    Yeap. They love to mark their territory; keep a watchful eye over him, he will calm down. It will take a little time but he will calm down. He is beautiful, enjoy the time off. Good luck!!

    Ok so this is hard for me to admit because I love brutus so much but I really think the trainer must concentrate on him because he is a gigantic brat. He is really acting out today not listening to me and being a nudge to my other doggies. I think he may need an attitude adjustment.

    Rosalie,
    Sorry you are having difficulty getting the dogs together. I think it will be okay-just need more time. Brutus' crown is "out of joint"-maybe he was "the king" of the house, and is worried about his position!

    Oh that is for sure. He is being naughty today. I am really trying to assure him is still my baby. I know we can work it out, it is just going to be a long road. But anything worth having is worth the work right?? Just remind me I said that every now and than.

    Rosalie, I know your pain. When Punkin joined our small family, we had a heck of a time trying to convince Stiggy to stop moping and that he's still loved. We thought it was going to be Punkin who needed to be watched since he wasn't socialized much, and Stiggy went to daycare at least once a week since he was a 5 months old, but we were so wrong ... we had to watch what Stiggy like a hawk because he would pick on poor Punks! It stressed out my bf and I too because we really wanted them to get along and we were rookies on the whole introducing another to the pack. After a couple of weeks though, it got better considerably. And eventually, maybe after a month or maybe two, we trusted them alone together when no one was home. Now they both know each others' quirks and personalities and work together sometimes to trick us into getting their way! lol.

    I say wait for another week and see how they do. They're all getting to know each still. We tried to make them work with each other by playing tug, and walking together and side by side as often as we could. Then one day you'll realize that they're playing instead of fighting.

    I must add that they were more than a few times when we were thinking of giving Punks to rescue (he came from a friend's friend), seeing Stiggy looked as if he was in such turmoil. (Makes me feel guilty thinking about those moments since Punkin's such an angel.) And then one day we just accepted and realized that he's already part of the family and we're never giving him up.

    Well I am happy to report that last night Brutus took his bone and pushed it through the gate and Frankie took it licked it and then pushed it back!! Now when Brutus goes to the gate his tail is wagging. I am not ready to put them together because I want to wreck any progress. I am going to continue to walk them together but I am glad we were not quick to give him up because he is such a sweetie and I think they really do have a chance to love each other. Thank you to everyone for telling me it was too soon. I think we completely panicked. You guys are the best. My husband Gary is even asking me know "what do your EBN friends say about..."

    That is a good sign. Sounds like it may work out--just give Brutus time, and he will come around! Happy!

    awesome.... baby steps. Roslie, keep in mind tomorrow will be a LOT of excitement, noise and stimulation.... it may cause issues so be aware and watch for any unwanted behavior from either of them --- together or not.

    Woohoo! That's certainly a progress. Go with your gut in what you think would be appropriate to do next, you and your hubby will master this trying time.

    The woman that runs the rescue told me to keep them in their crates for the day and to give them benedryl to help them stay calm.
