Customer Question
We have a Silky...

We have a Silky Terrier that we got from a rescue. She lived in a kennel for five years and did not have any socialization with humans. She has made a lot of progress since we got her in April, but we still can not touch her. She follows us all over and after six months she found her voice and now uses it a lot. She also has begun tearing paper when ever she finds it. But I can not get her completely house broken. She has a doggie dog and goes in and out all the time. I have given her treats when she pees outside, I also put a puppy pad down and she tore it up. Any suggestions of what I can do. She does poop outside. Marilu Franks,***@******.***

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?

Lady She is a beautiful dog.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lady?

She is very smart

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.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

JustinKernersville, NC

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.

EstherWoodstock, NY

Thank you so much for taking your time and knowledge to support my concerns. Not only did you answer my questions, you even took it a step further with replying with more pertinent information I needed to know.
