jack russell female depression

hi, i have a 5yr old JRT, who is going through a phantom pregnancy. 2 days ago i adopted a male JRT. shes ok with him exept when he comes near me, or is playing with a ball. if i say to her go fetch the ball she usually gets up, and runs for it. now she doesnt want to know. all she does is lie down and has a very sad expression and her tails down. is this because the phantom pregnancy or because our new dog? will she get over it?

Are they both fixed? That can sometimes be an issue if one is not and the other is. The best thing is maybe to consult with a trainer to see if they can give some insight. Good Luck!

THANX, FOR ANSWERING. NOW THEY ARE GETTING INTO FIGHTS. IF SHE JUMPS UP ON THE COUCH HE BARKS AND THEN SHE ATTACKS HIM, AND I END UP HAVING TO SPLIT THEM UP. SHES LIVED WITH A FEMALE DOG BEFORE, A POODLE., BUT SHE WAS NEVER LIKE THIS WITH HER

I would think it is more likely due to the new dog. She has been the focus of attention, and now the new dog is taking some of that attention. She will adjust and get over it, I am sure.
