The dog looks my partner on my job....omg....hope dog will be good now....
Poor baby, get better soon!
Said the vet opened on Saturday night. They sedated him and took a while working on him. Got them all out and gave him some antibiotics and pain meds. They figured he would be back on the job in a few days.
Poor baby. Hope the vet can get them all out.
So the dog ran into a porcupine and it struck him/her? Hmmm. That’s not logical.
The perp should have to cover the cost of the vet bill!
OH MY GOD
Oh, ouch! Poor baby.
Whatta badass! Good boy!👍
That the suspect must be found Maximum penalty and prison Very painful to visualize this loulou who suffered atrociously
OH SEND THE DOGS IN SO I DONT GET SHOT Animal Loves protest. Sick if it🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Poor baby ❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
This is killing me. Wish they would quit showing this photo. That is extremely painful. My vet says it’s like having actual needles in your skin. Moving hurts. Poor guy
Coos bay K9 Odin. Poor dog. That looked miserable. I hear he’s doing great . His eye was un harmed which was miracle. I had no clue they had porcupines in Oregon!
He just wants to be comfy. LOL What a sweet smile.
That smile melts your heart! Handsome boy.
He’s rather pleased with his work 🤣🤣🤣
Aww dad don’t be mad, he loves you, he was making a tunnel to get to see you🐾
The heart of a grunt stuck in a dog
He done good.
Been there done that.
One of my boys uprooted, ripped out and tore to a billion pieces an eight foot tall banana tree because he wanted his sleeping hole there.
In order not to crowd his space with the debris he carefully deposited all of it into the swimming pool.
Love his smile !!! Sooo happy with himself ! ❤💕 😊
He’s so proud of his work 💙🐾💙
Aw but he’s so cute,
Love that grin!
Well at least it is dry. A certain GSD when she was a puppy loved digging holes the mud in the back yard and went from a Black and Tan to an all Black GSD...
Such a handsome Malinois...how can you be mad at that face.
SDF has helped us on medical grants for police K-9s suffering from cancer. We are grateful for their partnerships.The Search Dog Foundation is excited to share that our founder, Wilma Melville, has co-authored a book about her journey in creating the foundation! Sharing anecdotes from her early efforts to form SDF, as well as significant moments in our group's history, Hero Dogs is a unique glimpse behind-the-scenes as SDF grew from a volunteer effort at Wilma’s coffee table to the national organization we are today. Please join us in sending big congratulations to Wilma! ... See MoreSee Less
It has taken years for Search Dogs to recover from her biased attitude. Many FEMA K9 handlers "retired" when she decided NO dogs with ANY protection training should be search and rescue dogs and helped make that policy.Yes, you can find great dogs at a shelter. But when they die from some disease 7 years later you have to wonder. Why did I put all that time and training in a dog which is not bred for health ? (German Shepherd breeders I knew had dogs that usually lived 13-15 years. I noticed recently that SDF is asking breeders to donate pups.) My understanding is that Wilma was not the best at S&R just fundraising. Glad that she is raising money that helps police K9s with cancer but I won't be buying her book. Hopefully, some day one the FEMA handlers that quit because of her will write their side of the story.

Ever noticed those slits at the sides of a dog's nose? Why do dogs have them?
Once again, nature proves her elegance in the design of our dogs. When we humans inhale and exhale, air comes in the same way it goes out. Any smells that come in through our mouths are forced out as we exhale, if we exhale out our mouths.
When a dog exhales through his nose, however, the exhaled air is released through those slits and off to the side so that nice, smelly air going into the dog's nostrils doesn't get diluted with the outgoing air. Put another way, the slits allow the dog to avoid smelling what he just exhaled.
The slits help the dog hold scent particles in the nostrils even as exhaled air passing out the slits creates a swirling air turbulence allowing interesting odors to be inhaled directly into the centre of each nostril. Since dogs breathe faster when trying to sniff a certain smell, they widen their nostrils to pull in more air which makes it possible for a dog searching for smells to have a steady stream of air coming in for up to 40 seconds, maybe even longer.
The slits also allow dogs to wiggle each nostril independently which gives them the ability to know which nostril a smell entered. This is how a dog can pinpoint where a smell is coming from, and why a dog searching for smells on the ground will weave back and forth as he follows a trail.
We all know the superb smelling abilities of dogs, but let's use an analogy between scent and sight to really put it into perspective: If our eyes were our nose, what we as humans can see at a third of a mile, our dog can see more than 3,000 miles away and still see as well.
