Guest Norzy Posted September 1, 2013 Share Posted September 1, 2013 (edited) Hello all! We just got a second hound a week ago after getting our other hound 2 years ago. Our new dog is a greyhound/wolfhound girl who was hoarded on a property in Kansas. I think she was either kept outside or in a horse trailer? She was estimated by our rescue to be 1-2 years old. I should also mention that she is very curious but shy at the same time - like she'll run up to something with her tail between her legs to investigate it, but then turn around just before getting there to go cower in a corner. So, whenever we let our dogs into the backyard, our old dog would go potty almost instantly with no issues, but new dog would run around and look at/sniff things and then lay down for the entire time. Occasionally I have witnessed her pee or poo, but not consistently like my other dog. Last night she had 2 accidents: 1. When we loaded the dogs into the car to go to the dog park, I think she pooped in the trunk (we found a small fresh poo nugget). 2. After returning from the dog park, she was home an hour before she peed on the floor of our bedroom. This morning I let her out and went out there with her to make sure she goes. We were out there about 15 minutes and all she did was stare at the squirrels and then lay down on the grass. I went inside to see if it would help to give her some privacy (maybe she was a shy potty-er) and she just laid in the grass sphinx style in the same spot the entire time. Ideas??? Thanks in advance!
