She was on a schedule, I feed her at night when I get home from class, around 9. That way if she eats, I can take her out to poop before I go to bed. She's been eating alot better lately. I feel like making this post jynxed it, haha. I've even been able to get her to eat twice a day sometimes. I'll get her some eukanuba dry puppy food next time I go to Petco. My mom recommended the brand because it's the only one that doesn't give her dogs stomach problems.
I don't think she has a stress/anxiety problem because she seems relaxed and always has people or dogs to be around. She plays and cuddles with the two other dogs normally. What are the symptoms of anxiety besides nervousness/clingyness?
Also, her vet said she's in low low range, but normal weight. She said just try to get her away from the big dogs to eat and have food out as often as possible. I always leave a bowl of food and water out in my room, but the door is closed when I'm not in it. (the big dogs come in and empty out the trash/eat her food).
I got her from a breeder. My mom thinks it was a puppy mill, but I always thought those just let any dogs breed. The lady had cockapoos, bulldogs, and something else I forget, and she seemed to breed selectively. She had 2 litters when I went, and was happy to show me around. The only thing I thought was suspicious was she was holding the dog when I came, which my mom thinks is because she didn't want me to come in, but we saw the other litter and they looked fine. I got to play with them while my mom did paperwork. (she was a gift to me, so my mom paid). I think she was holding the puppy because she just had a bath. She mentioned she had been bathed and de-flead that day, so she probably didn't want her going back with the rest of the litter. I knew they were being kept in a horse stall, so they would get dirty pretty quick (sawdust and hay).
Oh, and when I refer to big dogs, we have 2 black lab/poodle mixes. The poodle really doesn't show, though. Everyone thinks they're labs. They play with her and they get along great. When I take her on weekend trips, they are excited to see each other, which hasn't been the case with some foster dogs we had. No cause of stress there.
