Aggressive Chihuahua to 10 week old Doberman
I have two 1 year old neutered male Chihuahua's which I got at 6 weeks of age. They are not brothers but we wanted two so they could play together. Two weeks ago we got an 8 week old male doberman because we lost both our older "big" dogs over xmas. The puppy is of course already bigger than the Chihuahua's. We took good care when introducing the Dobie, one on one to the Chihuahuas but neither of them are really taking to the Dobie.
One of them is actually now starting to LOOK for a fight. The Dobie will be just sitting outside minding his own business and the smallest of the Chihuahuas will go over to him, posture up, the dobie will try to ignore and even look away, but as soon as he does look at the Chi... the fight is on!!!!
I have been trying to give the little dogs the same attention as before the dobie and praising them when they ignore the dobie..but its getting worse.
