Jack suddenly aggressive
by: Michelle

Many times when dogs suddenly become aggressive it means that they are in some kind of pain or ill. It could be some kind of hip dysplagia or major hearing loss or anything really that causes them to get snappy.

Or sometimes it could be brought on by a lot of changes where the dog doesn't know their role anymore and is scared. Did you recently move in with your fiance?

I think it's more on the lines of a possible illness though, so definitely take him to the vet to make sure everything is ok.

Hope everything is ok and let us know how things go!
