My dog started barking and growling at anyone near her, and when my family or myself walk up to her she starts shaking and peeing. Before this started I asked my little brother to take her out potty, and when he went to clip the leash on her she squatted and peed on the floor.
I did what I always do when one of the animals pee or poop in the house. I tapped her nose, stuck her nose in the pee, and pointed at it and signed no. Because of her deafness I use hand signs for commands.
I don't understand why she is acting like this. She usually doesn't potty in the house, and no one has been aggressive or abusive towards her.
Does anyone have any info or tips on what is going on?? If I can't figure it out I have to find a new home for her because I have a one year old brother, and she has been growling at him as well...
