Nine months ago I rescued a five-year-old Labrador bitch who had spent her life in a cage, in a barn, being used for breeding.
After quite a few problems and being spayed, she is now a friendly, happy bitch.
Sometimes in my house, in my garden, or in the local park she is suddenly like a “whirling dervish”, makes about four to six circles, and is then exhausted.
My vet has checked that there is no medical problem but as my bitch has the beginnings of arthritis in her hind legs, I worry that this excessive moving in circles will affect her legs.
Have any of your readers ever experienced this problem with rescued dogs who have spent their time in cages?
