Okay last question, then I’m off to get her.
Last night, I noticed, while doing some tests that I know to judge a dog for adopting, that she had a slight food aggression issue. It wasn’t bad, but she devoured her treats. If she dropped a piece, and I covered it up with my hand, or reached for it, she would hastily attempt to grab it. Only once did she nip at my finger, but I think that was because she thought it was the treat.
She has been in a kennel with another pup, a very high strung puppy. He kept mounting her, he would bite her none stop, and jumped all over us, scratching one of the workers really badly. They said that he has been there since he was born.
The got feed from one bowl, once a day. 🙁 So sad. I don’t know this for sure, but by his demeanor, I would assume that he would try to hog the food.
She also ate her poo right after she ate it- something that my dog has never done. She left the other poo alone, so I’m assuming that was his.
I’m assuming the food aggression and eating poo could have been because she was hungry? Getting fed once a day, Iams, is not enough for a 5 month old puppy.
