So there's a dog staying at our house until Friday, accompanying our dog. Greentext inc.
>Dog #1: Three year old male wheaten terrier; neutered; usually fairly mild-mannered; very sociable with people and other dogs, fairly well-socialized.
>Dog #2: six month old jack russel terrier. Male; not neutered, but similar to dog #1 in temperament, behavior ... basically everything.
>They met each other at the place where the local dog training association does its obedience classes (is this normally a thing? Because for some reason here it's a thing). They played together fine, they had fun and seemed to like each other fine.
>Dog #2 enters our house; dog #1 seemed excited as usual; but starts growling and lunging at the other dog. We've had to keep the two dogs apart, because since then dog #1 has reacted to the presence of dog #2 in the exact same way he reacts to cats (growling, barking, doing everything he can to get to them, blah blah blah high prey drive dog blah.).
>Dog #2 is being super submissive and is afraid of dog #1, which dog #1 seems to take as an invitation to do more growling, barking, lunging etc.
>It's not particularly normal for him to act like this, and it's definitely past "lol #1 is just being dominant" or whatever.
What do? So far we've just kept them a floor apart and done the whole "crate and rotate" thing to take them outside.
sorry for the tl;dr, I just don't know where else to turn

My dog was attacked by another dog today:
>walking through nearby high school campus that is empty because of holiday
>let my short legged JRT off the leash because she stays close to me and heels when I call her, also, it's an empty campus
>turn corner, see guy(supposed school board worker) working on a truck
>lean down to put my dog back on her leash cuz she likes to run up to people and gets pets
>as I'm standing up, suddenly see a blue pitbull that I hadn't seen up until then rushing towards me
>grabs my dog by the throat
>worker I also didn't see and me separate them
>three huge lacerations on my dogs neck(she's at the now)
>panic, rush to animal ER
>once everything is settled there, rush back to scene
>both workers are gone and they were the only ones on campus
Both workers denied ownership of the pit. It had a collar on and was nowhere to be seen when my family and animal control searched the campus. My Dad was told by the guy who helped separate the dogs that he thought the dog belonged to the "plant engineer", i.e. the other guy there. I did a quick Google and found a name attached to said position and a telephone number.
My question is, how should I proceed from here?
Again, sorry for the long post, I couldn't think of where else to ask. I've never been so shaken up in my life.
pic related, she's at the vet right now awaiting stitches

My favorite squirrel came around yesterday, again. He's 200% overweight, completely obese, but it's winter so what the hell, I keep giving him crackers. I got some hexagon shaped ones I've been putting out that he takes and perches on the post to eat. The great thing about these is they're like wheat shurikens. So I took a couple and started flinging them at him as he ate, just for kicks. I finally ended up whacking him with one right in his puffy tail. He didn't even stop chewing, just slowly turned around to face me as if to say "what the fuck are you doing?" He grabbed the one that bounced off him and left. Then a few minutes later I see him perched on a branch, barking loudly, and that went on for like 30 minutes. Obviously he was pissed for some reason. So far today no squirrels have come by, which is unusual, but I did see my fat one prowling the trees. He'd look over, then just disappear. I think he wants to come back for more crackers, but I think I really hurt his feelings, so he's not sure what to do. But it was all in good fun, it's just a cracker.
Oh well, taunting wildlife general.
Avoid Putting Down Dog

/an/ first time poster here, i have 2 dogs,
1 of them barks all the time and shows teeth ready to bite and its been going on for too long.
when my dad just sits where he always does at the kitchen table, for no reason the dog starts barking and showing teeth being an agressive dick.
Now he knows well enough that the past 10 years he has never been allowed in certain places in the house, such as the couch and stuff, and over time he tried his luck but now its all he does. this little shit just went for the couch in front of our face.
when of course punished he started the whole bark, teeth, bite air routine. its the 3d time today he did this.
the moment he is released from his cage he just does it again.
my parents dont want to spend any more money on this dog and are willing to have it put down. i dont disagree but i want to know if there is any obvious reason this is happening, and why this little fuck has attempted to become pack leader the last half year.
any way to stop it from doing this thing or should we put it down?
