Customer Question

My female mixed breed 10 to 12 yr old dog has started following me and my husband step for step and shivering/panting for hours every night. Storm coming? Pain? I do not walk her as she is not trained at all. (We brought her from our ranch where she and another dog were abandoned by their owner. But she's been here 1 1/2 yrs.) Most of the time she is fine, but for the last few days.
