• Is it possible for a dog to have a form of autism?

    I got a dog from a "breeder" over a year ago. She is now about 1 1/2 years old. (It is a mini doxie) Other than me she will not come to any other member of the family. She will not look at anyone in the face. If I pick her up to hold her she will turn her head so she is looking away from me. She will do this to anyone that picks her up... show more
    I got a dog from a "breeder" over a year ago. She is now about 1 1/2 years old. (It is a mini doxie) Other than me she will not come to any other member of the family. She will not look at anyone in the face. If I pick her up to hold her she will turn her head so she is looking away from me. She will do this to anyone that picks her up or if I hold her up to my grandson she looks away. I can pet her but no one else can unless they catch her and hold on to her. She will come up to someone if they are not looking at her, as soon as you look at her she runs off. She is social with my other mini doxie. (the other one is 3 years old.) She may have been kept with other puppies too long and not properly socialized. There is a possibility that the children she had early contact with were not that gentle with her or her litter mates. My Grandson keeps asking when is Hana going to be not afraid anymore. I want her to be "happy" and well adjusted. At this point is there anything I can do to help her or is this just her "personality". For a timid dog she has never snapped or nipped at anyone.

  • Plumbing, septic help needed.?

    I have what I am sure is a break in the waste pipe from the house to the septic field. (verified with a dye test) the leak is very close to the house, possibly within a foot of the foundation. Anybody have a ballpark idea what this will cost to repair?

  • Why does sugar free gum have a calorie count?

    Sugar free gum has a calorie count listed. Gum is not "eaten" it is chewed. The saliva is swallowed not the gum. My thought is that you expend more calories chewing the gum since it is not eaten. Just wondering....

    I have been told that they are hard to house break. Is this true? I think I would rather get a male would he be easier to house break?
