Ok this is strange I have neve had a dog thet is like this. My Dashia loves the Papillion/Pom mix us and our friends rescued recently but she hates my friends 2 year old pit bull. I just don't know why. The new rescue we thought was a puppy turned out to be about a year and a half. Some poeple tell me that a small dog looks like a puppy and she is protective on instinct but what about the smell? He must smell grown. Could it just be that she feels less threatened by small dogs? I just really want to know what makes her tick.
Do not walk in front of me I might not follow. Do not walk behind me I might not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
I would tend to agree with your guess. She may feel intimidated by bigger dogs. It might lessen somewhat if there is an old, mellow dog for her to hang out with-- one that pretty much lays around and is very calm but isn't going to be irritated at her puppy playfulness.
