The part that's weird is they're broken on top and bottom. All of them between the canines

Everybody I've talked to says the only way just those teeth could be broke is by being hit by a bat or something similar
a bat is to big of a diameter you are look at someth mouch smaller than a bat ie a pipe but it is possible from other trauma as well a bumper of a car etc.

If I had to guess I would say a golf club. Mostly from her reaction when she sees them. She can handle being around bats and boards, though very cautious. If she sees a golf club she will run and hide. I was told by the people I got her from that she was abused. She was very skinny and stinky when we got her. She has scars under her eyes where there was probably eye gunk that stayed for along time and there's no hair there. It makes her look even more sad. She also has a yeast infection on her chest I'm having trouble clearing up.

Runiong away from something is not conclusive or indicative of what may or may not caused such injuries as articles the doig has not seen before it is going to be scared of even more so when the personality trait tends toward fearfulness.
Personally what you describe I would call neglect rather than abuse but that does not make it any less traumatic for the dog

Also it does not make any difference in terms of helping the dog wheter the cause of the fear is abuse, neglect or lack of socialization. provided that excuse are not made for the behavior or it becomes resined to the unfixable catagory. hardly any such behavior that becomes entrenched by adulthood is truely cureable but it can be mand substaintialy less of a problem for both human and the dog a like. it takes a lot of work and it is alway on going when you stop the dog will start to regress

[wheter the cause of the fear is abuse, neglect or lack of socialization.]

I think it has been all three. I don't know her story, though, I just know what I've been told.

And I would bet you a box of dog biscuits that what they told you wasn't true, either.

The people I got her from only know what the people they get her from told them. So, I'm sure the info I got was not accurate. As I said before, I can only guess at what she's been through.

I do have a question for you mikey. How can I get her over her fear of water? I've gotten her to where I can give her a bath but I can't turn the shower on to rinse her. I know she may never get used to the sound of the shower but I would like to keep her outside when the kids are playing in the water or I'm watering the garden. Any ideas? Games? I've tried treats, and tossing rawhide in the wading pool.
