out and went to a football game; no big deal; no noise or complaints from the neighbours. Total sweetheart. Just wants to be your friend.image-390.jpg

And here's Carl. My girlfriend refers to Carl as "all boy". He drools, he farts, he drinks out of the toilet. Real lover of a dog, but takes a while to get warmed up to people. The first time my Mom visited after we got him, he growled at her for two hours. Then he decided they were friends, and slept next to her bed that night. Pyrenees are bred to protect sheep, so he views a lot of strangers as threats, and then he decides they're okay, and loves them. Seems he's smarter than me; for a little while, he'd start barking at 4:30 in the morning and wake me up (he has a HUGE bark; he was barking one day and I could hear him three or four houses down the street, and he was inside). So, I'd wake up, get him to quiet down, and go take a leak. By the time I was back from the can, he'd be sleeping in my spot in bed.

Love the daylights out of both of them.

I love my baby! She likes laying under my pins when I play them, and following me everywhere! People always yell "Hey Spuds" whenever we are at a stoplight in my truck.

Quoted from Blackjacker:

Guinness and Zoey, our goofball rescues.
Guinness was a bait dog, found wandering in a parking lot in Newark on St. Patrick's Day (hence the name). We actually were fostering him after the rescue got him back from the vet and after a couple of weeks we knew we couldn't let him go, so we adopted him. We don't know Zoey's backstory, but when she ran out of her foster home chased by the four Great Danes she was living with and into my son's arms, we knew she was ours.

That's a big crew! Good on you for taking in so many!

This is our rescue Chato. A Neopolitan mastiff. Previous owners bleached his eyes and broke his back legs to make him a bait dog. Considering what he's been through, he's a gentle giant.

Wow, great dogs. Love em all.

My boy Luke. Lost him in 2010 after a year long battle with cancer, and a personal hell I never wish to repeat. He meant everything to me.

image-969.jpg.

Luke taught his new little brother (Oscar) everything. They shadowed each other day & night.

image-267.jpg

image-925.jpg

image-516.jpg

Luke's last meal, a jar of peanut butter and a new rawhide bone. His body was riddled with cancer, and he had a leg amputated a few months prior. He could no longer stand and the vet said it was time. Effin agony.

image-753.jpg

So it's been four years now, Oscar is a gem. He has his own little brother to teach. Dexter is a bit special, half whippet/beagle. All sorts of interesting behaviors in this mix.

image-777.jpg

Dex's Mom dresses him up sometimes with custom bandanas and things like this:

Quoted from mrs_mezelmods:

The photog, www.valeriebruder.com, is wonderful - she donates a lot of her time and expertise to rescue organizations, photographing their dogs to help them find their forever homes.

We joked beforehand that we'd probably have lots of pics of Guinness blowing drool bubbles and Zoey darting out of frame - and in that pic we got both.

Quoted from eggbert52:

Many thanks Derron.

Strays are so helpless and vulnerable and need our help so badly--and they make the most loyal friends for life once in their forever home!

One trick I learned to help save Strays by gaining their trust is to keep some Kibble in a zip lock and paper plates in your trunk (that's how I got my girl in the car that day):

Served her a meal & did my grocery shopping, came out and she was still circling giant rows of cars endlessly looking for her owner (no tags of course or subsequent response to newspaper ad).

After a ton of coaxing with me in the back seat she still wouldn't jump in...had to pick her up eventually and put her in.

(If they're too scared to go with you and run off, just leave the much-needed meal...I've seen them double back and eat it!)

Now time for a Milk Bone (anticipation shot followed by all-biz/locked-on ).

Quoted from mrs_mezelmods:

She's great thanks--funny thing is I never even heard of a Black Norwegian Elkhound before her DNA test results came back! Wikipedia states the breed is very rare outside the Nordic countries of Scandinavia; breed link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Norwegian_Elkhound

BTW, if you're unsure about what breed your dog is, I highly recommend Wisdom Panel for DNA Testing:

http://www.wisdompanel.com/wisdom-panel-2-0/

It's only $79.99 and highly effective: all they had was a swab of my dog's saliva (no other information at all), and if you click on the Wikipedia link above, you'll see the dog in the link is a dead ringer for my girl!

It was so great to finally find out what she is (I always thought she was some kind of small German Shepard mix or something)!

image.jpgMy son and his dog. German short haired pointer. It's not my dog, but it's an awesome dog, and since I don't have one I call him my dog.

Note: no animals were harmed in the making of this picture, even though it looks like my son is killing him.
Sometimes the dog has the upper hand when he sleeps.

#137 7 years ago

Orson is a rescue too. He went through two familys because he was a PITA. We have had him for about 7 or 8 years, he definitely found the right crazy family.

I'll include Picts of my best buddy here. Fanta, my dog attended his first Pin A Go Go this year. I had him out each morning and took him back to the hotel after lunch. He's the sweetest calmest poodle ever. Some of you might have pet him there.image.jpgimage-992.jpg

#147 7 years ago

top dog pound pup.
he's a little bit of everything, like me & my 'ol lady
perfect match
he also thinks the Tron pin rocks, but can't reach the flipper buttons, so is a little miffed by that.

Quoted from dtown:

Our precious dachshund, Lance. He's 10 years old and has the typical back problems associated with the breed. Early last year, he temporarily lost the use of his back legs for almost three months. It was very tough but after a lot of rest, pills and cleaning up his poop bucket (a large Rubbermaid pan) he started to gain the use again. Now, the wife and I have to not let him get too excited because he'll run around like a nut. He doesn't realize his limitations. Winters are always the hardest but he made it through another one without an issue.

My dachshund is almost 10 and has ruptured a disc twice. Both times he lost control of his lower half. Check out VOM (veterinary orthopedic manipulation) and see if anyone does it around you. I got amazing results from it both times and he isn't in any pain now. It's been a few years since the last incident.

Dude, it's been one year to the day since Millie went in for a ruptured disc. Please to God tell me you're not letting him climb anything or jumping off of anything higher than a toothpick?

To everyone who owns a long dog like a Dachshund, Basset Hound, etc....take care of your dog early in its life. Do NOT let it jump off of couches, go up or down stairs, etc. Once in a while is fine but don't let it become a habit. Or, you'll end up like me and Winteriscoming.

Also, you'll be out $4-5K per pop. When Millie went in last year on the Sunday before Memorial Day, there were 3 other Dachshunds in there for the exact same surgery the day before Memorial Day. In addition, DO NOT WAIT! Your dog will have what is know as "deep pain." Your dog may not yelp or be in pain but they are. This is a VERY small window in which you must get him/her in for surgery. Khabbi can attest as well on this.
