I need some advice... My husband and I brought Lola to my parents house for the weekend to visit. They have a Tibetan Terrier (about the same size as a Corgi, just a bit taller) female that is 12 years old and very friendly named Madison. We were trying to figure out how to introduce the two without any issues. Lola's been so calm with other dogs at the park and with humans I didn't think there would be an issue... I was really wrong.
Any time Madison gets within 5 feet of Lola (she just wants to play), Lola will growl and bare her teeth pretty violently... we ended up putting her crate in our room with us and she's been OK, but that's not fair to her to be crated away from everyone else. We moved her crate into the family room today and Madison, curious as always, wandered up to Lola in her crate. Lola lashed out and had she not been in her crate, would have probably attacked and hurt Madison badly. It was really scary. We're trying to not traumatize either dog, but I'm not sure we can bring Lola back again if she's going to be like this. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice as to how to introduce the two of them where Lola doesn't want to rip Madison's head off? :( I've never seen this side of her or had a pet act this way around anyone before. They are both spayed females (Lola is 6 and Madison is 12). Thanks!
