: Hi! I have to start out by saying I LOVE THIS WEBSITE!! It has answered and helped out with so many of the why's in being owned by a jack rusell.
Bless your heart for taking in the little girl. I'm sure she will have a much better life with someone who actually understands her.
It will take time for all of you to get used to the new situation. Keep to your normal routine -- the familiarity of it will help your male deal with the change and give your female a sense of order and security in her new home.
Since they are not drawing blood, and the female is backing off, I suggest it's best to just let them work things out on their own. Of course, you should certainly continue to supervise them and when you can't, they should be separated.
Please take advantage of our search engine; many "second terrier" owners have encountered the same issues you are dealing with so there's plenty of information available in the former posts. :-)
Best of luck to you all and again, thank you for taking in the little girl. And thank you for your kind words; let us know how it's going.
