Why is my Lab scared?
I found a yellow lab on side of the road about a month ago. She was severely underweight and, come to find out, she has pretty bad heart worms. Anyway we're getting all that stuff taken care of...she's gaining weight and doing heart worm treatments with the vet. Someone mistreated her and she has a very shy side to her. She's scared to death of a spotlight and a flash from a camera. Truck lights don't bother her though. We can't figure out why she's so scared of a light though. Does anyone have any ideas about how she became so scared of a spotlight?

maybe her previous "owner" shined a light on her when she slept

Hi Friend,

Maybe someone has spotted her at night and shot at her, to drive her off. You said she was a free roaming dog. Some people don't like having strange animals around their home. You never can tell what some folks will do, now-a-days.


Ps. Or maybe a lightning storm, has had some impact in the dogs life, somehow.

my best bet would be the thunderstorm

My dog was scared stiff about thunder. Camera flashes and lights flickering would cause the same effect.

One of my german short hairs is the same way. Thunder, firework's booms, pretty much any real loud noise like that makes him whine and whimper and crawl under my feet, but the odd thing, you can shoot a shotgun over him all day long and not a twitch out of him. I was kinda guessing it was just that low frequency that bugs him.
