I'm worried. We just got a 9 week old female. I thought when I got her home her underside of her tail still felt scabbed. Tonight it was an open sore on te underneath part. Should I be concerned or will this heal on its own.
She is also so shy she really isn't playful. Will she develop that playful stage or is she just going to be a very shy but loyal dog.
I would have her checked by the vet. Most puppies should be playful. Now sometimes they can be a bit shy at their new home for a day or 2, but usually not more then that. They scabs could be a major concern. Did you get a health certificate with purchase? had this puppy ever seen a vet before? Usually a good breeder will tell you that you have to take the pup to the vet within x amount of days after purchase to warrenty a contract.
