Re: Dogs in same household keep fighting

Thank you both for your advice which I have taken seriously I really appreciate it. I agree with you it is better to re home as in a way it is not only cruel for the dogs living like this but it is causing the owner to be unhappy and it is making her ill.
Thanks again and take care
