    Default Brutus the holy terror

    In addition to trying to eat every shoe in the house, Brutus ate a sock last night so now we are on poop patrol. He is completely out of control for the last week and a half. I actually called the vet yesterday because he is chewing on things he never did before. I actually caught him trying to eat my bedroom wall. The vet said he thinks it is a combination of being hungry and that the weather is cooler so he isn't so tired and he is acting like a normal bulldog. The vet suggested that I increase his food to 2 1/2 cups per day instead of 2 and I can still give him his toppers in addition to the increase. I am hoping this works and he poops out the sock. Has anyone else had this happen. Brutus is 11 mos old.

    Gunny (6 months) has had more energy too lately and this might be why. That is scary about the sock.

    It was a little sock so I hope he can pass it. So far he is eating, drinking, and pooping normal. He is driving us crazy. I think I am going to have my son take him on a few walks a day to tire him out.

    Hi Rosale,
    Yes, my 17 month old Bulldog, does the same thing. I now crate her when I leave. She never use to eat things when I left for a few hours, making sure nothing was around for her to get into. She was fine for a few months. The first time she started to eat things was a month ago when I came home to my magazines and mail shredded all over the living room and kitchen. I will try to upload a picture. I asked her how she did it and I was amazed she jumped on my kitchen chair and onto the kitchen table where the mail was. The next day I came home to her eating a small hole on our leather couch and made the small hole in the wall larger, that the recliner hits. Finally I bought bitter apple and sprayed it on the couch and the wall. I came home to eating Frank Sinatra. She shredded the jacket of Frank Sintatra's album cover and actually ate a bite of the album. I called my vet immediately and she told me to watch for vomiting. She was fine, but she is now crated when I leave. It is safer for her. I will try again when she turns 2. I don't know if its boredom that made her eat these things? Good luck with Brutus. He's a cutie.[/COLOR]

    Its called the terrible two's. Bullies go through several different stages of development, the first time I heard about the terrible two's I laughed until Amber hit at around 11 months old. Now that I have a little more experience I "think" I am ready for Ruby, we will see. Its basically like they are going through their second puppy stage and I personally think it has something to do with the fact that their head is growing wider along with their other bone structure during their second year of development (just my personal observation, nothing conclusive). Anyway, go back to the basics and if they are tearing things up and have free run of the house put them back in their crate when they don't have direct supervision and make them work for their freedoms. It doesn't last long as long as you are consistent in redirecting their behavior. Good luck!

    Hello!

    My Humphrey is the same age. He has been acting like a nut for the past few weeks as well. Apparently, he has entered his "I'm-going-to-make-your-life-hell-until-I'm-1.5-years-old" phase. We just take him to the dog park a lot more often to let him burn off that energy, and then he behaves like an angel. As our trainer used to tell us, "A tired puppy is a well-behaved puppy."

    Humphrey has also torn strings off of his toy ropes. The other day, he passed a big, long clump of strings from one of his ropes, and it got stuck as it was coming out. Of course, Humphrey thought something was getting him from behind, and he started zipping around in circles chasing his tail, and, of course, this was at the dog park in front of three dozen people! It was quite funny.

    Good luck with the sock!

    Oh boy, I remember that stage. Winston decided that my underwear & socks were the most amazing thing in the entire world and every time I had laundry he'd try to trip me to steal my socks / underwear. Then he'd take off down the hallway with them and just suck on them...thank God he didn't eat them!. I just turned it into a game of chase with him and grabbed a bully stick to get his attention from my clothing. Bully sticks are amazing things...
