Our 14-year-old wirehaired fox terrier has recently sired pups (for the first time in his life!) and his three-month old daughter has come to live with us. They get on excellently together, even share a plate without fighting - the only problem being that he has fixed his nose to her rear with the equivalent of sure-fix glue! She bats him round the face if he gets too familiar, and he goes away for five seconds, but then returns. No harm is done and until she comes on to heat, when we'll obviously have to separate them by some miles!, there won't be a serious problem - but it's just a bit irritating for her. We don't want either de-sexed if we can avoid it; foxies are rare in Australia and a breeder is eager to have his services again (while his potency lasts!), and we'd like to let her have a couple of sets of pups. My guess is that it's an insoluble problem, and that there's no possibility of deterring him from the behaviour; but if anyone's had experience of a dog and bitch in the same house, it'd be great to hear! Best wishes from Sydney, Derek.
