    Sarcoids - Young gelding

    Actually I do. You are simply displaying your narrow mindedness. And why did you pm me? Because you have done a search of the forum and know I have used thuja tablets and ointment. I posted that you had pm'd me because frankly it is concerning that because you are afraid of hearing things you...

    Sarcoids - Young gelding

    People do have empathy and are open minded from what I have read on this thread - a lot of people with lots of different experiences have given you a lot of information. It does come across a little, rightly or wrongly, that you don't wish to listen to those recommending that you listen to your...

    Dalmatians - help and tips in choosing a breeder and pup

    Thank you! I'm looking into breeders at the moment and am hoping to go and visit a few over next few weeks. I'm quite excited about having a spotty best friend with me every day :-)

    Dalmatians - help and tips in choosing a breeder and pup

    I can't message you for some reason - can you message me first so I can reply? I'm in Norfolk, just south of Norwich. My preference is for a bitch. The long held dream was to have a black spot from a pup, but I will consider older ones but they have to be cat friendly and people friendly.

    Dalmatians - help and tips in choosing a breeder and pup

    Thanks :-) I'm aware that a lot of indiscriminate breeding went on after the films came out and it lead to negative traits in some dogs as you have described. Apart from health, temperament is very important to me, so I will be making sure I see the parents in home environments and also any...

    Dalmatians - help and tips in choosing a breeder and pup

    Thanks all. I had looked at champ dogs but I hadnt heard of it as a website and so wasn't sure how much I could rely on it. I'll have a good gander this weekend, and I'll also check out the forum. Thanks for the piccies too - they are all beautiful! I've got in mind that I would prefer a...

    Dalmatians - help and tips in choosing a breeder and pup

    Well I am finally in the position where I can get a dog! My job is changing and as a result I will now be in a position to give the time to a dog, as I have always wanted to. There are two breeds I am interested in, but the long held dream for me has been a dalmatian. I have done a lot of...

    Thanks slinks. That's ace. I'll be using that...and BWa, we'll see what it takes but that will be coming out at some point. It depends on how stupid they wish to be as to how quickly my claws start coming out. Jessica - who is the mp for your area? That is also a good way to get some...

    Stressed

    Thanks all for help - keep it coming. One thing that would help is looking into feeding guidance for neglected horses. General advice is "slowly but surely" to avoid colic etc but if there is any online guidance or notes from rspca or other more horsey institutions that would be great. I'm...

    Jessie did they leave you improvement notices? Any and all of those are integral. Also request copy of vet file on him. Can any other forum users help me out?This will be fairly big in terms of research in terms of their powers. I've already been through the animal welfare act 2006. Can a...

    PM me absolutely everything. Whole history, details of anything you have in writing, pictures, details of phone calls (when who etc). I'll speak to friends who are barristers. When vet comes out, get her to note weight tape and ask her to bring records with her of when he was first seen...

    Ok. I can't guarantee anything. I am based in Norfolk so Colchester is close (ish). Can you get an indication of when rspca will be coming out and/or apparently enforcing the pts? If I am able to take the day off work, I'll come down to you and be there as a legal advocate for you. I am not a...

    What would you do if your dog bit you?

    I honestly don't know anymore that what I've posted about them. I did suggest to them about considering another trainer as fresh eyes if you like, but that isn't a knowledgeable dog person speaking! I also agree that the dog will pick up on the uneasiness or one of them not wanting him. Tough...

    What would you do if your dog bit you?

    I agree with a lot of the points made. The rescue have said that he would have to be returned to them if they can no longer have him as it is a clause in the contract and have offered to because they are concerned they got him wrong. The rescue apparently said (I've heard this second hand and...

    What would you do if your dog bit you?

    I got talking to someone earlier this week and something they said made me stop and think about it. They got a rescue dog which from outside appearances seems like a lovely dog to be around. Friendly, likes to play etc. However, all is apparently not as I thought. If dog is doing things he...

    Boxer x lab update + any last minute cat/dog introduction tips

    Just as an update, thought you'd like to know that the boxer x lab is coming to his new home tomorrow. All research has been done, every last possible thing has been bought and he is booked onto dog training classes. He passed his cat test, although a little more work is required. The plan...

    Opinions on boxer x lab

    The legislation is ridiculous. How on earth can it be applied properly if it makes no sense? The mind boggles at how ludicrous that is. A law needs to be in place, but surely it should clear. And yes, I agree that there are problems in any country. I wasn't saying his treatment, whatever it...

    Opinions on boxer x lab

    Thanks for all the information, it makes for interesting points. Dogs trust have said that they and the vet believe him to be boxer x lab due to the way he looks and his markings, as opposed to anything else - although aware that as a stray his background won't be fully known. Apparently...

    Opinions on boxer x lab

    Don't shoot the messenger. I am passing on what dogs trust told him. They said he was a stray. How or why he came here from a pound in Ireland, I don't know. I will ask. I'm aware of situations where strays have cone in with their mums, so it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I would think it...

    Opinions on boxer x lab

    Hi, thanks for the reply. He is definitely boxer x not staff (hard to explain but have to see him to understand! ) and came in with his mum who is pure boxer. Believe the rescue said they came to them from a pound in Ireland. Beyond that I don't know a huge amount more. He is lovely. Nice...

    Opinions on boxer x lab

    Asking on behalf of someone else who isn't a member of the forum. They have been to a few local rescue centres and one dog put forward was a 3 year old boxer x lab who was a stray. Lovely looking boy (think mostly lab head with boxer forehead and facial markings, smaller boxer body with a lab...

    Where to advertise for a sharer?

    Has anyone got any bright ideas about where to advertise? I put one in a local tack shop, at my yard and on a Facebook horse group (which I will do again) but I've either had unsuitable people reply or no one at all. I'm thinking I need to cast my net a bit wider but I'm not sure where...

    Where to look for a competition (dressage) share?

    Where did you put your wanted ad? I am looking for a sharer but weeding the mostly unsuitable people out is tiresome and I was thinking of going through wanted ads but didn't know where to start. P_P - I know Bailey isn't what you are after in terms of being estate, but I just wanted to make...
