You could try the books
Don't Shoot the Dog
The Other end of the Leash
Any of Stanley Coren's Books
Those are a good start.
Also, it sounds like this dog is bored.
Someone needs to give her exercise, meaning walks and play games with her, teach her obedience.
Good Luck!

Marcus was used to being the only dog, so with that said it's an adjustment. If he isn't used to playing constantly, then he probably doesn't want to. You might try taking Chase out for a walk or play ball with him to take the starch out of his butt if you think he's getting on Marcus's nerves. It would also be a good idea to give Marcus an escape ( a quiet room without Chase) so he can have some quiet time if he wants it. Marcus clearly bonded with you, so he will be a little possessive of you. It will be up to you to correct him if he displays any inappropriate behavior around Chase. You might want to give Marcus some special time with you. You've only had Chase a few days, so he's probably still settling in to your routine. Jax was the same way with Koby when we first got him. Lucky for me I had Kali to be his "FUN PLAYMATE". You really can't make a dog play with another. Although, you might try playing some games, like "fine the treat, if they're not food aggressive. Hide treats in the house and have them find them. They have to interact with each other to find them. My dogs LOVE that game. Good Luck and good for you for rescuing another pup. way to go

I think I can speak for most everyone on this forum. We all second guess ourselves when we have lost a dog to illness, esp. when it comes on suddenly. Unfortunately, some dogs can be very secretive when they are sick, at least in the beginning of an illness. So, they can be sick for a while and you may not know it, because they hide the symptoms. With that said, you took her to the vet and did everything you could. So don't beat yourself up. Sometimes these things are out of our control. Sorry you lost your dog. It's never easy to lose a good friend. hughughug

Jax had one between her toes once, which I had removed, because it bothered her. She was 11 at the time and she did fine. Do you have an update?

What kind of food are you feeding besides the boiled chicken/"white" rice? Is it skinless breast? She may have an intolerance to something she's eating. You said you changed her food. From what to what? Did the vet put her on any probiotics? Kali went through a similar thing that took years to figure out. It turned out she has mal-absorbtion/intolerance issues. It can be very frustrating to figure out, because they appear to be healthy in every other way, yet they slowly loose weight, because of the vomiting and/or diarrhea. Try changing her food to something she's never had with less/no grain and less ingredients, like lamb base or fish, if you haven't already, slowly switching her over. More frequent smaller meals is a good idea. Even now, with Kali, if she eats a large meal, she will get sick. she will throw up all her undigested food hours later. I have her on Prozyme enzymes to help with her digestion. You might ask your vet about it. I get it from Amazon, which is "a lot" cheaper than the vet. You could also ask your vet if you could try some Pepcid. Sometimes they get acid reflux. Good Luck and please keep us posted.

I worry about the same things. Esp., since Koby is still in training for his fear aggression (making leaps and bounds). I made arrangements with family to take my dogs if something happens to me. As for if there's an emergency, I would clearly post a note somewhere, including in my wallet, who to contact if something happens. We post the fire stickers on our doors if there's a fire that there are pets in the house. So, post a note by the phone with contact info for your pets if something happens. I don't live alone, so it's a bit easier for me.
