We have 5 dogs, all rescues, all different breeds
from a tiny, Teacup Chihuaua (4 1/2 lbs) to an
18 lb Red Heeler. The three in between are
each about 7 or 8 lbs.
They've been together for about 8 years and
have always gotten along famously.
All of a sudden, 3 of the dogs, including the
heeler have attacked the Pomeranian. If
I'd not pulled them off of her, I'm not sure
that they wouldn't have killed her.
She was punctured in a number of places and
very sore and not mobile for several days.
My husband came in today because he heard
a raucous and the three dogs again had Bella
trapped and were fiercely fighting with her.
I will REALLY appreciate some guidance, thoughts,
insights as to what may be causing this behaviour
and what I can do to stop it and protect Bella.
Bella is a very gentle dog - probably 9 or 10 years
of age. Her pack mates are roughly the same age.
I'm now afraid to leave her alone.
Thank you so much for your help
