Report Help!! in Training & Behaviour Posted October 26, 2020 Thank you for your response. I’m less worried about Nava (our 7 month old) he backs off from him when he gets like that, usually. I’m just not sure if I bit off more then I can chew. Ice (the new boy) he is absolutely my baby, he follows me and always wants to be near me. He hasn’t ever showed aggression towards me, my husband or our two young children. Lastnight we put ice on a leash and let Nava and all the other dogs in the living room. Ice handled it better then I thought he would. However he did get uneasy when Nava would get in his face trying to check him out. Ice is a sweet dog however I do not know his background. I believe he was mistreated because he acts real scared when I do certain things in the house like put in a new trash bag or sweep he gets real uneasy. We actually did not get him from a rescue. We got him from some people who were about to send him to a rescue because they didn’t want to put the effort into him. However this is our third day with him and he has made so much progress, we are willing to put the effort into him by all means. He has SEEMED okay with the other 4 we have (3 girls and another boy but the other boy is a puppy) he just has an issue with Nava. They are both unaltered so I believe it is dominants they are looking for. Ice is much bigger than Nava. I am just scared he may hurt Nava when in all honesty Nava is the sweetest boy and is never aggressive. He just likes to play. Also, my husband and I are starting to have suspicions they he may be older then what they told us he was. I just am not sure how to find out how old he is.
