A yorkiepoo, a 9 week old GSD, and 9 month old GSD

by Macie C.
(Concord, North Carolina, USA)

Hello, back in 2010 my mother got a little Yorkie Poo as a puppy, about a year and a half later I got a hound dog that she was fine with. Then fast forward to 2 years ago and I bring in a cat, they got along fine after some time.

Well now my mother has adopted a 9 week old German Shepherd Malinois mix into the house, the Yorkie does not like her, she snaps and growls at her. And last night my mother just got a 9 month old GSD, who is good with small dogs and cats, the Yorkie will bark and growl at both of them.

NOW the 9 month GSD is starting to growl a little bit at the Yorkie.
While my sister was holding the Yorkie Poo the GSD kinda of growled at the Yorkie Poo, just cause she was being held, it wasn't so much of a aggressive growl, I would say a growl that is annoyed.
The main issue is we need them all to get along. And we just don't know how. Please help.

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.

All the best,
