6 weeks ago we rescued a 3 year old bitch jack russell.
Then 2 weeks ago we rescued a 1 year old boy jack russell. We were amazed at how well they got along. They played together, slept together, and followed each other around all day. They would sometimes get a little jealous of each other, but we thought that was natural and to be expected, as both are very loyal and affectionate dogs. Then today they had a fight in the garden, it was particularly nasty and the little boy came off worse and limped away. The bitch 'Poppy' is twice his size about 6 kilos, while Bertie is about 3 kilos. Unfortunately, we didn't see what caused the fight but we think they could have been squabbling over a dog toy (there was one close by and they both love toys). What can we do to prevent the dogs from fighting as we are now worried it might happen again? Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks
