|Neehi has always been the dog that defused aggressive attacks and fights. If another dog starts a fight with him he turns his head away and stays calm, and the other dog stops the attack. He has also never started a fight in the 2 years I have had him.
We have had a Pitbull staying with us for 5 months now, and will be here for at least another 40 days. Neehi and him are best friends who play and sleep together. But in the last week I have seen Neehi go after Bogey (the pittie) 3 times now. I just do not understand why?!
Bogey sleeps downstairs with the girls who rent our basement. One of the times Neehi went after Bogey, one of the girls was feeding my 2 dogs and Bogey some training treats. The 3 dogs kept getting closer to her, and closer together. I told the girl that she needed to get them to back up and sit because Lola (my food-aggressive-dog-with-other-dogs-dog)and Bogey were getting to close to each other. Sure enough, Lola snapped at Bogey with some vocal outrage, although she didn't touch him. Neehi then pounced on Bogey and was biting him. We split it up, and made all dogs move away from each other. After a few minutes we let them move around and Neehi went straight for Bogey, circled him and jumped on him again.
The other 2 times, I don't get at all. Lola and Neehi were playing and Bogey was wondering around. Neehi stopped his play with Lola, looked at Bogey, circled him and pounced.
Bogey may be a pittie, but is a big baby He just cries and tries to get away when this happens.
When Bogey first came I was worried how Lola would treat him, and she bossed him around a lot at first, but never did more the "correcting" fights, never hurting him. Lola rarely corrects him now, except with a snarl, growl or snap, and even then this is not often. But now Neehi is acting like I have never seen him act and I do not like it.
Can anyone tell me what is happening to my boy?
