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.

    You need to study the breeds. Read about breeds that you are attracted to. Consider grooming, energy, and personality very carefully. And breed of dog can get along with any other breed, with the right socialization and raising. Some places NEVER to get a dog from: Pet Store (because good breeders don't sell to them) Places to get a dog: Shelter Rescue group Reputable breeder Our page has more info about good breeders.

    We rescued a Shitzu 3 years ago and she was very laid back, didn't eat much, and was very fussy. Four months ago we recused a JRT. We had no idea how high strung these dogs were, but I must say; these two dogs really compliment each other. The Shitzu has a lot more energy, eats well, and the JRT has calmed down immensely. They play together a lot and it's so cute to watch them. They are both about 5 years old.
