A friendly reminder to due your due diligence before buying a pet.
For example, my mother loves cats. But her home is also located adjacent to two busy streets (on a corner), neither of which are properly sized (for the amount of road traffic they have, Caltrans regulations require 10 foot lanes, and sidewalks. The roads there are only about 8' with 6' onstreet parking instead of sidewalks. The city has the easement rights to build the proper roads, but does not because homeowners want an extra 10' of space for their driveways/lawns). Also the feces around... Comment too long.

I see the same exact situation with a friend of mine. Two of her cats already died this year because of the same exact reason. I keep telling her to either keep them inside and not let them out at all or just to stop getting cats.
You see, your mother's first issue was that she let the cats outside to begin with. Cats are an indoor pet, and if you leave them outside unsupervised in unenclosed area, then you're not taking proper, safe care of them.
She shouldn't have to account for the street because those cats shouldn't be outside anyway.
I'm not so much against the idea of outdoor cats, but there's a cost associated with it. And that's putting up a proper 8-10 foot fence that they can't climb over.
What gets me though is that the entire neighborhood is like this: nobody wants to pay for anything. It's all crappy postwar homes with the original fencing, driveways, and streets. Except for the part where most people added parking easements. And, lo and behold, every few months there's always something (a dog, a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2163204 He's a cunt who wants to record his neighbour's dog barking so he can cause legal trouble for them The funny thing is the sound will probably be picked up in the recording and he'll get fucked up instead
I'd recommend getting two, they'll love eventually but just don't let them breed. If you were to get one you'd have to spend more time with it as they'd get bored and lonely, have lotta toys to play with the budgay. Also pics of babbies pls

PLEASE RESPOND. picture is my filter btw
>>2162032 I'm sure you can afford a vet. There are plenty of shelters around larger cities that provide discount rates. You can work out a payment plan if you can't find one of these clinics. IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD A VET YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE GOT A DOG. YOU DENSE FUCK. IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU GOT THE DOG FOR FREE.
TL:DR Go to a vet. figure something out. Don't fuck with your dog's ears. He will get an infection in his ear and things will much worse and much more expensive.
I've recently become the owner of two dogs, a four year old German shepherd and a eight week old Chihuahua mix. They belonged to my uncle but he recently passed away and no one was able to take them in but me. He didnt exactly socialize the Shepherd to well so it has a big fear of strangers especially tall men and is pretty dog aggressive to larger dogs, she is okay with puppies though. This is the first time I've ever owned any type of dog so I was hoping you guys could help and answer a few questions for me in regards to training them both and raising them... Comment too long.

I would recommend a behaviorist for thr older dog. She will need counter conditioning and it can be difficult to do. I would also take her on walks during off hours when there is a reduced likelihood to find people. All and all, she would benefit greatly from professional help.
Sounds like you are on the right road with the pup though. Only thing I would recommend is adding a word to the action of relocating him to the bed. Before you move him to his bed, tell him "Bed!" AND do what you are doing now.
>>2161789 Well where i live I've noticed a lot of dogs do get out of there yard and I'm not sure when would be safest to take her. I will take her to a behaviorist though thank you. Thank you I'll the word bed to it.
Also when we play the puppy plays he likes to bite pretty hard when we play i give him another toy to chew on that but he still likes to snap at hands will he grow out of it eventually?
Give it a container with more vertical space than horizontal and thinks like sticks or a fake/real plant to hang from. Feed it any kind of live insects twice a weekish. Spray container often so it can suck diwn water droplets. Pretty simple, if you can't keep inverts alive don't try to keep anything else.
>>2159402 What is your home/living environment like? Could be neither breeds are suitable in that respect. I have no personal experience with Huskies but from friends who have and research and seeing how many wind up in shelters it seems most people can't handle them. They have a habit of running off and they keep running and don't come back. They can display behavioural problems out of frustration if they are not put to work. They seem fairly high strung. I have more experience with Malamutes, as I own a half Mally and have friends who own full breeds. Malamutes have thick as fuck coats that moult all year round, you have to groom them every day; not just so they look good or to preserve the neatness of your home but for their health. If you're not prepared to brush them, even for about 10 minutes every day (or every other day at the least) don't get a Malamute. I wouldn't advise getting a Malamute if you live in a hot country, they are classed as endurance freighters and as such will push themselves to extreme limits (in one particular case in Australia, to the point of collapse and then death) and you won't be able to tell in many cases as they don't tend to show it. In my experience Malamutes have a better temperament (for me personally anyway) they seem a lot more laid back and friendly, like big derpy bears although apparently they have high prey drives which I've witnessed in my doggo - he goes fucking mental when he spots a fox or a squirrel, will get complete tunnel vision, and go galloping after them like a furry tank. I've been told they don't have much of a bark but can and will howl like wolves (my doggo does this at any high pitched sounds like door buzzers). Don't get a Mally if you're expecting a guard dog though they are pretty useless at that.
