I just got an apple head Chihuahua that is about 2 or 3 and he is very afraid of me and my husband, found out that he was abused by a man and he tries to bite us not as bad as it was, is still very worried that we might hurt him, I haven't ever had a dog that was abused and not sure what to do. Please help. I just love him and is very sweet.

    I have an abused apple head, too. She didn't make a single sound for over a month. We thought maybe her voice box had been damaged. After lots of loving talk to her, and a flavored bone everyday, she finally barked. She's now very protective of my children as well. Once she gains your trust, she'll blossum. Don't give up!

    You don't give it shots for heartworms. They need the heartworm chew tablets every year just like flea and tick medicine every year.

    Heartworm are prevented with either monthly pill or monthly topical application - there isn't a shot... If you are using the proper prescribed meds for heartworm then you or your Vet should of contacted it manufacture..

    You should have given him heartworm preventative.

    Heartguard is a toxic to them. Interceptor is what they take for prevention of heartworms.
  • Racelle LaMar - 2014-07-25
    Ivermectin at high doses can be toxic in breeds such as collies, that being said- it is dose dependent. The dose in Heartgard is well below the dose which will cause issues and is not a problem.

    I don't know that it's a common problem, but they should weigh between 10-20 lbs. If they are over that, then it can be a problem because it can can exacerbate some health problems.

Hi everyone! I recently adopted an 8 week old Blue named Diesel! And the vet confirmed today that Diesel is 100% deaf in both ears. And although it is uncommon for blindness at an early age, it looks like Diesel may lose his sight before he is 2. My question is.. With him being so small and deaf, what is a good training program to start him on. I know some go by hand signals- but with his sight in question, I am looking for alternate training. Any help would be great!

    Wow, what an interesting pup, but it sounds like you have a unique challenge. I don't know for sure, but wonder if you can use physical signals with touch, like tapping his nose or head to sit, or something?
  • Lyn - 2015-04-29
    My red heeler went blind in her senior years. I used touch with her and she learnt very quickly what the different signals meant. She also went deaf after going blind but lived a healthy life for another two years and we had no problems communicating.

Hi, We researched the Havanese breed extensively before adopting Bentley who was a rescue, at 18 months. At the time of rescue he was 18 lbs, but his measurements are well within the range for the breed. He is now 21lbs and our Vet says he is not overweight. I understand that Havanese are being breed to be small / low weight. However Bentley is pure Havanese. He had been with three families and three shelters when we got him. He has been trained and performs various tricks. It took a couple of years to get his full coat in. We don't know what he went through prior to adoption, however he guards us fiercely against other dogs and strangers. He is extremely loyal, and only trusts strangers after a 2nd meeting.

Just took in a 2 year old female Chug from a shelter. She is an amazing dog! 12 pounds of funny, sweet, cuddly, love. She has brought so much love. She rarely barks, and at that, the bark sounds like a sneeze. She is pretty funny looking, big eyes with the classic pug wrinkles, flat nose on the end of little snout, and what an under bite! Her bottom teeth usually peek through her lips. Folks cant help but smile when they see that adorable face. I always had larger dogs, but am not strong enough to walk a big dog anymore. She is a blessing!

    Hi, I have signed for a 3 years old chug and is scheduled to come home (to me)by next week. I am wondering how your Chug has adjusted? Any health or gum disease issues? What food & how much does she have? Weight? Also, if you have any other advices that will be helpful. *How long of a walk can she go for? Thanks in advance for the response.
