He grabs it just inside one of the knots and runs around with it. I finally took one across the shin a few minutes ago...felt about as great as you'd imagine.
I love how you at some point believed this wouldn't happen.

Also luxating patella and deafness.

Retarded "dogs" for retards. When a breed has actually lost the physical ability to reproduce you'd think people would get the loving hint.

wtf bostons are you people buying that they can't even breed. you sure you aren't confusing them with with those uga style bulldogs? cataracts & cherry eye I've heard about, but drat son
90% of bostons are born through c-section because the pup heads don't fit through the bitches' pelvic canal.

When we dogsitted for some friends their mutt he would just lay down at the foot of the bed wih the deepest, loudest sigh when we didn't get up.
Then stand up, walk around for 4 seconds and repeat the procedure until someone paid attention.

I may give that a shot. I usually just chop up a hot dog.
It's what we do and the effect is similar enough.

Then again my dog eats ice.
Rice with boiled, shredded chicken is what we fed ours while she was getting used to non-poo poo kibbles, and she loved that poo poo. She'll eat anything that has a slight hint of meaty odor, but she's a rescue.

Huskies and Malamutes can be territorial, but they have retard strength. Seriously, they were built to pull sleds and carts, I have seen a husky break a tow cable because of 3 months of constantly yanking on it when it was outside. When the cable was replaced the dog simply yanked the fence post concrete footer and all, out of the ground.
That the huskies I know. When I was a teenager we often tried to push or tug-of-war my friend's husky in the pool, and unless you physically lifted him off the ground he'd never lose.

Here is Luma some weeks after i picked here up, i had had to say goodbye to my old dog a week earlier and a friend in the police told me about this dog about to be put down since the owner was abusing her. since im a huge softie i broke all my promises to never have a flat-coated retriever or a border collie, and got a mix of them both.

If they're social, have them meet/play with dogs who like it. They tend to pick it up.

It was laying in the street, and I didn't recognize what the hell it was until I saw it running away in my side view mirror. Surprised it didn't die because it was a pretty gnarly crunch, so obviously it's a lifter.
Well if you wanted 3rd party confirmation that you're a gigantic rear end in a top hat...

It takes time. If he's still a pup, realize that humans have been beating on him for most of his life.

Don't hold his gaze (challenge), make sure he's spotted you when you want to pet him, and just leave him alone if he's cowering/anxious. I can't stress this enough, I know it sucks but you can't force it. Let him come to you (offer treats!).

If it's any consolation, it will get better: our current rescue wouldn't be near me for weeks, and now she runs to the door all hyper when I come home.

Our mutt is also pretty much always on her best behavior. The only thing she doesn't like is getting off the couch to get walked (can't blame the drat thing, it's like -15C now). At the very start she would growl/nip if you got close to her food/bone, but we've worked that out.

Now she'll nibble on my hand when she thinks I'm hiding a treat but in the gentlest way possible, so it's just really funny to see how long we can lead her on.

Ya our dog's only freak out was when we trapped her in a single room because we didn't know trained she was when we got her and didn't want her to pee all over e house.

Turned out she was completely disciplined, and super happy once she had the run of the flat.

If they're both on a leash it's quite easy to control the amount of interaction they'll have. Ask people at the park how their dogs behave and allow your pup the appropriate amount of leeway.
