Hi this is Dr. Jen :-) that is really sad. Poor Petey. It is really hard for dogs who have never been alone to certainly be in a situation where they are alone for extended periods of time. If it would be possible to find an appropriate doggy daycare or someone who would be willing to keep Petey at least while she is at work that would be ideal. If that isn’t a realistic possibility talking to Petey’s veterinarian about medication such as Prozac or something like trazodone for when he has to be alone might not be a bad idea. The last option would be to consider getting him a friend if he likes other dogs so that he is not completely alone when his new owner leaves.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions :-)
