I’ll skip the part about why I thought this was a good idea. The upshot is that I currently have two dogs in my apartment who aren’t getting along. :smack: :smack: First dog is Zoe, a ~1 yr old 52-lb female Collie mix. The other, tentatively named Simon, is a male Jack-Russel mix, 18lb. Vet says he’s probably about 2 years old.
They’ve stopped barking at each other, but they are chasing each other around, each trying to assert dominance. Simon would occasionally succeed and Zoe rolls on her back. Simon then gets on top of Zoe and starts humping. :eek: No actual penetration, just the motion. Zoe promptly decides she doesn’t like it, and chases Simon off. This went on for a while until I barricaded Simon into the kitchen.
If they can’t work it out I’ll have to return Simon to the shelter (or more likely, a better organization). He’d still be better off than if I hadn’t gotten him, so perhaps I shouldn’t feel too horrible. But if there’s anything I can do to help them get along, I’m all ears.
