Barking Problem - Won't Bark
I don't get it! I thought all dogs barked at some point. I've been fostering Earnhardt (8 year old Dalmatian) for ... ummm 3 weeks now, and he won't bark. His previous owners of 6 years told me that he didn't bark also, but I thought it was just because they never noticed it, cuz he was so neglected and stuck in an outdoor prison in their back yard during that time. He cries and whines, but doesn't bark. Has anyone experienced this before? I'm wondering if there's an internal problem, or whether it's something else. So confused. Anyone have any comments on this?
