Need some urgent actionable advice regarding our adopted pet dog?
Need some urgent actionable advice regarding our adopted pet dog , Chotu.
History: Found Chotu outside my office in March , 2010.He must've been around 2-3 months old then and was grossly malnourished.
Decided to bring him home to my sister and brother-in-law , and he has been with us since then.
Requisite vaccinations have been given.
Till 2 months back, Chotu had been growing up well , with normal growing up traits , alongwith good health.
However , his behaviour over the last 6 weeks has changed.Following are certain aspects of his behavioural pattern of late:
1. Aggressiveness during sleep : Doesn't allow anyone any movement whatsoever in his proximity.If anyone does, he snarls , and in most cases, charges.
2.More aggressive towards the males (myself and brother-in-law)
3.His aggressive mood is NOT specific to any time of the day.
4.Aggression also caused by outiside house factors, like , if he encounters other street dogs druing his walks,he gets scared outside , but once he is bck inside the house , he retaliatles/vents his anger by charging at us.
5. Does not allow anyone to approach the master bedroom, more so if my sister(Atreyee) is inside.
We had him neutered on Sunday, 14th Nov'10 on the advice of his regular vet who sited his sexual maturity as the ONLY cause for this agression.
However, we have not seen any signs of improvement so far.
The situation is such that, we have to be on gaurd at all times in the house because his mood can fluctuate without a apprent reason.
We stay in an apartment and it is becoming al mot impossible to keep him like this.
Note:Month and half back he was diagnosed with scabies and took a course of Some injections and antibiotics.
