I have a feeling that my newest pooch was abused or treated bad before i got her, She seems scared and skittish about alot of things. The first couple of days i thought well maybe she just needs 2 get used 2 us. And she has, but every now and then lil things scare her, like when we pick her up sometimes i have learned that we have to do it slow or she freaks out, some noises scare her 2, and is very skittish about walkin into rooms like to pass through a door. She is only 7-8 weeks old, but i also felt that the lady lied about her age and about her not being mixed, when i first met her she seemed scared and curled up to my neck and i just felt like " i need to take her home with me", i knew these people were backyard breeders when i met them as they did not want me to meet the parents or meet at their house, they sugested walmart instead. Then they showed me pics of 2 chihuahuas that looked nothing like her or even looked like the momma had even had pups ever, no milk bags nothing. So now i have her and it just upsets me that this pup has been through this i just know something has scared her and know she has been though things. Aside from all that her health is great, has been to the vet and shes doing good. The only thing that comferts her is being in bed with me so maybe that will make it better for her. Maybe im just being a paranoid mommy.
