I have a slight issue with my dog I am hoping people can offer some advice. Let me start from the beinging tho.
About 5 weeks ago I had two heathly happy dogs a ridge back and a boxer both pure breed well trained dogs unfortantly we took the both dogs walking oneday and the boxer just died she was 7 years old and we thought she had a hart attack It was very sad and we still miss her every day. Tia our Ridgeback who is 4 years old misses her the most and cryed and cryed most nights. Well 3 days ago we decided that it was time to invest in another puppy and we have gone out and brought a red healer who is named Rosie who is 6 weeks old and is just sooo adorable! However Tia does not agree she is scared of her and runs and hides in her bed. She has growled and snarled at her which is very unlike Tia. If only our animals could talk to us!
We have the two seperated and I make sure they spend time together each day. Tia still goes on her daily walks and is feed before Rosie.
Im hoping they'll just get used to one anther. What do you think ?
On thing I am thinking of doing is taking Tia in to get de-sex we had plans to breed from her however we have never found the perfect fellow for her and I am happy to have her de-sex. Rosie will be getting de-sex at soon as she is of the right age.My plan was to have them de-sex together but I am happy to get Tia done earlier if it will help the situation.
Is there anything else I can do to help the situation?
Thanks for any help in advance
