Temper

Molly is bout 3yr old, a rescue jack Russell. Of course she a has the typical personality traits but when my husband walks towards and stands in front of her she growls and even went for him.

Any ideas, or is this related to something that might have happened before we got her?

Jack Russell rescue NEW
by: Greg

With rescues, it's hard to know their background prior to them coming to you. It definitely could be that she had an issue with males in her past.

Men, being tall and having deeper voices can be scary for a dog that has a history. Maybe start by having your husband get down to her level and periodically give her treats so that she associates good things with him. It may also help for the both of you to take her to an obedience class to help build confidence (for all of you) and bonding.
