I was looking for info on Dobermans... I wanted one. I adopted one and it didn't work out.

I ended up staying anyway and ending up with another dog, one from my neighbors. Oh, and in the meantime accused of dumping the doberman we adopted on the side of the road. (Not what actually happened - he was returned to the rescue because I couldn't handle a high-energy dog. But, because I didn't post about it publicly, all kinds of accusations were made by a group of people who permanently left the forum.)

Ironically, now that I know I can handle a Dobe, I don't want one. I mean, I want one - I really want one - but I don't want to deal with short fur the next time around.

I left like twice and now I'm back because I wanted advice on turning a Country Dog into an Apartment Dog. It's gone quite well.

Beanie, indirectly. She posted on my behalf when I was scoping BC breeders initially, and then while googling around, I found this forum, and her post. I figured if she liked it, I would too!

Many, many moons ago when my old collie was but a young pup I was on a forum called Acme Pets (I think). They had various boards for all sorts of different critters and I frequented the dog boards.

I made friends there and was there quite frequently...then life got busy and I dropped off the forum.

When I got less busy the forum had been shut down...

When I lost my old man cocker to kidney failure and Maeve the collie was an old codger I decided I wanted to find another nice place filled with dog people...

I googled and poked at forums and chaz stuck

HA! I was tarred and feathered on a rabid rescue forum and came to Chazhound to seek shelter from the crazies!

It's been a wild ride - have taken extended breaks, but I always seem to come back. Either I really like you guys, or I like the psychological abuse!

When Di went blind I was looking around and found Chaz, turned out it was a forum a good friend IRL belonged to! LOL

They do say that abuse creates a vicious cycle...

I bet you think you deserve it

I think this strange girl I met named Meagan told me she was a member here...



I'm on a LOT of other forums... but this seems to be the most calm/active, by far. Not a lot of close-minded people, no harassment, not a lot of newbs, but it's for all breeds and not just one.

I had been on other little dog forums. Still read a doberman one occasionally but never post, was only active when it started.

I was trying to find pictures of my husband and one of our dogs on facebook and didn't want to go through every pic with my computer loading so slow so I was googling his name-Chaz and dog and the forum popped up and that was it! Still here years later! My computer is much faster for me to get through my photobucket now to.

I was on a chihuahua forum that was heavily moderated. After calling out someone for being a BYB rather than not replying to her thread with "awww, cute puppies!" I was banned.

I didn't like the other chihuahua forums out there, so I googled for dog forums. Chaz was the first one to come up. I lurked for a little bit and liked what I saw, so I joined

Bronki died. I was looking at these funny dog pics and it brought up a forum.I had never seen a dog forum before.I saw the rainbow bridge and posted my grief there. Some people were very kind and understanding, I liked what I saw in the forum, so I stayed. THat was almost a decade ago.
