The influx comes as the shelter also received more than 50 strays since the Fourth of July weekend.

BOISE, Idaho — It has been a busy past few days for the folks at the Idaho Humane Society (IHS). With the recent Fourth of July firework celebrations, some of our furry friends experienced extreme anxiety and ran away from their homes.

“So, we’ve had a decent amount of cats and dogs come into us as strays, which is pretty typical this weekend,” said Laurien Mavey, the Public Relations Assistant with IHS.

  • Sunday: four cats and 17 dogs
  • Monday: three cats and four dogs

Even when it is just an excess of play, although, as we said, the Doberman is an active dog and, even more, when dealing with a puppy, the fact that he spends the whole day playing and In this In case, we should never give food, bones, fat, milk or chocolate, as they can cause serious health problems or, in the case of bones, can cause them to suffocate or splinter in the throat of our pet. Something that is not usually taken into account because of ignorance and that is quite important is that the dish of our Doberman’s food is not on the ground, that is, that the dog does not have to duck to the ground to eat. We must bear in mind that it is a large dog, so we must put the plate on a stool or table that is at shoulder height.
