Culpeper Star Exponent

Prepping pups for companionship

Fred is a lovable golden retriever/black lab mix who loves to fetch tennis balls. Puppy raisers Joe and Shantelle Brausen picked up the playful 12-week-old puppy from the Canine Companions for Independence’s Northeast Regional Training Facility in Medford, NY on Dec. 11. The Culpeper couple will raise Fred for about a year and a half before returning him to the national non-profit program, which prepares dogs to work with children and adults with disabilities.

My dog seems depressed

Q:  I may be over reacting but my dog seems to be showing signs of depression.  She seems to have an overall lack of interest in everything.  I gave her a bath today.  Normally once I'm done, she races around the house like a little spaz.  But today, nothing.  I decided to take her out for a car ride and a walk, which normally she loves.  She didn't come when I called her and when I showed her the leash, there was no reaction at all.  She is a three-year old Lhasa - which is normally a pretty mellow breed anyway, but this is just completely abnormal behavior.  She has shown no signs of a physical illness, her stool seems normal and she hasn't thrown up.  I'm really concerned.
