Would you believe it?

Look at those sweet puppies! Don't let them fool you! They had several dog fights! As I mentioned when we first brought Bandit home they fought over a rawhide, then they had a fight last week when we were all messing around, wrestling, and on Saturday, Bandit got into a fight with the neighbors dog, who is known to be agressive. After that fight was broken up Bandit turned on Shadow and fought her again in the backyard. No one was ever hurt in these conflicts. After the fights on Saturday Hef's dad and I panicked and took Bandit back to the SPCA.
Now we are miserable and miss her terribly! Sunday was just awful without her. Monday morning we couldn't take it and called asking to get her back. Bandit was being reevaluated to see if she could be with other dogs and if she could be adopted again. Bandit would have passed to be adopted into an only dog home, but I said we really wanted her back and missed her and were very attached and wanted to make things work out. They said we could bring Shadow in for a "meet and greet" and they will be evaluated together to see if they think it is ok. The SPCA has been working with Bandit to get over her dog aggression and I have a friend's recommendation for a trainer who can additionally help. Tomorrow night at 6pm we have to take Shadow to the SPCA for the meet and greet, wish us luck!

I hope things work out for the two pups to be together. Sometimes life is tough.

It sounds like Bandit has a problem dealing with excess energy sometimes; she gets so worked up she doesn't know what to do with herself, so she ends up attacking poor Shadow.

I hope things can be worked out; a good trainer can work with her and show her how to channel that energy into more positive behavior. We'll be thinking lots of good thoughts for you guys.

Oh honey, this is awful! I know you are so stressed and sad over all this. Wishing you lots and lots of luck that it will all work out. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I also have two bunnies and before they stay in separate rabbit hutches because they don't like each other and now they are room mates. That is my greatest accomplishment this month because I have finally made my bunnies friends. I just hope your two dogs will finally realize the importance of company.

I also have to rabbit hutches in the house but surprisingly my rabbits prefer to stay in one hutch and do the rabbit file and burrowing.
