Super aggressive medium sized Blue Heeler
HELP!!!!! My almost 6 month old female Heeler (FeeBee) is very aggressive towards other dogs. Ive had her (a couple oweeks ago) out in a communal, LARGE fenced dog area where she does fair at best if there are 4-5 other dogs. I believe the number of dogs overwhelms her and therefore shes kept her wits otherrwise there probably would have been shear carnage! When faced 1:1 with a dog she lunges, growls, shows teeth and barks. I got her from a super sketchy woman who had several of her siblings along in her car in a Walmart parking lot (just so you can appreciate the sketchiness).
The woman stated she was 8 weeks old.Shes very intelligent but still has accidents in the house. The vet has confirmed age, shes had all vaccinations. Ive had 2 other heelers, not this young but they were the sweetest, smartest dogs!
Ernie is our 2 yr old cat. They play together so nicely but sometimes we do reprimand FeeBee when shes rough but Ernie allows her to grab him by the neck skin and actually lift him up. FeeBee has never injured the cat in all their rough play. She has chased, growled, barked our other cats and that can be very scary but she doesnt "get rough" with the 2 cats (6 in total) who just dont run but dont wanna play. To boot, Im handicapped and have very poor balance and have kept her from other dogs or people thus far but its hairy. ]Oh yeah, shes also people aggressive. I have been able to introduce other dog savvy folks to her and shes somewhat friendly however even that is also becoming an issue. she barks, growls and longes at people. Help!!!
