AGGRESSIVE DOXIE/BEAGLE MALE AGED THREE
My Doxie is three years old. I got him from a friend who had him a year but couldn't afford to keep him. It is only in the psst six months or so that will look calm and as if everything is ok. Then, sometimes if I pet him all of a sudden he snaps and reaches back to try and bite me. It isn't that I pet any particular spot, just anywhere. He also snaps if we are sitting together. H will get a vacant type of look as he looks out the window and if I don't catch that look and try to pet him or love him he snaps and bites back. Knock on wood, he hasn't bitten me badly in a couple of months but I feel anxious and afraid to pet him because I don't want him to really bite me badly, Please help, I have no idea what to do.
