Are you considering a small dog for
your household but aren't sure which
one is right for you? Let us help! As an ex-breeder, certified canine specialist, dog writer and dog person, I'll share everything I've learned over the years. It's important to remember that a Toy breed is a small dog (generally less than 10 pounds), but he's not a "toy." He is a full-fledged dog requiring training, grooming, exercise, medical care, time

Most welfare organisations also have information on caring for your pet.

    Specific agricultural practices for discussion: Note: The following situations, which each involve relatively specific management issues in farm animal welfare in the United States, are all based on information in Bernard Rollin's Farm Animal Welfare: Social, Bioethical, and Research Issues (Iowa State University Press, 1995). 1. The sow with a broken leg
      On p. 11 Rollin quotes the following moral dilemma from the Canadian Veterinary Journal: "You (as a veterinarian) are called to a 500-sow farrow-to-finish swine operation to examine a problem with vaginal discharges in sows. There are three full-time employees and one manager overseeing approximately 5000 animals. As you examine several sows in the crated gestation unit, you notice one with a hind leg at an unusual angle and inquire about her status. You are told, 'She broke her leg yesterday and she's due to farrow next week. We'll let her farrow in here and then we'll shoot her and foster off the pigs'." Then Rollin writes: "I spoke to the veterinarian who had experienced this incident, a swine practitioner. He explained that such operations run on tiny profit margins and minimal labor. Thus, even when he offered to splint the leg at cost, he was told that the operation could not afford the manpower entailed by separating this sow and caring for her . . . " Question: Should immediate euthanization of such animals be required by law? Why or why not?

    Cosmetic Surgery in North America and Latin America Alice Crook Canada This paper summarizes legislation, position statements, and veterinary attitudes regarding cosmetic surgery in North America and Latin America. Practices under consideration include ear cropping, tail docking, and debarking (devocalization) in the dog, and declawing (onychectomy) in the cat. LEGISLATION In Canada, the only jurisdiction with specific regulations concerning these practices is the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Animal Protection Act stipulates: “A person who cuts or crops the ear of a dog mistreats an animal.”(1) In the United States, some states restrict the amount of the ear that can be cropped. In Maine, the cropping of a dog’s ear is prohibited and constitutes unlawful mutilation.(2) In Argentina, according to the 1954 law on the protection of animals, it is considered an act of cruelty to “mutilate any part of an animal’s body, unless it is for the improvement, marking, or hygiene of the species, or is performed as an act of mercy.”(3) However, this is not interpreted to include ear cropping or tail docking, which are commonly done in Argentina.(4) EAR CROPPING AND TAIL DOCKING Position Statements The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) opposes ear cropping and tail docking in the dog for cosmetic purposes (Appendix I, a). The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) encourages veterinarians to counsel owners about the risks and lack of medical benefits before agreeing to perform these procedures (Appendix II, a).

    Breed Specific Legislation (revised 6/28/2001) This is by far the most difficult page for me to write. That is probably why I am tackling it last. Before I begin, I will forewarn the reader that my opinion on this issue is not the most popular one. My opinion has formed through observations as a Veterinary Technician and is based on a far more authoritarian cultural background than most Americans can fathom or accept. I also think that some of the people who have expressed vehement disagreement with my opinions do not listen to the whole story and don't approach the problem objectively. Either way: this is my website and I feel compelled to express my opinion in all honesty, rather than coating it with sugar for the faint of heart. Let me request though, that you finish reading this page before sending me e-mail (should you be inclined to do so). The state of animal well-fare is far from perfect in this country. There is an ingrained mindset of having rights to own pets (and children for that matter), whether one can care for them or not. People will call us at the clinic and demand free services for their dog. These people have more children than they can afford and have added a dog or two to the mixture. We have been told that children have the right to own a pet and that we are irresponsible for not picking up the slack. I could ramble on and on, but the bottom line is: things are not perfect over here. There is no real legislation to protect animals and much less is that little bit of legislation being enforced.

    Current California Dangerous Dog Law
    Proposal for Amendments to the California Dangerous Dog Law CHAPTER 9. POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS, ANIMAL AGGRESSIVE AND VICIOUS DOGS Article 1. Findings, Definitions, and General Provisions 31601. The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
    (a) Potentially dangerous and vicious dogs have become a serious and widespread threat to the safety and welfare of citizens of this state. In recent years, they have assaulted without provocation and seriously injured numerous individuals, particularly children, and have killed numerous dogs. Many of these attacks have occurred in public places.
    (b) The number and-severity of these attacks are attributable to the failure of owners to register, confine, and properly control vicious and potentially dangerous dogs.
    (c) The necessity for the regulation and control of vicious and potentially dangerous dogs is a statewide problem, requiring statewide regulation, and existing laws are inadequate to deal with the threat to public health and safety posed by vicious and potentially dangerous dogs.
    (d) Animal-aggressive dogs have proven very useful to citizens involved in hunting, vermin control, livestock management and law enforcement, and are often used by property owners to protect their persons and property from wild and feral animals. Some dogs trained to fight other animals have been re-trained and re-conditioned to remove their aggressiveness toward other animals. However, when trained to attack human beings or for illegal purposes, animal-aggressive dogs are a serious danger to the safety and welfare of citizens of this state. Animal-aggressive dogs are not suited for attack-training and should therefore not be owned, possessed or trained to attack human beings.

