Rose has a bit of an attitude problem when it comes to meeting dogs. It is an interesting problem that I have never encountered before and worries me a little. When rose meets any dog she will tense up, stare the dog down, and then pull and lunge trying to get at the dog. Then the problem splits. If it is a larger dog, such as our dog Maddie, pretty much the next time she sees the dog she is fine and gets along with the dog. We have not had one single problem with Rose trying to fight Maddie since we have had her at our place, they get along just fine, and act great with one another. Rose also did the same thing with two of our neighbors dogs, but is fine when she shes them out in the yard now.
The other side of the story is small dogs. When rose meets small dogs she does the same thing, but never gives up. We tried to introduce her to Jodis, jodi on the forum, dauchson and it just wasn't happening. We took the two dogs home for the past few days and Rose would not stop fixating on my familys cockerspanial. Even when I had her on a leash in a sit position focusing on me she would fight it and try to look around to find her. She stayed tense and wouldn't relax.
I really want to figure out if maybe it's prey drive because I don't think she is DA. I just want to make sure I can do everything possible for her before I adopt her out. I also want as much info on her so I can give it to any potential adopter. As always any advice is welcomed and appreciated.
