Best Answer

A dog's breasts hang for the same reason old people's skin hangs. It is because their skin is no longer elastic (stretched tightly over skin). Another possible reason is that the animal has had too many pregnancies.

this is a common disease many older or young dogs may experience. it is called Canius limpus and may occur for a number of reasons. the first being that the dogs right testicle contains more sperm than the left causing it to hang awkwardly causing the dog to limp. if the dog is a female it may be because the right ovarie contains more eggs than the left and has swolen causing the dog to have an un-proportionate abdomen. this is a very serious infection and the dog should be treated immediatley.

Can two dogs get along with a new cat?

It depends if the two dogs are friendly to cats. If anything, it might be best before you buy the cat to see if your dogs like cats. You can try this by asking a friend to bring over her/his cat and let it hang out with your dogs. If you already bought the cat, let it hang out with you dogs. If the get along, great! If they don't, try to keep them in separate areas. Hope this helps a bit! :)
