She must have a protective environment - such as an exercise pen and a safe toy to prevent swallowing non-food items.
Bridget is a lovely golden girl of 9.5 years. She will do well in a stable quiet home. She is sociable with other dogs and people. Bridget is prone to some anxiety, which she expresses by swallowing objects that she should not, such as socks and rocks. For this reason, when she is left alone or unsupervised she needs to be secured with only safe toys. The owner passed last winter, and her daughter, who is a skilled dog trainer, has been worked diligently with Bridget to promote her calm return of objects. Probably best if there are no children or their toys around. She will do best in a stable quiet home, such as retirees might offer.
I am a very good girl, and would like to show you how good and how much fun I am. Please be sure to watch my retrieving video at the bottom too.
My swim party with my friends at the local river. What a great day we have when we go out for a hike.
Me and my look alike best buddy. LOL
Fit and trim - that's me. BUT you want to know why am I special needs. Sometimes, if I am pressured, I can panic and swallow the thing that I am carrying. So I've swallowed rocks many times, and the vet did surgery to get them out.
My condition is called PICA. Read more about it here: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/pets/dog-behavior/pica-eating-things-that-aren%E2%80%99t-food
I got this condition with my former (senile) owner, when I was stressed and didn't get help.
