Moxie Crimefighter Posted July 12, 2007 Report Share Posted July 12, 2007 I am new around these boards and have had moxie for about 1 year now. My longtime boyfriend and I got her from the humane society when she was about 6 months old. Our problems (in hind sight) began before we ever even brought her home. When we first took her out of the kennel to take her outside for a little bit she pee'd on my boyfriends sandal in submission. And this has been the major problem ever since. I have tried and tried to fix this problem, but it is coming down the point where we have discussed trying to find a new home for her. This is the last thing I want to do and the discussion was mostly me balling my eyes out. Moxie has gotten so bad around my boyfriend that it is nearly impossible for him to interact with her. One moment they will be playing ball or playing in the house and all the sudden she acts like she is in big trouble and pees on the floor. When he walks in the room she shys away and goes to her bed. He hasn't ever hit her and it started the day we met her and has just gotten worse. She is definitely a submissive dog and even our friends Pomeranian rules her when she is around. I have taken her to a training class at a local pet store just for fun to see if that would help just to get her out and doing something different, but when she was back around my boyfriend it was the same. She used to pee when someone came to the door or got too excited and she is a lot better about it now and its almost only when my boyfriend is there. He is running out of patience for her as he has tried to work with her but she just freezes and pees. Is there anything that I can do??? It would absolutely break my heart to have to get rid of her, but we are starting to fight over it almost nightly. He will walk by her and she will pee on the carpet, he will try to play or pet her and she pees on the carpet. I just dont know what to do.
