My dog has actually been acting really weird as well, it's freaking me out, and I'm at my wits end with her. I don't know what do do to calm her
No, I'm not about to make some snotty comment, I am dead serious. For about a month now, maybe a tad longer, as soon as the sun starts to set, she
starts going crazy. She refuses to go outside to do her business. If you leave it, then she does it in the house, which is very unusual for her.
She came to us, already trained, we adopted her from husky rescue see, and we've had her for almost three years now. So when I say, it's very
unusual for her, I mean it's very unusual for her. I know this dog, I know her fears, I know her quirks, she was abused, so there's certain things
we can't do around her, she just gets so scared, she starts climbing the burglar guards in front of the windows. Or the Security gates in front of
the doors. Suddenly about a month ago, she starts doing this, every night as soon as the sun starts settings. She doesn't want to be indoors, she
doesn't want to be outside, she goes into such a frantic state, she hyperventilates, she has been trying to chew through my backdoor! Both sides!
She attacks the gate, a steel gate, with her teeth. We even tried putting her in the garage, to see if that soothes her, since she doesn't want in
or out. She goes crazy in there as well. She physically hurts herself. We have found blood from her scratching and chewing on the doors.
I am seriously worried about my babygirl. I don't know what to do anymore. Have you ever seen a husky climb a 6 ft gate? Or attack it for no
reason? When we open the gate, thinking that's what she wants, she refuses to go out. We have another dog, a labby, and he is quite happy, his old
self, no problems. I call him the flasher, 'cause when ever you come near, he rolls onto his back, lol. Obviously not to flash, he LOVES belly
scratches. He's fine, no problems. So I honestly for the life of me, can not figure out what on earth is going on with my husky.
Any ideas? If no ideas, some tips on how to calm her down, would be fantastic, I could do with a full night's rest. It doesn't carry on all night,
luckily, but it comes and goes throughout the night, as soon as the sun comes up, she's her old self again. It's just too weird to comprehend.
There was one incident, I had to go out into the garage to get some painkillers, for my head, in the early morning hours, I took the labby with me,
not wanting to get my husky all worked up all over again, I hate the garage, but I hate any garage, so I don't think there's specifically anything
wrong with our garage. While I was sitting in the drivers seat retrieving the painkillers, he out of the blue starts growling and barking at the
wall? It creeped me out, possibly because I already experience the garage as a creepy place, but why was he reacting that way? And never at any other
time. I just got the pills and we went back into the house as quickly as possible.
Before you say keeping painkillers in the car is a stupid place to keep it. Mine was finished, my hubby keeps his in the car, as he sometimes gets
migraines at work, which is when he needs it the most. I don't take the whole concoction he has to, obviously, I just take the painkillers, much to
his disgust. Lol
For obvious reasons, since I can't figure out what's up with my golliwog, I don't know what's up with yours either I think it's weird, and I
understand how you feel, as you can see above, I'm currently experiencing the same thing. If your furry kid, suddenly starts acting weird, it really
freaks you out. I understand, and sympathize. I do have to say, 2007 seems a long time ago for your grandmother to suddenly start spooking your dog
now, wouldn't your sister have noticed something by now if she was? I would therefor think if it is in those lines, it's new. Maybe listen if your
sister suddenly starts talking about weird goings on in her room?
Just seems stupid creating a whole other thread, regarding strange acting furry kids, when yours is basically already going. I just see so many
double posts, and as this would not really quantify as a double post if I had to create one, it just seems redundant to do so. Hope you don't mind,
this is not a hi-jack, I think we can both possibly find answers from any replies. Good luck
