|I'll try and keep this short .
We own an american bulldog who is now 3 years old. He just a big goofball of a dog but he has his, what we call, 'scaqry dog' moments. We call it scary dog because it looks like he is 'attacking' another dog but he has never done actual damage... its like he is just putting up a front. He is strong enough that if he wanted to of course he could do damage. It is definately not a play gesture or something that could even come close to aggressive play. We started fostering to see if we could work on it. The first dog he did his 'scary dog' thing to backed off and after a few days they actually became good friends. Next was a male, which I should have known better. They fought and zack lost part of his ear in one of their scraps . Had to find another place for that foster. We said no more males and have tried another female. She is older than him but very docile. She is a lab... very sweet. Zack, of course did scary dog when she first came in. They seemed to be co-habitating nicely when today there was another scary dog incident. The foster does nothing but cower and slink away. I feel horrible because it seems like Zack is just being a big bully! We have tried on leash, off leash, muzzle, no muzzle... I am out of ideas and I cannot for the life of me connect with him to figure out why he is doing this. Help
