Our Big Dipper is coming back to the rescue tomorrow. Sadly, his new housemate, a shihtzu, has not adjusted well to him being in the home and she is so afraid of him she is secluding herself. He isn’t doing anything, but if he even looks in her direction she stresses. Dipper has done well respecting her space but her anxiety levels are so high it is heartbreaking.
After talking with Dipper’s adopter today we are both in agreement that a new addition to the family at this time is just too much for her to handle after being the only dog for so long. This is for the best for Lola. We will check in and make sure that she is okay and readjusting after Dipper is removed.
