Hi I have adopted a female and male Jack Russell, sister and brother but they keep on fighting. It seems that the male wants to play (maybe to rough) but the female then starts to get aggressive and bites him. He is very dominant and throws her to the ground. He is much sronger and bigger than her. We have not had any blood but I am conserned. They are only 8 weeks old. I have also noticed the male "humping" the female? I dont understand they are just puppies and we cant have them neutered till they are 6 months. I could use some advise please.

Two Jacks from the same litter
by: Jane

This is probably not what you want to hear but two jacks from the same litter can sometimes be very difficult to handle. They are known for fighting. I would consider giving one up. In the meantime, I would keep everything separate. Do separate walks, separate cages, separate bowls, separate mealtimes. You could also bring in someone who specializes in behavioral therapy for pets since they are so young, especially if you decide to keep them.
Good luck and let us know how it goes!
