GSD Puppy Wants To Play With Yorkie Mix

I have a 14 week old female who likes to play/bite/paw my 5 year old Yorkie mix and my 6 year old GSD. The older GSD handles the puppy very well as she will walk away and bite check the pup if she bites too hard. Unfortunately my Yorkie mix doesn't appreciate the playing as much. If the pup paws or ges to play with her she will nip and lunge. She will not keep attacking, just bite to get the puppy away from her. Should I be concerned that this could escalate or just chalk it up to nothing?

Thanks in advance.

I will also say that the Yorkie generally doesn't like to bothered by any dog at all. She will not go after, just defend herself.

We have a five year old Yorkie....We decided when we brought Tess home that Daisy(Yorkie) was allowed on the couch but not Tess. It gave Daisy a safe retreat when the puppy annoyed her. It was a compromise that worked well for us. We also really worked on leave it with Tess.

If the yorkie doesn't want to play with the puppy, don't let them play together. Even at 14 weeks, I'm sure he's already overpowering the yorkie and he's only going to get stronger. You're really going to need to supervise when they're together.

This reminds me of a thread someone posted the other day. Take a look at what can possibly happen in these type of situations if you let it keep going on.

Bad dog fight...
