    i have an indoor pit/lab mix. she is around a year and a half and (usually) listens to human commands. Shes never been aggressive towards other dogs, until recently. Even as a puppy she was extremely territorial but would never really act out. I would take her to the dog park and she would interact with dogs and puppies of all ages without a singler problem. Lately however she seems to be friendly upon meetnig new dogs, but after a few minutes she will do the back leg boxing thing that pits are famous for, and cause a lot of tension between dogs and owners. I cant determine if this is a new found hormonal problem, or something else. We have cats and kittens that she is very very friendly with( a little too friendly because they just try and run away) and a dog that she was around a lot as a puppy she is very friendly with still. Its just new dogs and people that this seems to be happening with.

     

    ( as a side note, no one can walk down our alley, get near our cars, or walk near our house without her alerting the neighborhood.)

    History : We got her as a six/seven week old puppy from a family that kept her locked up in a room without much affection or attention. She still has terrible seperation anxiety and we’ve tried herbal drops for that. Even as a puppy she was attentive and sweet, however VERY VERY anxious

    any help on this newfound aggression would be very helpful please respond on here or email

    Some dogs with early socialization .are fine with other dogs. Some fight no matter what… Dogparks are bad idea period.
