In the first pic is our new dog on the right, Zoe. Oliver is on the left. We have had her for about a week and a half. Oliver and Zoe play well together. They run around all the time and wrestle like big bro and lil sis.
Zoe was a bait dog to give a little history. We don't know much more since she is a rescue. When she was found she was chained up, sun burned and scarred. The vet is putting her at 18 months max and 37lbs. She has been spayed and she is house-broken. She is food aggressive with Oliver so we separate them in their crates during feeding. Bones are a no-no but chew toys and kongs don't make her show the aggressive behavior.
The only issue that we are slightly worried about his her playing technique. She loves to nip at Oliver's legs since he is bigger than her. he weighs in at 60lbs. She loves to do it so much that she is leaving bite marks on his skin and she even drew a little blood last night. Oliver doesn't seem to care, but we are wondering if this leg nipping can be stopped or if it's normal.
She doesnt really nip at people and she behaves pretty well. Should we be concerned with this nipping behavior?
bad idea to take in a bait dog?
