Scottie Advice....

Hi All,

This is Angus and Molly's peep here.  We have a few questions for all you Scottie owners out there....especially those who have more than one which includes a male.  We've been talking about having Angus "fixed", however due to our schedules and the length of recovery time for him, we haven't been able to get it done.  Over the last month or so, we've noticed he seems to be more and more aggressive.  As in....anything he looks at "Angus owns".  If we're playing with Molly, he will attack her as if to say "I own them get lost".  It starts out as their bitey face fight but quickly turns to him biting her.

We have always given them equal play time and they've always been together...they're brother and sister and we brought them home at the same time. 

If we have them out for a drive, it's usually calm and they enjoy it....but if she looks at him the wrong way it's game over. 

The humourous part (if there is one) is that he's smaller than she is.  She's taller and leaner....he's got the typical short legs and muscular body.  Yet he seems to dominate.  We are hoping that if we take him out of the gene pool (har har), it will help with his behaviour.  Any other suggestions or thoughts?  Is this something anyone else has dealt with?? 

We look forward to your responses.
