I have 3 wonderful dogs, a black lab and 2 puggles. They have always gotten along and no behavior problems other than the typical chewing stuff and the puggles are always wanting to chew paper/pillows.
A few days ago they caught a rabbit in the backyard at 5 AM when we let them out to pee. They ripped the thing apart and literally ate every single piece of this poor rabbit. We couldn't get the rabbit away from them and they were tearing it apart. Okay, so other than being absolutely horrified there were no reprucussions, Vet said it was okay because they are up to date on all shots, they didn't get sick.
BUT now all of a sudden the black lab who is the sweetest dog ever is violently attacking the small Puggle at feeding time. I mean really BAD and mean. We started feeding them separately but as soon as the lab sees the little puggle she violently attacks her. Yesterday she grabbed her by the neck and was whipping her around growling while the puggle cried and I was screaming trying to get her off. My husband came running in and it took him a good few minutes to rip the lab off the puggle.The poor puggle ran right into the bedroom and hid under the bed for 3 hours and was trembling.
Now the puggle is traumatized and won't even attempt to eat and won't even go near the kitchen at feeding time. I've been hand feeding her while she curls up in the corner of the couch.
I have no idea what to do and why she would suddenly get this violently aggressive at feeding time and with just the one puggle. I called the Vet and they said to feed her separately which obviously didn't work.
Any ideas?? Anyone experience this before? I am at a loss and I feel so bad for my little Puggle, she is terrified now to even eat.
