    Paranoia in my Golden
    EddieB posted:
    I reciently got a Golden Retriever from a Golden Retriever Rescue for a companion for my other Dog, and the two dogs interact wonderfuly.

    She was rescued from a puppy mil as a Breeder. However after her first litter she was unable to produce any more, the people at the puppy mil abused this dog horrably when she could not produce any more puppies and as a result has become paranoid of any person. Sometimes when I watch her, her tail is wagging so hard it literally wags her back side as well. But she always stays at least an arms lenght away. She has found a den in my laundry room I try to get her to be interactive and social but she always returns to my laundry room I have even gone so far as to carry her to my room at night so she can sleep in the same room as my other dog and me.

    I have had this Dog for a little over a Month and I am almost at my wits eend on what else to do. I'm starting to think that sometime durring the abuse the puppy mill owners had given her brain injury and I need to take her to the vet to have that checked out. I would think though that the people at the rescue would have had her throughly checked by a Vet to determine if a brain injury had occured.

    Other then this though she is a Happy Healthy 2 year old Golden Retriever...
