I have a jack-a-bee, so he has little floppy ears. I was playing around with them and I got some dog hair clips I had from my previous dog. I know I should be careful with stuff like that, but the clip doesn't have much pressure and it slips off pretty easy. Anyway, it slipped and I think it hit a nerve, he started freaking out and running all over the house. He's really scared of me right now. I've never seen him like this, and he's extremely submissive. I came close to him trying to see if he was okay, and he rolled on his back and started peeing. I feel really bad. I had to put him outside so he could have some space. He's shaking really bad. Is it always going to be like this? I've never had an experience like this with my previous dogs. I don't want him to fear me. A jack a bee is a mixture of a jack russell and a beagle. He looks mostly like a beagle, though. That's why he has really floppy ears. That's not me. I'm a girl. And it's 320 am, I can't take him to the vet.

1. I'm not gonna address the physical injury, you'll have to make an assessment of that when you can, and see how bad it is, and go from their. I just wanted to say that accidents happen. You need to forgive yourself. I know that is hard. But if you can not do it for you, you need to do it for your dog. Dogs are very sensitive about reading our emotions. But they can not always tell what is causing the emotion. Your dog knows you are upset, but he will not understand that you are upset with yourself. He will assume that you are upset with him. So, you need to let go of the bad emotions, and put on a happy face, for him. Dogs are also amazing when it comes to their capacity to forgive. I have see abused dogs, with every right in the world to hate and despises their owner/abuser. But you know what that dog wants more then anything else in the world? To lick, and be petted by the very hand that hits them. So, give the dog a bit of time, then go forth and let the dog know you are alright, everything is gonna be okay. That dog could be bleeding to death, but it will be only worrying about you, more then itself. Best of luck, hope the physical injuries are small.

4. He's probably fine. If anything, he most likely though you were 'biting' him and is being a puss about it. (What is a jack-a-bee by the way?)- not being rude

6. To those who were asking, it's a Jack Russell/Beagle Mix. If it's bleeding or anything, take some tissues and clean it up a bit. If it's really bad, just take him to the vet. If it's not bleeding, it probably just hurt and he's just scared. He'll cool off and come back to you. He may just have sensitive ears. Try to pick him up and comfort him, make him feel okay, and that you weren't there to harm him. Maybe give him a treat, or cook him up some egg if you really wanna treat him. Egg is good for dogs; good for their coat too. Just let him cool down and comfort him. Hold him and pet him. Just make him feel better as if he were a small child who had just gotten hurt.

8. Hi, If you are unable to take your dog to see the vet, then you or someone on your behalf needs to telephone the vet for advice. This will not cost anything. Please do this just to be on the safe side. Good luck.

12. well if he's that fearful, i'd try to show him he can trust you again-earn back his trust. just be around him and talk to him softly and show him that you won't hurt him, be gentle and relaxed and patient and he should be ok with you again soon, good luck ;)
