They have been there well over a year. They love it because it's a big farm that gives them plenty of room to explore and play so I doubt that is the issue. I went down today and I took her out on a leash and she did great. Well enough I let her off the leash for a decent bit of time and she ate as well. My other dog was a little more comfortable around her today. But he was sniffing her "lady parts" even though she is supposed to be spayed and he is fixed as well. I am wondering after some reading if the job was not done correctly and she is in heat and having hormone issues.

9646gt My father in-law said he let Lilly out again today and she wouldn't even wag her tail and she normally throws it around like crazy. She hasn't eaten in a day or so and she growled at our other dog she had attacked and made him nervous enough that he ran and hid under some farm equipment. We have a vet appointment saturday morning. Anything I should specifically ask them to check? I am lost as to what to do. These changes took place in her behavior almost instantly. She has NEVER had any type of behavior like this at all.

Chip18 Attacking a dog and attacking a person are two different things! How long before "you" can have control of the situation?

9646gt Thanks for the responses. She said it for sure did not look playful at all. Almost more of a vicious attack. But at the same time our GSD weighs probably upwards of 90lbs (she's highly active and stalky build) and our other dog may weigh 65 pounds soaking wet. And the GS didn't even break skin and I know for a fact she could have if she wanted to. But my mother in law said she was latched on pretty good. I just don't know what to think and they are afraid to let her free in fear she may attack a person. I will be getting them both to the vet as soon as time allows.

Any other opinions or advice?

Sadly I would have to say, I have reason to believe your vet is correct. Don't think that is the case here however.

Bridget Is it possible that they were just playing and the in-laws didn't recognize that?
