These things happen. My 2 so far haven't had any tiffs that I've witnessed but Kelsi and Hannah had a love/hate relationship in earlier years, it was only in the last 5 years that they seemed to mellow. Scruff of the neck works well, I had to do it to Maddie twice as she pinned Hannah down and after the 2nd time she never did it again. She sulked too.

I can relate, unfortunately.  Nothing is scarier than when your dogs go at it and begin to fight.  Our Brodie was a fighter....she wanted to take on everyone in the house at one time or another.  We learned to be very careful about snacks and treats so that nothing would set her off.  If she did attack one of the other dogs, grabbing her by her Westie tail and lifting her back legs off the ground, would stop the fight.  But it's very upsetting.  Good luck in working through it.

It is so upsetting, but I totally agree you can't send him back!!

You guys are in charge, and they'll figure it out. It's like human siblings - sometimes they hate each other too, but that's just too bad. Life requires we get along with people we'd rather not sometimes too.

You did good - you separated them and hopefully they learn soon actual physical fighting is not tolerated.

Awww...So scary when that happens Annie, when a fierce fight breaks out. They can happen just from a small crumb of food falling to the floor and it becomes war. I can remember Maddie and Emily having a few tiffs.It took breaking them up by the scruffs and them being separated to cool down.
I hope with time Nimby and Andrew settle in to being more mellow with each other like Maddie and Emily did.

Oh my goodness  a fight over bread. so sorry to read this but we know it can happen only here it was over in a few minutes.

 I agree you can't blame it on Andrew it is instinct and he has now such a loving caring home. It will take time ..

  We hope in future they become friends.

Hugs and love to all. Levi, Angel Moshe and Yoka
