Aggressive Rat Terrier
We adopted a 3 year old male (intact) Rat Terrier we had been told the dog had been mistreated by a child had bit the child and the family did not want him. At first he was fine with me and my wife and only exhibited fear biting behavior when he felt threatened. We worked with him and he was getting better We went on vacation for 5 days and upon returning the dog was fine. Now the dog sits with my wife in her chair and growls and charges me when I walk by. This behavior also happens when the dog is up on our bed. If my wife is not home the dog is fine with me and very affectionate. I am at the point that I am going to return the dog to the shelter but fear it will be euthanized.
