Baba teef

Ons het ''n week terug ''n klein baba Jack Russel teef gekry. Ons het ''n groot 9jarige Skaaphond/Labrador-kruising teef ook. Ons is bang om die twee aan mekaar voor te stel omdat ons nie weet wat gaan gebeur nie, gaan sy die klein baba byt of nie, gaan sy haar aanvaar of nie.... " n paar jaar gelede het ons ''n Worshond teef gehad wat ons nooit van kleins af by die groot hond gesit het nie, en sodra die teef haar in die hande kon kry wou sy haar doodbyt! Maar nou lees ek dat dit heel onwaarskynlik is dat ''n groot hond ''n Baba hondjie sal byt nie... Is dit waar? Ek voel dis ''n groot onreg om die Jack Russel ''n huishond te maak met bietjie voortuin... waar sy eerder (saam met die groot hond) ''n groot stuk erf het om rond te hardloop en te speel! Moet ons dit waag? En hoe gaan ''n mens dan te werk?

Hi Ane

Sorry for the late reply.

I would advise that you start introducing the pup to your other dog now. The union needs to be supervised and equal attention must be given to both dogs. In addition I would also advise that you feed them from separate water and food bowls as this will reduce competition between the dogs. If you find that the adult dog is very aggressive then I advise that you seek the help and advise of a qualified pet behaviourist.

I hope this helps. If you need other info please contact your local veterinary practice/ behaviourist
