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.
We are considering adding another dog to hour household. We currently have two chihuahuas - a 12 year old female and her 11 year old son. I have been doing some reading on different breeds and have read multiple times that Chihuahuas are breed discriminatory - meaning they are able to recognize other Chihuahuas and get along with them better than they do other breeds. We are very much considering not getting a full blooded Chihuahua this time but instead rescuing from a shelter. There are a lot of Chihuahua mix breeds. Some look like Chihuahuas for the most part while others look like the breed they are mixed with or truly have an appearance of the two breeds. My question is how do they know if another dog is chihuahua? Is it by physical appearance or something else?
