Bandit's home!

Last night at the SPCA when the lady brought Bandit out she immediately recognized us. Bandit jumped right up on me! That was something we could not get her to do at home, she also jumped up on Hef's dad. Then we got her outside and ran to the car because it was raining Bandit kept looking back at us. She was so excited to get home she kept lunging toward the house when I took her out to go potty.
We had a few growls at Shadow, but nothing terrible and NO FIGHTS! What we are doing is having Bandit sit in a room with Shadow and having Bandit sit and get a treat. We had Bandit on a leash most of the night and if she growled she got removed from the room and shut in the bathroom by herself for a bit. We also fed Shadow in the basement and Bandit upstairs. So far so good. We have an appointment on Sat. the 27th with a Trainer who works with aggresive dogs and behavior modification. I'll keep you updated!

YAY! Bandit's home!!!

I don't know much (anything) about socializing doggies.. but I do know with bunnies that the new bunny can be VERY territorial 'cause, hey, they gotta try and claim some of the space as their's from the owner..

So I would think.. maybe? .. that the doggies are just trying to figure out their footing.. pawing?

But as long as Hef gets treats and snuggles, it's all good, right? ;)

I happen to read some of your post and you are such an inspiration to pet lovers. Welcome home to Bandit and hoping you do all well.
And regards to Hef as well. My bunnies are out of their rabbit hutches, enjoying a playtime with me and then focusing to nibble their sticks.
