So, we just got a new puppy, a 9 week old Beagle girl (Willow). Our other dog is an 8 year old Dauchshund (Dodger). We just put down our sixteen year old Bishon a week ago, and got the new puppy Tuseday. We realize this a lot of change for our Dauchshund. The puppy is doing good. A very well behaved puppy, but still a puppy. Dodger just doesn't want to accept her. Yoday he snapped at her with very little provocation. He often growls and bares his teeth when she walks by. It wasn't like this yesterday, or even earlier this morning. Is this normal behavior, or something to worry about? Dodger is not starved for attention, he is getting more now even with the puppy. He is a great dog, the best in the world. I guess I am really asking is this: should we worry? Should we take steps to introduce them, or just let him go at his own pace. Our dog we just put down didn't act this way with Dodger, the first dog he ever lived with. He just completely ignored him for a couple weeks, but never lashed out. I would love to hear from people who have experienced the same problem, or type of problem. Thanks in advance for any comments.
