I have this one plant that a friend said is a pineapple guava not sure if she's right then I have this other plant that she says is a Indian Hawthorne. But I'm not sure if she's right I need your you know if she's right. I need to know because I have two small dogs and one of them recently got very sick.
I'll attach pictures thank you

Welcome!

The first one is not a Pineapple Guava and the second one is not an Indian Hawthorne.

If you post more photos of your plants, maybe we can help you figure out what they really are. In the mean time, keep the doggies away from the plants.

How sure are you it was one of these two plants?
Many very familiar plants, with some level of various toxins, are grown in landscapes all over, and rarely result in serious illness in pets, because they just don't eat enough of the plant.

Although blurry, the first one looks like a Pineapple Guava me. I just picked up a couple off my huge shrub.
I too have 2 small dogs and they have never touched the Pineapple Guava even though the fruit drops all over the ground.
