I was at my mom's yesterday, she has 3 little beagle puppies about 4 months old and a small pomeranian puppy, he's about 5 months now. Just out of the blue one of the beagles jumped on Booboo(pomeranian) pinned him down and just starting biting him all over, he was screaming. My mom and I almost had a heartattack. All the beagles are little girls, my mom took them from someone who couldn't keep them any longer, she planned on finding them each a home. But lately one of the beagles are getting very aggressive and mean towards anything that comes her way. Never have I seen a puppy this young do such a thing. I'm helping her find them homes, but with this aggression that she's been suddenly showing, I'm really worried, I don't want someone taking her home then all of a sudden the puppy doing this to a little child or maybe another pet. Out of all 3 of the beagles one's a barker, one's just really lazy and, the third one is the aggressive one. All three have totally different personalities. They are all sisters, but so different from one another. We've been working with her but it's like it doesn't sink in, I know beagles are known to be stubborn I have a beagle mix I know how it goes. What works on how to stop this? We want to find her a good home but I don't want her doing this to another animal or person even. Altho she has never done this to us, only booboo.
I have never heard of a beagle being so aggressive. It would scare me to let anyone have her especially of course if they kids or other pets. It could be caused from something that happened to her before your mom picked them up or it could be metabolic. Either way good luck and be careful.
I want to find a good home for her but that just scares me I don't want her doing that to someone or another pet even. She has never done it to us or anything only BooBoo my mom's pomeranian. My mom also has another pomeranian and a Big White german shepard, but the only one she does it to is BooBoo. Not sure what to do ?
sounds to me like the pup is trying to work her way up the pack ladder-- She just needs someone who is going to be assertive and be alpha-- She is probably picking on the pom bc the pom is smaller and maybe a bit submissive seeing that there are 2 older larger dogs in the household-- at 4 months they are still puppies and i wouldnt worry so much about it unless the beagle drew blood or maimed the pom-- Its all part of growing up-- My shepherd pups routinely beat the crap out of each other as they get older until they get to where they want to be in the pack order. They very rarely draw blood and if it looks like its getting serious either i step in or one of the older dogs steps in and stop the arguement. Beagles are very high energy dogs and need the time to play and run to their hearts content-- They are also very affectionate dogs in general and many who were bred as pets not hunters need a lot of human companionship-- Sounds like this pup is just growing up and learning. If they were my pups I'd start ALL the pups on a training regimene of some basic obedience-- watch me, sit, stay, heel, down, etc They will need these skills anyway if they are going to go to new homes.
