We have a male rottie that is about 6 years old. I'm not absolutely sure because i rescued him myself. He had some anxiety issues before i rescued him and all was well for the years where we lived before moving into this country setting. Since moving i now have Deacon, Mike's belgian,and over 30 chickens. Mack is also not dealing well with the fact that deacon, allmost 2 y/o now is most assuradly becoming the Alpha male. There is no aggression on either dogs' part but Mack is very anxious over the fact. To git to the point, i am now so busy that i don't have the close one on one time to spend with Mack that he NEEDS. As a result, his anxiety issues have reared thier ugly head and he is now quite uncomfortable. He is back to licking his hips excessively and losing weight. because of his anxiety he is also "acting out", getting into trouble doing little misbehavioral things around the house and yard. He is very obedient and gentle when he is relaxed and given the one on one attention and love that he needs. All i want for him is to be happy and loved and healthy. And all he wants is to be able to relax and play with his big ball. This is Mack..aka, Boo............anyone interested ?
