Therapy dog ‘dangerous’? Elgin targets pit bulls, other breeds

Monday, March 8th, 2010

Elgin’s effort demonstrates the difficult balance for communities in trying to protect citizens from dog attacks while avoiding the outcries — and potential lawsuits — from those who say pit bulls are unfairly demonized.

Joe Remijas dresses up his dog Taysia with feather boas and paints her toenails when he takes her on weekly visits to a nursing home and hospital in Elgin.

A certified therapy dog, Taysia has brought cheer to hundreds of ill and elderly people over the past seven years, he said.

Taysia is also a pit bull. So in order to keep her, Remijas will likely have to secure $100,000 in liability insurance and post a “dangerous dog” sign on his property, restrictions the Elgin City Council will impose on dangerous and vicious dogs if an animal control ordinance it is considering becomes law. The measure narrowly won preliminary approval last week.

Shiboo Howloween Fundraiser at All For Doggies

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

gviewWell, it’s that time of year when all the furry children dress up like their favorite…..humans! This year the Chicago Area Shiba Inu Meetup is sponsoring a great event to benefit the Shiba Inu Rescue Association. This rescue currently has many adoptable dogs in foster homes, some of which are rescued breeding dogs and puppies (I hate puppy mills, don’t even get me started!). Since they are a relatively small organization, they are in desperate need of any and all help they can get. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the dogs that are currently fostered, and will allow the rescue to continue saving others.
