Hello, new to this forum and hoping for advice from you lovely people!
I have a lovely 1 yr old girl
Since we had her, at 11weeks old, she has seemed nervous and v barky. Tried to socialise her well but she used to shake and ask to be picked up. As she has got older she has become aggressive at times, particularly if someone comes to our house (or even walks past our house). She often just doesnít seem happy, if that makes sense.
She came from a KC approved breeder, and as far as we know has not experienced any trauma.
In desperation, I got a behaviourist involved who suspects there may be a medical problem as her behaviours are quite extreme. Recent blood tests show an issue with her liver, so have booked an ultrasound as a liver shunt is suspected
I wanted to ask if anyone has experience of a Havanese with a liver shunt, and if this could explain her nervous and aggressive behaviour?
Iím first time dog owner so itís a very steep learning curve for me!!
Many thanks x
