The day they get into a tiff over a toy, blanket, pillow or piece of lint on the floor will be the day you come home to dead dogs.

She is a very pushy, territorial, and possessive dog. Tess can share just fine, although she will do drivebys on occasion and take Jack's toys right out of his mouth, but he lets her. If he has something he really wants to keep, he lets her know she cannot have it.
Once they decide it is fun to fight, I think they make up reasons to do so.

While I believe all dogs have pack instincts, it's what their pack is comprised of that makes the difference.
I don't expect my dogs to get along with other dogs & in fact, whenever we get a new dog, I don't even bother trying to "introduce" that dog into a "pack" as that is not why I got the new dog. I could care less if my mutts can run around & play together. And they could care less as well. They weren't bred to be another dog's playmate.
