I had a competition dobie end up with extensive orthopedic surgery and have to be placed in a pet home with no young dogs for her to run with. She ran her shoulder into a tree and was alright until she started to heal. I don't know what I could have done differently so I'm sorry if I'm no help.

It irks me to no end that so many people treat their animals like yesterday’s garbage.I’m having a bit of a dog dilemma myself. My 11 month old German Shepherd is showing signs of severe hip dysplasia. I’m still hoping that it was just an injury, however, if that was the case then she should have been improving rather than getting worse each day. I had high hopes of this dog excelling in agility.Hopefully something good came out of your Christmas.

Subject: [MarvWalkerHorses] My Christmas - I think yahoogroups must hate me- this is another resend!He's a nightmare. Running totally amok at 6:30 in the morning. Like a force of nature! Except he is a black tri 18 month old Australian Shepherd- pure bred. His family brought him to the vet to be euthanized for being viscious. They spent this animal's life treating him like a human, giving him shoes to chew on. Letting him push them around (literally) and when I told them a year ago in the lobby of my grooming shop that they were creating a monster, Mr. 70 something year old guy looks at me like I grew another head or spoke bad chinese or something.He eats anything not nailed down so far. He helps himself to dancing on the counter and this computer desk. I can finish this email because he has now settled for barking his head off at the back of my head. He digs in the garbage and if you let him in the back yard he barks continuously.He does not know how to play.He has no canine social skills either. So while he wants to run with my dogs, he's not sure how to.He does not have a mean bone in his body though. He needs nore exercise than a whole soccer team could provide one at a time.I'm trying to find him a permanent place in an aussie rescue locally but no luck so far. I can't keep him much past the holidays (I was baby sitting for the new owner when she backed out-gee I wonder why?).So he'll go back to the vet when the holiday is over-because I'm renting and can't have him here. I haven't gotten too far with keeping him off people but he doesn't think he owns the garbage anymore.(Sigh) So that was my Christmas and I'm exhausted now. His owner said he didn't want him beat anymore and that is another reason why he settled for putting him to sleep. I guess it never occurred to him that some people can train even difficult animals without hurting them? I just didn't get his logic.
