I'm not assuming anything. Years of experience, study and shared knowledge have taught me what I am saying to you. If she is pushing you now, even the more reason to heed the warnings and it's not something to brag about. In the years that I've been fostering, not one dog has truly settled in after 2 weeks without an adjustment period further down the line. And I don't take in cute little puppies either.
This one will turn out like all the others. Behavior patterns don't lie.
Like all the others? You mean like Nala where everyone said, "don't get a female, they will fight!" and I said "She fits." within the first two weeks, and she did fit?
Or like the little other female, my foster that fit the pack and my male foster that I rehabilitated?
Zenzy is a whole different story and nowhere near comparable with Ma Deuce. Ma Deuce is NOT Zenzy.
So what other dogs do you talk about? What behavior pattern are you talking about?
Also, just for the record, Judge and Yukon have never fought. They never, never, never had a fight, so I don't know where Justine is taking that from.
Zenzy went after the Great Dane. She then went after the others. I probably should have never brought her to the US and I underestimated the situation, plus the situation we were in, wasn't exactly the best. We had no other option and I did what I had to do.
I know my pack, I know what I can expect out of my pack. I had so many dogs going in and out of this pack it's not even funny.
I had the Great Dane, the Dachshunds living with us. Indra, Judge and Yukon had no issues with other dogs in the pack.
Nala, Indra and Yukon have no issues with other dogs and Ma Deuce does fit in. She may make adjustments but I am expecting that anyways, since she's just a year old.
Do not tell me what my pack can handle or can't handle. You do NOT know my pack. You do not know Indra or Nala or Yukon and you do not know Ma Deuce either.
The only other dog that I removed after three days was a Husky/Malamute mix because he didn't fit the pack and it was just not worth it.
If what you say were true, I could have never visited Lana in Texas and threw my dogs into her pack of females and spent the afternoon together.
