Notes from foster….
3-26-20.boys adjusting well and only one time growling at food bowl, otherwise very good with each other and fine with foster’s older dogs…….very active and playing in yard
1)The boys are doing fine. We will try to get them a vet appointment next week. We have had some issues with lucky. He growls in his sleep and wakes up aggressive. He has done this a few times. One time he woke up like this and was aggressive and my wife tried to put a blanket over him to calm him down and he bit her. Didn’t break skin or bleed but had a small scratch and bruise on her hand. Most of the time they are very calm and loving . The boys and our dogs tolerate each other but there is some tension between them. Our Granddaughters visited us last weekend and they were very lovey with them. Our Granddaughters are 8 and 10. Both dogs get on furniture and beds, especially Bandit. My wife has been working very hard to teach them some basic commands like sit stay come and lay down. They are learning very slowly but coming around. They have made zero progress on going through the doggy door. They refuse to go near the door unless you open it for them. We did try to separate them just for one on one time and training and they definitely don’t like being separated. They really want to be around people. Also would like to note they do bark when someone is at the door or in the driveway. I will try to get better pics to you soon.
2)To further explain Lucky sometimes he just growls in his sleep. Sometimes he will growl then all of the sudden jump up and bark in a couple different directions and then look a little lost and he usually snaps out of it pretty quickly. Another time he was on the bed with my wife and granddaughters and he was asleep for about an hour he growled in his sleep then woke up suddenly growling at the air and my wife said hush and he calmed down immediately.
