Dog Acting Withdrawn and Afraid

My nine year old Chihuahua lately has become withdrawn, hides in the dark for long periods of tlme, won't obey (unusual for her) and sometimes won't eat. She acts scared for no reason. What could be wrong?

She could have been scared of something. She may be sick. I would talk to the vet.

Changes in behavior like you are describing can be a symptom of a neurological condition. Best to get the pup to the vet, ASAP!

If she gets a clean bill of health, explore any changes in the house. New visitors, someone move in or out? Dogs are very sensitive to changes at home. The vet can help with that also. Sometimes a brief course of pheramone therapy or antidepressant can help.

Prayers for all! Post back with an update!
