puppy aggressive to adult dog

a puppy I am caring for is very aggressive to my older dog but only with food. if you give them both a treat, the puppy will finish her treat and then look for the other dog and attack her. she is not playing. should I tell the puppy no? remove her? thanks

Re: puppies and loud noises

when the puppy gets scared, I should try to act happy or just ignore the noise

small dogs

I am looking for a small dog that would go with my lab. I am looking for a small dog with a lab-like personality. I like havanese, papillons, shihtzus. would any of these breeds be good? Anyone know of another small dog breed?
thanks

new puppy

I just got a new puppy, she is a collie and 10 weeks old. I took her to my vet and the vet went to pet her and she backed away. the vet said that she is shy and I really do not want a shy dog. I had one and was looking for more of an outgoing dog. do you think it is too early to tell her personality?

shy dog

one of my sister's dogs is very shy with strangers. we want her to be less afraid. what can we do? the dog will accept treats from strangers but you can't pet the dog. the dog came from a shelter, is a shihtzu mix and lives with 2 other dogs.
