I have a older female from the same breeder and have recently introduced her to a younger male. Which things started out just fine with them playing for over the first 2 months. And she is now very aggressive just over her original toy given to her as a puppy. I concerned that she many hurt the young in her vicious attack. So I’m seeking information on what I need to do about this issue. Because I got the male to breed for for puppy’s and her is just a little sweet heart. She has always been a little sweet as well, but protective.

It sounds like she is Resource Guarding. This is a common behavior with dogs of all ages / breeds / genders, especially ones that have been the only dog in the home for a long period of time. Contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer that has worked with Resource Guarding behavior before to help her accept the new puppy and not be so defensive over her things.

I am meeting a seller from next day pets. What do you recommend my payment method and documentation shown to prevent scams? Any other tips for first time dog owners.

1 Comment


All contracts should be written up and each party should have a copy. Receipts should be given for payments and the puppy should be microchipped before leaving the breeder and the microchip number should be given to the new puppy owner prior to the puppy being transported from the breeder to the new owner. It is up to the new owner to get a vet to check the microchip number of the new puppy to the documentation given to the new owner by the breeder within 3 days of getting the new puppy.

What steps can I take to buy a puppy safely on this site? I am interested on the dog name Joey a Bichon Frise puppy. What's secure do I have after I paid I will get my dog safety and healthy?

This site is for advertising dogs and puppies that are up for sale. Each breeder that advertises on this site is different. You yourself need to get in contact with that breeder that owns Joey and ask them personally. If the breeder wants a deposit to hold onto a puppy, a receipt should be given with a written contract to ensure that that specific puppy is now on hold for you. Unless you are picking your puppy up in person, the puppy should be microchipped prior to transport with vet papers that show that the puppy matches the microchip number and is healthy enough to travel the distance needed to get to you.

Anonymous asked:
My bichon was just 9 years old and had a benign basal cell growth removed from the left orbit bone after the stitches were removed. He developed a swelling over the dorsal aspect of the orbit, X-ray said there was concurrent thinning of the outer diplo of the frontal bone and soft tissue swelling. Said it is consistent with regional infiltrative process arising from frontal sinus extending into soft tissues neoplasia involvement of underlying sinusfrom frontal sinus cannot be excluded. He had a lump on top and the vet kept draining it. He was scheduled for a Ct scan but never made the appointment. He was given several pain meds but got so nauseous. He started to eat all of a sudden. A few minutes later his legs started to go into spasm and passed away with me holding him in my arms. I am beyond devastated. I really do not know what happened if it was a brain tumor or infection. Are bichons prone to this or is this rare my vet said brain tumor? Can you explain this to me.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose a best friend. Unfortunately the only way you are going to know definitively is by getting a necropsy done on your dog. What that it is basically is an animal autopsy. This will be able to determine the cause of death. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA, also called immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, or IMHA) and immune-mediated thrombocytopenia (ITP) are responsible for many premature Bichon Frise deaths. These diseases can strike with little or no warning and kill very quickly. In AIHA, the dog's immune system attacks its own red blood cells, leading to severe, life-threatening anemia. Symptoms include weakness, loss of energy, lack of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, rapid heart rate, rapid breathing, dark urine, and pale or yellow gums. These diseases can be triggered by surgeries and other medical issues. But still, the only way to know for sure is to have a necropsy done on your dog. The only thing that can be done now is to remember him when he was happy and healthy, give his memory the honor and respect he deserves and know that he will be waiting for you on the other side of rainbow bridge.
