Default Hi from Canada's North!

Hi,

My wife and I live in Canada's Northwest Territories - about 8 hours from a vet clinic (but there's a traveling vet every 6 weeks).

Five months ago we took in a Rott / Lab cross (mostly Lab) who was the runt of the litter but who has worked out very well, about 4 years after I put down my first dog due to rampant cancer.

We just adopted a ... something ... (a Rott / Shepherd, maybe?) that was living under the loading bay at the store where I work. He's no more than 2 months old, and has some very defined possession aggression issues (see other discussions).

My wife teaches primary school, and I'm a Grocery Manager and hold a couple of positions with the Territorial Govt.

Sure glad we found this place, this new pup's behaviour is making us think twice about keeping him...

JohnC

Hi John and

I guess you are pretty remote up there. I'm sure you can get some help here for that little guy you rescued.

HI and welcome to the DF..

and if he's only two months old you can very likely change him.

I had a 5 year old rott with posession aggression I turned him around...

I have to say though it sounds like you live out in nowhere!!!!

Have you got any photos of your dogs, they must be so grateful to you for rescuing them well done.

Hello & welcome to df. Glad to have you aboard. I'm sure the pup will turn out fine with some socialisation & positive reinforcement training.

Welcome! I don't know much about dogs. 5 months is young enough that you can work on the issues. Maybe your wife and you can spend some extra time the next two weeks working on these issues.

Hey, a fellow Canadian! Welcome to the forum
I'd say you have a good chance of turning him around!
