Thank you.

The vet recommended some. We are trying out Cosequin. He also received some vetprofen. On top of that he has to go on an even stricter diet. Poor boy. At least he has the best attitude.dog

He has been having trouble getting up every now and then. It is not consistent though. It's rarely and then usually in the evening when it's cold.

He is a "head first into everything" kind of dog, so I am concerned.

Making an appointment with our vet as soon as they can squeeze us in.

So after a long road of being baffled why our dog was gaining weight even with diet food and lots of exercise we found out that he has a thyroid issue. He is being treated for it. His weight is still higher than we'd like, but we were told it will take time and might just stay higher than normal. Now my concern is with his joints. His legs are small and thin and he has little paws. When he runs and plays he is like a linebacker, going all in. He loves to run, chase balls, catch frisbees and is an all around active dog, constantly moving.

I was wondering if we should put him on a joint supplement to help prevent damage to his joints. If so, what kind of joint supplements would you recommend? Are there ones to stay clear from? I will have a discussion about this with his vet too, of course, but wanted to hear multiple opinions and especially personal experiences with the supplements themselves.

No problem. We had Ike tested right before we moved. We wanted to use our old trainer, so we squeezed it in.

I am in contact with the trainers and will hopefully get our trial lessons set up in 2-3 weeks. So excited smile

Chase, Timber has already had lessons and Ike was instinct tested. Timber LOVES it! It's so awesome to watch him. That's why we want to continue.

I have contacted two of the instructors and they have replied. I want to try both of them out to see which one works best with the pups. Just have to figure out a good time to do it.

Thank you all for your advice! I am looking into it and contacting some of the closer associations. Finger's crossed that we find what we need. We really loved our old trainer, wish we could have taken them with us on the move wink They really understood how to work with our dogs and we are looking for that again.I'll keep you posted on the progress and feel free to add any more that you know. Thanks!

So we had them scanned and no chips and not neutered cry So we will use the vouchers to get them neutered. What a mess. Maybe the Aussie rescue will at least list them for us, that would help a lot.

Thank you all for your answers and support. It' great to know that there are caring and helpful people in this world.

I will follow your advice and see if getting the word out that way will get these boys adopted. Finger's crossed!

Chandler, question for you: If they are intact (I am guessing they are father and son) wouldn't a (reputable breeder) keep close tabs on intact dogs? Breeding rights and all that. Or maybe the former owners signed that they would neuter but didn't? I will get them scanned as soon as I can, which might not be until Thursday, since I will need a hand with that. I can't put them in the car with my dogs, since Timber hates the younger one and I am alone this week. Maybe Wednesday morning if feeding goes quick enough before I have to go to work. I will let you all know the results when I get them.

I appreciate your support! It felt so horrible when one shelter said it would be considered an owner-surrender.
