I am a new dog owner. I adopted my first dog just over a week ago. It is a 4 year old female German Shepherd. She had a previous owner so when I got her from a local SPCA so she was house broken, and has some manners.
However I have encountered a problem. She will be lying next to me or other family members (she follows us everywhere) and when she gets up to stretch or move around her fur will be dripping with urine.
I don't have any idea why she is doing this. I have been home all week on vacation and have taken her out regularly (she will whimper or scratch at the door when she wants to go out side for a potty break). She doesn't squat down and urinate like when she is outside, she will just be laying on he stomach or side when she does it, and we don't know when it happens until she gets up or we smell it.
The SPAC we got her from never mentioned any problems and said she had no medical issues (though the people there seemed less then dedicated…) Though I have had her for a little over a week it seems like only the past few days she has been doing it. Any advice or if you know why she might be doing this would be a big help. I plan to call our vet tomorrow but I would like to know before then what might be wrong.
