Last sunday we went to look at a dog I was inerested on using as a stud for Honey my smooth chihuahua. I had sent photos of him to her breeder and she liked him a lot and I liked his pedigree. When we got there she told me I coould buy him for less than I would have paid forr a stud fee as she had just had a new born baby and Dexter was peeing in the house and she couldn't cope and sso he came home with us. We now know he hs been hit and knocked about for being dirty in the house hee is brilliant with my husband and with my other dogs but he was very scared of women. He was frightened when we put him into the car and nipped me then the next day he slipped his lead while out walking him and led us a merry dance around the cars on a busy main road. Anyway he ran towards me and I knew what was going to happen but it had to be. I grabbed him by the scruff of his kneckk and he bit mee quite badly. Before people say he is not suitable as a stud he was fear biting he was terrified and I knew it was going to happen but he would have been killed if I hadn't grabbed him. The next day he pooed in the house when he realised I had seen it he ran up the corner cowering away I just said ' Oh you've had a poo well it doesn't matter we can clean it up' Well he wagged his tail at me and then when I sat down came and jumped on my knee. Now we are best friends he knows he'll not be smacked he is not dury in the house he goes out for wee's and poo's and will ask to be taken out. Just goes to show with a little love he is responding to us and being a good boy clean in the house he has put weight on as he was very skinny he was just pushed out because of a new baby he had always been the womans baby but when the new baby arrived he was no longer the baby and reacted by being dirty in the house. He is now a happy loving littlle dog who knows his place in the family. This is Dexter when he first arrived you can see just how frightened he is.
