we have a 2 year old boxer(male) that is really stand-offish to our new 10wk old puppy(female).
i know it might be hard for him as he did have all our attention and was spoilled, but we are still giving him just as much love.
they have been sleeping inside on seperate beds but if she tries to snuggle into him he gets up and walks away and during the day he hides down the side of the house. they might play for about 4-5 minutes then thats it.
she does nip his chest, jowls and ears to the point he has scabs on his chest.
i think this might be why he hides? just to get a break.
we have only had the puppy for 3 weeks now, is this a normal behaviour.
we were hoping they would share a kennel, but it doesn't look like they ever will.
anyone got some advise or tips
