I adopted a 1-2 year old male from the Humane Society about 3 mos. ago. He has come a LONG way since I've gotten him, He's gained 11 lbs. & now weighs in at 76 lbs. He's a sweet boy and very friendly. Sometimes I don't think he knows he's a dog. I had to take him to the vet today because he ate a corner peice of the plywood I used to cover the holes he puts in the basement wall. When we're not home, he stays in the basement with lots of toys and the room is dog proof (so I thought . Used to let him in and out through the dog door until he scaled the fence. He randomly becomes fearful of strange things - the broom, different rooms of the house, me. Poor little guy is his own worse enemy. The vet suggested considering CLOMICALM today. Not sure about it. Behavior drugs for dogs creeps me out a little. But I will do whatever it takes to make him a happy guy. If anyone has any advise or knows about the drug, let me know. We are also considering adopting another dog so he has a friend.
