Someone please help me. My husband and I are from Alaska and just adopted a 2 year old sharpei/terrier mix from a high kill shelter in California. We have a very sweet and submissive 2 year old Golden Retriever at home that needed a companion while we are at work (about 3 hrs at home at a time). We really wanted to get a shelter dog, so we adopted Hannah. Hannah had a shelter buddy (another sharpei mix) that she seemed to get along with wonderfully, so we thought she would be a great companion for our dog. We brought Hannah home yesterday and all hell broke loose. It seems Hannah is EXTREMELY attached to me. She won't let our retriever ANY where near me and tries to bite her and will stare at her whenever she's in sight. She doesn't care when our retriever is near my husband, but I'm a different story. Not knowing her history, I can't imagine what this dog has been through. My husband and I want to start trying to have a baby next year, but I can't imagine bringing a baby into this household with a dog that is so attached to me. What do we do? She is SUCH a sweet dog otherwise. She loves people and is very affectionate. She just hates our other dog. And our other dog is scared to death. She just hides under the table the entire time. I feel horrible because I just wanted her to have a friend, but it seems we did the exact opposite. I don't want to give Hannah up. She has probably had such a horrible life as it is, I don't want her to go from owner to owner. Does ANYONE have ANY advice?! I'm at a loss... Will it get better just letting the dogs work it out? I don't want my retriever to suffer for our mistake. Thanks!
