My 9 month old male pit and 1.5 year old female lab mix have fought twice in the past 3 days. Needless to say, the lab was on the losing end both times. I don't know what caused the fights, they happened so quick. The pit got a pretty good hold of the labs snout the first fight, and the ear the second fight. I don't know what to do. He's a great dog otherwise. Very calm and loveable. He's never snapped at a human and as far as I know (I've had him since he was 10 weeks old) he's never fought with other dogs and has been socialized with many of my friends dogs since we've had him.
Today after the short altercation, he knew he did wrong. He was shaking, and it looked like he realized what he did and how upset it made us.
I would hate to get rid of either dog. I also have an 11 year old female husky, so he's used to being around other dogs all the time.
Has anybody had any problems like this?
