PostSubject: Why is she obsessed with dirty underwear?   Thu Dec 12, 2013 1:07 pm

My sister adopted a now eight months old GSD/Rott mix from the shelter early November and for whatever reason she keeps eating women's underwear out of the dirty hamper. Only women's underwear, not the guys'. lol! I think it's really funny, but also a really expensive thing to decide to snack on. We weren't sure who was doing it but I caught her today! And torn up underwear hadn't started showing up until after my sister got her, so it was kind of assumed. What about dirty underwear is so attractive to her? Nunya and Snoopy look at her like she's crazy and go about their day.

On another note, I think I figured out why she was surrendered. She counter surfs like a pro and when you start running she jumps up and play bites your arms. She was 80 lbs when Jori adopted her last month, I don't even know how much she weighs now. She was living in a house with three kids and the oldest one was four, not a good mix!

She's a big cutie though, super cuddle and a big soft baby, just was never taught when she needs to be gentle. When she doesn't understand what something is she pounces on it, be it hair brush, bag, laundry basket, or cat...

Think about that question...dirty underwear and a dog. Hmm, dirty underwear smells like something doesn't it? That's probably why she likes it and you'll need to put it in a place where she can't get to it.

She's adorable though!!!

Good thing for dental bones right!!!

I wasn't sure if there was a particular smell, or just the pheromones, or what? Being it's ONLY the women's underwear, not the stinky men! Come to think of it, our last GSD did the exact thing and she was also female.. Hmm... dogs are weird haha

Luckily I keep all my dirty clothes in my room but I can't convince everybody else to change their ways, even at the expense of their underwear!

And she is SO cute! Even cuter now cause her left ear flopped over! It's so adorable! My sister is so mad though haha

Yuki was obsessed with laundry as a pup, I just got one of those mesh hampers with the zipper at the top so they couldnt get to my dirty laundry.

Yeah I would tell her to buy a mesh hamper or like one with a top on it and get some kind of a baby proof thing to keep the topped closed. I sadly had to practically baby proof the entire house the other day cause Siku knows how to get into cupboards and the trash. Its been a lifesaver, although its annoying, it gets the job done! So I would suggest that if she is really all about them and nothing will keep her out.

We've started crating her when we aren't home/sleeping due to the increase of underwear assault, but as long as someone is awake and vaguely keeping track of her she's alright. I caught her cause I'd gone to the bathroom and I walked out and she'd buried her head up to her shoulders in the laundry basket so I shouted to scare her. She had a classic "oh crap" look on her face and then walked away like she hadn't done anything haha Sneaky sneaky  Laughing

Thankfully Mishka doesn't touch my underwear, but man if he gets a sock (clean or dirty) it's most likely a goner. :/


I'm sure just the smell of the underwear is what tempts her. Our lady parts have a distinct smell regardless how clean we are and it's VERY attractive to dogs. Mishka sticks his nose in pretty much every woman he meets crotch. Lol.

I had a dog that would eat all my underwear, clean or dirty. Either her nose was exceptional, or our washing machine was crap. She even figured out how to open my dresser drawer and would just help herself. Luckily she never ate any. My childhoods friend's doberman died while in surgery to remove underwear that had obstructed her.

Bahaha! What a gentleman! I guess that's true though. Snoopy only ever ate my now ex-boyfriends dirty socks, no one else's! I think he felt threatened Razz Nunya was a shoe destroyer as a puppy but he grew out of that, thank goodness.

That's so sad, Samantha D: Thankfully Porscha only eats the crotch out of them. Less likely to get stuck than the whole thing.

Orion does exactly the same thing as Mishka lol I just thought he was a creep but I'm so glad to hear it's not just him! Kind of makes him embarrassing to take places though...  Razz 
Oh and he's definitely a sock fiend, dunno why but he adores them. I work for the marketing department of a sock manufacturer so I took him to work not long ago, it blew his mind.

Man I was hoping to be the first to respond and just say "because they smell wonderful."

Oh well.

Beautiful Dog!
