Zeus arrived last night instead of tonight. He is currently snoozing on my son's bed. This is the first dog I've not kenneled. My DH works a few blocks from home, so he was home at lunch and said Z is doing fine and hasn't eaten anything or used the house as a bathroom. I'm happy. My son is thrilled.
Zeus and my B Giz don't like each other as of yet. I haven't had two males together, so I don't know what to expect, exactly.
I know that the situation is tense. Zeus was just neutered on Tuesday and is 5 coming up on 6 this June. Giz isn't neutered, although I really need to have him neutered. So Zeus is sore, confused and a little cranky and Giz is just cranky and a B.
Zeus pinned Giz to the couch last night and poor Giz was just COVERED in slobber. He was totally submissive after that. I stayed in between the two until we seperated them shortly after. I presume Zeus was just telling him to keep out of his space, since he didn't actually bite Giz. He just did a lot of growling and I'm pretty sure Giz's head was in his mouth. :eek: I'm sure the outburst had nothing to do with Giz marching up nose to nose and snarling at Zeus, right :rolleyes: .
Why do B's think they are bigger than every other dog? Ah well, we are keeping them seperated and going for small doses with lots of love for both dogs. My terrier mix doesn't seem to mind Zeus too much. She just keeps an eye on him. He is pretty huge. He's very well mannered and laid back. Maybe my other 2 will learn something from him.
Keep the "male bonding" suggestions coming. I know Zeus and Giz will have to work things out themselves, but with Z being a 90 pound dog, I don't want Giz getting hurt so I may be overly cautious. I dont know. My ears are open for anyone with more experience! :o
