You are probably not wrong sadly.
that’s terrible, I hope that’s not the case
Liking in agreement @Zombie Llama . People are terrible
We are already seeing the effects of unsocialized quarantine puppies
There was already a huge increase in aggressive/reactive/fearful/anxious dogs because people are fairly apathetic towards training their dogs properly. I worry about all these poor doggos.
We're getting a new puppy in August. We've been on the breeder's waitlist for this litter for months, so it's just how it worked out. I'm definitely worried about how to socialize, as normally I would have done puppy classes.
A neighbor down the hall from us has a 5ish month old, so I'm going to see if we can do some puppy playdates where the humans are socially distanced but the puppy can play with another (fully vaccinated) puppy.
@Erie I don't know a ton about them, but, have you heard of potcakes or looked into that avenue for adoption? They live in T&C and I think the Bahamas, and people volunteer to bring them to the US for adoption. It's still a type of rescue but not quite the traditional shelter adoption, so maybe something to check out!
I never have, but just googled! I’ll look into it.
Just a warning that a lot of those dogs come from off the streets and can be very shy and skittish in the beginning. Make sure your yard is very secure! They're flight risks because they get spooked and run.
Scout PR’d today and look at how happy this freaking dog is.
And the real reason I came here, does anyone have pet insurance that they’d recommend? from what I understand they don’t cover vaccines, wellchecks, or routine dental. Which is annoying but fine. I just wanna be prepared for the bigger costs if something happens. Also just found out I can vaccinate him for rattle snake bites so definitely doing that.
@Pickles we have Figo. It’s worked well for us so far.
@Pickles I love seeing how happy he is!
@ClamJam we're getting a tibetan terrier!
@ScaryPearls I am ready for pictures.
They're cute! Will post pictures once we have him. They're real furry, but apparently don't shed all that much. The long coats are so pretty, but I think we'll keep him in a lower maintenance short cut.
There’s one who does agility around here, he’s so cute! He’s so spunky on the course too, it’s fun to watch him.
Fry is delighted by our friend’s budgie, so she frequently sends us videos of his shenanigans. It’s a hand reared bird that has loads of personality, and I’m living for these videos as much as my kid is at this point.
I just want to #bragbrag that Purple and BIL and SILs dog are laying on either side of my legs. A Fitz sandwich.
Pretty proud of myself and of Ryder - a handful of fittings and adjustments without a single bite!
