Puppy suddenly fearful?
We adopted Sassy on Saturday, and she has been a tad shy but warms up quickly to new situations and people. She was kept outside with her siblings on 5 acres and we live in a townhouse near a busy street, so it is a huge environmental change from her foster mom's house. But today, for the first time, she really freaked out when I took her out to potty. Nothing specific (that I could tell) set her off - she just tucked her tail and pulled to get back into the house. She has done this every time we have gone to potty now, which is often with a 3month old! I feel so bad that she is freaked out, and I want to make sure that I address the fear issue ASAP and in the best way possible.
When she is inside she is fine, and is not scared of us, the cats or other dogs and people at her daycare. Just seems to be outside our house.
