My daughter's dog a 9 year old Chihuahua has been staying with me. Now he won't go home to my daughter's. He growls and snarls at her when she comes near. He won't even let her talk to him or come near him, as if he's afraid she's going to take him away! I don't know what to do about this except to keep him here, and she gets very hurt because she has had him for 9 years. One significant thing that happened is that she had a Dalmatian older than him that was in her home when she got the Chihuahua. He was very much attached to the Dalmatian. She died about two years ago. Over the last year or more, she has brought the Chihuahua over here to my house to stay often because she was often gone because of work and he was lonely being home alone so often. I have a dog (younger than him) and he seems to like being around her, but he would leave and go home whenever my daughter came to pick him up. However, he started this growling about 8 or 9 months ago and now refuses to acknowledge her. Is there any way to get him to be pleasant to her again? It seems to be out of the question for him to go back to stay. I don't mind him staying here. In fact, I would probably miss him at this point, but I don't like seeing her unhappy about it.
