My dog use to do that…she is super spoiled rotten:-) Could it possibly be hot spots? Maybe some sulfadene (sp?) will help. Or maybe because she is a “throwaway pup” she may be suffering from anxiety and may need a little more tender loving care.
Some dogs act that way when they were abused and then they were brought into an environment where there is to much going on. I love my dogs also. And am very amazed at their personalities… My dog ZsaLou, can have one flea…and she’ll tear through her flesh to get it.
She also panics when a fly or wasp flies around her..she is part German Shepherd and weighs 60 lbs. So when a fly comes in the house she’ll jump right on our lap….she can be a heavy burden at times:-) Melodie
