New Puppy help! Two dog househould!
My husband and I just rescued a 6 month terrier/Schnauzer/Catahoula Leopard mix - she is a spayed female, almost 3 weeks ago. Overall, her disposition is super sweet and loving - with other dogs and humans. We also have a 3.5 fixed male Jack Russell. We did all the "right" things with introducing the two. However, the issue is their "play" behavior. She is larger than he is, and will pin him up against furniture, continually pounce him, or go for the back of his neck when he isnt looking. They have a lot of growling and mouth biting, but from what I am reading, this is normal "play" behavior. How do we tell the difference? When do we intervene? Anything we can do to help their interaction? Thank you!
*Should say Household, but wont let me edit title!
