We have rescued an adorable 2 year old Havanese, he is learning to be a good house doggie, is almost accident-free by now, learnt quickly all the basic commands, and I adore him to pieces.
Unfortunately, he is VERY POSSESSIVE of me. VERY!!!! He growls at everybody who comes close to me, and that includes my husband. I would hate to give Max away, and I enjoy him dearly, but my hubby is miserable being barked at and chased away. He wants a dog that will be happy to see him come into the room, not growl and back away angrily.
When I am not at home, my husband and Max are basically BFFs, Max listens to him, wags his tail, follows orders, likes to be walked by husband, gets treats, fetches his toys and so on. But the moment I appear on the horizon things change, Max starts growling and treating my man as a competition to be chased away.
Please give me some advice! I will have to give Max away if there is all this barking because I am sorry for the hubby and I am not looking forward to it.
