(Fort Walton Beach, FL)
I have a 7-year-old Papicorgi named Panda. I got her from the Broward County Animal Shelter when she was 5. She was very aggressive and would bite when you tried to pet her. The only thing the shelter knew was that she didn't like children, and that every animal was removed from the home she lived in and the family was banned from ever owning animals in the state of Florida. I let her bite me all she wanted until she knew I wasn't going to hurt her when I touched her. I never stopped. She quit biting. She was still aggressive with my other two little dogs (a Papillon and a Puggell) at the food dish. We started feeding her separately and she started fitting in. The problems began a few months ago when we rescued a 1 year oldTibetan Spaniel/Papillon mix. He's sweet as can be, but bossy if you let him. Now my Papicorgi is using the bathroom on the floor. I have to kennel her and I hate it. How do I get her to stop?
