Fight between George and Belle

We just rescued our 2nd boxer, a 2year old named Belle.  Her and our existing male, George (also 2) have been playing for the past 3 days now and it all seemed well.  This morning the began to fight over a dog bone.  I had a hard time breaking them up because she wouldn't stop going after him.  I don't know if this is something we will be able to work through or not, can anyone offer me some advice? I do want to mention that George was most likely the aggressor, because he had a bone aggression in the past that we thought we solved.  I hate to get rid of her, but I have 2 young children also....HELP!!   :cry:

all good advice ,
remember the pack leader normally wont take food back once it is given , one cup of food at a time and you control it . they earn it  make them work for it .This will establish your position ! every cup of food they earn . get closer eventually you will put your hand in the bowl while they are eating , if its just to each other, every cup they earn move their bowls closer
they need to be supervised , treat them the same as your kids . if your kids hit sombody over food , you would correct that . same thing , be in control walk as a pack , remember both dogs behind you

Good luck
