• Hello we have Jack who is 4 years old. about 5 months ago he was bitten/drug over our fence by a cyottie. His behavior is different know. He has bitten my son & my husband we were concedering getting rid of him but I dont know what to do. We did get another dog about a year ago and thas really I dont know if jack got jealous or not. They got into a fight last sat and know they have been seperated for over a week and jack seems to be different. Im only afraid theat jack might bite my 5 yrd old daughter. Please help I dont know what to do. Get rid of Joleen the 15 month old bordercooli/lab that we have had for a year or jack that we have had since he was a puppy. HELP FAMILY VERY CONFUSED:(😕


  • you need to talk to a vet and have a complete physical done. ask for a thyroid pannel and ask about tick born diseases (both these things can cause behavior problems/changes). Then ask about a good behaviorist and talk to them. Also, I'd encourage you to talk to Jack's breeder and see if she has any insight.

    That would be my exact suggestions also

    I agree with Agilebasenji in getting a complete physical first. How bad was Jack injured from the coyote?


  • Thank you to everyone. We had the Thiroid panel done and a complete physical done. we had the physical done right after the bite. The thyroid was done about 4 months ago and it was all perfect. My husband & I are know thinking that he may be jealous about the other dog. Help we love both the dogs but I think I may feel better on getting Joleen a different home. IS THAT BAD. I am so confused. HELP WE hav had Jack since a baby and Joleen since she was 5 months. 😕


  • Have you discussed this behavior with his breeder? Have you tried a behaviorist? And are you sure it was the full thyroid panel, not just the one part that is done with Vet's regular blood work?
