Another in need.

Rayna has been adopted!

Meet Rayna, a beautiful, spayed, American Bull Dog, who was unfortunately surrendered due to a military deployment. The owner was beside himself surrendering her, but on short notice, did not know of programs such as our own. The rescue now knows of us for future military cases, and we're hoping the owner might be contacted.

Rayna is looking for a foster home or a forever home. Rayna is a little shy at first but quickly warms up to you. She is easy going and a social dog. Rayna is housebroken and knows basic commands. She loves to go for walks and is good on a leash. Rayna has a sweet disposition and a great personality. She is a loyal dog. Rayna has not been exposed to cats. She is a great dog who will make an awesome family companion to a loving home.

To foster or adopt Rayna, please contact the Heritage Humane Society:
430 Waller Mill Road
Williamsburg, VA 23185
(757) 221-0150

Whole Dog Journal Tip of the Week: Homemade Cooked Dog Food Diets

Most dogs have little problem switching to a home-cooked diet. If your dog is prone to digestive problems, you may want to make the change gradually. Add just one new ingredient at a time and wait a few days to see how your dog does before adding something else new, gradually increasing the amount of new food and decreasing the amount of the old.

If you add a lot of new ingredients at one time and your dog develops problems, it's harder to tell what the cause might be. If your dog vomits or has diarrhea, return to his prior diet and make the change more carefully once his digestive system is back to normal. That may include feeding the new food separately from the old (at least a few hours in between meals), and feeding only one new food at a time, to see if your dog reacts to any of the new ingredients.

For more information on Home-Prepared Diets for Dogs, purchase any of Whole Dog Journal's ebooks on the subject:

Whole Dog Journal Tip of the Week: Understanding Dog Growling

Growling is a valuable means of communication for a dog - something that dog owners should appreciate and respect rather than punish. Of course, we don't want our dog to growl at us, but neither do we want him to fail to growl if something makes him uncomfortable; that's very important information in a successful canine-human relationship.

It's very common for dog owners to punish their dogs for growling. Unfortunately, this often suppresses the growl - eliminating his ability to warn us that he's about to snap, literally and figuratively. On other occasions, punishing a growling, uncomfortable dog can induce him to escalate into full-on aggression.

So, if you're not supposed to punish your dog for growling, what are you supposed to do? The next time your dog growls at you, try this:

Stop. Whatever you're doing, stop. If your dog's growl threshold is near his bite threshold - that is, if there's not much time between his growl and his bite, get safe. If his growl doesn't mean a bite is imminent, stop what you're doing but stay where you are. Wait until he relaxes, then move away, so you're rewarding the relaxed behavior rather than the growl.

Analyze the situation. What elicited the growl? Were you touching or grooming him? Restraining him? Making direct eye contact? Taking something away from him? Making him do something?

If you need help to create and implement a behavior modification protocol, contact a qualified behavior professional who is experienced and successful in modifying aggressive behavior with positive, dog-friendly techniques.

For more details and advice on modifying dog aggression, purchase Whole Dog Journal's ebook, Approaches to Modifying Dog Aggression.
