I Just recently got a puppy a 4 week old GSD, owner of puppies and mother were moving so i think we got him earlier, well anyway i have also a 14 year old terrier mix. having trouble getting them to get along, well mainly older dog, the puppy i think has *HIM* made out to be his mother, first time they meet my older dog chance was sleeping and puppy tried to suckle. Didn't work out to well chance ran off to another room.
The puppy seems to cry and whine crazy like for him, gets along with neighbors golden retriever as do the older one. The pup is now 8 weeks old, for most of the time I have had a baby gate to keep them apart my older dog seems not to bark or go to attack him only growls a little and turns and goes away. I think maybe some of its the puppy going really crazy to get at him, the puppy only does it to him.
chance the older dog really doesn't get along with many other dogs only few of neighbors he loves to play with everyday in the garden, I want them to get along i don;t wanna give the puppy away, but I can't get rid of the old time to much love for him, had him to long. Chance only seems to make a growl while puppy is cryin and whining for him crazy like, so i have to put chance out for him to calm down a little. Unsure what to do. Thx people great forums.
