Aggressive Shibas in Taipei
I have 3 Shiba Inus, all rescues. 1) 5 yrs, Shiro; 2) 8yrs. Kuro, and newest member 3) 1 1/2yrs. Joey. Kuro was only one found in streets. He's the alpha, and the aggressive one. Shiro quickly cowered to his authority and only fought a couple times.
Since we got Joey, Kuro is trying to prove himself. He snaps at Joey, bites him when he runs and plays, guards us at the dinner table when we're eating to prevent Joey from getting close, and is more attached to me and doesn't let me move him when he is on the bed or couch without growling or becoming more aggressive.
Kuro and Joey fight at least once a week, just from Kuro snapping at him and Joey now protects himself.
They are all boys but none have been neutered.
I'm considering neutering Kuro now, but I wonder if I should train him first and handle the aggressiveness before putting him under the knife.
I really appreciate your time and help.
