    Default A few questions

    I'll start with Brooke, just this week since getting Frankie I noticed she is licking at her front paws. She is eating her same food, and the most of his food she could have gotten would be like 5 little kibble pieces before we pulled her away. I checked her pads and can't see anything on the front ones, but one of her back feet, in between her toes looks irritated. Also this morning one of her face wrinkles is red, they were playing when I noticed and I thought she got cut and was bleeding, but when I looked closer, her wrinkle is just moist and pink with red outside, looks like maybe yeast, since I've seen it described that way on here. She has NEVER had yeast issues before. Can these issues be caused by the stress of the new addition? Or the few pieces of Iams food she got? Or maybe just increased wetness from them licking and eating each other all the time?

    Next is Frankie, just after I noticed Brooke's wrinkle, I noticed a drop of blood on her lower back and a drop on the floor. I checked Brooke all over and found nothing, so I began checking Frankie next. First I checked his ear (he has a cut from his previous home in one of his ears that has been reopened before while they were playing) but it was scabbed and didn't look like it had been bleeding recently. So I flipped him over and checked his belly, never did find a bleeding spot, but did notice that he had some discharge coming from his penis. Brooke is a girl and my old male dog was fixed before we got him so idk if this is a normal thing for an intact male or a possible infection. Any clue? We're going to try to get him in to a vet this week for at least a check up and an update of his vaccines (since his history is shaky) even if we can't get a neuter appointment but just wondering if it's something I should be worried about.

    Frankie --not sure, keep us posted after the vet visit. Brooklyn could be stressed from the change in routine.... did you introduce them outside of the home before bringing Frankie to the house?

    @2BullyMama Yes we did introduce them outside first. And they do get along great for it not even being a week yet, but she only will act like her old self when he isn't around. Like if Frankie is in time out or something then she'll come curl up on my lap and be her lovey self. But as long as he is out with her ALL of her attention is on him and she will not come lay with me or anything. Not sure what to do, or if it may improve more in time...

    Sounds like it could be that they need to get the pack order set.... watch his body language especially shoulders and eyes, ears help too, but I read that his are too perky and do not change much. Banks' tell-all is her shoulders - they tighten up and her chin/neck go forward, we refer to it as her 'getting her bitch on'.

    Yeah I think they are still getting the pack order set. Brooke is definitely the more dominant one and she tries to prove it but she is just so much smaller than him. I hope things will calm a little once he's fixed. The humping REALLY pi**es her off.

    They will settle down after a while, they will play and as @2BullyMama said they will find their packing order. Sounds like you are giving them a time out every once in awhile which is good. The red faces is probably coming from them playing together, especially if they play rough. Just have to clean their faces more to see if it helps. A few pieces of the old food would not matter. The blood could have come from under his chin, did you check under there? Sometimes if Buddy and BeBe play hard one of them will get a little spot under their chin that will bleed a little. We will stop them if they get too rough.

    @Davidh Yes I have been giving them time outs, at first they literally NEVER rested, I was afraid what would happen if they just continuously went at it with no rest. And after eating they ALWAYS get a break since they play so rough and crazy and I don't want bloat. But I'm trying not to do it too much since it just gives them more energy to be crazy all over again and I don't want it to be like at his old home when he was always locked up.
    I did check under everywhere, hence how I noticed the discharge, speaking of that does your intact male ever have anything like this or do you think its an infection? The blood must have been from his ear and it just re-scabbed before I noticed or something.

    @Davidh It was kinda yellowish white and thick. Not a lot of it, just a little on the tip.

    @Sarah, this is normal, usually a male dog will clean this off, but as we know our poor bullies have a hard time doing that. haha

    @Davidh Oh good, I was not sure at all. I tried to google it but some said it was ejaculation and others said infection and I had NO CLUE which to believe. lol

    Most all male dogs have that discharge, but intact males have more. The play gets a little intense here sometimes, but nobody ever bleeds or gets really carried away. It's all in fun and lots of growling. They use their soft mouthing, looks worse than it is. And yes the faces get red from this sometimes. Flushing.
