Her name is Gracie. She's a 5 year old Mini Aussie. Great with people/kids. Not good with another alpha. The wife and I feel like complete failures as dog owners. We have three dogs. Jackie, she's a 11 year old Shelitie. Molly, 10 year old Minni Aussie and Gracie. My avatar left to right; Molly, Jackie, Gracie. When we brought Gracie home, she and Molly bonded great. Two peas in a pod. The problems started when Gracie decided she was going to be the alpha. For whatever reason, Molly decided to let her even thou Molly is much bigger dog. 15 pounds, 4 inches with much bigger teeth. Gracie has been a bad alpha. Overbearing and aggressive. Molly put up with it for years. Last year things started to change. Molly started to take issue with it. Fights were rair but very violent. Aussies being almost indestructible almost no injuries were happening. I'd brake them up and they would make up right away. Back to peas in a pod. This month things changed for the worse. Molly has decided to regain alpha. Fights have gotten far worse. Last week they went at it and after I separated then both dogs continued to try to get back into it for some time. Then Monday night the final straw. Gracie approached Molly from behind. I stepped in and pushed her away with my foot. Molly heard it and went on the attack. The two of them were locked onto each other and I had them pinned to the ground. It took every thing I had to get them apart. Gracie ended up with a gash in her leg to the bone. She spent the night in the E.R. and has been in the kennel with a cone sence then. We know they must be separated. But it's (almost) like asking a parent to choose a kid. Gracie is younger so she can have a better chance of getting adopted. We really don't want to just give her to some shelter or rescue place. They have a rule about not letting you know where the dog ended up. We can't abide by this. When we brought Gracie home, we took on the moral obligation to take care of her for the rest of her life. We can't just let that go because it's not working out. So here's what we are looking for: 1. No other dogs or only small passive ones. She doesn't ever bother Jackie. Plays with her very gently. 2. Fenced yard. Gracie tends to get selective hearing and can wonder in the open. 3. Cats are a no go. She has been trained to keep them from the yard. 4. No taking her to the dog park and letting her go. She will challenge all the other dogs. We stopped taking them there becouse of her behavior. 5. Kids are a plus. She's really good with them and very submissive. note. She will bare her teeth when greeting. This is a sign of submission. 6. Walks great on a leash. But some backyard fetch will do. Likes to lick. Not a bad chewer. Will recycle poo. 7. No chewie things, rawhide,greenies or alike. She will just try to swallow them whole. No table scraps from plates.We do add some leftovers to their kibbles. (cleaned meat, rice, vegetables) she gets 1/2 cup of kibbles, twice a day. I'll try to post some pics this afternoon. Any questions, send me a message.
