Krypto Super Dog
My daughter brought home a dog which (to me) looks very much like a Blue Heeler. Someone dumped it at her b/f's house, then the neighbor got drunk and started beating it for getting in the trash. Last night, I'm doing the dogs in/dogs out switch, and had my daughter come help me. The Blue Heeler was trying to get inside and she popped him in the nose (not hard, I was there, it was a tap and a "NO"). Anyway, he snapped at her, but didn't actually get close to her hand. I don't know the temperament of these dogs, but yesterday, this dog seemed extremely snappy at Zoe, who she usually plays really well with. They played well yesterday, but at times, Lucy (BH) would snap at Zoe. She kept picking on the Shih Tzu till I had to get him out of the fence because she wouldn't leave him alone. My question is, are these dogs usually snappy at humans and other dogs? My daughter loves this dog and has given her lots of attention and love since bringing her home. I don't know if she was just snappy because she wanted inside, or if this is typical of the breed. I wanted to re home her, but now, I'm thinking if she continues with this behavior, I'm going to end up having to do something that is going to make my daughter hate me. She didn't want to listen to me last night, and defended the dog snapping at her, but I told her I won't put up with that dog snapping at her or anyone else. I accept and manage all their DA issues, but won't put up with any HA issues, nor will I put that dog with anyone else who could be bitten by her. I really don't know anything about this breeds temperament, and hoping someone on here can help??
