My boyfriend and I have recently adopted a 1 year old GSD X and ever since we've gotten her (2 weeks) she's had an unusual cough. We are more than likely taking her to the vets as she has a stage 2 heart murmur but just curious as to whether this has happened to any other dogs? She only ever coughs when somebody greets her outside or if she's let inside after being alone. It never happens after exercise or anything like that which would kinda explain it a bit more. Also as it has happened since we adopted her we assume that it would've happened at the shelter as well? Though we were not really told anything besides she had the stage 2 and we couldn't really treat her until she got older and it worsened... The cough goes for about a minute until she calms down.
Thanks for your time
