Need some input on my new Jaime!!!
We adopted our little 6 year old Jaime 3 weeks ago from HRI! She is just the sweetest and gentlest little girl! I have 2 other Havanese, Sunshine 5 1/2 years old and Skippy 3 1/2 years old! Sunshine is a female and Skippy is the male! The first 2 weeks with Jaime seemed too good to be true and to be honest still does, she is just so wonderful!
About 5 days ago she started shaking. I first noticed it when I would get ready to leave the house and she would go in her crate, I therefore thought it was seperation anxiety because she's become very attached to me! But then I started noticing it alot more during the day and in conjunction with that she started wanting to go outside more and she would go into the bushes and dig and dig and dig and then lay under the bushes, hidden. I think she would stay there, if I didn't make her come in!
I'm not sure if she's afraid of something in my house. She gets along with Sunshine and Skippy, I have never seen them fight and she plays with them quite often. She adores my sons, 5 & 9, she will lay with them and cuddle with them anytime they are still! I don't have loud noises around my house, especially during the day! I don't work outside the home and my kids are in school all day, so it's basically very quite during the day! Of course, when the boys get home from school, there's more noise but she seems to adore them and they her!
We just love this little girl so much and want her to feel safe and loved and of course happy here! I just don't know how to help her! The shaking seems to be getting worse, each day alitttle more! I don't know what to do!
If anyone out there has any theories, suggestions, opinions or anything I would really appreciate it! Thank you!
