Chance has always gotten along great with others. Especially other dogs until we moved into our new house and our neighbor walked by with two Australian Shepherd's. Chance immediately started snarling and pulling on the leash acting like he wanted to kill them! He is only 1/3 the size of those two dogs but he could care less. :eek:
The embarrassing thing is that we are on the same schedule so we run into each other daily. I've even tried to introduce the three of them but it is not working. Chance starts foaming at the mouth and snarling with a mohawk! He looks like pure evil when he does this.
I can't even try to have a conversation with my neighbor. We have to speak from opposite sides of the street. Its awful!
This morning I took them outside to potty still half asleep and Chance bolted towards the street. I just about lost him because I did not expect him to run full force. Thank god I had the leash rapped around my hand or else he would of been gone. I could not figure out what he was going after. He started growling and snarling again. That’s when I saw my neighbor coming from a block away. Sheesh! I could not control Chance and it was ridiculous.
Has anyone else's Basenji acted like this and if so, what do you do????
Do you think he really would attack the Shepherd's?
I hate it when he gets like this. I can't control him and my neighbor walks by staring at me while I am trying to calm Chance down. I've yelled across the street telling my neighbor that he really is a good boy and that this just isn't like him trying to make the situation better. :rolleyes: This sucks!!!
