hello everyone and happy new year
first post and new to forum
wife and I made the choice to get two pups. hers is shih tzu maltese and mine rottweiler. both 8 weeks and just love hanging out together.
my rotti is now 12 weeks and has started to whine at different times. examples..... he would be laying on the floor and just starts whimpering just a bit . then stops , he has also started to nibble on his back side area ( tail docked ) and a couple of times actually cried out as if in pain.
I have had 3 rottweilers in my past two were 2 years when I got them and one was 8 weeks.... now I don't remember this type of behavior in the pup years ago so I have tried to look it up and some say it may be growing pains and just him learning to communicate.
I have patted his back area and it does not seem to be sore or tender to the touch and he plays like a normal pup with his sister all the time and doesn't seem to show same issues.
They are not left alone in house at all as we are home and monitor them always
any thoughts would be great.
