  1. This is horrible! Thankfully all “babies” were rescued. I so hope this jerk gets the “book thrown at him”. The kids were old enough, why didn’t they let the dogs have water or food? Hopefully they won’t grow up with their “Dad’s” attitude toward animals! It’s too bad that we can’t tie “him” up with any water or food – even if it’s only a few days. Remember the judge that opted for the woman that had starved her animals to death to live on just bread & water for a few days? She was so fat that she probably didn’t suffer, but at least it got a lot of reaction from the public.
  2. I know the TV, stereo and everything else in the truck wasn’t mine. There would be “No Way” anyone could have entered my house without me being home & get out in one piece. I would be wondering what type of bloody mess they had left me! My house is old & I have had to have a lot of major repairs. The roof, basement, sewage problems & the list goes on. Since I live on a busy road right off the interstate we get a lot of traffic. Many people stop if they are having the same problem & ask “how the contractor’s work is, what they are charging, do I like their work – etc
  3. Both Hunterr & Annie “Love” their greenies! I have never had any problems with either of them “throwing” up afterwards, just major diarrhea after having too many. Annie opened the “treat” cupboard & ate the whole sack when I was at work. :-? Now I have a dead bolt on the door. But neither dog will break off any portion to swallow. I can tell by the green foam they have covering the mouth. When I was younger we had a miniature dashound. But she was also trying to swallow her food & even treats whole. I wouldn’t give a hard treat to any animal that insists on not chewin
  4. Poor Baby & Poor you! I’m sending many positive prayers that everything will be fine with Cheech. Please let us know what you find out! Sending Mastiff Hugs & kisses your way Linda & Annie
  5. No wonder the poor dog weighed 300 lbs! If he was fed 30lbs a day of food!! I can’t imagine any animal (even forced) that could put that much food down! My Angel Love (English) weighed 208 lbs & 32” at the shoulder. She would only eat about 2 – 2 1/2; cups of food a day. I would leave her food out all day to allow her to eat when she felt like it. Too bad it wasn’t “Angel” the anchorman was interviewing! I’d made sure he got the “slob” treatment for calling her a “horse”!! :evil: :lol: Linda & Annie
  6. Yes! You could be right about Annie’s short fur & not “seeing” it standing. With her tail – it’s always wagging & up in the air, kind of curved towards the ceiling? Sometimes when she is in the back yard & sees something she doesn’t like – she will put her tail out like a flag – but it’s not wagging. So stupid me :cry: - thought this was the sign I had to look for “before an attack”! I might have misled everyone in thinking that Annie recently attacked before the “dreadful” night. She hasn’t, it’s been about 2-3 months. But then again I was always on guard & paying atte
  7. Thank you all for your help! I will definitely look for the 2 books that were recommended! Do you think I can find them on the internet? If not I’m going to see my Daughter next week in Columbus & maybe she might know where I can pick them up. I do love both my dogs, but don’t want to do something “stupid” to put either of them in any type of danger. I don’t think I could live with either of them getting hurt because I wasn’t smart enough to “read” the signs or understand what should be done to prevent it from happening. Sorry for being so emotional, but they aren’t “just Dog
  8. Thanks ‘pyrless” for the contact! Annie is the Neo & Hunterr a Belgian Malinois. O.K. now I know I can’t even read the body signs of a dog! On Hunterr – his tail would go down & so would his head – a little. Then I knew to “watch him”. On King (another aggressive baby that passed away) his tail would go straight out (sort of like a flag) & his ears would be sort of tilted back. Not flat to the head but maybe about an inch & ½ from being straight up. . With Annie I’m missing any signs that she might be giving out. Her nubby tail is waggy all the time & doesn’t seem
  9. Angel would run in her sleep. Many times I would wake to having her kicking her feet into my back! Now that is a hard “wake-up” from a 208 lbs baby! Angel also would snore with her eyes open. It was scary to look at her (thinking she was awake looking at you) & then realizing she was still asleep when she let out a “floor shaking” snore. Linda & Annie
  10. Hunterr is fine! He was a “little” shaky after the attack. What I mean – when he gets nervous his back legs will shake. But he “acted” normal otherwise & was happy to the point of running to grab his “Teddy” & wanted me to play with him! I don’t “think” Hunterr was even trying to retaliate in grabbing Annie back. Annie is so quick. There is never any warning such as hair standing, ears changing positions, & her tail is always up in the air!! One minute she acts like she is just standing there (or walking past Hunterr) & the next minute she had a hold of Hunterr’
  11. I admit that the “attack” was totally all my fault!! Annie wanted outside around 3:00 a.m. I had left them both out around 11 (their normal time) but stayed up trying to get some book work finished. When I went to bed– Annie was still in the family room sound asleep – so I figured I didn’t need to go though the “hassle”. Anyway, normally I can let both dogs outside together to potty since Hunterr “hates” the cold & will get what he needs done – fast & runs back inside. Annie is a different story – sometimes she refuses to come in without a bribe of a treat. I know I’m reinforcing
  12. Annie thanks you all for the great comments. I think she was actually blushing. :oops: And Thanks for posting her pictures! I’m new at this – can’t you tell?? When I adopted Annie last Dec. she was great with both Angel (English) & Hunterr for about 3 months. When I was home, I could allow all of them loose without any problems. During play time outside, I would allow Annie & Hunterr out together & they played great even if Annie would get a little rough at time since she was still a puppy. Angel (being older - almost 8 yrs) didn’t enjoy the rough housing & had her “
  13. Hi! I just found your site & was wondering if anyone could tell from Annie’s picture what breed she “really” is?? Annie was in a vet hospital where her previous owners decided they didn’t want her any more at the age of 18 months. She had been very abused to the point of hearing loss (my vet thinks to blows to her head because of old scars). The person that contacted me about Annie & asked if I would take her – the hospital couldn’t find anyone to adopt & were going to put her down. Said she was an English Mastiff. When they drove Annie to my home – I knew she wasn’t Eng
