Choosing the Right Dog > which dog should I get?

Toto, seriously, this is why discussion is important instead of just dismissing someone! No, I've never had a Frenchie, I suggested them because they seem like they would make a great small pet, and I just suggested a few off the top of me head so the OP could have a least a FEW breeds to look into. I didn't expect that all would meet every requirement. I don't think there is anything wrong with having certain requirements, so long as you are willing to compromise them if you find a dog that may meet some but not all (such as the long walks). Seriously, that's what this group USED to do, with different dog owners weighing in on their own experiences to help others make the right choice, not just attacking them for having preferences. Ya'll didn't simply tell the guest to look up a few breeds and then ya'll would make suggestions. You mocked him (re "get a pet rock"). And most of ya'll when you try to "educate" the OP on "realistic dog-ownership" just come across as really rude and snobby.

I agree with the guest. I'm disappointed with the attitude that permeates dogster now, and I won't be back anymore. You think the guest is too strict with preferences? Well, no one can live up to the requirements expected of dog owners on this site.

ETA: Every breed doesn't need to be suggested. Just a few. But noone would even suggest ONE. Certain things the OP didn't want (like high prey drive) could rule out entire groups like hounds and terriers. That can help someone narrow their search.

Guest, I would recommend an adult Golden Retriever. smile

ETA: Ah, but they are on the larger size. Now I can't think of any because I'm more of a big-dog person...hum. Actually, a poodle may be a good fit. And you could consider a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, they are cool dogs. Other breeds to check out, maybe the French Bulldog and the Pekingese.

Good luck in your search. Hope you come back to see this post, and sorry about the response you've already gotten. Once upon the time we could get into some good discussions on dog breeds here. Of course all dogs don't come ready make, and regardless of the breed you choose it will need to be trained. I think we all know that already. Good luck again. way to go

ETA: I just gotta say, it's been a while since I've been on Dogster, and I am disappointed with the responses on here. Pretty sure most of us know that specific breeds are bred for specific reasons, and that's why people usually want specific breeds, not just any dog off the street. Yes, they still need to be trained, but certain breeds are more prone to certain behaviors, and it used to be cool to get into discussions here about which type of breed would be a better match for people. Just saying. Rant over.flowers

Hi ya'll!wave

Moose, talk about a blessing in disguise! Hope you heal quickly!hug

I've been quite busy, still am really, so won't be on very much. I really wanted to have an Art minor, but I didn't think I would have the time for it so didn't take it (I'm a Biology major so not required to have a minor). But now I keep seeing people with art supplies, and they have some awesome paintings hanging up all over the place by students so I'm kinda regretting it now.frown Ah well. I got to go to the beach so that was awesome. smile

Hope everyone is having a good day. blue dog

[The “rescue’s” attorney is pro bono through the Ohio ASPCA, which I think, speaks volumes as to the position of the ASPCA on dog ownership rights.]

Another article. I'm honestly surprised Dogster doesn't think this is a big enough story to be writing about (or follow-up articles if they ever did write about it).

"On the day that Cheryl Meredith died, Sanderbeck was allowed to be present (after being banned by the Hospice earlier). Sanderbeck brought Tamara Basso with her and the two women spent the last hours talking constantly about how the “dog will never be found, she is totally hidden”. Adam said that he and others present felt something wasn’t right, yet it was still several weeks before he and his brother learned of the now raging controversy surrounding Sanderbeck’s refusal to return Piper to her owner."

Interesting note: If I remember correctly, it was Basso who notarized the Power of Attorney Sanderbeck had for Meredith (which her family did not find out about until after her death); it was also Basso who was with Sanderbeck the day she claimed two women broke into her house (huh, two women...) and has apparently been helping her conceal Piper by the way they were talking. Sounds like Sanderbeck has a friend who is willing to misuse their legal authority.

This is crazy, Sanderbeck sank much lower than just keeping (stealing, imo) Piper. She has committed crimes and should be jail. The only reason she isn't is because, also imo, she is skilled in the art of manipulation.