    We are wolf advocates . Part of our mission is to help protect and responsibly promote the wolf in the wild. As a result we do not support improperly managed wolf reintroduction efforts. We stand against wolf hunting and trapping; as well as all things that negatively impact the wild and free wolf. We are wolfdog advocates . Wolfdogs are a man-made creation, created solely for the ego of humans. As a result we cannot/will not support or endorse any wolf to dog, wolf to wolfdog, wolfdog to dog, or wolfdog to wolfdog breedings. Nor do we support the breeding of captive wolves for private ownership. We neither support nor advocate the purchase of any wolf or wolfdog, pup or adult. We do however, support the efforts of well-run rescues to help those animals in need of rehoming; and will support through education the proper care of already existing captive wolves and wolfdogs either in rescue or owned by individuals. We advocate spaying and neutering We do not advocate broad-based breed specific legislation . We do however believe that since the companion animal community cannot/will not control/police itself, that some form of serious regulation needs to be in place to ensure the welfare of companion animals.

    Dear Members of the Board of the American Rottweiler Club,
    It looks to me like the AKC is asking for people to send in letters, faxes and e-mails to the President of American Airlines; and that asking Teri if she has not printed the newsletter and has space to print this would be a TIMELY and good thing FOR OUR BREED to do.
    Am. Airlines Update: AKC Acts; Your Help Still Needed
    [Thursday, September 12, 2002] In August, after an incident involving a "pit bull" puppy who had escaped his crate and damaged the cargo hold of an American Airlines flight, American Airlines imposed a breed-specific policy banning Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Bull Terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers and any mixed-breeds containing one or more of these breeds.
    There is no scientific basis for breed-specific policies, and no animal welfare organization in the country supports such policies. In addition to the American Kennel Club, breed-specific policies are opposed by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the National Animal Control Association, the National Animal Interest Alliance, and countless other well-regarded national organizations who have expertise in animal behavior and welfare. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the government agency responsible for compiling bite statistics, was part of a task force that issued a report on the fallacies of breed-specific legislation.

A Tiffany sculpture and $500 monetary prize will be presented at a special general session, this Saturday, July 13 at the AVMA Annual Meeting held in Nashville, Tennessee. The AVMA Humane Award is the only AVMA award presented to a non-veterinarian. It recognizes exceptional compassion for animal welfare and humane efforts on behalf of animals. "Steve's efforts to accurately and professionally communicate animal health-care needs is truly appreciated by the AVMA, its members, and the pet owners they serve," said Dr. James H. Brandt, President of the AVMA. As a syndicated columnist and radio host, Dale touches the lives of millions of pet owners every day. His bi-weekly syndicated column, "My Pet World," is featured in more than 100 newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune The Detroit Free Press and The Atlanta Journal and Constitution.

    If you are interested in a specific breed, you should check these rescue associationsout before going to a breeder, and certainly before going to a pet store
    The listings below are for the all-breed shelters, humane societies and rescue leagues in the DC area, most of which have dogs posted on their site. Whenever possible, Lucky & Shelby have created an "adoption event" link for each site to take you straight to their page on local events that they host where you can go check out the doggies. Shelby requests that you please consider adopted an older dog. Shelby was 11 and was one day from being euthanized when she was adopted. She's almost 14 now and in excellent health, and has become the grand dame of Chevy Chase. Many dogs, with good care, can easily live well into the teens. It's the greatest feeling to know you've saved a nice senior citizen. Also, you always know that their wagging tail is completely sincere. If we've missed a local shelter or rescue organization, please email Lucky and Shelby Washington DC Area Breed Rescue The listings below are for the rescue associations in the DC area that specialize in specific breeds. Some may not be headquartered in the DC area, but have references for dogs that are being fostered in the DC area. In most cases we link you straight to their directory page where you can look up a local contact. Some of these rescue groups hold adoption events; we've created a link for these.

    JUNE 4, 2001 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- PLEASE POST AND CROSS POST South Euclid Mayor John Kocevar introduced proposed legislation to ban several breeds of dogs inside city limits. The pending ordinance stems from neighbor complaints and fears about a resident who failed to confine his dog. The targeted breeds include the Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier and Presa Canario, as well as mixed breeds that appear to have an element of these breeds in their makeup. The ordinance will allow other vicious animals that are not considered 'pit bulls' to remain in the city. Family pets with no history of aggressive acts that are considered 'pit bulls' will be banned or risk an order of euthanasia by the court. A review of the last four years of animal bites data show no pit bull bites on record, and a positive trend of fewer animal bites each year.
