Non GSD HELP.. newly fixed male humping
Ok so, we just got this new english bulldog from the shelter. Hes a 5-6 year old bully who up until today, was intact. Now, we get him to my moms house and her dog (another bully) are outside and I bring the dogs together to meet. They seem ok, a little nervous maybe, but for the most part ok. We get in the house and into the back yard. My moms dog after playing a bit throws up and Bruno the newly fixed male is trying to hump her dog and hike his leg on the furniture. Now my mom starts to think this is a mistake... she should have gotten the dog at all... shes afraid shes bitten off more than she could chew... well poop.
Now, I did talk with my mom about all of this. I told her A) he still has all this testosterone in his system because hes only 30 min out of the vets B) he needs to be in a 2 week lock down. This way he can learn whats what and gives EVERYBODY time to adjust to the new situation. C) the humping will stop when he isnt allowed to do it any more ie he should be in lock down for first 2 weeks and after that if he does it, he goes back in his crate.
My mom is also taking care of my dad (stage 4 nsc lung cancer) so she has her hands full. I did tell her that if she feels she cant do it then I will contact a rescue for her. He also tested high heart worms which I planned to pay for so just straight adopting him out imo is a bad idea. Her other bully is very calm and she was expecting him to be similar to that.
I guess I am just looking for reassurance here, guidance. I helped my mom get this dog because she wanted him and I am responsible for both of them in this situation. I suppose in the end, my husband and I will have to foster him until a home can become available if push comes to shove.
