RE: Posting on Craiglist
I contacted her. There are two names now, so not sure who she really is. She types like she is on crack or something. I wanted to see what she said about the red and white female since there were no pictures. It sounds like someone could get all three pretty easily for 300.00. I am in WA state, too far away to help but I could donate money to the cause if someone could get them into rescue.:mad:---

RE: Feral Cat Trapping
I guess that if you are seeing them that they must be weaned? If not you might catch the moma cat with fish and if you catch her most likely the kittens are within a couple hundred feet of her watching. Good luck was this and thank you for caring enough to do something good for them all! Bless you!
RE: Question on Submissive Wetting?
I thought I would quote the original one more time just so there is no misunderstanding or speculation on any of the information that has been provided so far.
What evidence is there that this dog came from either of the Puppy Mills that you have mentioned in your original post?
Just because the Puppy mills in the counties you mentioned were taken over by the authorities at a coincidental time does not mean that any shelter or rescue organization in the same area did not have other dogs that needed homes or placement.
Do you have any first hand knowledge other than the dog came from a rescue organization?
I guess I do not understand what your statement about you do not like to fail has anything to do with the dog in question.
As another person stated, if this dog is a rescue, unless there is some other agreement then the dog cannot be sold and it should be returned to rescue. With out reading the agreement that the current owners signed with Rescue none of us know for sure what the agreement is.
Can you identify the rescue organization?
You mentioned the first thing you would do is worm this dog. Well if the dog came from a responsible rescue organization, did they not make sure the dog saw the Vet and had a complete physical prior to adopting this dog out?
Wouldn't it be better to find out what this dogs medical records reflect first?
"We got her a collar and ID tag because they keep losing her in the neighborhood. "
Do you think this type of care and treatment would be within the rescue organizations guidelines and agreement?
I seriously think that someone needs to contact the rescue organization and inform them of what is really going on with this rescue dog. So if you really want to help and do something very responsible contact the rescue organization that they adopted the dog from and do the right thing. Housebreaking the dog for them is not going to help these people or the dog. There are bigger problems than PEE!
Yes this is true, I don't know anything for sure. I am just going on the owner's word that this was a pup from one of the puppy mill rescues and that they got her from a foster home. I am pretty sure I will get a 'mind your own business' from them if I ask which rescue they got her from. I will ask tonight though. Do most rescues come with a chip? I could get her to my vet for a scan…but not sure if I will just get owner info. or rescue info. from that. First, I will see if I can get an answer from them about rescue (which one) and then go from there. FAILING to me equals bringing her here for a month and not being able to help her with house breaking and in the process get attached to her and have it all be for nothing if I failed to do it. Thank you for your reply and common sense insight. I am a rescuer, a fixer! Looking at the big picture I don't want to enable them to keep on doing this.
RE: Cat with Thyroid condition and high blood pressure
On a different note about cats and thyroid problems. A couple of years ago I read that there was a huge increase in cat thyroid issues and they found that the fire retardent chemicals that were on some new carpeting was the cause and as I recall California had the biggest problem with this because of the fire safety standards in that state requiring all new carpet to have this treatment. I am not sure about other states in this regards though. I will check this out, I wonder if cats may be more prone to this because of they way they clean themselves, but also cats absorb from their feet and this is how fertilizers and pesticides poison them. I wonder if Basenjis also could have an issue with this because they clean themselves well. I am sorry about your cat and hope that treatment will be affordable for you.
RE: Question on Submissive Wetting?
Thanks Jennifer. This dog is very excited to see all people and other dogs and the little girl brings her over and pops her in our front door while she goes off and plays with my kids. She was in a foster home and she has been with this young family for almost 3 months now. She loves my GSD and cats. She wolfs food down like I have never seen before and I would worm her first thing to rule that out. I can't really remember when that whole PM thing went down but I am guessing around December. So, the fact that she loves people and dogs so much is really good I take it. We got her a collar and ID tag because they keep losing her in the neighborhood. They have no fence and no other pets. Most of my house is hardwood and tile, I could pull up the rugs so I wouldn't be so bothered by the mess. Maybe I should give this a try for her sake… Maybe I should get one of those metal puppy pens too. I really do have a problem with failing and I usually don't take things on unless I am 99% sure I can do it and do it well. I will think this over some more and talk to the owners about the possibility of her staying here for 3 to 4 weeks. What do you think about that? Could that be enough time to help her? OUR B puppy is 4 weeks old today! He is from Khani's and we will pick him up in 4 - 5 weeks! Very excited about this. Bryan from Jumoke's is having a training class and I will start class this Thursday w/o dog! By the way I am sorry if I offended anyone with the name Taco Dog. Yes, she is 1/2 Chihuahua and half Oscar Myer!
