i have two boxers, a boy and a girl , both just two , and only a few months apart. The boy bart came first, then i got little fudge two months later. Bart is very jealous and dominant , ive never seen his behaviour in other boxers , and it makes me sad to watch poor little fudge cower away and hide alot of the time because bart is fighting with her. Its gotten that bad that i feel fudge is not happy living with me , and i should find her a new family that will love her and she wont get bashed up constantly, but that would break my heart too. Bart has at least 4good fights with fudge a day, he always starts it, nothing stops him, some say try putting the hose on them, that doesnt work, i have to go in and peel him off her. The only time i can spend anytime with fudge is if bart is locked up, but that means i can never have the two out together, and that doesnt seem much of a life for them. I feed them seperately , They sleep in seperate beds in there divided dog trailer, and when i go out i put them in seperate day runs. Bart then gives me the lonely look , but if i try and put fudge in with him for the day he bashes her up. Yet other times they run and play , and snuggle together and seem best friends, but as soon as im around or my daughter the fights begin and fudge turns to a wobbly mess. After the fights i now lock bart up where he cant see us, and i give little fudge sum us time, and give her a big cuddle so she knows im sorry and i still love her. I think she likes that but i still can tell shes sad, she sits on my lap and looks at me and does that little grunt when i tell her im sorry.
As for breeding the two well i guess that will never happen.
Can anyone shed some light on why bart does this, and what can i do to help little fudge. yes by the way bart is my favourite and did come first, but ive always treated them equally , everything bart has , fudge has too. They both mean the same to me.
