My young Lab-Pit mix is great around most dogs. He is very submissive. We have two other dogs in our house and never had a problem. He is the most submissive in the pack. Every time we go out around other dogs he shoes a bit of leash aggression, but is otherwise calm and happy around other dogs. He is a rescue and came to us as an unaltered adult. My husband found him roaming the streets. We have had him two years and are guessing he is about 3. We got him neutered immediately.
Recently we had him around a puppy and he visciously attacked it when it sniffed his nose. I have been around dogs my whole life. No one watching saw any sign of aggression before the attack. Since then we have noticed it was not a fluke. It is every puppy. We put him on the other side of a chain link fence and a glass door and his response is always the same towards puppies. He happily waits until they are close and then attacks.
Any ideas why?
