Good Afternoon Everyone, I guess I just wanted to reach out to see if anyone had any advice about the way I was feeling / if I'm right for my newly adopted dog. I have adopted a cross staff / whippet, she is mainly staff mind. She was spayed before I picked up up, and she is 7. Since having her I've struggled with her behaviour, she won't settle without me. She persistently wants to be in my bed, under the duvet - I can't get her in her bed at all. She whines consistently, I work from home, full time - my first week has been awful, I take a fair amount of calls, she is either screaming/crying laying next to me, or if I close her in the kitchen she will bang the dog and cry. I've got a calming collar, and a plug in calmer - not sure if they help to be honest. So this is day 8 of having her, and I've not left her. So decided to pop out, firstly for 15 minutes, secondly for around 45 minutes, that was after a few hours being home. Both times she was racing around the house, screaming, barking, howling, and the latter time she of course accidentally wet herself. I've read online that staffs are notoriously anxious about being separated, but is it generally this bad? Of course I know I'm in really early days, just, I feel like I'm losing the will to live. I've been thinking she is probably better with someone retired. I hold my hands up, having never had a dog before, I have had a false sense of belief that it would be easier than it is. I've got her toys, plenty of water. It's almost like she is very obsessed with me, or people generally. I live alone, and as I mentioned work full time at home - but I'm really struggling with her to be honest. I know staffs are people dogs, which probably explains why I feel she is obsessed with me, I don't know anything about her previous life, sadly. I really wanted to give her a good life, but it's generally getting me down. Many thanks for reading, let me know if you have any thoughts, or advice - even if you have been in a similar situation and persisted or returned a dog to a rehoming centre. Thanks, Chris.
