Ok so we all know about Mexi, the puppy I rescued right? Well, today she kind of had a major relapse. I had her outside, to let her potty and run around for a while. Well, when we went back to the house, she was standing in front of the door, with her back to me. I bent over and grabbed her, and it scared the poop out of her..literally. She then turned and chomped onto my arm, and she would NOT let go. I tried to pry her mouth open to get her off, but she just turned her attention to my other hand then. So, I ended up having to flatten her on the ground and basically rip my arm out of her mouth. She took off running as soon as I let go of her, and she wouldn't come to me. She would come when I called, to within 10 feet, but when I would try to coax her closer, she would run away again.
I don't blame her one bit, it was stupid of me to grab her like that. I'm just wondering how I should treat this. Should I punish her, and if so, how? I had my brother go out and catch her, and put her in the crate. I went in after he caught her and took all the toys and goodies out, so all she had was water and a blanket. She was sweet at me, licking me hands and groveling, so I think she was apologizing.
Anyway, any advice is appreciated. I've never delt with this before.
I just copied and pasted that from another forum. Let me elaborate. Mexico(Or Mexi, as I fondly call her) is a stray puppy I brought home. She had been lying on the side of a road, nearly dead. So, I nursed her back to health, and she has been really good. She was extremely fearful and shy at first, but she has been slowly coming around. I think I got ahead of myself today, and scared her. She is only 10-14 weeks old.
If you have any questions, please ask!
Love me, Love my dogs.
