I was hoping someone could give me some input on this situation. I have a 7 yr old female dachshund,Sandy. We've had her since she was only a few months old. She is fixed. She is a very sweet dog. My youngest was only 1 when we got Sandy and Ive had 3 more kids since then. She has NEVER barked, growled, or try to bite my kids. This summer she did nip my brother on the leg, and one time my 8 yr old came in(he had a hoodie on)she went crazy barking like she didn't know him.
Today Sandy has tried to get at my 4 yr old. One time she was in her kennel and was biting the door trying to get out. Second time my 4 yr old was in the hall, Sandy saw/smelled her growled and then went after her. She is acting like she doesn't know her. I am in shock! She has never done this before. We are afraid to let Sandy out of her Kennel now! She also tried to bite my niece, who has been coming over for weeks now,
We are dog sitting my sisters Yorkie.They were pretty civil till Sandy accidentally, landed on the yorkie. Then they fought.
