Bruschi's mom here. Ok so fostering Tyson is NOT going as planned. Bruschi and him are now fighting every chance they get. Bruschi is not, and has never been an alpha dog. He's the most calm and passive dog and loves to play with all dogs. The first night, Tyson was all over Bruschi and Bruschi literally laid there and just whimpered and shook. By day 2, Bruschi had apparently had enough and actually started snapping and snarling at Tyson! Bruschi has never in his life even growled at another dog, let alone show teeth and snarl!! Well today is Day 3, and it's only getting worse. Every time the 2 of them are in the same room, they go at it and I have to break them up and put them in opposite sides of the house. It is EXHAUSTING! I don't know what to do to get them to get along, and I am not going to let them fight it out in my living room. Tyson has been shuffled from one foster home to the next, and he is SUCH a good dog, and wants someone to love him. That's very evident. But he is trying to claim me.....and everytime he comes near me, Bruschi goes after him. It's putting me in a difficult situation and I am not sure what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks! Christen, Bruschi's Mom
