Some advice please. We took a rescue bitch in some years ago. She'd had an awful start to life; starved and badly beaten. Although she did improve and is a great dog with both the family and my other dogs, she remains aggressive towards others due to fear and is particularly wary of men in suits. The hero who abused her obviously wore a suit. She is also fixated by food.
I got her spade as I considered her unsuitable for breeding, especially her temprement and essentially keep her as a run mate to my main working male. It's a shame as she proved herself smart and keen to learn.
She's an old girl now; estimated at approx 10-12yrs old and her hips are failing (another reason I'm glad I didn't breed her). She still gets around and is happy enough but is now unsteady, especially her rear right leg which she holds out at an angle when stationary and occasionally fails her when running.
So, is there any advice or recommendations you can give me to prolong her comfort and standard of life?
