Welcome to Crazy for Dogs!

Sirius of the Week

Our submitter writes,

"Travis was a "used" dog -- found running loose by a friend and brought to our house to be the official outside dog. He has a wonderfully kind disposition -- readily accepting the advances of the resident Jack Russells. Travis loves to be with people, and will hop into the car or truck in the hopes of going for a ride any time the door is open. He also is very obedient, and is a great companion when we take the horses out for a trail ride."


Here he is hanging out in the hay barn, enjoying himself.

dog

He's having fun mucking about in the mud and water on vacation in New Mexico. His person-mom says that he is such a good dog who never needed to be on a leash. So he could do whatever he wanted, because he always came when called. Unlike his Jack Russell canine siblings.

Beware of Internet Puppy Scams: Unfortunately, unscrupulous people have been sending emails offering to sell pedigree puppies (bulldogs, pugs, and others). Similar phony websites are also on the web. These emails and websites are fake. They are designed to cheat you out of your money either by never sending you the puppy or by sending you a different dog from what you paid for. Your best bet: If you want a purebred, contact a local breed-specific rescue group. Or if you just want a new best friend, save a life from your local animal pound.
