New pup with separation anxiety

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
We recently rescued a shelter dog that has been horribly abused. He has bonded with us so strongly that while being separated from us for about 3 hours in his cage, he pulled a cat blanket into his cage and ate it. He is at the vet's now and will be having surgery to remove the blanket from his belly. We were working upstairs (remodeling) and we didn't want him to get into the paint and the patch-

Here is he is, we call him Quincy. He is a mix- a bearded collie-english sheepdog- terrier mix

Well hello there MA! I was very much hoping you'd pop back from time to time.

Quincy is gorgeous. Poor baby, I'm so sorry he was so abused and that this has led to his anxiety behaviour. I hope he's ok and that the vet can fix him up.

Will he be a permanent fixture with you?

Poor Quincy. It's just beyond my comprehension how people can be so cruel to animals.
I'm glad he's found a good home with you guys, and I hope he overcomes this anxiety. Maybe when he becomes bonded with your other dogs and becomes part of that pack he'll be less anxious about being seperated from you.

Poor baby! Please let us know how the surgery goes, M.A.. In the meantime, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Quincy.

Hello MA - great to "see" you! Aw, poor wee Quincy. I guess the little fellow is in the right place to get the love and attention he really needs right now.

Keep us posted on how he's doing.

Wow! The whole blanket. I know that our basset hound Scoobie if she is separated from Kisses our lab she will destroy things by eating them. We always explained the behavior as being bored I never looked at it as possibly have separation anxiety!!

I hope Quincy has a quick recovery!!

Goodness! He ate a cat blanket?
Poor little guy. I hope that everything goes ok in his surgery and
he recovers well. Poor little baby.
It is so sad that he was abused. It is nice that he has you now.
It will probably take some time for him to adjust.
I have 2 adopted cats that had to be kept in a basement by the
previous owner because they could not find a good
home for them. Someone had developed a strong allergy and could
not be around them. They were not abused but I believe they were really
affected by having to stay in the basement. The kids played down there
and they would attend to them but still was sad for them.
I have had them for about 2 years and they still
hate when I shut the door to the restroom.
They will cry and put their paws under the door. They don't like to be separated by any door from where I am.
That is what they used to do when they were kept in the basement.
I am not sure if they will ever change but it does not bother
me. I feel really bad though when I need to shut the door.

He is staying another day with the vet. He hasn't had a bowel movement yet so the vet wants him to stay there until he does. They are falling in love with him, calling him The Disney Dog. We miss him though.

He spent three days at the vets and is home now and doing better. To say he is bit subdued now is an understatement.

Glad to hear he's doing better, MA.
