Rescue Dog That Hugs Everyone He Meets Is Looking For A New Home

Dogs are some of the sweetest souls out there. And one rescue dog in New York has a very gentle heart. The precious pup is so happy about being rescued that he goes around hugging all the people that he meets.  The five-year-old pooch named Toro was found last October chained to a fence outside an abandoned house. The poor dog was weighed down by a 15-pound collar on his neck. Thankfully Toro wasn’t alone, there were two other dogs abandoned alongside him. He ended up in the care of the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. They helped the friendly pup

What Your Dog’s Tail Is Trying To Tell You

Dogs do a lot of communication through body language. One of the ways that they express themselves and what they’re feeling or thinking is through their tails. They can convey all kinds of emotions with just one wag – or a lack thereof. And below are the different signs and what they mean: Perked Up When a dog is feeling perky, his tail is probably feeling it too. And you’ll see it in their tail by a confident stance in their tail.

Why Do Dogs Love To Have Their Ears Rubbed?

Our dogs love a good cuddle. But the one thing that always gets our dogs in a good mood is an ear scratch. They seem to absolutely adore these moments and we see it as they go into a trance of contentment. We’ve all had those nice bonding moments with our pups. They usually play out like this: us sitting on the couch, our dog jumping up to join, and us reaching over and gently patting their heads before we move to the scratch behind the ears. It’s something that our pups immediately melt over and they can’t seem to

That way, we can understand how to better help them through whatever it is that is afflicting them. Here are some of the common reasons why our dogs destroy household items, and what we can do about

Why Does My Dog Like To Pee On Objects?

We all know that cats are the most likely culprits of indoor tinkling. It’s usually male cats trying to lay claim to their kingdom and ruining our couches in the process. We once had a male indoor cat who took up spraying the sofa, and he was quickly transitioned to an indoor/outdoor cat so he could spend the majority of his days outside taking out his territorial aggressions on the rosebushes rather than my mother’s prized couch. And while cats are notorious for sometimes peeing in the house, our dogs aren’t entirely innocent on that front either. Our pups are

Why Do Dogs Like To Rub Themselves On The Ground?

Dogs love to roll around on their backs. We’ve all seen them throw themselves on the grass or the carpet and going bananas. Normally we assume this is either an itch relief technique or some kind of scent marking thing, but there is actually a number of explanations for their behavior.  The most reasonable explanation for this behavior is that they’re trying to relieve an itch. But if your dog seems to be constantly itchy then it could be a sign that there is something wrong with them medically. Constant itching can be a sign of dry skin, allergies, or

Pug Credited With Helping Two Sisters Realize They Had Breast Cancer

Dogs are often used for medical purposes such as sniffing out cancerous tumors. They are good at it too, mainly because a dog’s nose is incredibly powerful. While these tumor sniffing dogs are professionally trained, sometimes you’ll hear stories from people sharing how their dog at home somehow managed to alert them to a tumor. I remember once watching a TV program where a woman recounted her story of how her dog kept sniffing under her armpit only to find out later at the doctor’s that she had lymphoma. These stories of regular dogs becoming medical heroes can happen, but

Woman’s Emotional Support Dog Comforts Her When She’s Having An Anxiety Attack

There are many benefits to having a furry companion by your side. But for some people, the need for a pet is crucial for their mental health.  While we live in a more liberal and accepting society, there is still a lot of stigma surrounding mental health. Not everyone understands the everyday struggles of those who have debilitating illnesses that essentially invisible to the world. It can be quite isolating to suffer from depression or severe anxiety when you seem “fine” to the outside world. That is where emotional support animals can be a very valuable aid to those who are
