My female PP, Tater, is 9 months old now, and she has been in our household since she was a tiny pup. She has never had a different family or owner. She has always been very energetic, playful, smart, & happy. She barks A LOT which I think she learned from our yorkie. She has recently been showing some aggression which concerns us dearly.. Towards kids, adult men, and now my boyfriend which has been with her since day one. It seems like she is scared or maybe territorial. I can understand her being weary of strangers and little kids but she is starting to bite and snap, and I want to help her before she really hurts someone. I have always made it a point to socialize her so I don't know where this is coming from. She will go after a kid or man, like actively pursue them so she can attempt to bite. And she was just laying with my boyfriend one night, and he looked at her and she just lunged and bit him on the lip! Any advise would be great.. Thank you.

Oh dear! Did you ever find out what the trigger for your Puff was?

I hope you found an answer that helped everyone involved, there is nothing more stressful then a pack outta wack.

My pp has become the same way.  I have been blaming it on the rabies vaccine as I have read numerous reports of personality changes subsequently.  He used to love and play with my grandson (12 yo) and just this weak he was growling and snappy when he came to visit.  He is also fearful of everything.  Would love feedback from the community!

hrmmmmmmmmmm, that might be a question for your vet... sometimes neurological changes can be a sign of something like an imbalance... I would always err on the side of caution and take her to a vet sooner rather then later... and if you feel that you cannot talk open and honest with the vet that gave the rabies shot then I would advise finding a different vet and asking up front if they are willing to discuss vaccine reactions. Better to find a good vet you can speak plainly with now, when she is little then waiting and internalizing your concerns to the point of frustration and worry!
