Havanese & German Shepherd Puppy Advice NEEDED
We have a 4 year old male Havanese and a 5 month old German Shepherd puppy that we brought home at 8 weeks old in August. Our Havanese has not responded to the new pup quite like we thought he would. He seems incredibly grumpy and constantly growls and barks at her, and avoids her as often as possible. He also has started growling at our two children, which is starting to concern me a bit. Sometimes it seems like the two dogs are coexisting okay, but more often than not it seems like our Hav is not adjusting as well as we'd hoped. Any advice? Is the growling at the children and increase in overall grumpiness a concern, or will it pass as the puppy matures? Has anyone been in this situation before?
