Jack Russell Terriers are smarter than the average dog

By jim Published: April 26, 2011

From Pets reader Jeff Boies:

One night Madison and I were playing around and I was commanding her to speak then thought it would be cute to she if she could do something different so I said whisper. She barked softer and I thought it was a fluke so I said it again and she did it. After that I thought she deserved a treat so I placed it in one of my hands and made guess. Do you think she was able to? Watch the video to find out.

Vacations and Working Long Hours when you have Pets

By Carol Published: April 26, 2011


I used to commute sixty miles a day, five days a week to support my family. As an animal lover I have always had cats and in recent years a couple of dogs. When you have pets at home, and your employment demands you work longer hours, it quite challenging if you don’t have friends or familly to help you out.

The doggy daycare business is growing rapidly because people are realize the importance of exercising and socializing their dogs. Separation anxiety (a behavior in dogs that causes the dog to be very destructive when the owner leaves) has caused  many dogs to be given up to shelters. The behavior is interpreted as "bad behavior" instead of a condition that can be addressed and treated.

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Sage!

By millere80 Published: April 25, 2011

Be Wise and Choose Sage!

Sage is an affectionate, handsomely gray, 1-2-year-old male. He's good with other cats and older dogs. He's a bit skittish and alarmed by sharp noises so we don't recommend him to a home with small children or puppies. Sage has had a difficult past but is ready for a warm, loving home to call his own.

Game Developer Creates Dog Fighting App

By Leighangela Published: April 24, 2011

Google's android.com is allowing a game called Dog Wars to remain available for download. The game was created by Kage Games, LLC and is causing outrage among animal lovers, who are demanding that Google take down the game. According to Google's Android Market policies, "Android Market should not be used for unlawful purposes or for promotion of dangerous and illegal activities."

The dog in the game's logo is a cartoon Pit Bull with yellow eyes, a studded collar, cropped ears, and apparently a blood-covered muzzle. In the game, the controller trains a Pit Bull to fight and wins "virtual cash" by fighting other players' dogs. The controller also has a gun for police raids and can inject the dog with steroids.

The Horse and the Girl

By Carol Published: April 20, 2011

This is not a story but more like a poem that I wrote for my teenage daughter. I wrote this to encourage her and let her know how proud I am of her for her strength and compassion.  She was recently hurt deeply by someone close to her because she did not want to show a horse. This is my gift to her and I was hoping it would touch others as well! So, to all that love animals without exploiting them~

The Danger of "Free to a Good Home" Ads

By Leighangela Published: April 18, 2011

For those who need to find a new home fast for a pet, posting a "Free to a Good Home" ad seems like the quickest way to get it done. But the practice is dangerous and often restricted.

Animal hoarders and animal dealers (people who sell dogs and cats to places like OSU for research experiments) love finding "Free to a Good Home" ads for obvious reasons. In fact, there is at least one very well-known animal dealer who makes a lot of money selling dogs to OSU. He's even licensed to do so.

PAWS Pet of the Week: Meet Luke!

By millere80 Published: April 11, 2011

Are you Luke's Father (or Mother)?

It is Luke's destiny to be loved and adored. He is a smart, special boy. About 10 months old, Luke was abandoned by his owners, then carted off to the APL with a bunch of feral cats. Along with the TNR cats, Luke's ear was tipped. But the APL soon realized that Luke is no outdoor cat. He's born to be king, a fun loving, bright head-of-the-household.

Research Shows That Indigenous Americans Domesticated Cats

By jim Published: April 10, 2011

For many years, bird lovers have decried the domestic cat as a decimator of songbird populations. They have backed up their arguments with the statement that house cats are a non-native species, and birds haven’t evolved to cope with their predation.
