Have you ever walked around your neighborhood, and seen a dog that seems to always be alone in the yard, chained to a post?
This cruel, and inhumane practice is known as chaining, or tethering.
Dogs are social creatures, and when isolated for long periods they become depressed, neurotic, anxious and aggressive. They go slowly insane.
A chained dog is usually confined to a very small area where he eats (if he's even fed!), sleeps, defecates, and urinates.
They are: usually malnourished, receive no veterinary care, are infested with fleas, ticks, heartworms, mange and other parasites, dirty and dehydrated. Some have starved to death.
Many die of heat exhaustion, or freeze to death.
Collars are often embedded in their necks from years of straining against them, or not having them adjusted as they grew. If that animal is lucky enough to be rescued, the collar has to be surgically removed.
Please join us as we speak with Tamira Thayne, founder of Dogs Deserve Better. An organisation committed to rescuing chained dogs, and giving them a new chance at a happy life.
For more information about the organisation, and how you can help, please visit their website.
Dogs Deserve Better, a national and award-winning nonprofit organization, is a voice for chained and penned dogs. As the days become years, many of these dogs sit, lay, eat, and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without respect, love, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.
"Dogs Deserve Better has dogs we have rescued from chains or pens available for adoption at both our Good Newz Rehab Center in Smithfield, Virginia, and in foster homes nationwide. At any given time we may have as many as 50-75 dogs available for adoption, depending on our ability."

Did you know that there are some foods that cats and dogs should not eat? Should cats be bathed? Or are their normal grooming habits enough? In this episode, we'll address some of the do's and don'ts involved with caring for healthy, happy cats and dogs. So join us for this pet Q and A (post Fourth of July) session on our upcoming edition of The Missy Show! We look forward to hearing from you.
Marjorie’s Kennel in rural New York in August of 2013 was found by the Department of Agriculture to have more than 200 dogs, living in filthy pens: many suffering from disease or injuries. Rescue efforts have resulted in the release of 60 dogs who have been found to be suffering from the following:
* 36 dogs with Giardia
* 21 dogs with Coccidia
* 55 dogs with roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and/or tapeworms
* 12 dogs with bacterial infections
* 11 dogs with fungal or yeast infections
* 2 dogs with demodectic mange
* 3 dogs with systemic bacterial infections
* 27 dogs with bite wounds
* 2 dogs with frostbite injuries
* 4 dogs with untreated torn cranial cruciate ligaments and severe patellar luxations
* 41 dogs with patellar luxation of grades 1-4
* 29 dogs with abscesses
* 2 dogs with hip dysplasia
* 2 dogs with malformed limbs or patellar fusion
* 1 dog with mammary cancer
* 1 puppy with a large burn
* 2 dogs with sarcoptic mange
* 60 dogs frightened of human beings and completely unsocialized.
More than 50 sick dogs were euthanized and 50 more are believed to have been sent to or sold at a dog ‘auction’ in Ohio following the inspection. In October of 2013, the owner of the kennel, Marjorie Ingraham, signed an agreement to release the remaining dogs into the care of Suncoast Keeshond Rescue, however, after signing the agreement to release the rest of her dogs and vowing to ‘retire’ from breeding, Ms. Ingraham has refused to turn over the remaining dogs to rescuers.

What types of Assistance Dogs are trained
by Support Dogs, Inc.?
Support Dogs was founded on training assistance dogs for people who needed assistance with mobility-related tasks. Today, Support Dogs trains a variety of assistance dogs to meet several segments of the population. Click here to download an Assistance Dog Program brochure.
Service Dogs - These dogs are trained to complete mobility-related tasks for someone with a physical disability. The dogs are trained to open doors, retrieve dropped and distant objects, help with undressing, carry bags, rises to counters, as well as a variety of other mobility-related tasks. Support Dogs places service dogs with adults and children (over 6 years of age). The video below shows one example of what a service dog is trained to do.
Julie Forbes and Tracy Ross discuss dog aggression, and it's different subcategories and causes. "Aggression" is a broad statement and is too large of a topic to just generalize. It is important to understand the nature of dog aggression, and it's different forms and reasons.
Twelve years ago, Tracy was one of the main people Julie learned from, on how to work with dog behavior, particularly aggression. Tracy works with some of the most difficult dogs in the region, and is incredible at breaking through to dogs who don't seem reachable.
