I have been showing miniature schnauzers in conformation, obedience, and earthdog for forty years, and am a professional dog groomer. I am not a veterinarian and cannot answer questions of a veterinary nature. However, I can give my opinion or share some experiences on some health issues. Everyone should remember that this is a volunteer service, and few of us are up late into the night. Medical emergencies require a veterinary visit, or at least a telephone call... not an internet question which might not be viewed and answered until hours later. If your dog is sick or injured, it should be seen by a licensed professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
I have taught obedience classes and have taught people how to groom for many years.

I doubt that there is any relationship between the dog fights and killing the woodchuck. I have had dogs here who would attack and kill "critters", too. Getting rid of the woodchuck was a good thing!
Getting a dog is much like taking on a small child, and, frankly, I don't think you are home enough to properly socialize and train a dog. A dog that is left alone for hours can find interesting (but not
Trying to figure out the dogs that went into a mixed breed is quite a crap shoot, particularly when the photos are sideways<grin>. Mixed breeds are rarely a combination of just two breeds. It might have
