Anxiety.. or something else?
Our new puppy, Zen, is very outgoing. We've only had her for a couple of days, but I'm very lost as to how to 'fix' her barking and howling. She's very attached to me, and if I leave the room, and she doesn't follow, or we try to crate her, she whines, barks, and howls. Constantly. Until I come back. She didn't have any litter-mates (they got very sick when they were a couple of days old), also, so I'm wondering if that may affect her. She's only six weeks old (I know, very young, but her mother was getting snappy with her). She was given to my room mate. She still has her tail, and natural ears for the time being. I think my room mate is planning on cropping her ears. Will having her tail be harmful for her later on in life?
