Hello, my name is Alley and I live in south florida. I adopted Ellie from a south florida bull dog rescue with no history. It looks to me like she was used for a puppy mill. the info I got in regard to her age was 2? 3? all the way to a "geriatric canine"! I have taken her to the vet and her health is good except for dry eye. I am using closporin II but the condition does not seem to be getting better. My vet says it is the only med to use on her eyes. I thought maybe someone on this site may have another suggestion.... any suggestions would be appreciated.
Now to a rather sensitive subject. Ms. Ellie love to lick which is fine, but the licking seems to be "foreplay"! She then goes into a "humping" frenzy and drags her bottom on the carpet. How, embarassing! As I said she has been checked out by the vet (a vet that has personally owned a bullie). Can anyone out there enlighten me on this behavior. I hate scolding her, she is living in the lap of luxury, I am sure, compared to where she came from. I have owned many different breeds in my life time but this bullie is my heart of hearts!
