Let me just preface this by advising that this ituation is not about Rosie - I don't know this dog at all, and I have no background as to what led up to this current situation, BUT, I am sure that someone here may have something useful to contribute to this situation...
A friend of my younger step-daughter owns a young adult choc lab, who, as a youngster, bit their tail relentlessly.
The behaviour stopped for a while, but then resumed, and ended yesterday with the end of the dog's tail having to be removed. The doglet in question is very unhappy and no doubt very traumatised by what has happened.
I am at a loss to provide any useful advice, let alone not knowing even anything half-decent to offer in terms of support other than "how awful"... can my fellow doglet carers offer any advice? Ideas?
I am going to send the link to this thread to my SD, who can send it to the doglet owner, and hopefully they will join in to provide some background and ongoing info so that their doglet can receive 11/10 dogforum support and encouragement going forward.
Mods, please feel free to move this thread to wherever you feel is most appropriate - it could be diet, it could be behaviour, it could be situational/emotional - or all of the above... so I thought it best to start in "general" and see where it leads.
