hi, my mother-in-law has recently bought a 5month old female miniature dachshund named Ella about 2 weeks ago. When we first got her, she would not come near any of us and was very scared and would run away or yelp when one of us tried to touch her. Well now after about 2 weeks, she plays wit everybody and has shown alot of improvment but for some reason, she still will not let my little brother-in-law, who is 9yrs old, give her a kiss or pick her up. She yelps and tries to gently nip him which none of us know why. Also when my husband goes over without me, she will not go near him or anything. But then when i show up, she gives my husband affection and will play with him. We dont kno whats going on and why shes like that.
She's an awsome dog when shes not scared or anything but we wonder why she acts the way she does somtimes. Can yall help me out pls?! Let me in on what yall think :) thank you <3
p.s me&my husband also own a miniature dachshund named Pennie and shes is only a month younger than Ella but shes totally different. Pennie loves everyone and everything and gives alot of kisses so we dont kno why Ella acts the way she does.
all animals always need a chance to have a place they can call home. ADOPT A TRUE FRIEND!
