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.

    I am sorry I don't know anyone who sells that. I must say you look very vicious...BOL! You are a cutie!!! Have you tried googleing it? Or maybe your homeowners insurance could recommend someone? Sorry we weren't more help.

    VICIOUS?????? You should just show your profile picture that would say everything :). This may be of some help.

    Is it just your particular dog or is it because of his breed? You homeowners insurance agent should be able to help you. If not, start looking for a new company.

    What state are you located in? There are two kinds of canine liability insurance. Some states mandate canine liability insurance for certain breeds as well as for dogs that have been deemed vicious. This is a policy that covers only your dog, not an umbrella policy to your renter's or homeowner's policy. In Ohio, for example, this can be obtained through the Ohio Insurance Exchange. In other states you may want to call animal control or a local Pit rescue to get you the contact information. In some states, you can get additional canine liability insurance through your current renter's or homeowner's provider. If your normal insurance does not include a liability clause for injuries caused by your dog, you can purchase a personal umbrella liability policy. I don't know whether this will be an option in your case, but I would call your insurance provider to ask about adding a policy covering your dog.
