I'm scared, is it really okay to feed him?
This is Ra'ad, a stray dog in the dorm of my college that no one has ever paid attention to, two days ago I started feeding him, I believe he recognizes me now and honestly I truly like him, he feels liks a big child which is cute... BUT here is the thing.. I CANT control him, when he sees me he often rushes to me and I keep telling him to stop, and honestly its my first time dealing with dogs so I'm scared senseless , I dont touch him because I cant risk catching a disease but he keeps getting close to me (hyperactivly) and I just want to know how to act...I would appreciate the help so much
It sounds like his rushing to you is him being excited? When this happens just lift your knee up. Dogs learn pretty quick that the knee blocks them from being able to jump on you so they stop. Don't be aggressive. Unless the dog has rabies you aren't going to "catch" something from the poor thing. And rabies is very noticeable after the first few days so he probably does not have rabies. If you are going to train him not to jump on you, you will need to get use to the idea of petting him. He's alone, and he needs someone to love him and pet him. Be kind. Pet the dog. Pull your knee up to stop the jumping. And thank you for feeding him.
We have grown closer and I was afraid for her life because they called people who were going to'put her down' but I was able to spread her story and she was rescued to a lovely home where she is being well fed and vaccinated. Thank U for the help!
I would get him. Call the pound. And get him into a shelter. There are no kill shelters. Don't know where you live but some places it costs nothing to turn a dog in. The dog will get shots, vet care, be neutered and be placed in a home. Unless the dog is a biter the dog will get adopted by a owner that has been vetted to be a permanent home. Please call the shelter.
There arent shelters for dogs in my area. They pretend they take them into a shelter but they treat them horribly and possibly shoot them.. But Ive contacted vets and she is now rescued in a safe wide home where she eats extremely well.thank u tho!

I'm really scared and I need a consult, but I can't afford an online one and it's kind of personal. To be more specific I think I may have sepsis. Is there anyone I can message directly that is a doctor that can give me an idea of my issue?

What would you say when someone tells you "Have you gained weight?" in front of others?It was full of people and I would not say the comment was really welcome. Yes, I did gain weight, I have to admit, not that much... She did not mean to insult, but I would not consider it to...
