My 4 yr old maltipoo rescue has terrible behavior. She barks

Customer Question
My 4 yr old maltipoo...
My 4 yr old maltipoo rescue has terrible behavior. She barks at everything and everybody. She doesn't like most other dogs and would attack them if she was loose. She has even snapped at me. She goes after my husband when he is going out the door. Most of our friends are afraid of her. I tried Valium and it didn't even make her drousy. The vet gave her Prozac but then she wouldn't eat. My husband wants to take her back to the shelter we adopted her from 3 years ago. I took her to training at Petco, but that didn't help. I'm at my wits end. I love her. This is very upsetting. I never had a dog that acted like this before . What can I do?

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible.....

Is she on any sort of schedule?

Is she crate trained?

When does she snap at you?

What do you do when she acts aggressively?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She's not really on a schedule. I'm 70 and my husband is 75. We both still work. So, it's hard to maintain a schedule. She only goes in a crate when people she doesn't know or like come to the house. She snaps at me when she 's barking incessantly in the yard and I go over and try to pick her up to bring her in. Tell her no. She has had valium which didn't faze her and Prozac which makes her stop eating. I'm very lucky to have a vet that knows just how to handle her. He is wonderful.

How much time are you able to devote to training?

Hi, I am sorry, your Expert has opted out. You do not have to accept the phone call offer if you would prefer not to. Would you like me to find a different dog trainer for you, or would you like to cancel?
Best,

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
