    I comprehend that's what you would prefer, but not necessarily what you are going to get.

    If you don't want ppl to comment on the fact that your brother found this dog in his neighbourhood and is looking at giving said dog to you, then don't throw it out there in print for everyone to read.
    It is a public forum - you state it, others will relate to it.

    Alright fine. I'm tired of this forum only looking into the things I'm doing wrong instead of giving me answers on what I need known. I appreciate those who did give me tips, though, so thanks to them.

    I thought this would be a friendly forum with help when I needed it, but I guess I'm wrong. No offense, but this forum seriously needs to check itself.

    It was nice for awhile, but almost every thread I've posted has ended up with an argument against me or with people in the thread. Answers are not worth it. I'll look elsewhere, or make do with what knowledge I have and hope it's enough.

    Thanks for your time guys. I'm not going to be sticking around any longer, though, so good bye.

    lol, its funny how when people want opinions and they are not always what they wanted it ends in a tanty....

    IF you have tried to find the owners and can't and have decided to keep the dog, then desexing and you can only try to keep them together, either they will get on or won't... Not a hell of a lot you can do to make them get on because at the end of the day you can never trust them together....

    IF you only just got hold of this dog then please have a go at finding its owners before you DESEX it lol, they may be slightly pissed if its a prize dog of some sort (i have no idea if its a crossbred or not lol so just a general comment)...

    As its very rare that anyone just leaves without looking to see if they receive an answer to their last post I just have to say that I leave the extra answers because I don't have it in me to overlook what I clearly see as an error, or can clearly see may put other dogs in danger.

    I could have gone into a lot more detail, but I didn't, I just posted the obvious about the hopeful return of a dog to it's original owner and the dangers, not just health wise, but the psychological development of the soon to be puppies should these the two males in the house not get on.

    Puppies start taking in their surroundings from 3 weeks of age, from 3 - 16 weeks is the most crucial period of their life and can make or break them. Witnessing the body language of two adult males that are not happy is not good early socialisation & is not easily fixed.

    I cannot overlook what I see as errors in judgement and believe I have posted them in a polite manner, all you need to do is politely decline that information.

    There have been many posts here where people have found animals and wanted to keep them but having it pointed out to them that the animals may be microchipped and it may have an owner frantically looking for it has not brought a negative response, but a realisation of their obligation.

    Addressing male to male aggression takes experience, space and money. Raising puppies correctly takes experience, space and money. Things you have posted in the past that you do not have excess of.

    Animals, particularly dogs, are my passion, and unfortunately I am unable to post one dimensional answers where they are concerned.

    That's a shame. Although I expect you are mature enough to have learnt that we don't always reecive the answers we might want.

    There are a swag of experienced ppl on here who could give you excellent advice about dog to dog aggression, how to deal with it, how to eradicate it.
    But what you are failing to comprehend is that giving us the reasons of why this situation may occur in the first place has just, for one, ensured I would not give advice or help under the circumstances.

    I don't know how things work in your country having never lived there, but here in Australia if a dog is found, we certainly recommend a person does everything they reasonably can to locate the owner. If you were to do what I perceive as the morally, ethically and legally correct thing, you would not be in the situation of asking how to deal with dog to dog aggression in the first place.
    Hence the reason why your comments have instigated the responses you have received.

    Should you choose to stick around, please start to consider that.

    Sorry but whether you asked or not, it is LAW that that dog must go to the pound!!!! Can you imagine your own despair if it was your dog who had escaped and you couldn't find it because it was in someone else's backyard. You can always tell the pound you will claim it if it is not reclaimed by it's owner.

    Anyway, to answer your question, we won't rehome either sex to a same sex household unless there is a 10 yr age difference because of potential aggression issues. The issue may not be obvious for weeks, months or even years, but if it does happen the result is OFTEN death. Hope this helps
