We adopted a male Beagle 3 days ago...he's 7 weeks old and our Corgi Bella is almost 5 months now. At first our Bella was so excited about him being there...she wouldn't stop playing with him. But today, I noticed she wasn't being herself. She wasn't hyper or excited as she normally is, and she really had a sad look on her face. We've tried our best to let her know that she is still the important and number one dog...we give her attention first, and give her more attention...and we feed her first. Everything we do with them...we try to do for her first. She seemed ok at first, and I guess it will take some time for her to get used to the idea of another dog at home, but my heart just sank when I saw her sad today, I had never seen her that way...and she's my little baby!
She is also getting a bit obsessive over her things when the beagle (Liam) comes close. They cannot eat from the same bowl, even though I trained with Bella by putting my hands in there while she ate. Will she always be this way, or is it just because its still new to her. I just worry that they get violent with each other.
