I have a 2 year old Maltese and he does the same thing if he has an accident in the house and I don't get to it in time. Its something about the breed, apparently all Maltese's do it, but I haven't figured out why just yet.

My 9 month old Pomeranian does it. The "leave it" command has been helping. It is so hard to spot it before they do-they are so fast!

I had a coonhound that ate all the dog and cat poop that she could find (even the smallest of pieces). She never did outgrow it! It was more of a game with her to see how much poop she could eat before I could get it all picked up out of the yard. We tried every product on the market, and the ONLY thing that worked was to feed her and all the other pets cooked zucchini. Raw works, too, but she liked the cooked much
better.
For the 1st month, I gave it to her about 4 times times a week (1/4 cup per 1 cup of dry food). Then I eventually only had to give it to her twice a week. If the dog gets a soft stool, cut back on the
zucchini.
It must give the poop the worst smell to the dog because as soon as she would put her nose down toward it, she was pulling
away.
So this was a cheap, but more important healthy fix for the problem.

My Yorkie puppy does this. My vet just gave me 3 packets of For-Bid powder (use twice a day for a week) and so far it's working. It makes his poop taste bad to him. (I know! Go figure!) But after the 1st day he picks up the poop but that's as far as he goes.

My one year old Puggle has found that the frozen poop is a wonderful toy and treat to chew. He burrows down in the snow to find what I have not been able to pick up. My only solution seems to be to put on my boots and pick it up right away before it can freeze or get buried by the next snowfall.

My 2 year old Jug eats the cat's poo. He has not grown out of it - it's been at least a year. I clean the litter all the time, yet he still seems to get to it as soon as I turn my back. I have found a product on Smith and Foster's Web site. I will be adding it to the cats food in hopes it ruins the 'great' taste.

My two Maltese do the same thing and they are five years old. They have not outgrown it and I doubt they ever will. I try to clean up after them as much as I can but I have a fenced in yard and sometimes miss where they have gone. I wish the advice was better on how to stop it because it is so gross.
