'K-9' sounds like canine (ca-nine) and is used as an
abbreviation for canine units in the police force in America and in
some armies. It is also the name of the fictional robot dog
featured in the four television programmes Doctor Who
(1963-present), K-9 and company (1981), The Sarah Jane Adventures
(2007-present) and K-9 (2009-present), and many books and other
media associated with those shows. The nearest counterpart; a robot
called Motoman K-6 is a real-life industrial welding robot
manufactured by Welding Robots.
It varies from individual to individual. Some puppies will
already be born with brown eyes, and some of the blue eyed bunch
will never change color. Generally, if the eyes do decide they want
a color change, it's a trait that happens constantly during
puppy hood, albeit the changes are usually just
darkening/lightening, and not actual color changes.
Usually you wont see their final 'adult' color till after they
are 1 year old, and even after they hit the 1 year mark,...
== == == == A dog's lifespan is only a fraction of the average
human's lifespan, which means that a dog ages more quickly in the
same amount of time. A human of six is very young, but a dog of six
is already middle aged. How can we translate a dog's chronological
(actual) age into something we can compare with a human's
development, maturity, and aging process? How do we know when a dog
is a teenager, an adult, a...
A stray is an animal that doesn't have a home; a cur is a dog of
undetermined lineage, or a mutt.
Also there are two regional breeds of dogs that have "cur" as
part of their names: Black-mouthed Cur (Resembles "Old Yeller" in
the movie) and Mountain Cur (black with tan feet).
Dogs, unlike humans do not have sweat glands in their skin and
thus do not sweat. The way they keep themselves cool is by panting,
which has a similar affect to sweating by pulling heat off of the
dogs body and transferring it to the air/moisture in the air.
If she eats only a small amount occasionally, then it won't hurt
her. But if she eats it as her regular diet, then yes, it can make
her sick. Cat food is formulated for the nutritional needs of cats,
which is very different from the nutritional needs of dogs.
For example, cats require a higher protein diet than dogs do,
and too much protein can harm the dog's kidneys. So you need to
keep your dog (no matter what breed it...
It depends on which animal shelter you're talking about. There
are some who simply do not treat any animals and they kill all or
nearly all animals for illness or space. Some treat minor illnesses
then the animal is put up for adoption. If space gets tight,
though, they may still kill animals.
There are at least 87 communities in the United States with
shelters who do not kill for space, nor do they kill animals with
treatable illnesses or animals with...
A Yorkshire Terrier is a dog and it would need exercise just
like every other dog does. You should walk him or her daily using a
6 foot lead and a collar. Daily walks are best, around 20 minutes a
day and work up to 45 minutes a day.

Dog Club, Animal Shelter or Veterinarian to find the nearest
obedience class. It will teach your dog manners and how...

Most likely. Australian Cattle Dogs are born with their ears
floppy, but eventually they should stand up. It does not happen
with some dogs until they are a few months old. In rare cases, a
dog's ears will stay floppy, though this is a flaw in the show
ring. (Perfectly fine for a pet!)
Depends on your State Law.
In Florida, Service Dogs in Training (SDiT) have the same rights
as a fully trained Service Dogs (SD).
California, is the same, with the exception that guide dog (for
the blind) trainers must be qualified through the state
professional board, just like a doctor or engineer.
GA, TN, and several other states require trainers to be
employees or agents of a recognized service dog school.
The ADA does not cover service dogs in training, only fully

The reason why dogs and birds pant through their mouths and
elephants flap their large ears, is to control (reduce) their
Some animals can sweat through their skins and cool themselves
as this sweat evaporates from their skin.
However, dogs, birds and elephants (and perhaps some other
animals) can not sweat so they either evaporate water in their
mouths or pump blood into their 'radiator' sized ears to cool
Each city has their own ordinances. In Dallas it used to be as
many as you can take care of, but due to people hoarding and having
too many "bad" dogs they have limited it to 4 animals (cats and or
dogs) if you live in an apartment setting and 6 (cats and or dogs)
if you live in a detached house.
City of Plano has a limit of 10.
City of Fort Worth has limit of 3.
City of Denton is...
If a dog smells something he likes, then he may lick the air to
try and taste it.
There's also a behavior called "licking intention." it can mean
"Consider yourself licked," "Hello over there," or "I'lm sorry for
whatever I did, let me come nearer."
