We just adopted a 4 1/2 month old puppy from the animal shelter. She is doing great except that she doesn't want to go outside at night with our other dog. They seem to get along okay unless there is food in the yard. I feel so bad when I have to put her out. She is really smart.
My other issue is the food thing. Our older dog is almost 5 years old and is a German Shepherd/Pyrenees mix and weighs about 85 pounds. The puppy is a mix of some sort. The vets think she's lab or border collie. Anyway, if there is food in the bowls, our older dog thinks that the food in the bowls in all hers (which right now it is because the puppy comes in for her food since she is on puppy food right now) but there will come a time when the two will be fed together and I don't want anything to happen to either one.
I need some advice.
