We have an almost 8 week old puppy and have prior rottie experiance but Summer is 1 of a kind. everytime i try to pick her up wether inside or out she growls @ me aggressively. she has a clean bill of health except a hernia thats small and being vet monitored,we are careful never to touch it...help!!!
If your puppy is growling at you at this age, something is very wrong. I would take her back to the vet, and get him to see if she has an accompanying infection, because it sounds like she's in pain. I've had 2 Rotties, and the only time they ever growled was when they were in pain. How big is the hernia? Perhaps she needs some support, if it's a large one.
Took her to the vet actually this morning.physically shes healthy, the hernia is very small he says its not a big concern to him, he'll check it monthly and if I notice changes to bring her in...shes growling less today.I'm petting her on her back alot before I pick her up and shes better...not great but better.
