Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Is she or isn\'t she?

Because curiosity is driving me a little crazy, I would love to figure out what my little dog is. How do I tell if her tail is "stumpy" vs docked? She's clearly ACD or ASCD and something. Thoughts? Note: this is the picture she came with... I need to get her current picture up. She's filled out a bit with love... but is still slender and only about 30 pounds.

    it looks like it could have been docked, my ACD also has hers done... I think they do it so they can sell the dog cheeper, ACD's with docked tails are not considered AKC..thats all, but in blood they are.. Quite dumb I think..very wrong! :(( But your's is very cute!!
