Dog growling/biting

October 27th, 2007, 01:06 AM
Well I am 17 years old and have a problem with my families dog. She is a Jack Russel Terrier. For awhile now she has been acting very weird. My mom will give her a few milk bones in the morning and will not eat them. When I normally get home to school she will be excited to see me but when I go to pet her she runs away from me, hides, and then eats her bones. If I leave the room she stops eating them. If I try to go near her or pet her she grins her teeth, growls at me, or snaps/high pitch yap. She always seems to have this really confused look on her face when I go near her also. (ears back, eyebrows slanted, tail in between legs) The really weird thing is that she will not do any of this with my parents. My parents have noticed this also and are always joking, "Did you eat one of her bones or something?" The answer is no, I have never done anything to her to cause these actions. What should I do?
