by Amy Ashmore

My jack Russell is a boy, fixed and i have never had problems w him. Recently he has started growling at me and my girl jack Russell and my boyfriend.
I noticed by his pee pee, he has 4 black spots and when i go to touch them it's as if he is hurting. Does anyone have any advise of what to do. Hes never had health problems etc.
Thank you Amy

Jack Russell suddenly growling
by: Robyn

So sorry your pup is going through this. Any sudden change in behavior warrants a trip to the vet. Because your Jack can't speak, the growling is a way of communicating.
The black spots are concerning because it sounds like you are saying that it hurts him. The spots could really be anything. A vet would need to check them out to see what is wrong.
I'm a bit concerned because your Jack has never acted like this before. I really think a vet visit is in order.
