I am a first time dog owner of a rescue CKCS tri puppy. She came via the SSPCA and I am technically her 3rd home in 12 weeks, i.e. puppy farm, sspca, new owner handed her back to SSPCA then I got her. I think I have taken on more than I can handle. Lots of issues but most pressing is the night time screaming/being left on her own. I have had her for 4 weeks and I am exhausted. She is literally drenched in sweat and her paws are starting to crack and bleed with the digging at the cage (which I put her in at night). I feel that this behaviour is more than just attention seeking as she is not just wimpering she is going mental frantic in the cage. I can't put up with it one more night so I am not going to cage her, I have bought a nice cosy basket for her and 2 baby gates so she can sleep in the hallway adjacent to the bedrooms. She is approx 18 weeks old. She is a very sturdy dog with a broad chest and massive paws (which I'm not sure is normal for a CKCS), eats well (too much thats another issue). On a positive note I have taught her to sit, give a paw and when I manage to get her outside on time she will pee/poo. So I guess what I am asking is should I rehome her as I am really inexperienced and feel that maybe a better more experienced person could deal with her or if I persevere, realistically what would be a reasonable timescale for these issues to resolve. I really don't want to give up on her it would break my heart as well as hers but I just feel very inadequate.
