    DefaultFoaming at the mouth...

    Our new/return foster dog has only been with us for a total of 24 hours. He's exited and interested in the others. But everytime he goes out in the yard, he foams at the mouth...I don't even know if he's gone potty to be honest with you...he's always sniffing everything. I am worried about that.

    Does foaming an indication of more than nervousness?

    Is he "chattering" his teeth at all? Darwin will go around licking where the others have peed and then starts frothing at the mouth and chattering his teeth...gross boys!!

    Other than that, I don't have a clue.

    He's not intact. He's only 10 months old. And no...he's not chattering...I did see his hind legs quivering earlier today when he realized he was all alone (I was standing at the door, but the others came inside)

    I am getting suspicious of the home he was at before (they had him since he was a pup)...loud noises startle him and he sometimes submissive urinates.

    maybe he was way under socialized to every thing from other dogs, to loud noises, and other experiences. if he was also under trained, that would explain the resource guarding. people train and desensitize dogs to give up resources, typically by drilling in the idea that giving something up results in something equally good, if not better. if this was not done, then he would guard items, not knowing that giving it up is a more rewarding behavior on his part.

    My dog foams at the mouth when she gets into something that isnt good for her, ants, bees, bugs that bite, etc. She got into some ants and instantly started foaming, and you could tell she didnt care for it. I provided water, but she turned it down... Even a few times shes foamed at the mouth and I didn't know why. I didnt see anything to be worried about, but obviously something was there that she didn't need... The foaming goes away in like 15-20 mins, and it usually includes sneezing and shaking her head... The first time it was very alarming, but we dont worry about it as much, but we still watch her like a hawk afterwards to make sure shes ok.
