    I'm so sorry to hear about Kiah's condition. Will the vet be running some tests on her to be able to make a proper diagnosis? I hope there will be a positive outcome to this.

    please don't make any rash decisions. there are so many dogs already in rescue and they really do not usually take dogs with "aggression" issues (even if its neurological, she could hurt someone, many vets and rescue groups would suggest euthanizing) so you are most likely her best chance. she just may need to go on some medication. just don't make any rash decisisons you are all she has.

As much as this kills me to say, Im not sure i can give her the help she needs. Im thinking about contacting a rescue this afternoon. I feel so broken right now....

    Isn't there a med that will help her? Did the vet give you any options?

    The rescue was more of a rehab if need be, I refuse to let anyone put her down. I'm waiting on the results of the test.
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...

    My girl, Banks is on a neorilogical med for her back pain... not saying this one is the pill for Kiah, but there are options to treat her -- I am praying and sending positive thoughts to you and her.

    I would certainly try and get her into a neurologist. It does sound very very strange. But there are so many different types of meds out there so don't give up hope yet!!

    I can understand that you feel "broken" and like you've tried so hard to help this girl. This may be more of a challenge for you than previous dogs you've been able to help....Please don't allow your feeling of helplessness to color the way you look at this girl. Hopefully the vet will have some options for you to that can help her...don't give up, please.

    I still love her no matter what, I know this isn't her fault. I don't want to give up on her. I just want to get her the help she needs. She has been ok this afternoon and evening, I saw one "twitch" around 4:30pm and her whole demeanor changed, it lasted about 20 seconds. I backed off, and just talked to her till it was over. She has been listening since I got home. She didn't want to walk very far, I did take her for a car ride. She does really enjoy it.

    Of course when we were at the vet, she was on her best behavior as if nothing was wrong. They looked at me like I was crazy when I told them what happened. They all said, "Oh, dogs don't do that". I explained it to a few different people and the one vet tech was giving me a real hard time. When she took Kiah to draw the panel. I pulled the vet off to the side and had a heart to heart with him. He was truly concerned and he met her last week. He has a bully himself and specializes in them. I looked him dead in the eye and told him, Man to Man, tell me what you think, please, I'm tired of people not taking this seriously. He said, "It definitely sounds neurological due to a chemical imbalance or major abuse." Hopefully the tests will give us some answers.

    I talked to a few behaviorists today as well. 2 of them said, "That's impossible, dogs don't do that". I really wish I had gotten this on camera. I can't believe people aren't taking my word for it. As if I'm doing something wrong. I've only had her 3 weeks, why don't people understand and just blow it off? Too much for them to handle?

    Ana, the behaviorist I have been working with finally called me back. At least she has enough experience she has seen situations similar to this.

    It's just a waiting game at this point, thank you all...
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...
