Jack Russell boy and girl fighting
by: Mandy

I'm sure you love both pups equally but I would seriously consider rehoming one of them because their fights sound vicious with blood being drawn. Usually dogs of the opposite sex get along better then of the same sex however not in this case. I'm worried that as they get older and stronger the fighting will get worse. For now I would keep them separate - for everything. Separate sleeping areas, separate bowls, separate meal times, separate walks. You could also consider bringing in a pet behaviorist for specific techniques. But in reality, one bad fight and one of the dogs could really be harmed.
