Question:

: I have two JRT male and female both neutered. My daughter is sending me,Ike, her JRT (male) not neutered. He is aggesive to her other dogs, one is a police dog (Bloodhound). They can't keep him any longer. My two are well behaved, I live on a horse farm so there is alot of room for exercise. I figure I will have him neutered for starters. Ike is just coming up to be a year old. What would you suggest for me to do to intergrate Ike into our family?

Hi Nancy,

With Ike being aggressive towards her other dogs, it's likely that he may be the same with your dogs. I would definitely get him neutered as soon as possible though.

If possible I would introduce the dogs on neutral turf and not in your home. Introduce one at a time and have both dogs on a leash so you are in control of the situation. There is an FAQ that I will post below and you can also search the internet to find sites regarding introducing a new dog.

It's wonderful that you are willing to take him in and I do hope it works, I just wanted to mention that if he is truly dog aggressive that you may have the same problems at your home as your daughter is having.

Best of luck and I hope it works out for all of you! :o)

Jane
