My dog growls

Hi, Doris is a 5 month old Miniature Schnauzer that has some behavioural issues. ( My older dog had puppies – 4. )

At about 8 weeks all the puppies went to their new homes. But due to circumstances one was returned. We had this puppy for a week then he went to his new home.
Since he left Doris has turned in my eyes aggressive. Barking and growling at people even for a stage us, she would bark and growl at us. She was socialised and handled from birth so I don’t think it is that, but has anyone experienced this before? Or do you know of this happening before?
Thank you in advance

I'm sorry you didn't receive the help tou we're looking for.

Honestly, I don't think there is enough information in your original post to guess at what is going on or provide much in the way of specific training help.

What I would recommend based on the fact that it sounds like a change un behavior is:
-a thorough vet exam looking for anything medical that may be causing or exacerbating the behavior.
-finding a qualified trainer/behavior consultant/behaviorist to assess your dog and help you with a training/behavior modification plan.
This thread may help you find a pro in your area.

I've never owned a female dog, let alone dealt with puppies and weaning, so have no firsthand experience to post with. I know my bonds and attachments and grieve so she may be angry that the puppy came back and then was taken from her again and see you as the person who took it away, but that's a guess.

I have experience with breeding my horse and raising her son and their attachment is still strong and she gets frantic if separated thirteen years later. They've lived at different places and remembered each other after a year and a half or more separation. I've read similar stories of puppies and mothers and bonded dogs remembering each other after years apart.
But the above advice of a vet exam and a behaviorist or trainer is good advice for growling.
