I spend a lot of time over my aunt’s house where she has two yorkie maltese mixes. One of them is the most skittish and terrified little dog I’ve ever seen. It’s quite sad. I’m a real dog lover and its terrible to see this dog cower all the time. This poor dog has been that way since she was born (we know the people they got her from).
Some examples are:
She runs into her cage every time you enter the room.
If you come by her, she lays flat on the floor and shakes.
I have a puggle that I bring by there a lot to play with the other dog (they live down the street) and when he gets there… she runs up the stairs and hides under the bed until he leaves…
Is there anything I can do to help her?
