    Hi..I have 3 dogs at 10 year old that has been with us for 10 years. 2 years ago(after the death of our JR rescue) we adopted a 2 year old JR cross street dog from Zante.They have pretty much tolerated each other since. About 2 months ago we adopted another rescue, a cross from Romania at 5 months old.The JR cross immediately seemed to take him as her puppy, lots of grooming etc and they are more friends then the pup and the older dog.However, the JR cross has started to attack the older dog if she and the pup play together.She watches them and then goes into full on attack. Is it a jealousy protective thing or domething else and more importantly how can we stop it? Any help greatly appreciated xxx

    So it's the two girls that are fighting?

    It sounds like although they have ”tolerated” each other, the new pup is a catalyst. Maybe resource guarding, maybe a hormonal trigger?

    But - sorry - when two females take a dislike to each other, they often don't get over it and many people find separating them is the only solution.
