  1. So incredibly sorry for your loss Anne - I know how much she meant to you. What a special rescue girl she was, she certainly landed on those little Pug paws when she found you. RIP Olivia :heart:
  2. We rescued a bitch with pretty much the same issues - except that she also had Pica and used to chew and eat whatever was in sight - I seriously considered putting her to sleep her anxiety and Pica was so extreme. It was only a matter of time before she killed herself, after numerous dashes to Emergency to make her vomit ...... Every day when I came home from work I didn't know what to expect. I used the Great Dane Rescue training program, walked her with lots of obedience thrown in every morning, and taught her to be away down the hall from me as "basket - stay". My vets recommended Clomic
  3. But how long ago were her glands done? The owners could clip/scissor around her vulva area and I am sure the vet (hopefully) has checked to see if there is hair in her vulva? Could be lots of reasons for the behaviour (if OCD) - is the dog walked enough and is it mentally stimulated? Schnauzers are easily bored:)
  4. I would suggest anal gland issue, possible hair growing into the vulva area. Also if she is being clipped, are the groomer's cutting too short or with hot blades and burning her? My bitch has suffered from anal gland issues since rescued and I take her to vet to have them done about every 6 weeks. Another vet opinion needed.
  5. How a "professional" can place a small Cavalier into a big pack of large and giant dogs is totally beyond my comprehension. The naive and ignorant comments on the FB page are just astounding. Any comment defending Wags or asking questions regarding negligence are deleted and blocked. They were totally negligent in their duty of care. Poor Wags and his owners
  6. Sheridan I am so very sorry for your loss of beautiful Miss Mini. Forever in your heart XXX
  7. Anne A beautiful tribute to a such a dearly loved boy. May he be forever in your heart RIP beautiful Boof xxxx
  8. Someone needs to go in and adopt him and return him to the breeder - if the breeder will take him back? What a stupid pound - breed rescue works well if they would only co-operate.....
  9. So very sorry for your loss. What a beautiful boy he was, and so blessed to have you as his guardian. RIP beautiful Katjek xxxx
  10. I am so very sorry Anne - poor little Boof. He has had a very blessed life and I hope you have more time together. You are both in my thoughts and prayers xxxx
  11. I used Great Dane Rescue's separation anxiety program (on their website) thanks to SAS :) Can you leave a dog door open for them when you go out? I find that solves a lot of barking issues with my breed.
  12. A beautiful tribute to a very loved, special boy. What a magnificent dog he was. I am so very sorry for your loss. RIP Indy
  13. Thunder shirts work well too - issue is that I would never leave a coat on a dog when I wasn't there and they are a very thick fabric, so too hot for summer.
  14. Many dogs we get surrendered are the same. I have used the Great Dane Rescue program with great success with my own rescue girl - she had Pica/shocking anxiety - she ate fabric/cushions/toys etc. I used the program plus did obedience training in conjunction with Clomicalm on the advice of my vets - her Pica was so bad that we thought she would end up killing herself from an obstruction. We weaned her off the Clomicalm after about 3 months. My dog does have two other minis and I would not rely on this to resolve your dogs issue. It seems you are doing all the right things - access to the h
  15. My 7 year old rescue had extreme anxiety (similar to your dog) and pica - which became life threatening when she ended up in ICU after eating some fabric. I used a combination of Clomicalm, even more exercise and the Great Dane Rescue site's guide for Separation Anxiety (thank you SAS). After about two months we weaned her off the clomicalm. This combination worked very well for my bitch - maybe you could try it for Scottie? She is now calm and much more relaxed. I could not leave a thundershirt on her as it was too hot.
