Unhappy A Miserable Dog-Needs Your Help

Hey I am Hina. I have a very serious problem but before telling the problem let me narrate a story to you which lead this problem.
I am 14 years old girl who lives in a Muslim country Pakistan.Here in muslim countries dog are not liked much.In muslims there is a myth that says that In a house where a dog lives, The GOOD angels ddont enter.Another one that says that If a dog licks you or anything else, you have to wast it 7 times to make it pure or clean.I personally dont believe on these myths but my parents do. Now the story starts, some time back my father brought a female puppy, at that time she was just 2and a half weeks old. I know its very young but there is no such law that discourage it.We kept here inside the house because she was very young at that time and also it was very cold those days. We named here Molly. When she was about 3 months old, my parents started putting here outside the house in a big dog house.After that every thing started getting worse.My parents brought lots of hens and ducks in.They kept them on the same place where Molly was.I then gets busy in my studies and compeltly neglected Molly.After sometime my parents stoped caring her. When didnt gave her bath and only give bread in her meals.There was no timming of her meals.No one took her for a walk. They just let her open on the plot next to our house( there are no houses near ours). They didnt use chain and keep her shut inside her house and only open her when they thinks she needs to relive herself.And left her open at nights so she can gaurd our house without any kind of chains. They didnt wash her house and keep her dirty.Even they dont allow me to play with her or even going near her.

Now she is 7 months old and is a very dominant and aggresive dog. But she is also very affraid from other peoples and things.She is a middlesized white Russian spitz
dog.When I go near her she starts chewing me and forces me to pet her. Sometimes she harms me and barks on me.She dont listen to anyone beside my mother because intialy my mom was used to punish her with a stick.I am ver deppressed.I know she loves my and I also loves her a lot but I am unable to do anything for her. The methods I have found on different sites isnt helpoing me much because when I try to train her she bites me.She have long nail with which she scratches me.She dont pay attention and is competely out of control. Please help me. My father is saying that if she keep her self like this he will give her away.I dont want this to happen. I know it is not her mistake that she is like that its ours but what can I do know.I want a compelete guide.You help can save a dogs life from ruining completely.

Please dont mind my english, it isnt my mother language and I am not very use to it.

Thanx Everyone.

ummm where do I start. I don't want to condem you as you are the child and really have no say in they way your parents believe or do things so please take what I say as tring to be helpful not assulting you.
I don't think that you will be able to retrain poor Molly because it would take commitment on your parents part as well. Molly has not recieved the love she needs or social skills and has been left to fend for herself it seems and has started to go wild from what I am gathering from this. In order to get her trained to be a good loving dog it will take full time comittment and also she needs to feel human love . She feels nothing for you now because she wasn't given that. Maybe re-homing Molly would be better if you could find a person that would be willing to work with her but if she will be just tied out side then I fear there is not much hope for poor Molly. I would not say that you should not have a dog but wait until you are grown and on your own. You can not get your parents to understand that the way this animal was treated is wrong and it sounds as if your country does not see dogs as we do, but by you coming here you are looking for help because you know this is wrong so maybe in the future you can be a good dog owner.
By the way you do quite well with your English. The fact that you can speak and write in another language tells me you are a very smart young person.
Good Luck.

Thanks for your advice Aussie Red. I can understand what you are saying, you are 100% right. I loves her alot and cant think about living without her. I dont think so that i will be able to find such a person who can keep Molly as she should be kept. As I told you before in Pakistan people treat animals very badly.
If I say that somehow I will convince my parents to give her love and attention that she deserve. Then what should be our next step. Should i first only try to gain her confidence?

Again thanks for your response and compliment.

Also I want to ask that what is a right way to care a dog. Because my mother says that I have ruined her by giving her more attention when she was young. Maybe she is right. But I feels that it is cruel if you bring a dog who is only 2 weeks old and then avoid her. She naturally very dominant. but know the situation is more worse.

I am so sorry but, your mother is wrong, by giving it more love you are showing the dog that she can trust you and you can trust the dog. I agree with Aussie Red. Do you mean how you should groom her? If that is what you are asking then when you give her a bath do all her grooming at one time. I will tell you how I do my dog's grooming. First I get all her grooming supplies out on the table outside so that everything is in reach and ready to use. Second I put my dog on a 4 or 6 foot leah which is tied to one of the rails on our deck. Third I start with the nail trimming my bc mix Lizzie, did not liked her nails to be trimed but I had to start touching her nails all the time, so now she will let me so them with ease. Fourth I brush her teeth with a tooth brush that is made for dogs with tooth paste that is made for dogs. Fith I do any trimming that I need to do to her fur which varys from time to time. Sixth I brush her before I give her a bath, you can use any kind of brush you have really. Seventh Bath time, I wet her completely then I use a mild dog shampoo on her because she cannot have a heavy duity shampoo it will irritate her skin to where she will not stop itching. Eighth I dry her off with a towel, I use two because she has long fur. Then I take her for a long walk because she goes crazy with energy!! Hope this will help you. Good Luck!!!!!

Thank you soooooooooooooooo much Lizmo. I love that there are people in this world who dont treat a Dog like a dog. You all are very sweet. Molly dont like to be groomed. So mom most of the times scold her for her bad behavior or sometimes beat.

I am SO sorry you are having to go through this because just the way you wrote the post says that you care for this dog greatly!!! Do you ever try to groom her or evern feed her by doing this it may help her to trust you some but remember it will take a time and if you are going to try to make this work you need to try to do all Mollys thing like feed her groom her ect. Good Luck!!!

I have a website for young people and you might want to look at it to see if it's something that could help you. The address is http://loveyourdog.com. You might be able to share it with your parents, but if not, you might get some ideas for how to help your dog. You sound like a wonderful young person with a lot of compassion and kindness. I wish you well,
