Aggressive Shih tzu Puppy
Shawna is only 9 weeks old,but was sold to me at age 6 weeks,so she missed out on what the mother would have corrected and the play time with siblings.She plays with 3 Adult Male Yorkie's until they will not tolerate her rough play any longer.I talk sweet to her,but also correct her with No,Stop that and placing her back in her play pen when she's bad.I play with tug toys with her and leave her alone to entertain herself too.Last week I bought a male 9 week old Yorkie that does not rough play,he'll sit in my lap and let me love him..Shawna will sit in my lap until she will not stop biting me while I rub her..she throws her head in the air and "howls like a child would back talk the parent",at first it was funny to see her do this until,yesterday she showed aggressive behavior while in my lap,viciously attacking my hand,I gave her a Love pat on the behind "No,Shawna",she came at my face bearing teeth..I pushed her away and attempted to get a hold of her so that I could put her down,and she got worse..so,I got her by the scruff of the neck,she continued having a fit as I set her on the floor,and immediatly went straight to the Male puppy and grabbed him by the neck slinging him around with a growl that was not play! She was attacking us both! I am concerned at this age,how she will be as an adult and will be larger than the yorkie's! She is young enough to rehome,but I Love her and want her to live with us! I know that I should not pop her on the rear,that it could throw her hips out of alignment etc...Today a lady friend is going to take her for a few days to be with her adult female.So that maybe she can fullfill the motherly correction's that Shawna missed out on! I am considering taking training classes with her!
