Good advice, Rue.
Some dogs are just plain stupid, as well. I could put my hand under my Yorkies face, making him look at me, and just say NO and that was it. He was so smart and caught on so fast. My Shepards were very smart and learned very fast, too. But I had a Malamute and a Red Setter that were the most stupid dogs God put on earth. But......they were older when I got them and the last time I accepted a full grown dog someone didn't want. Didn't take me long to not want them either!
Dogs pay the price of people not training them properly when young.
People also need to get dogs suited to them and their enviroment. All puppies are cute but they grow up. A hunting dog or a greyhound stuck in an apartment is not cool or a St Bernard or Huskie living in the heat of FL. Or me getting a Jack Russell. LOLOL

People often think that mals and huskies are dumb but they are some of the truly intelligent breeds. They are bred for their independence and decisiveness as working dogs, which makes them harder to train in a home setting.

Doesn't help that he had been neglected for years. He kept digging at his neck and I could feel a lump so took him to the vet and he had an imbedded collar!!!!! You could not even see it and it had probably been inbedded for years. He probably had been tied up to a dog house all his life.

How awful LH. That poor, poor animal. I don't understand how people can do such things to innocent, and loving souls. It's the same as children if you ask me. If you don't want them, and won't take care of them then DON'T TAKE THEM. People are ridiculous and callous. I MUCH prefer my animals to people.130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 17 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

Oh man! Just hearing that is enough to make me want to cry. Having a well-fitting collar is so easy, cheap...and just basic...how can anyone neglect such a 'small' thing to the point the animal is injured?55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
