I have a English bull terrier *****, shes only 16 months. When we got her the owner said her mother wasnt very good with the pups so she slept with her from one week old. I dont know if this has anything to do with that but she does some really funny things.
She must carry a teddy around ALL day!
She dosent chew them but she sucks them while falling asleep?? Really sucks them. Lol
She also does the paw thing that cats do, like Kneeding dough. Lol
and cant be left alone :(
These things arnt a problem (yet?) but i was just wondering if its related to being hand reared? or is she just a bit clingy and strange? Shes lovely and is soft and playful too :) x
The first 8 weeks really should be spent with the mother dog and siblings. This poor dog missed all the training a mother dog gives. The breeder was clearly very inexperienced or would have known to keep the puppy with the mom dog and only supplement feed. You are very lucky if this is all that is wrong.
