Hi I joined this forum to get some reassurance and advice about our 7 month old Puppy, originally born in Romania, who we rescued from a UK shelter just under 3 weeks ago. He's our 2nd Dog together but our 1st rescue and we were prepared for him to be wary of strangers or even other dogs to start with, but he's bizarrely fine with anyone who approaches with another Dog and will quite happily play with them, but he barks his head off or cowers away and hides from anyone not accompanied by a canine companion!! Has anyone else experienced this or anything similar? I suppose it makes sense that he's used to living with dogs, as I think he was born in a rescue centre in Romania and then came to one over here and this is his first home environment, but we don't understand why he's so afraid of people *only* if they don't have a Dog! He's met our friends that have dogs and gets on well with them, but he's still reluctant to let our Parents and other friends near him! He also barks incessantly at our Neighbours if he can see or hear them in the Garden and it's becoming a bit of a problem, so we'd like to do what we can to help him. Any ideas or suggestions?!
