Guess the breed(s)!
Chloe is a small, longish dog standing about 10 inches at the shoulder. She is going to be 13 years old in October. Chloe is shy around strangers and has a very high prey drive. Usually Chloe is kept shaved like in these photos but if her hair grows out, it’s very dense & curly, like corkscrews. She also loves to swim!

Chloe is mixed with 3 small breeds. She is not mixed with Dachshund, but one of the breeds does have a smooth coat, the other two are curly!

Chloe is..!!!

A Bichon/Poodle/Rat Terrier mix!!

Two Minutes on the Lips, two Hours on the Hips

We had an Italian day and we spent the entire day making sauce, meatballs and pasta. The pasta has to dry over night, and Lexi took it upon herself to help us clean up sometime during the night. She ate 2-3 lbs of pasta that took us 2 hours to make. Naughty girl.

Guess the Breed

This Argo, Hes four years old, 19 inches tall, and 28 lbs. He is incredibly stubborn and very vocal, to the point where he instigates his very mellow lab-dachshund brother to bark as well. He is territorial and very protective of his brother, and grooms him constantly. He has made a sport out of chasing birds since he runs very fast, but is just as happy to nap in the sun once he has run himself ragged.

Argo is mixed with 2 small breeds. He is not mixed with Boston Terrier.

Guess the Breed

Georgia is a very young pup who’s only 11 weeks old. She’s 11lbs and roughly 11-12in tall. She’s very smart and has learned a number of commands already but also has a very rambunctious and curious personality. She loves strangers and small dogs/pups but is still a bit intimidated by bigger and older dogs. When she’s tired she’s very loving and likes being held and loved on. When she’s not tired she loves to run around the floor pushing and throwing her toys about and generally being a very cute Tasmanian Devil. 

Georgia is a purebred pupper that can be known by a fancy name!

Georgia is…!!

A Llewellin Setter!

Llewellins are a specific line of English Setter. Some don’t actually consider them to be English Setters, rather a breed of their on, while others argue that they aren’t genetically different so.. they’re English Setters.

Help me guess at what breed(s) my dog is? Her mother was a stray on the streets of baltimore who was taken in when she was pregnant, and the puppies were given to a local shelter.
She’s about 45 pounds, has a high prey drive, does not like other dogs or small children, and is very intelligent. We think she may be part german shepherd due to her markings and thick undercoat around her neck.
Sorry for the bad photo quality, these were all taken on my phone.

I have to admit I find myself a little annoyed by people asking all the bathing questions, because they seem like they don’t want to accept that their dog smells … like a dog. Your dog doesn’t NEED a bath unless something extreme happened, like it got covered in mud or it was sprayed by a skunk. Reminds me of people who get their cats declawed. Dogs smell. Cats scratch things. If you can’t accept these basic traits of the animals, then don’t get one. Sorry, just wanted to get that out there.

True, dogs don’t need to be bathed at all. But I wouldn’t doubt that some dogs are smellier than others. Bloodhounds, for example, are known for smelling bad. They seriously have their own musty body odor!! Usually dogs with wrinkles, folds, and drool, get smelly quicker. There’s nothing wrong with bathing your dog as long as you’re not doing it every week. I’ve known Bulldog owners to use baby wipes on their pup’s wrinkles to prevent bad smells and infections.

But for your normal looking dogs, only clean them when they’re messy. Bathing too often dries out the skin and damages the coat.

@ the pupper bath anon; there’s a such thing as doggy dry shampoo! it’s like a powder. i believe there’s no rinse foamy stuff too, if it’s just for the smell or something. :)

This is Sheba (@tundratails). She’s a rescue, estimated four years old. She’s 58 lbs and is incredibly active. She loves running and howls when she doesn’t get her way. She has a high prey-drive, but listens very well. She is food motivated, but not toy motivated and has a good off-switch. She sheds a lot and her tail curls over her back when she’s excited. She’s dog tolerant and aloof towards strangers, but is very cuddly and likes to be the center of attention with those that she’s comfortable with. 

Believe it or not, Sheba is mixed with 4 breeds! Two spitz type, and two herding breeds.

Sheba is…!!!

He can run for hours and still have plenty of energy. He weighs only 63 lbs but stands at a tall 29 inches! He is very friendly towards all dogs and children but has a high prey drive and is wary of strangers.

Snoop was DNA tested. He is mixed with 4 breeds! Herding, gun dog, and two spitz breeds.

Snoop was DNA tested and his main breeds in order were Border Collie, Labrador Retriever, Alaskan Malamute and Chow Chow.

How often should you bathe your dogs? My girl has a skin condition and can’t be bathed as frequently. This makes her get a little stinky though

Hey anon! 

I think it depends how often you want to bathe your dog, as well as what you guys are doing. Personally, I bathe my dog every time she rolls in poo and pretty much no other time. But she doesn’t smell too too “doggie” so I think I’m just lucky.

There are sprays you can get that can help make your dog smell nice between baths. Also your vet or groomer might be able to recommend shampoos or conditioners that work with your dog’s skin condition. A rinse off with baking soda, oatmeal, or something similar might help too!

Remember not to spray perfume or body spray for humans on your dog, because they have sensitive skin and noses (but I’m sure you aren’t; you sound very responsible!). 

Best of luck to you and your stinky dog! – C
