4 month old puppy biting and barking
Hello! I adopted an 8 week old Bluetick Hound/Boxer mix from the humane society. She was in a litter of 12 pups, I am not sure if the mother died or not. She was brought to Wisconsin when she was 6 weeks old. She is now 4 months old and have been struggling a lot of her biting and barking. If she does not get her way she bites and draws blood. I can't get her harness on because she will bite. When I take her outside she plops on the grass and will not move at times, when I try to pick her up she bites and growls at me. When I am sitting on the chair watching tv, she comes up by me and I hold a bone for her to chew, when she gets bored with chewing on it she starts to bite me and growl. She will not listen to me. She does know how to sit and am trying to train her to come. There have been many times that I was going to give her up because I am not sure if she has behavior issues or if this is normal. She acts like an alligator whipping her head and trying to bite a lot and it is scary at times. Please let me know if this is normal.
