Can you tell me what sex each dog is?
Does one seem to be the aggressor?
They are only 10 weeks old, correct?
Do you know what they are mixed with?
Is there food around when the fights start?
Do you notice any trigger to the fights?
Hi Jane - thanks for responding.
Both pups are female.
It is difficult to tell which is the aggressor.
Yes, 10 weeks old.
We do not know the mix. These pups came from a stray pregnant dog that showed up at my step dad's a month before delivery. Delivery was a shock - we did not know that the mother was pregnant due to the mal-nutritioned state she arrived in. These were her only two pups and delivery was not complicated and the mother was a very good mother.
Food was not around in the one episode we witnessed when we brought them home from the kennel.
The trigger seemed to be each other.
Now that we have them separated, they are both sleeping very heavily. We will not allow them to have interaction with each other until they seem more normal in their behavior as before they were boarded.
They do not seem to be aggressive to any thing else.
