Okay. Long post!
When we brought Mollie home,the very next day, my bro (Billy) picked her up and full on shook her! She acted defensively by giving him a nip on his hand and then he dropped her onto the ground.
Ever since then, she has HATED Billy (I defo. dont blame her!) She growls and barks when he enters the room, but when he takes a step towards her, the brave-barking is left and she runs of shaking and whining.
Whenever we have people over, she barks and growls at the kids in particular, but when they take a step towards her, she runs off shaking and whining at full speed.
Its horrible at nighttime, when we all watch a movie or something. Mollie ADORES everyone in teh family, except Billy. She even loves Matilda, My 1yr odl sister, who can be pretty rough with her. She shakes and whines when she is near Billy. I hate this! I wnat my baby to be happy so bad!
She seems better around adults and female-children around my age && toddlers, of whom she licks and sits while their grubby fingers stroke her.
But male kids, around my brotehrs age seem to trigger her most.
She has made friends with several of mums friends, and one of my bestfriends, btu she still is horribly frightened of kids in particular.
PLEASE help me! I dont want my beautiful girl to be traumatized because of my STUPID cruel brother! I want ehr to be secure and happy. How can I amke thinsg better? Is it possibel to repair the relationship between Mollie and Billy - will that help???
