maureen ducharme owner of Mickey Mantle-11 1/2 yr JRT
Why, after 11 yrs of wonderful, happy behavior, is my JRT exhibiting aggressive behavior?
When I go to move him, he growls, even at night. If hes laying on something, if you retrieve it, he growls. He also, bares his teeth when he growls. If you say no and put your hand in a "stay" or down position, he makes as if to snap, he hasn't , but growls and nips at the air. makes me so sad. Is there something I should or should not be doing to encourage his old behavior? He is in perfect health according to vet whom he sees for cpe every yr.
Thank you so much for any help or hints you might give me.
