Default I'm so choked at Mikey

We found this adorable four-month-old female puppy. She is so sweet. Just like Maverick as a puppy. Very bright looking. Big paws. Let me pick her up and roll her aroung and doesn't puppy chew even. (not yet anyway) So, we tell the girls at the shelter that to put a notice up 'adoption pending' and that we will be back to introduce our other dogs.

We go home, get Maverick and Mikey and bring them to the shelter. Mikey goes NUTS trying to attack her. Lips curled back. Snarling. Growling. Lunging. We let them meet on leash and through a fence and both time the dumb dog went nuts. Grrr. She is such a great puppy. So, we can't get her. They wouldn't have let us adopt her even if we had wanted to after that.

I'm so sad.

I wonder what Mikey's problem was? He's not usually such a jealous brat.

I don't know. Steve thinks it might be because the dog was smaller or because Steve was initially holding her. I really don't know. I'm quite disappointed though.

They only let you introduce them once??? Seems if you could take him a couple times, heck...he may have just had an off moment. She's sooooo adorable. At least if you really can't get her, she'll be adopted quickly with her sweet nature.

Aw, what a cute dog! I'm sorry for the reaction Maverick had towards her... his actions may have been justified though... .

It was Mikey not Maverick.

I'm sure they'd let us bring Mikey back if we wanted but after the whole Mikey biting Teddy fiasco I don't really want animal control to see him like that.

Oh, sorry. Your dog Maverick seems to be pretty famous so... I guess that name popped out.

Anyway, I'm sorry about what happened. Do you think maybe SOMETHING, the environment maybe, triggered his actions?

You know. I really don't understand him. <shrugs> His dog aggressive w some dogs but I haven't figured which ones it is. Steve could be right, it could be little dogs. I find it strange that he would hate a puppy like that. I really don't know.

Oh, what a gorgeous puppy! But you have to respect the feelings of the whole family when introducing new members.... Maybe Mikey's just not ready to have a little brother right now.

Little sister.

I guess not. He's a jealous little bugger. I think he also wanted to feel tough
