  • I haven't personally noticed that happening to any of my dogs ( I have 3 female large breed mixes), but I'm thinking maybe she has some sort of infection? That would interfere with her house-breaking, and female dogs that are not fixed are very prone to UTI's and such. Perhaps you could take her to the vet and have them look at her. If it is an infection they should be able to do something about it before she ends up having to have surgery. Good luck and I hope the puppy feels better soon!

  • I had a pure bred boxer and had the HARDEST time house breaking him. It took about a year. I never had that problem, every other animal I have own was like a week. I sorry I'm not much help but I wanted to let you know you are not the only one.

  • They have pills you can TRY at pet stores for preventing UTIs and insuring good urinary health... I've never had to use them but as long as your puppy is not running a fever they won't hurt her and might help alleviate some of her symptoms until you can have a doc check her out. Make sure she has access to water during the day. Also, keep an eye on her poo and make sure she has no worms, etc. The only pure boxer I've owned was fairly easy to housebreak, but I got him when he was older so that may have had something to do with it. They calm down a LOT once they get a bit older lol!Good luck again hon and I hope everything is ok!

  • It could be a yeast infection, which are prone in some bully breeds.

    You'll have to have your vet examine her. If you can (I know it sounds gross) take in a sample of the mucus to the vet to identify the problem.

    Good luck to you!
