Hi ....I am new to your site and have a question.
I have a new 2 year old fawn boxer...I took from a pound and think he has been mistreated along the way...She was a breeder but couldn't produce.
She is very afraid of everyone and everything...but coming around slowly.

My question is that she is shedding like crazy...Could this be nerves..what can I do if anything
thanks
Hanne

Hi, Hanne. Welcome to the board.

Dogs do seem to shed more when they're under stress, and if she's still getting used to her new home, that could well be the problem. A high-quality diet can help minimize shedding. Do you brush her every day? That can help, too, plus it gives you great bonding opportunities if she likes to be brushed.

We'd love to see pics of your girl if you have any to share! :D