She betrayed the trust of a friend and her family while she was on her deathbed (!), broke into their home, stole legal papers, stole mail, and stole money. All this was going on at the same time she took Piper. In light of this, I firmly believe she is lying about someone breaking into her own home to throw people off (which is likely why she stopped cooperating with police to find the alleged burglars). People who are skilled at manipulation know how to twist things around to make themselves seem like the victims, and never admit to doing anything wrong (or if they do, they make excuses for it and/or accuse others of things real or false to make them seem worse).

Sanderbeck should not be allowed to have a rescue, much less Piper.

Here's just a sample from this article of what Sanderbeck did to a lady she called her friend (Adam is Meredith's son):

"On June 16, 2014, Adam received a phone call from the Hospice where he was advised that Sanderbeck had attempted to get nurses on the 3-11pm shift to witness a new will for Cheryl Meredith. The nurses refused and immediately contacted their supervisor. The hospice wrote to the Merediths advising them of the incident and stating that Cheryl "did not possess the cognitive capacity to make informed decisions" and that the hospice had informed "Penny" that the staff would not witness any documents."

"Approximately 4:19am, approx. 45 minutes after Cheryl Meredith's death, Penny Sanderbeck without the family's knowledge, cleaned out Cheryl Meredith's bank account via the ATM, even though her Power of Attorney died with Cheryl Meredith.

Adam Meredith stated that a few days after his Mother's death, he went to her apartment to begin to clean it. When he arrived, he said he found Penny Sanderbeck inside. When he asked Sanderbeck what she was doing there, she told him she had a Power of Attorney and said he should talk to Attorney John Bell. After she left, Adam found the area where legal documents kept to be ransacked."

*Note, I believe Sanderbeck manipulated Adam's mother into giving her some form of Power of Attorney (which Adam had), it is explained more in the article.

I def agree Scooter, I think that is a large reason why this is getting so much attention.

Btw, Sanderbeck IS accepting applications for Piper, regardless of her status.

"Although Penny Sanderbeck is not willing to give Covatch her dog, she is willing to accept applications for adoption from anyone else.

There is a few stipulations that applicants for Piper must go through before being considered. Sanderbeck's attorney, John Bell, will be taking the adoption applications. The applicant must prove not to be involved in the alleged burglary in May of the director's home/rescue shelter. And finally, applicants must not be connected to Ms. Covatch or support her in her right to fight for the return of her sheltie."


http://www.examiner.com/article/ohio-rescue-refuses-t o-return-lost-sheltie-to-owner

At this point I honestly believe Sanderbeck is refusing to return Piper out of spite, not out of concern for her well-being.

I would note the burglary is still referred to as "alleged".

Imo, someone who would not support the right of the owner to fight for the return of her dog...well, that's not someone I would want having a dog.

Well, I hope the courts settle it quickly when it gets there. I'm following the story until it's over. I believe the reason so many people are outraged over this, and following the story...is this could happen to anyone. Micro-chipping has been pushed so much as the ultimate...guaranteed...way to have your lost pet returned, but the dog is NOT being returned.

Sorry, but I really have no love lost for COSR due to their unethical handling of this situation.
From what I understand Sanderbeck refused to cooperate with all attempts at third-party negotiations with the NSRN (including telling Melton she was going to "destroy paperwork and make Piper disappear"; NSRN eventually cut ties to COSR due to her uncooperation).
Also, it was Sanderbeck who claimed her home was burglarized and accused Piper's owner (and used that as a reason to stall negotiations), but she stopped responding to the officers who were investigating the alleged break-in (oddly enough, the only thing missing was some paperwork that were public record at the shelter), which caused the police to stop the investigation into it.

This should never have escalated to this point. The way I see it, two major things contributed to this:

1) The shelter did not do their job correctly.
2) Sanderbeck, for whatever reason, decided the original owner did not "deserve" to have Piper returned to her.
