I have a Cattle Dog right now,but am looking for another full time dog. In addition to her, I have a variety of other breeds from foster.Right now I have a foster GSD and a GSD/Malinois mix.The GSD is 3 year old female and the GSD/Mal/Husky is 6 year old male. My Cattle Dog is 9 years old and a female.

GSD - 3 yrs intact male
Pit mix- approx. 3 yrs spayed female
Beagle - 9 yrs spayed female

Beagle lives with mom, but we are all together very frequently. Penny (Pit) used to be the queen bee, but power has since shifted to Aiden's (GSD) direction. Freckles (Beagle) just goes with the flow.

gatordog did they fight to to change status or did it just happen on its own in the past month or so slowly? when your male mature around 3?

Gharrisc does your house have a alpha?

I have never had more than one dog at a time i always feared the idea but love to hear about others.

It depends on what you consider 'fight'. They were both introduced to living together in the same home when they were 1.5 yrs, so they did need to adjust. I let them work out their own issues (and I never let it escalate). There were a few squabbles in the beginning over a toy or food, but only lots of noise and flailing without any injuries or serious bites. I'd say it's been at least 8 months, if not longer, since any tiny sign of a 'fight'.

Penny used to guard absolutely everything from Aiden (and to be fair, she was in that house first.) Now, Aiden is definitely 'alpha'. He will take things from right out of Penny's mouth if it's his. It seems strange, but since Penny was so undersocialized with dogs when we first got her, having Aiden to kind of 'boss' her around keeps her in line. He taught her do's and don'ts in doggy language and now they live together perfectly.

Aiden just turned 3 about a week ago and I think he's really just starting to come into his adult demeanor.

I have a poodle and my sister who lives with me has the yorkie


Mininature Poodle/Yorkshire terrier (mix?)

Spayed female/neutered male

Two years old next month/12 years old

Jazzy is alpha of the three dogs, though Delgado is pushing back sometimes so who knows. Nemo spends most of his time sleeping or in our arms so he doesn't really care lol

We're also looking at fostering for a local rescue soon

I only have a 2 yr old female, unspayed (until November) shepherd. But my parents have 4 dogs and we visit often.

When I go there, this is the "alpha" order I suppose:
Dakoda- 67 lb, female purebred GSD, 2 yrs, unaltered
Pikachu- 8.6 lb, female pekingese/chihuahua, unaltered, 5 yrs
Motomo- 78 lb, male lab/husky/akita, neutered, 5 yrs
Tattonka- 55 lb, male husky/beagle/dalmation, neutered, 6 years
Honalelu- 6.8 lb, female purebred chihuahua, spayed, 5 yrs

Aside from Kaiser (6 month GSD) I have Dakota who is a GSD/collie mix that I rescued at 8 weeks. She will be 7 years old in December and is sweet, laid back, and pretty much an omega dog...although she is subtly making it known that she is the queen bee around here. Kaiser never challenges her (yet) and she never responds aggressively, but in her own way she puts him in his place while not being overt about anything. Shes a special girl I also have a cat, who I rescued a couple years ago (she was 1 or 2 at the time, and is now 3 or 4). She does her own thing, though she is very dog-like in many of her actions and adores Dakota. Kaiser constantly tries to play with her, and while she will growl and make a fuss she also instigates and then allows him to chew on her. Its an...interesting relationship, to say the least.

I have 2 German Shepherds and a Maine Coon. Yes, the MC is considered a dog in this house.
