lately my dog has been going into the den where we have her toys and bringing them back one by one and sleeping with them. she is a dachshund and at one point i thought she was pregnant, but after my sister took her to the vet, she was told that zoe was not pregnant. she is almost 3 years old. and has never had puppies and she is not spayed. why does she act this way? at some points, she acts very protective of the toys.
We see this type of behavior in false pregnancies. vetcare
