On Tuesday, We visited Rio, Dana & Darwin. They have two companions, A female German Shepard name Meeko & a male Shiba name Ace.
When we got to their place, we stayed outside. Dana & Darwin already had Meeko & Ace outside from a distance. Yuki got excited as usual, not the good kind. They wanted her to be in the heel position & Dana came over to get her into the position until she calmed down. She was pretty "aggressive" meeting both dogs. Afterwards, we all went for a walk together. It was GREAT!
We came back and chilled together on the lawn. Dana began doing tricks with Ace. Once she told him to speak, Yuki started barking & tried to nip him.
Yuki doesn't get along with Meeko. Meeko is very submissive and calm. Yuki just bullies her & we had to keep Meeko inside. We had to put Yuki in MANY submissive positions when she gets excited or "aggressive". It took Yuki awhile, but she finally started to play with Ace. Then back to being "aggressive". Then began to play. I believe she wants to, but doesn't trust any dogs.
Now on walks, she gets extra "excited" when she sees another dog. We're working on her.
I think there's 2 probabilities. Well, I came to the conclusion that the person who bought her in the first place didn't really socialize her. Kept her inside. Then she became a stray. The Shelter told us she was adopted in December 2008 and became a stray again (don't really know for how long both times). During those times being a stray, I'm pretty sure she just had to fight other dogs for survival.
Wish us luck.
