Q: Shasta's Growling?

October 28, 2011 | By Ches21 | 1 answer | Expired: 1551 days ago


Yesterday I went with my dad to help him move he brought his american eskimo Shasta along and he went in the grocery store while I stayed in the car with Shasta she started nudging my hand which is what she does when she wants attention so I began petting her and she didn't try to snap at me or bite me or anything but she started to growl and she growled the whole time I was petting her she knows me and sees me alot so she does know who I am but this confused me why would she growl at me when she wants me to be petting her?

Maybe she's sore or in pain. Pets sometimes want petting but will growl if it ends up hurting them. That's the only way they have to tell us that something is wrong.
