  1. I had a root canal done on less than 2 year old ACD's canine this summer. He broke the tip off and since I work him on cattle I felt like it was the right thing to do. I thought it was a fresh break but it had already started to abscess at the root. I had an experienced canine dentist do it and his explanation of what can happen with abscesses and the jaw bone scared me to death. Part of the challenge is finding a qualified dentist.
  2. Max says thanks for your help! Please network me. I really want to go to a home with sheep!
  3. I am fostering a particularly nice puppy right now. Please take a look at Max on Carolina Border Collie Rescue (cbcr.org) website. Sorry, I couldn't get his bio to paste into this posting. Be prepared - he is eye candy and has a personality to match!
  4. Thank you for your reply. I didn't think to check the manufacturer. A friend sent me the link to it on the SNAP-NC.org site. I have sent them an inquiry email. Yes, I saw the same thing about testosterone. Will check vasectomy next since there is a close source for that as well.
  5. I'm reopening this thread as I am fostering a 6 month old BC for rescue. This requires him to be neutered before placement. I've tested him on my sheep and the boy really wants to work. He will be professionally assessed by my trainer next month I am researching best options to minimize impact to his growth and development and future health issues. Any future input about this procedure? Versus vasectomy? He's from a CA breeder but so far that person hasn't contacted me. He is a dream puppy as far as temperament. I would love to see him go to a working or trialing home so please pm me if intere
  6. Dear Mr. McCaig: I'm pleased to say a USBCHA (dog and people) trainer is helping a group of dedicated English Shepherd owners here in NC put some nice, albeit slow, outruns on our dogs. This group, as do most here, believe in preserving the working ability of the breed. As an aside, my husband's family friend Jim Bob McEwen tried to get me to switch breeds and train me up almost 40 years ago. Alas, the road not taken... Diane
