11 month old female pittbull aggressive toward smaller female in the home
(Jay, Florida USA)
We have 5 dogs two are pitts. Suddenly my 11 month old 50 pound pitt Myah and my 2 year old 10 pound min pin/ Chihuahua mix Lexi started fighting and before they got along great and no problems. Its highly frightening.. it just suddenly started happening and the pitt would attack her.. they are both spayed and no food or toys were involved.
It happens so quick and the pitt looks like she is trying to kill the smaller dog and then the lexi wont back down either and keeps going at her as well. The pitt gets Lexi and thrashes her during the fight .. no blood or otherwise terrible injuries but so far we jump in and stop it before it gets any worse. Myah the pitt is otherwise sweet as can be. So after 4 fights and terrifying moments we decided to give Myah to a friend.. im really sad about this because we love her but i cant risk her killing Lexi. I think its a dominance issue. Tonight was the last straw when we were watching them all play and having fun, lexi did have a stick this time and they were chasing her around the yard dropping and picking it back up we watched super close and suddenly Myah attacked Lexi had her by the back of her neck and was thrashing her .. all the kids were with me and we were terrified watching this happen i was able to finally grab lexi up and move her away from
Myah.. so unexpected and so disappointing.
