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, www.dogster.com 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.
Just rescued...but what am I?
Rescued from a high kill shelter a day before the fatal shot, Tophee is a playful and sweet dog. She stands at 17.5in tall (from shoulder to ground) and she is 23lbs. Toph is 5 months old and very slim (she doesn't look like she has eaten very well). I have a few pictures of her on her pet page and I believe she looks like she is atleast part American Foxhound.
The shelter tried to say she was a Beagle, but she is already too tall to be one. In my opinion she doesn't look like a Beagle except for her coloration. She also lacks the attitude of a Beagle- she is very curious, but already house trained (I've had her for 4 days). She is a very good hunter, she's caught a rabbit while we were outside playing, and she's well behaved (until she gets bored). When she does get bored, she's a little destructive and likes to steal clothing/socks/anything she can carry. She doesn't chew it up, she just takes it and moves it elsewhere.
If you have any ideas as to what breeds she might be, please help! I'd like to know so I have a better idea of her potential health concerns later in life as well as her eventual size and how to train her best. Thank you
