13 year old rescue Schnauzer named Bella
I have not found this problem addressed in the FAQs. We adopted Bella about 18 months ago. Our other Schnauzer has accepted her well even though they don't pal around a lot. Here is the problem. She sleeps on the bed with us. Frequently when we lift her on or off she lets out a blood-curdling scream. This is not new. When we first got her, we took her to be chipped and she screamed when she saw the insertion device, no one touching her. Now it is happening more frequently and she nipped one of us recently. She goes to the vet regularly and they have not found any problems. Is it possibly just her reaction to a very troubled life? I was told she was a breed dog in a puppy mill most of her life and physically abused as well as ignored by humans. She has come a long way.
