Hi, I'm kind of new to this forum and its great! I recently received a JR from my boyfriend as a birthday gift. She was sold to him as "miniature" and although I know that this breed doesn't actually exist (well according to Wikipedia anyway) I believe she has a small percentage of chihuahua in her.. She is so tiny! Iv'e had her 2 weeks (10 weeks old) and she's been so loveable and cuddle and of course bundles of energy!
But my problem is that when people she hasn't met come into the house she becomes very aggressive, baring her teeth and barking and growling at them, especially if they pet or lift her (although her tail is wagging most of the time).. This is a particular problem with her when she sees my boyfriend even though he's been around many times and was the one to give her to me. Is there anyway I can overcome this? She is also very aggressive and growls, barks and tries to bite anyone if she can get away with trying to eat our cats cat-food - she will run to the cupboard where the cat-food is stored and when she is lifted away so the cupboard can be closed she becomes aggressive. (this is not the case though with her own food cupboard)
I'll also add that my cat and her wrestle and play fight all the time but I am going to put a stop to this as I don't think this helps the situation.
