I have 3 dogs one male yorkie (neutered), one female yorkie (not spayed) and one half lhasa apso, half poodle (not neutered). My female is in heat and its driving my male (the one that's not neutered) INSANE!! Not only is he doing all the annoying "norm" stuff that the males do, he's also become quite mean! He spends all his time following her around and whimpering, he goes crazy if we put him in another room separate from her. He will whine very loudly and scratch up the door. The horrible thing is, he's also being mean to me and my husband. Sometimes he will growl if you get near him and especially when you try & pick him up to get him away from her. Yesterday he bit me (kinda hard) I was trying to unhook his leash from his collar. I love him to pieces and believe me i plan to get him neutered, hopefully next week. He's not normally like this and my female doesn't even want anything to do with him. I'm just getting really frustrated, it's hard to be near him. I constantly worry that he's gonna snap & bite me again. Please help!!
If he can't control himself he needs fixed. Some dogs just can not function when a female is in heat. Its not acceptable and doesn't need to be passed on.Until he is neutered do not let him and the female together again.
My male dobe dealt with our unaltered corgi for years and other than a little whining it was not an issue. Some dogs will become aggressive,go off their food, and forget they are housebroken.
I am not for beating dogs but if my dog bit my it would be in pain far worse than mine. I don't care what the reason is.
Hopefully it will all clear up when she is done. I know some males will always behave like a little brat after they have bred-but no first hand experience with that.

This topic ought to be labeled a rant rather than "need help". You know what needs to be done, it is neither his nor her fault. You are the one in control, and by having two unaltered animals to where he can follow her around that is really not safe nor responsible.
You should have thought this through and separated them when you knew she was going to go into heat or started showing symptoms. Now you are resenting his behavior when this is nature.
Even when he is altered, he may still be interested if she is not and goes into heat again in a few short months. So, you really aren't solving much by only assessing half the issue. Just imagine how terrifying it would be if a neighborhood dog became that aggressive, there would be nothing you could do. I have heard horror stories of what animals have done to get to one another and mate.
My dogs are all intact. My stud dog handles it well when my bitch is in sight but he goes crazy when he can not see her
He is not mean or anything but he bugles when he can't see her so we let ehem in the same room but crate him until it passes.
Don't crate the female as he can still mount her ghrough the crate. She may not want anything to do with him right now but when she moves into standing heat, you will see her start to flag, she will stand for him.
