RRLCS Posted February 9, 2009 Report Share Posted February 9, 2009 Hey Guys! Im doing good, Cooper and Sophia are starting to worry me. Cooper is a pb Border Collie, Sophia on the other hand is a Saint Bernard Boxer mix. Cooper has been itching everywhere later. His old owners told me he had a hot spot problem, so we bathed him, he has no hot spots as of now. But, he keeps itching everywhere, he does not have fleas for furtther information. His skin is a bit flaky but not horrible, his hair is thinning out where he bites at constantly. Also the owner said they shaved him when they got him when was 8 months, so his under coat was shaved as well, he's 1 1/2 almost now and his coat is thin, will it ever grow back and I need suggestions on his biting/itching problem. He's about 35 lbs I believe. Now I know Sophia is not a border collie but I need help with her to. I've noticed her limping on her back legs after being outside and getting up out of her crate, she has the largest crate available as she is a big girl about 115 lbs, she is the size of a boxer and has the face of one but the colors and markings of a saint, she is very stocky. Her hips do not seem to be bother her at all. She's 19 months old, just a few months older than Cooper. Her eye is also very red, can dogs get pink eye. It might be playing rough with Cooper but it doesn't seem to be improving. Maybe it's cherry eye, but she has no masses in her eye. These dogs play exetremely rough and when I tell them to stop Cooper does but Sophia doesn't listen. Cooper also had an eye injury under his eye but it's healed up. Any suggestions on how to stop them playing so hard, they constantly make each yelp but continue to do it. I've enclosed some picture of them. I've tried training Sophia to stop but she's stubborn and can bully and literally push me out of the way as I am very small. We can not go t oa dog trainer as Sophia is exetremely agressive to people she does not know, Pleasse help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
