Species group: Mixed Breeds
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.
The pairing between a Affenpinscher and an Australian Terrier isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue.
Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of this smallish mix could be different depending on whether the Affenpinscher or the Australian Terrier traits dominate.
Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the parent breeds of the Affenpinscher / Australian Terrier Mix will give you good odds of having a devoted family pet that demands plenty of exercise.
"Omega3 acids have been shown to help in many health conditions, the most for these 5:<br />- Osteoarthritis<br />- Inflammatory skin disorders (including allergies)<br />- Cardiovascular disorders<br />- Renal disease<br />- Cognitive function and neurological health<br />You should use them even if your dog doesn't have any pressing health issues, especially if your dog doesn't get enough of them from diet. <br />In order to get the therapeutic effect you need to dose them correctly, for this you need to consult your vet, so they can recommend the dose and product you should use.<br />Keep in mind this is not a short term treatment, omega3 fatty acids have a buildup period of 6-8 weeks before they reach high enough concentrations in your dogs body, and they need to be used all the time, if you make a pause, then you need a buildup period again, and your dogs health might deteriorate if it benefited from omega 3 supplementation.<br />To sum up:<br />- Consult your vet about the dose.<br />- Use products that contain both EPA and DHA in highest concentration possible and right ratio.<br />- Don't use on and off but permanently.."
