3 year old boxer whines constantly?

For the last two years my female boxer becomes very whinney at this time of the year. She will stay under the deck in the back yard and if you approach the deck or walk on the deck she growls and sounds very vicious which she is not. She also picks one toy and carries it around with her everywhere all the while whinning. She is not possessive with the toy. She does not want you to play with her and the toy. Someone said she is treating the toy like a puppy. This will last about three weeks. She has no health issues. I feel helpless.

Sounds like a false pregnancy.

Yeah it could be a false pregnancy like the person above just said or she could be in heat.I would be careful and do not give her the opportunity to get out because she will take it if she is in heat and by the time you get her back she could have gotten pregnant.If she is in heat watch out for male dogs coming around your house and its possible one could find away into your backyard.Diging,jumping the fence,busting through the gate.It would be best to get your dog spayed if she isn't.Im not sure if spayed dogs can have false pregnancys.

By the way anybody who is interested in a big fun loving dog check out shadows profile for more information on him and there is a link to the rescue where he is at.
