    Hello everyone!

    I just thought I would say hello to all of you and introduce myself.

    I have three furry kids, Lexie, Hannah, and Chloe. The are all Pugs. They are six, five, and four. The first two are from a breeder before I had any knowledge of rescues. The third one, Chloe, was a stray (and she has the street attitude to boot).

    By day, I am a web developer / software programmer. In a nutshell, I develop web sites and web based software. By evening, I help with the Pug Rescue Network.

    That's about it. If someone here is having problems programming in PHP or has a Pug question, I am here. :)

    Oliver and Harley were fosters from the rescue. Unfortuanately, Oliver has since passed. Harley, however, is doing quite well. With the ladies as well:

    As of Monday of this week, I now have a foster to go with my three Puggies. Poor guy was an owner surrender because he smells yeasty.

    http://www.pugrescuenetwork.com/pug_rescue_network_adoption_available_pugs.php?show_detail=103

    He's on some meds and shampoo. I am thinking about getting an alergy test for him so we would be treating the cause of the skin condition, not the symtoms.

    If anyone here is familiar with this kind of thing, please let me know.

    We also have another one enroute with mange. Any suggestions on that would be great!

    Hi Bing, congrats on your newest addition!
    You may want to check the Dog Health forum and see if there is any information there for skin problems or just ask for help there.

    Hi Bing,

    Billie looks like such a sweet guy! I know Linda Arndt has a lot of information on yeast problems at: http://www.greatdanelady.com/articles.htm that should be really helpful for Billie. :)

    I'll second Karen. Definitely check out the info on yeast at the Great Dane Lady site. Allergies are typically a symptom of yeast, not the other way around, so if you treat the allergies, you're still treating symptoms.
