Jawnie being a pup also might come into play as he is trying to learn the ways of the group and will make a lot of mistakes like going to close when another dog is eating or lying in a older dogs bed ect ect Is Curly the dominate dog of the group ? if so he is dictating or maybe making a play to be the boss of the pack and what better way to show his dominance then on a pup or possible weaker part of the group . Just trying to help you figure this all out is all , I know I would be racking My brain and trying to fix My heart also .
    Curly being around other dogs and no problems is great but it is very different when it is his own at home group or pack also .
    Curly is definitely not the alpha - my oldest Sully tends to lead the the approval of animals in the household. Sully loves the puppy.

    The puppy was avoiding curly since the first biting incident on Friday so on Saturday when our friend came into the yard unexpectedly, because of all the excitement he went after the puppy violently. The puppy was no where around him -he just turned like a switch. Otherwise he is loving and caring for the pup but we can't determine what the trigger is. The little guy is only 35lbs and is no match for our 70lb guy that is all muscle. Maybe when he is older he will be able to hold his own but it's too much to risk and wait. We also can't afford another 5grand in bills.

    We never thought about getting a dog that we would have to rehome but even with me home all day (I work from home) if I don't know what the triggers are I cannot prevent it from happening again. It all makes me terribly sad

    Since you met curly and know what a chill dude he is, I know you completely know how surprised and shocked we were that he wouldn't be welcoming. Maybe it's a puppy thing or maybe is just the dog himself. I will never know.

    @nubonics I am so sorry that things are not working out for you, with the new pup. Poor baby ,what a shame. I know it is so traumatizing when you have a sweet dog, and then they turn and be like Curly did. It shakes your whole world seeing them like that. As my two Bullies sometimes fight over a toy-I have to make them quit-but I know they are not as mean as they can get. I hope you and the pup will heal okay, and it is sad but wonderful if your sister takes Jawnie. Sending prayers for you.

    Nu, I'm so sorry you guys are going through this! Curly, though? Chubby, calm Curly? He was such a huge sweetheart when I met him, just like @rjisaterp said! There were definitely puppies at our play group that day and Curly just chilled out and watched the fun unfold around him. He even tolerated face kisses from Ruckus who was like whoa you're a big guy, let me smell you! Could it be that he is being protective of your older dogs and he takes the sound the puppy makes as threatening? Maybe until things calm down you could rotate Curly and the puppy and not let them see one another? One in he crate in another room at all times?

    Yes, sweet chill laid back Curly has a Mr Hyde in him. I don't think he's being protective over the older dogs. The bostons were actually trying to protect the puppy when this was all happening (and probably me because I got in the middle of it all).

    I am starting to theorize that curly might not know his strength or how to react to excitement and there might be two layers to this whole situation. Whenever he gets excited normally he runs for a toy to chew on. In both incidences there were no toys in sight and only Jawnie. Because Jawnie is easily scared and will Yelp loudly, it turns a switch on curly making his next reaction to stop the noise. As long as he makes the noise curly cannot turn off...

    Needless to say Jawnie is terrified of curly and I don't know if he can unlearn that fear

    For the next few weeks curly is going to be muzzled and we are going to keep them in separate rooms. We will let each dog socialize with our Boston Terriers but not with each other. Then I'm just going to head up to philly and do rehab with Jawnie and my Boston Terriers. I still want Jawnie to be around short face dogs and not fear them.

    Curly is a very sweet guy and I really don't know what has made him turn. In a million years we would have never expected this.

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Just got back from meeting with the ortho surgeon. They recommended surgery as an insurance that things will heal properly but there is no reason for them to think it won't by just being in a splint. So instead of forking over $4500 for the surgery we are going to wait a week to see how things heal. He is in the splint for about 5 weeks and then he will head towards rehab, which I will do with him in Philly away from curly. We are going to try to reintegrate them when he is about 6 months to see if the aggression is still there/see if some one on one training will help with curly. If he is still displaying aggression we are going to rehome Jawnie to my sister

    Oh that face and those ears! Poor baby Jawnie. At the same time I feel bad for Curly because this just doesn't seem in his nature, he must have been in quite the state to have done this.
