    She is now sleeping in the same room as my lab without barking and growling at him through the crate which is great progress..

    When out of the crate she's coming up and showing me affection, such as cuddling me and licking me (I can't do much with her obviously right now).

    WOW.... hope you heal up quick!

    She only needs minor dental work

    We've found out she's only aggressive when i'm around.
    She was out with the other dog and a friends dog all day long playing with me out of sight.

    I came out of my room to use the big boy potty, and instantly she got aggressive and protective.

    I think we've found the issue

    wonder if she knew you were sick and was protecting you?

    This is an amazing thread and speaks to the major detective work that happens when you really care for your furry friends... Good luck and good karma for helping this little girl.

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown

    What's the latest? Is she aggressive to men, your looks (no insult intended but is something about you triggering it like glasses, hair, clothes, voice volume, etc.)?

    I have three parrots and I tell my Husband he is too loud. When he tries to speak softly, there is no soft, he just projects loudly so my Amazon will always jump when he speaks, lol!

    That was one of my first thoughts, her behavior is more protective of me now then anything.
    By taking them for walks (my gf has had to do it since I'm a little laid up due to surgery), her behavior is slowly but surely making a 180 for the better, they're now sleeping in the same room with us.
    She sleeps in her crate (door closed), he sleeps in the bed as he always has... she no longer growls at him but rather dismisses his movements, which is a GREAT sign.

    So in short, the behavior is improving.

    This photo may not seem like much, but before she would just sit and growl without the ability to use the potty with him around, unless they were physically in motion walking, now she's becoming dismissive.


    We've learned a little more about her:
    Her digestive system doesn't like soft food, she does tend to process small hard foods easier/better.
    She loves having her butt scratched.
    She drinks her body weight a day I believe.

    Great progress!! Slow progress is always good. With recouping from surgery, just recoup! Sounds like you and your gf have things moving.

    Things have to keep moving no matter what, no use in not moving with it!

    Great update .... walks are the best way to get them to pack up! Lots of drinking.... you may want the vet to check her blood next visit.... and check her tyroid levels too

    If her teeth are bad, she may be in pain, too. It sounds like you are doing all the right things with her.
