As some know, I'm in the process of possibly adopting an adult Pug from my neighbor. Back story on him is: abandoned in a cemetery in October, not neutered and has an umbilical hernia. He clearly wasn't socialized or trained at all, the people who rescued him (who gave him to my neighbor) said he had some house training issues, which Kat has mostly broke him of (he will alert you most of the time that he has to go outside, has maybe a couple of accidents indoors). I'm concerned because he is OBSESSED with licking Gimli's penis. To the point of chasing him through the apartment, and then tries to dominate him. Like I said, he isn't neutered. I'm wondering how much neutering will calm that down, and what tricks I can employ to break him of that habit. So far, that's the only issue between them, otherwise Gimli will play with him.
The one thing I noticed with Gimli that I didn't like was toy possessiveness. He had a marrow bone (I think it was a hock of some sort) that Snorf's owners dropped off with him. There was two. Gimli pretty much zoned out chewing on one, but if Snorf got too close, he GROWLED, And he actually nipped Shane on the fingers (not hard, from my understanding) when he tried to take it away. He never nipped me when I did that, but he did growl and clamp down.
Those are pretty much the two behaviors I need to fix. I fed them separately to avoid any fights (Snorf in the crate, Gim in the kitchen).Would the bones be too close to food rather than a toy, and that's why Gimli is reacting in that way? Because he didn't get upset when Snorf chewed on his toys, he pretty much ignored him.
Thanks guys <3
